Capella HFC oils are premium grade fully synthetic oils for the lubrication of compressors used in refrigeration and air conditioning systems. Capella HFC oils are blended exclusively with specially selected polyol esters (POE).
Capella HFC oils have been developed in cooperation with major refrigerant compressor manufacturers worldwide, especially suitable for non-ozone depleting FC/HFC refrigerants, such as R134a, R404A, R507, R410A, R407C. Also suitable for hydrocarbon refrigerants (example: propane, polypropylene, isobutane, …) and HFO/HFC refrigerants. The product series are especially suited for the first-fill and retrofit lubrication of refrigeration compressors in provision and industrial refrigeration plants, as well as in air-conditioning systems and heat pump equipment.
Capella HFC oils are not recommended for use in ammonia refrigerating systems, where Capella WF or Capella A are recommended instead.
Note: Capella HFC oils readily absorb moisture from the ambient air, which can cause system performance problems. Capella HFC packages should be kept sealed until time of use and should not be reused once opened.

1. Efficient, Trouble-free Operation
Exhibits excellent oil-refrigerant miscibility properties with HFC-refrigerants over a wide range of operating temperatures, which helps ensure adequate lubrication ofthe compressor bearings and to facilitate oil return from the refrigeration system.
2. Minimum Downtime
Provides excellent thermal and chemical stability in the presence of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants. Demonstrated excellent compressor cleanliness with absence of any copper transfer in numerous compressor tests.
3. Lower Maintenance Costs
High resistance to oxidation, even at high operating temperatures, which helps guarantee a long service life. Provides excellent lubricity, even in the presence of refrigerants.
