Range of oils is designed for carbon-dioxide compressors
Advanced Engineering is introducing a range of compressor oils to the UK market. Fuchs Lubricants is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of specialist oils for niche applications, including what is said to be Europe’s biggest line of compressor lubricants — and which includes a full range of oils designed for use with air-conditioning systems using carbon dioxide as the refrigerant.
Vern Klein, sales director with Advanced Engineering, says, ‘CO2 is set to be the fastest-growing refrigerant for the next few years. However, because it is used at such high pressures, the right choice of oil is crucial for the life of compressor bearings and other components.’
