Environmentally Friendly ROOTS™ Meter Oil

 In direct response to expressed concerns for personal safety and environmental issues,DMD-Roots is introducing a new meter oil that is NOT rated hazardous by OSHA or the EPA and contains no substances subject to reporting or planning requirements under SARA TITLE III.

Most hydrocarbon-based oils used in the natural gas industry have limited occupational exposure limits.  Often these oils contain a dye that is added for improved viewing capability.  A commonly used component of the dye, Ethyl Benzene, produces a higher than desired toxicity level.  Our new and environmentally friendly ROOTS™ meter oil is still red in color but contains no toxic or hazardous ingredients.  The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for our new ROOTS™ meter oil permits handling with standard neoprene type gloves in lieu of Nitrite gloves recommended with most lubricants.  The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is available in hard copy or can be downloaded electronically via the link towards the end of this document.

Our new ROOTS™ meter oil is specially formulated and blended from a non-hazardous, state of the art R&O AW hydraulic oil additive package that inhibits oxidation and foaming.  The oil can also be used in any Series A1 (LM-MA) or Series B2 (TQM) meter and can be safely blended with previously approved ROOTS™ meter oils such as ROOTS® Versi-Temp 2 Meter Oil (Shell Tellus T15) and Grade 50 (Shell Diala AX).  The resulting oil color will vary depending on the quantities of each oil used in the mixture. Draining the old oil before adding the new oil is optional if oil color clarity is of concern.

Using this opportunity to address another customer concern, several new container sizes are being introduced.  While a sufficient quantity of oil will still be provided free of charge with each shipment for the initial filling of the meter, the net result is a reduced quantity of residual meter oil requiring special handling.  The new quantities are reflected in the attached ROOTS™ Meter Oil Application Chart.
