Ultrachem recently introduced a new line of high-performance synthetic lubricants for use in a wide variety of rotary-screw and rotary-vane compressors. The Chemlube Plus Series lubricants are fully compatible with most rotary-screw compressor oils and can be used to top off and replace existing fluids.
Made with a thermally and oxidatively stable polyolester (POE) blend, the synthetic lubricants were designed to take advantage of the lubricating properties inherent in polyolesters while still being economical by combining them with less expensive synthetics.
The lubricants offer several performance benefits such as thermal and oxidative stability, extended drain intervals, reduced oil disposal, wide operating temperature range, anti-wear protection, compatibility with most compressor oils, high flash point and improved safety.
Typical industrial applications for the Chemlube Plus Series include rotary-screw compressors, rotary-vane compressors, centrifugal compressors and vacuum pumps.
The fully synthetic premium lubricants are formulated to form less varnish under high-temperature applications and be more resistant to acidic intake air than polyalkylene glycol (PAG) coolants. Under normal operating conditions, users can expect to obtain up to 11,000 hours of lubricant service life in rotary screw compressors. The line is available in ISO grades 32, 46 and 68.
