May 24, 2013 – Ultrachem has developed a new line of synthetic lubricants—the Chemlube Plus Series—for use in a variety of rotary screw and rotary vane compressors. The series is fully compatible with most OEM rotary screw compressor oils, says the company, and can be used to top off and replace existing fluids. The Chemlube Plus lubricants are made with a thermally and oxidatively stable polyol ester (POE) blend, says Ultrachem. These synthetic lubricants are formulated to form less varnish under high-temperature applications and to be more resistant to acidic intake air than polyalkylene glycol (PAG) coolants, adds the company. Under normal operating conditions, users can expect to obtain up to 11,000 hours of service life in rotary screw compressors. The line is available in ISO grades 32, 46 and 68.
