BP Energol LPT 32 - Refrigeration compressor oil

BP Energol LPT 32 - Refrigeration compressor oil

 

Description
The Energol LPT grades are refrigeration compressor lubricants formulated from highly refined naphtenic base oils for use in both large industrial and small domestic refrigeration units.

 

Applications
The Energol LPT range is formulated to function as lubricants, coolants as well as sealants in refrigerating compressors. They maintain good lubrication properties at the high temperatures reached during the compression phase and good fluidity at the low temperatures within the evaporators. Excellent lubrication of the moving parts in the compressor as well as recycling of the oil, entrained into the system by the refrigerant, are therefore ensured.
The chemical stability of the Energol LPT oils prevents them from reacting with the refrigerants used in refrigeration systems to form potentially disruptive breakdown products. All Energol LPT grades are suitable for use in systems using Ammonia (NH3) or halogenated hydrocarbons. They can also be used where good low temperature flow properties are required in the lubricant.

 

Main Benefits
The BP range of Energol LPT oils ensure long and trouble-free operation of refrigeration systems through a combination of:

  • High thermal and chemical stability
  • Good temperature/viscosity behaviour
  • Good low temperature flow properties

BP Enersyn RC-S 32 - Synthetic Rotary Air Compressor Lubricant

BP Enersyn RC-S 32 - Synthetic Rotary Air Compressor Lubricant

 

Description
A range of premium synthetic (non-mineral) lubricants, based on polyalpha-olefin materials.
The lubricants are fully formulated, and contain anti-wear additives to enhance lubrication, anti-oxidants to minimize oxidation and the formation of deposits, and corrosion inhibitors to control the effects of moisture contamination.

 

Applications
These lubricants have been designed to provide a high level of performance in air compressors working in severe conditions of duty.

The ISO 32 grade is recommended for rotary-screw compressors, and the ISO 68 grade for rotary-vane type.

With their low carbon-formation tendencies and high oxidation resistance, they can also be used in circulatory systems of plain and rolling bearings operating at high temperatures - as in paper-making machinery.

Enersyn RC-S lubricants fully meet the currently defined requirements of the ISO-L-DAH classification for rotary-screw compressor mineral oils, and show excellent oxidation resistance, as assessed by a rotary-compressor oxidation test (ROCOT) drawn from a modified Pneurop oxidation test using Iron Naphthenate catalyst at 120 °C for 1000 hours. Although oxidation test limits of the ISO-LDAC/ G/H/J specifications have not yet been defined, and the ROCOT tests are indicative of high stability, particularly bearing in mind the long hours run. The best evidence for the excellent oxidation stability of the Enersyn RC-S lubricants and their overall high performance is the entirely satisfactory results of service trials carried out using rotary-screw compressors operating in severe conditions (120 °C) for over 4000 hours with no change of lubricant.

 

Main Benefits

  • Excellent anti-wear performance in arduous conditions of heat and moisture gives long service life for compressors.
  • Compressor internals are kept in clean condition, thereby minimizing maintenance costs.
  • Zinc-free formulation minimizes blockage of oilfilters in the presence of water, and ensures excellent filterability and lubricant cleanliness.
  • Rapid water-separation and powerful anticorrosion characteristics enable the adverse effects of moisture contamination to be avoided.
  • A balanced combination of anti-foam and air release properties ensures rapid separation of air and lubricant in the coalescer equipment, with consequent longer air-filter life and lower carry-over of lubricant.
  • Fully compatible with Energol RC -R mineral oils.
  • Compatible with compressor seals of the type normally used with mineral oils.
  • Low volatility compared to mineral oil, reduces lubricant carry-over.

Castrol Aircol PD 32 - Air compressor lubricants - 2165

Castrol Aircol PD 32 - Air compressor lubricants - 2165

 

Castrol Aircol PD oils are a range of compressor oils, based upon highly refined mineral oils, which are intended for the lubrication of both reciprocating and rotary air compressors. For lubrication of rotors, bearings and gears in rotary compressors, especially the oil flooded screw type with lubricant drain cycles of up to 2000 hours under normal use.

 

Application

The Castrol Aircol PD grades are ashless oils recommended for the lubrication of rotors, bearings and gears in rotary compressors, especially the oil flooded screw type with delivery temperatures of up to 120°C. Castrol Aircol PD compressor oils have excellent oxidation resistance and low carbon forming tendencies and meet the requirements of the DIN 51506 VD-L classification of lubricants for compressors having air discharge temperatures up to 220ºC. Castrol Aircol PD compressor oils also have sufficient anti-wear performance, as measured in the FZG Gear Test, to allow their use in certain screw compressors where drive between the screws is transmitted by the rotor faces themselves. The modern tendency in air compressor design is towards higher capacities from smaller units, with higher loads and temperatures leading to greater demands upon the lubricant.

Castrol Aircol PD meets the requirements (for appropriate viscosity grade) of major compressor manufacturers such as Atlas Copco, Champion, Sullair, Compair/Broomwade, Ingersoll-Rand, Kaeser and Bauer.

 

Advantages

  • Excellent water separation characteristics which allow condensation to readily separate from the oil, minimising the risk of emulsions which could block the oil separator element.
  • Fully inhibited against corrosion which enables protection even when operating under humid conditions.
  • Good thermal stability, low volatility and low carbon formation reduces the risk of fire and explosion and leads to longer operating life (up to 2000 hours).
  • Low deposit forming tendencies extends oil change intervals and provides longer air filter life which contributes to a reduction in maintenance costs.
  • Excellent coalescing properties mean little carry over of oil in the air stream.
