Synthetic Refrigeration Oil that necessary : Yes or No ?

The answer is yes. But only the high quality ones. Our experience over decade in the HVAC, it has defined what makes an oil efficient for the compressors working in refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Experience couple with Production Technology of synthetic lubricants was the choice.

 

Why ?

Unlike mineral oils, synthetic oils guarantee an almost absent percentage of humidity, which therefore ensures a very low incidence in terms of acid formation. And most of them are high resistance to oxidation and thermal stability. These feature are present with different viscosity grade and index which depend on application requirement.

 

Key Value ?

–  Lower humidity and less acid formation = less risk of compressor breakage ;

–  High oxidation resistance and Higher chemical and thermal stability = Higher savings ;

–  Lower rate of pollution and environmental impact ;

 

Type of Synthetic Refrigeration Oil ?

The world of lubrication has recently invested in specialization, in order to meet the needs of different circuits and many types of gas.

These features characterize our production of lubricants: we firstly consider the system and its specifications, as well as the gas or the refrigerant mixture in use.

There are several families of synthetic lubricants on the market: POE, PAG and PAO (use the kind of lubricant suggested by the manufacturer).

 

Basically Task & Role of each Synthetic Refrigeration Oil’s Type ?

POE – The Polyol Esters (POE) are characterized by the excellent lubricity and reduced solubility. These features allow the usage of low-viscosity lubricants. POE lubricants are used in HVAC & R.

PAG – is the Lubricant in the automotive sector, in particular with R-134a refrigerant gas. The PAG is selected for the vehicles A/C Systems for its better compatibility. In case of compressor replacement, a system working with PAG is easier to be flushed thanks to the reduced dispersion of this lubricant. In this way maintenance costs are even reduced. There is therefore no benefit in using different oils for automotive applications, just as indicated by the manufacturers.
