Petro-Canada Reflo 68A (Available in 20L & 205L)

Categories: ,




Petro-Canada Reflo 68 is a full synthetic polyalphaolefin/alkyl benzene based ammonia refrigeration compressor fluid used in industrial refrigeration systems. Petro-Canada Reflo 68 is formulated to outperform solvent refined paraffinic and naphthenic refrigerant oils by extending service life while significantly reducing operating costs. Petro-Canada Reflo 68 is specifically formulated to outperform straight polyalphaolefin refrigeration compressor fluids by offering better seal performance, while maintaining excellent control over foaming and deposit formations. The result is a refrigeration compressor fluid that offers reliable, long-term performance with significant operational cost savings.Superior Performance BenefitsExtreme low temperature performancePetro-Canada Reflo 68 is completely wax free and can operate at temperatures well below conventional mineral oils.Excellent operation at low evaporator temperatures.None of the wax deposit problems associated with paraffinics when used at very low temperatures.Lower oil volatility reduces fluid consumption and maintenance costsSignificantly less volatile than solvent refined paraffinics or naphthenics at high temperaturesResults in less oil carryover to the refrigeration system’s low temperature sideLower oil carryover also reduces plugging and deposit formation in evaporators, lowering maintenance costsLower solubility in ammonia improves system efficiency and performancePetro-Canada Reflo 68 is less soluble in ammonia refrigerant than solvent refined paraffinics and NaphthenicsLess ammonia is absorbed into the compressor fluid, which can reduce gas entrainment in separator tanks and increase system efficiencyLower concentrations of ammonia in the fluid allows it to maintain viscosity, so it lubricates better, reducing wearLess compressor fluid is absorbed into the ammonia, reducing the potential for fluid to block piping, valves and filtersLower concentration of compressor fluid in the ammonia also helps to maintain refrigerant purity, improving system efficiency and performanceSuperior thermal and oxidation stability extends fluid life, reducing maintenance costs and downtimeResistance to oxidative and thermal breakdown guards against oil thickening, deposit and sludge formationHelps to keep the compressor, heat exchanger and expansion valves operating at their design efficiency and performance standardsExtends fluid life, even in the presence of impurities in the ammonia refrigerant, saving on downtime and change-out costs
