The use of petroleum lubricants, primarily automatic transmission fluid (ATF), in rotary screw and rotary vane compressors results in the formation of varnish and carbon. The varnish and carbon is deposited throughout the system and can cause a number of serious operational problems, resulting in excessively high maintenance costs.
Summit's Varnasolv, a compressor cleaner, can help alleviate the problems caused by varnish and carbon. Varnasolv is designed to be used as an additive in the lubricant to remove and suspend varnish while the compressor is in operation. Using Varnasolv eliminates the need for disassembling the compressor for cleaning. For maximum benefit, use Varnasolv prior to each lubricant change.
Varnasolv is recommended in rotary screw air, gas and refrigeration compressors, centrifugal compressors, gearboxes, diesel and natural gas engines, hydraulic systems and heat transfer systems.
