- Recommended for use in refrigeration compressors and air conditioner systems using fluorinated hydrocarbon refrigerants, or ammonia.
- Recommended for use in compressor systems running on fluorinated hydrocarbon refrigerants where minimum evaporator temperatures of –45°C (R12), -35°C (R22) and –25°C. (R502) are present.
Low temperature performance and protection
Capella WF is a robust and highly stable advanced technology compressor lubricant specifically formulated to deliver high performance thermal stability, particularly in the very low temperatures present in latest-generation compressors in refrigeration equipment and air conditioning systems.Designed with specially formulated naphthenic pale oils and high performance temperature stability additive systems, these advanced fluids are designed to meet and exceed major compressor manufacturers performance requirements, delivering a very low freon floc temperature of –45°C.
High stability performance
Capella WF’s leading edge low temperature performance optimises system efficiency and service life through very robust and highly reliable chemical and thermal stability. Capella WF is highly resistant to waxing at very low temperatures, protecting expansion valve efficiency and capillary performance, and ensuring smooth operation over very long service periods, with the minimum of downtime.This efficient compressor operation is enhanced through Capella WF’s chemically stable performance in the presence of ammonia and fluorinated hydrocarbons such as R-12 and R-22, minimising varnish and sludge formation over extended operating periods. Capella WF’s high performance formulation minimises water content to very low levels, delivering maximum corrosion protection, high-efficiency ice-free operation, and extended equipment service life.
Capella WF holds the following OEM approvals for several grades:
- Sulzer; Bitzer; Tecumsec; Carrier; York; Sabroe; J & E Hall
