Syndustrial PAG Compressor Oil is a premium quality synthetic lubricant developed for use in oil-flooded rotary screw, rotary vane and reciprocating compressors processing natural gas, carbon dioxide or other hydrocarbon gases. It is specially formulated to resist hydrocarbon dilution and oil absorption in this type of service.
Syndustrial PAG Compressor Oil is available in five viscosity grades: ISO 46, 68, 100, 150 and 220. It is formulated with synthetic polyalkylene glycol (PAG) base oils and carefully selected additives to provide long service life, excellent wear protection, resistance to washout and lubricant carryover, and protection against rust and corrosion. Special inhibitors help resist corrosion caused by hydrogen sulfide when processing sour gas. The combination of outstanding oxidation resistance and thermal stability at high temperatures, a very high viscosity index, and excellent low-temperature properties makes it suitable for year-round use over a wide temperature range.
Syndustrial PAG Compressor Oil is highly resistant to hydrocarbon gas dilution and absorption into the gas stream. Solubility of gas in the oil causes reduced lubricant viscosity, which can result in cylinder scoring and high wear rates. Absorption of the oil into the gas stream causes high oil consumption and carryover into the process gas, and can cause depletion of the protective oil film on the cylinder walls. Resistance to gas dilution and oil absorption helps maintain proper viscosity and oil film thickness to protect against wear.
Note: Syndustrial PAG Compressor Oil is not compatible with petroleum compressor oils. Care should be taken to avoid mixing the two products. When switching over from mineral oil to Syndustrial PAG Compressor Oil, a complete flush, drain and refill should be performed.
