  • Extended oil service life
    Outstanding oxidation stability of the polyalphaolefin base fluid and inhibitor system resists oil breakdown at the elevated temperatures encountered in compressor service, helping to extend oil drain intervals beyond those achieved with conventional lubricants.
  • Protects equipment
    Polyalphaolefin base fluid helps to provide an oil film to protect highly loaded parts against wear under high temperature operating conditions, as well as during low temperature start-up. Effective inhibitor system helps provide excellent rust and corrosion protection while the anti-wear additive minimises wear under severe operating conditions.
  • Smooth operation
    Outstanding thermal and oxidation stability enables the polyalphaolefin lubricant to resist deposit formation in the heat of the compression cycle, even under severe service conditions.
