Yes, for an Alemite oil mist generator with a viscosity of 460 cSt, you could consider using an ISO VG 460 mist oil. Some examples of mist oils in this viscosity range include Mobil DTE Oil Heavy Medium, Shell Omala S4 GX 460, and Chevron Rando HDZ 460. It's important to consult the manufacturer's recommendations and specifications to ensure that the oil you choose is compatible with your particular equipment. 


When selecting a mist oil for your Alemite oil mist generator, it's important to consider the viscosity of the oil as well as its compatibility with the generator's materials and intended application.

Based on your specification of 460 cSt viscosity, you may want to consider using an ISO 460 grade industrial lubricating oil that is suitable for misting applications. Some potential options include:

  • Mobil DTE Oil Heavy Medium ISO VG 460
  • Shell Omala S4 GXV 460
  • Chevron Rykon Premium Oil MV 460
  • ExxonMobil Mobilith SHC 460

It's important to consult with the manufacturer's recommendations for the oil mist generator to ensure that the oil you choose is compatible with the generator's materials and is suitable for the intended application. Additionally, you may want to consider the specific environmental conditions in which the generator will be used, such as temperature and humidity, when selecting an appropriate oil. Hope so this suggestion will help you.
