Recent uncertainties and reshaping of world economies have reinforced the need for localized efforts to do more with less. Because of this, it is increasingly important that all systems and operations run efficiently with minimal maintenance downtime.
For closed-loop refrigeration systems, maximizing efficiency begins at the heart of the system with proper compressor lubrication. Refrigeration lubricants are responsible for many functions, all of which ultimately contribute to overall operation efficiency, including lubricating internal parts for wear protection, removing heat generated during compression, acting as a fluid seal, inhibiting rust and corrosion within the system, and cleaning the system.
Although once widely popular, naphthenic refrigeration oils are prone to creating operational inefficiencies due to excessive oil carryover and sludge formation. Today’s operational requirements call for advanced lubrication solutions designed to outperform the shortcomings of naphthenic products.
Summit’s RHT Series refrigeration compressor oils are highly refined, hydrotreated ammonia compressor lubricants specially designed to function under the stringent requirements of closed-loop ammonia refrigeration systems. Summit’s RHT Series lubricants offer superior resistance to thermal and chemical degradation to keep your refrigeration system running clean and at top efficiency.
The RHT Series answers many of the shortcomings that naphthenic oils produce. The performance advantages of RHT Series lubricants versus naphthenic oils include:
- Reduced oil carryover
- Superior cleanliness
- Superior chemical and thermal stability
- Enhanced wear protection
- Lower foaming tendency
- Extended oil drain interval capability
- Less oil make-up
