Refrigeration compressor lubrication

Speciality lubricants for your refrigeration installations

Speciality lubricants for your refrigeration installations

The right selection of high-quality lubricants is essential key element for the smooth running of your refrigerating compressors. Refrigeration compressors are responsible for most of the energy consumption in some food production facilities.

Compressor oils from Klüber Lubrication are manufactured with much less sulphur content, less gas reactions, cleaner filters and coalescers and greater heat transfer efficiency with low oil carryover.

Benefits of our oils

Extended oil lifetime Lower tendency to form residues, less change in viscosity and high thermal stability.
Less volatile fractions Lower evaporation loss and less change in viscosity results in extended oil change intervals. Due to its high chemical stability, chain molecules are preserved.
High efficiency/reduced lubricant consumption  High chemical stability, combined with high purity leads to less gas reactions. Less residue formed, lower oil carryover, leading to lower oil consumption. 
Longer filter lifetime High purity of lubricants allow sustainable operation without residue formation.
Reduction of spare part costs Reduced spare part costs in maintenance due to extended oil change intervals.

Klüber Summit RHT 68

Klüber Summit RHT 68 primarily focuses on ammonia, but can also be used with other refrigerants, for example R 22. It is a hydrotreated API group II oil, which means this product is very inert and will not react with ammonia. A very low content of sulphur results in no formation of sludge or varnish.

Less evaporation loss = less oil consumption
50% less oil carryover when compared to conventional naphthenic oil

Less change in viscosity = less residue formation = longer oil lifetime
Practical experience shows that oil filters in ammonia installations working with RHT 68 series can last up to 10,000 hours

Successful Case Study

One of the largest processed frozen food manufacturers in Malaysia experienced a reduction in oil consumption as a result of an extended oil change intervals and longer life of spare parts after switching to Klüber Summit RHT 68. They also saw a significant reduction in energy consumption since using our product.
