BP Energol RC-R 46 - Premium Air Compressor Oil

BP Energol RC-R 46 - Premium Air Compressor Oil

 

Description
These oils are formulated from highly refined mineral base oils, and incorporate additives that minimize oxidation, deposit-formation, foaming and filter-blocking.
Furthermore, they enhance load-carrying and antiwear properties and combat the effects of water contamination and prevent corrosion.

 

Applications

Energol RC-R 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. Under these conditions it is important that the oil maintains its high lubrication performance. The grades in this range are suitable for both static and mobile systems, operating at ambient temperatures ranging from -25 °C to 50°C. Most rotary applications call for ISO 32 or ISO 46 grades and the higher-viscosities ISO 68 and 100 may be used satisfactorily in reciprocating compressors.
The Energol RC-R oils meet the requirements of the following standards:

  • ISO DP 6521 for mineral oils
  • L-DAA and L-DAB for reciprocating air compressors
  • L-DAH and L -DAG for rotary air compressors DIN 51352 p. II (Pneurop Oxidation Test) and DIN 51506 VD-L

These oils are approved by:

  • Atlas Copco -Sullair
  • Compair / Luchard -Crepelle
  • Burton Corblin -Consolidated Pneumatic Tool

 

Main Benefits

  • Low deposit-forming tendency
  • Prevention of oil-filter blockage in the presence of water.
  • Excellent anti-wear performance to extend service life of compressors.
  • Rapid separation of oil/air in the air -coalescer for long air-filter life and lower oil-carryover.
  • Powerful water -separation and anti-corrosion characteristics to counter adverse effects of moisture contamination.

BP Energol LPT 46 - Refrigeration compressor oil

BP Energol LPT 46 - 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

Castrol Aircol PD 46 - Air compressor lubricants - 2166

Castrol Aircol PD 46 - Air compressor lubricants - 2166

 

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.
