Eastman Turbo Oil 2380 marks half a century in-service
Kingsport, TN, March 24, 2015 – One of the most widely used turbine oils in the commercial aviation industry, Eastman Turbo Oil 2380, has been in service for half a century.
The newly rebranded Eastman Turbo Oil 2380, formally BPTO 2380, was designed to achieve an optimum balance of properties. The balance of cold ambient temperature viscosity, load-carrying capability, cleanliness and elastomer compatibility was at the forefront of the considerations in designing Eastman Turbo Oil 2380.
Used in commercial aircraft, business jets, helicopters, and military aircraft, the product was originally developed by Exxon, which was purchased by BP and earlier this year by Eastman Chemical Company.
“Over one billion hours of safe operations have gone into making Eastman Turbo Oil 2380 a leader in turbine engine lubricants,” said Rodger Harris, Eastman Aviation Solutions Global Sales Director. “The product features exceptional accessory performance, excellent load carrying capability, and the best low-temperature viscosity, making it the best choice for many aircraft.”
Eastman Turbo Oil 2380 was among the first turbine oils to be qualified and approved for MIL-PRF-23699 STD (Standard) class and subsequently SAE AS5780 SPC (Standard Performance Capability) class.
