Scoop / Gob Accelerator Lubricant


  • Enhanced sealing and lubrication within the ‘Shotgun’ maximises gob delivery performance allowing increased production rates
  • Readily atomises producing micro fine mists or sprays which provide excellent wetting out characteristics, essential for optimum shotgun performance where very limited clearances are being employed
  • Exceptionally low order of toxicity promotes a greatly improved production environment from both operators health and safety and component hygiene standards
  • Severe refining techniques have resulted in producing a water clear liquid, which greatly reduces the possibility of marking on the finished component


These VITROLIS DL grades are manufactured from severely refined mineral hydrocarbon base stocks producing extremely high quality, water clear lubricants with an exceptionally low order of toxicity.

VITROLIS DL LIGHT and HEAVY meet the requirements essential in the highly specialised area of ‘Shotgun’ lubrication where new generation, highly rated production units are being introduced into the glass container manufacturing process.

They offer excellent sealing and lubrication between the molten glass and the ‘Shotgun’ barrel, essential to convert and maintain the optimum pneumatic power generated by these units into effective acceleration of the newly sheared gob.

In addition, they are ideally suited to conventional type scoop lubrication where improved gob loading coupled to low residue formation is required.

VITROLIS DL LIGHT and HEAVY are particularly recommended for applications where hygiene and health and safety aspects are of paramount importance. In particular these aspects are often regarded as essential when the very strict demands of the food, drink or cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries are to be considered

Mixing Instructions

VITROLIS DL LIGHT and HEAVY are neat lubricants which do not require dilution before use.


Drums should be stored on their sides in a clean, dry place and should be protected from extremes of temperature.
