ANDEROL introduces EVEREST™ brand refrigeration lubricants
Today’s refrigeration marketplace demands more energy-efficient compressor equipment, using greener refrigerant gases such as hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gas. Everest™ refrigeration lubricants are designed to impart optimum performance, lower energy consumption and longer service life to these air-conditioning systems.
HFC refrigerant gas is considered to have a reduced effect on the stratospheric ozone layer, compared to the chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant gases they are replacing. HFCs are already used in Europe and the U.S. and are increasingly being selected for use in China and elsewhere.
Chemtura’s EVEREST brand of synthetic polyol ester refrigeration lubricants are designed to impart optimum performance and longer service life to today’s new energy efficient and environmentally friendly HFC-based refrigeration and A/C systems. EVEREST products are also an excellent choice for R-22 and R-12 retrofits using refrigerants such as R-422A, R-422D, R-417A and R-427. EVEREST refrigeration lubricants are available in viscosity grades from ISO 10 to ISO 220.
Formulated versions containing anti-wear and extreme pressure additives are also available for select viscosity grades for extremely demanding applications. There is an EVEREST refrigeration lubricant for applications ranging from small hermetic home appliances to large scale industrial centrifugal and screw chiller compressors.
Now, with the introduction by Chemtura of its EVEREST branded refrigeration lubricants, ANDEROL offers these products on a direct basis to OEM’s and through selected distributors for the service market. The product offering is extensive, but should you have unique requirements, we are able to design a lubricant that exactly meets your performance requirements.
All Everest polyol ester refrigeration lubricants are manufactured to exacting standards of high purity, low residual acid value, low color and low moisture. Chemtura Corporation is the world’s largest manufacturer of polyol esters with special expertise in the production of POEs for refrigeration lubricants.
