Excellent resistance to oxidative and thermal breakdown guards against oil thickening, deposits and sludge formation. It helps to keep the compressor operating at its design efficiency and performance standards. It also extends fluid life, even in the presence of impurities in the ammonia refrigerant, saving on downtime and change-out costs.
This improves system efficiency and performance as less ammonia is absorbed into the refrigeration lubricant and vice versa. This ensures that optimal viscosity is maintained and can reduce foaming and unwanted product carry-over to piping, valves and filters.
REFLO is significantly less volatile than comparable fluids at high temperatures. With proper change-out procedures, this may result in reduced oil carry-over and fluid consumption. Lower oil carry-over also reduces sludging and deposit formation in evaporators, in turn decreasing related maintenance costs.
