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