Compressor Oil: RPL-H Series

Series Range:

• RPL-H32 - Rotary / Vane
• RPL-H46 - Rotary / Vane
• RPL-H68 - Rotary / Vane
• RPL-H100 - Rotary / Vane / Reciprocating

Product Description:

RPL-H32/46/68 are designed for use in oil-flooded rotary screw and rotary vane type compressors. Because the lubricant is injected directly into the air stream of these compressors, superior lubricant oxidation and thermal stability is required to minimize the deposits, lacquer and sludge build-up especially in the heat exchangers. Less deposits result in reduced component wear, improved compressor efficiency and less downtime needed to change the lubricant and replace parts.

RPL-H100 is designed for both crankcase and cylinder lubrication in reciprocating compressors. Its superior oxidation and thermal stability provide reduced carbon build-up on discharge valves, resulting in lower maintenance costs and downtime. Its low volatility reduces the hazard of compressor fires and / or explosions and improves compressor efficiency.

Series Description:

The RPL-H Series of compressor oils are blended using 100% Synthetic PAO and Ester base fluids with specially designed additives for long lasting compressor lubrication under more severe operating conditions. They enable extended oil drain intervals, protection against wear, rust and corrosion, extra-low volatility, and superior oxidation and thermal stability.

The RPL-H Series are designed for low vapor pressure meaning less lubricant is vaporized and carried downstream from the compressor. This leads to fewer problems caused by oil carry-over to air tools, instruments or manufactured goods. It can also lead to fewer air filter changes and less oil that might be removed by the air / oil separators.

Features and Benefits:

• High film strength, l Low vapor pressure, reduced oil carry-over

• Protection against oil oxidation at high discharge temperatures reduces sludge and varnish deposits on valve and other working parts

• Compressor efficiency is improved through cleaner separators, valves and filters

• Excellent anti-wear properties and water tolerance

• Non-foaming, excellent rust and corrosion protection

• Separates readily from water, extended drain intervals

• High flash point above 480F (249C) which reduces recompression and fire hazard risks

• Improves sealing for better compression.

• Equipment runs cooler with less energy demands.

Method of Application:

Follow regular lubrication instructions as provided with original equipment. It is recommended to thoroughly drain and clean systems prior to switching over. RPL-H Series compressor oils contain esters which may not be fully compatible with other compressor oils. Once switched, the RPL-ACO Series typically extends lube intervals up to 8 times conventional lubricants and often longer. It is recommended that oil drain intervals be established by monitoring the oil condition with lubricant analysis to be certain. Lubricant requirements vary with the type of compressor and may be further influenced by operating pressures, temperatures and other factors.

Please note: RPL-H Series may not be fully compatible with all materials and are not recommended for certain types of seals, paints and plastics.
