The new generation of refrigeration lubricants are asked to do a lot: lubricate internal parts, remove heat generated during compression, clean the system, act as a fluid seal and reduce energy requirements, control foam, reduce noise and much more. Summit Industrial Product’s research and development team has spent years refining the formulations of our refrigeration lubricants to meet specific industry needs.
Our extensive line of refrigeration oils are built to offer less oil carryover, less bearing wear, stay in grade viscosity, longer oil drain intervals, and great system efficiency. Backed with our free oil analysis program and unmatched customer service, the positive results of switching to specialized Summit lubrications can be staggering. Are you asking enough from your refrigeration lubricant?
The need to cool specific environments to either keep food from becoming rancid or to keep us comfortable during the summer requires the use of sophisticated compressors. Refrigeration lubricants lubricate internal parts of refrigeration compressors, remove heat generated during compression, clean the system, act as a fluid seal and reduce energy requirements. They are used in cold storage warehouses to prevent spoilage and preserve all kinds of goods from meats, fish, and seafood to vegetables, flowers, breads and milk products. They are also used to assist in the carbonization of soft drinks, beer and sparkling wine by cooling the liquid down so that the CO2-carbon dioxide will STAY dissolved in the beverage so when you open the bottle and relief the pressure you see the CO2 bubbles slowly come out of solution or make some foam.
