ChevronTexaco Crater® 5X
Categories: Fluid; Lubricant

Material Notes: Texaco Crater lubricants delivers value through:
  • Low environmental impact — Contains a carrier solvent that is a non-ozone depleting diluent.
  • Good water resistance — Strong resistance to water washout.
  • Long equipment life — High film strength provides excellent anti-wear protection.
  • Reduced operating cost — Long lasting lubrication film reduces frequency of repeated application and, therefore, overall quantity of lubricant used.
  • Flexibility to use in wet conditions — Resists rust, supporting longer gear life, and assures good film strength even in a wet environment.

Texaco Crater lubricants are formulated with high viscosity mineral oils, tackiness additives, wetting agents and rust inhibitors to protect metal surfaces.

Texaco Crater 0 is a straight mineral oil lubricant.

Texaco Crater 2X and 5X are compounded residual oils.

Texaco Crater Fluids M and H are compounded with residual oils and a high flash solvent to provide easier applications.

They meet the performance requirements of AGMA Lubricants Nos.14R and 15R, respectively.

Texaco Crater CSF is a sprayable lithium soap based open gear lubricant which is chlorinated solvent free.

Texaco Crater is recommended:

  • for wire ropes, flexible couplings
  • for open gears of mine hoists
  • for gears and sliding surfaces of drag lines and shovel, ball mills, mixers
  • for construction and dredging equipment
  • for chain and sprocket lubrication
  • as a tenacious fifth wheel lubricant

Typical test data are average values only. Minor variations which do not affect product performance are to be expected in normal manufacturing.


  1. Minimum operating temperature is the lowest temperature at which a grease, already in place, could be expected to provide lubrication. Most greases cannot be pumped at these minimum temperatures.
  2. Maximum operating temperature is the highest temperature at which the grease could be used with frequent (daily) relubrication.
  3. Determined on mineral oil extracted by vacuum filtration.
