1. Low solubility of multiple gases
The solubility of above-mentioned gases is much lower in Cetus PAG than in mineral based lubricants. Therefore, the viscosity drop of the lubricant in service is minimal. Oil film thickness, anti-wear and anti-foam performance of the formulation are maintained, and proper wear protection can be guaranteed, even at low cylinder feed rates.
2. Moisture tolerance
Cetus PAG will easily mix with water, for which the gases should be dry. The product tolerates up to 4%wt water before hazing at 80°C however, and has been evaluated for corrosion resistance with 2.5%wt water content.
3. Extended lubricant life
The robust formulation offers reliable, extended lubricant service life.
4. Reducing inventory
Formulated to resist dimerization of butadiene and to prevent the generation of solid deposits. Switching to mineral based compressor oil is no longer required in this case, which can help to reduce inventory and operational complexity.
