Refrigeration Oil

Refrigeration Oils are developed for refrigeration compressors and systems requiring ozone friendly HFC refrigerants. These Environmental Awareness Lubricants are developed to give:

  • Excellent evaporator cleanliness.
  • Less compressor wear.
  • Low temperature fluidity.
  • High system efficiency and proper oil return in refrigeration system designs.

 

Applications :

Refrigeration Oils are hygroscopic and care must be taken to avoid moisture absorption during handling. Packages should be closed properly when not in use, and small packaging should be preferred. Product should not be transferred to plastic containers that can allow moisture ingress.

Applications include:

  1. Household refrigeration such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and heat pumps.
  2. Industrial applications such as food preparation and freezing, as well as cryogenic applications.
  3. Commercial refrigeration applications such as business, mall and hotel air conditioning, and low temperature transportation.

Handling health & Safety :

Lubricants consisting of highly refined mineral oils with specification additives. In normal conditions of use, this lubricant presents no particular toxic hazard. All lubricants, of any kind should be handled with great care, particularly avoiding can contact with the skin.

Prevent any splashing, and keep away from combustible materials. Store under cover and away from any risk of pollution. Dispose off the used oil correctly; don’t pour down drains, into watercourses or the soil.
