best refrigaration oil for industrial compressors

The role of oil in the refrigeration process

The compressor is considered the heart of the refrigeration system, acting to pump the refrigerant (ammonia vapor) through the system.

Oil is a necessary ingredient in screw compressor function for the following reasons:

  • It acts as a lubricant, minimizing wear due to friction.
  • It seals the mating surfaces of rotors.
  • It minimizes internal leakage of the vapor compressed in the enclosing housing, resulting in increased compressor efficiency.
  • It also influences other facetsof compressor operation because industrial refrigeration compressors operate in an “oil-flooded” configuration.
