Abstract VM-1 and VM-5 mineral oils used as working fluids in high vacuum pumps are obtained by high-vacuum distillation of a pharmaceutical white oil produced in Balkhany lube crude which is in limited supply and therefore must be replaced by a new raw material. An investigation of a napthenic neutral oil containing 90% saturated hydrocarbons demonstrated the feasibility of this oil as a raw material for the production of diffusion oil pumps. The characteristics of the diffusion pump oil VM-8 obtained by this processing scheme are listed. The oil was tested on NVD-015 pumps. The favorable results have made it possible to develop and approve specifications for diffusion pump oils in VM-8 and VM-9.
