Vapor Recovery Units (VRUs) come with many challenges in today’s production sites, since they have to adapt to new drilling technologies and the subsequent collection of different gases and gas mixtures. Gas analysis can vary widely day-to-day.
Summit’s PGS Series lubricants are designed to accommodate these fluctuations in the gas stream while reducing common problems seen with other lubricant types.
With the PGS Series, you can avoid these issues:
- high oil carry-over
- sludge formation
As you know, these problems lead to unnecessary operating costs and high oil consumption.
But Summit’s PGS Series lubricants are Polyalkylene Glycol (PAG) based to provide:
- excellent synthetic properties
- low pour points
- high viscosity indices
- decreased thinning of the lubricant by hydrocarbon dilution
- consistent operating viscosity for extended lubricant life and drain intervals
Additionally, our PGS products are formulated with additive technologies to:
- control oxidation
- provide anti-wear to bearings and rotors
- inhibit corrosive gases
If you’re tired of your VRU using excessive oil or being down due to unnecessary maintenance, contact Summit’s Gas Compressor Team to see how you can save money in both the short-term and long-term.
