The Energol RC-R™ compressor oil range of lubricants are based upon highly refined mineral oils and carefully chosen additives. They are intended for the lubrication of rotary and reciprocating compressors.
The Energol RC-R grades are ashless oils recommended for the lubrication of rotors, bearings and gears in rotary compressors, especially the oil flooded screw type. Energol RC-R can be used for either normal or severe duty lubrication of reciprocating and rotary drip-feed air compressors, as defined by ISO 6743. Energol RC-R compressor oils exhibit low carbon forming tendencies and meet the requirements of the DIN 51506 VDL classification for reciprocating compressors having air discharge temperatures up to 220°C. Selection of the required viscosity grade should be based upon the compressor manufacturers’ recommendation however as a general guide Energol RC-R 32 and 46 are suitable for oil flooded rotary compressors, whereas Energol RC-R 68 and 100 would be selected for lubricating the crankcase and cylinders of reciprocating compressors.
Energol RC-R 150 is recommended for sliding-vane compressors, or for reciprocating units at high ambient temperatures. The Energol RC-R range is fully compatible with nitrile, silicone and fluoropolymer seal materials.
Energol RC-R grades are classified as follows:
Energol RC-R grades meet the requirements of:
