I would choose an oil which doesn't boil at the highest temperature reached, and also conserves an stable viscous behavior ($$\frac{\partial \mu}{\partial T}<<<$$) over all the temperature range in which the machine works.

Ah Faust, you beat me to it.

Half the problem is just knowing who to ask: support@nikota.com
