Lubricant Technology

The lubricants which we use in our compressors includes high quality mineral base-oils and additives which supply extra protection at every condition.They provide perfect wear protection and lower maintenance costs also extend compressors’ life too.

Vortex lubricants exceed the requirements of DIN 51506 VD-L standards and demonstrate a very high resistance to oxidation and deposit formation.

Specifications and Advantages :

Vortex lubricants prevent deposits better than convensionel mineral base oils. So maintenance periods increase. While lowering sludge and deposit formation,they maintain excellent lubrication because of thermal stability.They present long life by anti-wear and corrosion protection.

Specifications Advantages and Potential Benefits
Low Ash and Carbon Formation Improved valve performance
Reduced deposits in discharge lines
Reduced potential for fires and explosions in discharge systems
Improved compressor performance
Excellent Water Separability Longer oil life
Improved filter life
Lower maintenance costs
Mükemmel Su Ayrılabilirliği Less carryover to downstream equipment
Reduced sludge formation in crankcases and discharge lines
Reduced blockage of coalescers
Less potential for emulsion formation
Effective Rust and Corrosion Protection Improved protection of valves and reduced wear of rings and cylinders.

Applications :

Vortex Lubricants are suitable for single and multistage compressors. They are particularly effective for continuous high temperature operation with discharge temperatures up to 150º C.They are appropriate for screw compressors.Also proper for poor valve performance or deposit formation.
