PROGILINE® LPG GAS COMPRESSOR LUBRICANTS

Shrieve’s PROGILINE® LPG Water Soluble (WS) and Water Insoluble (WI) range of lubricants are high-performance synthetic lubricants based upon polyalkylene glycol technology and have been developed for hydrocarbon and chemical gas processing compressors.

Unlike mineral oils, PROGILINE® LPG lubricants are not easily absorbed into the gas stream and therefore lubricant dilution is minimised.

High resistance to gas dilution of the lubricant ensures proper lubricant viscosity is maintained, thereby ensuring adequate oil film thickness and efficient compressor lubrication.

PAG based synthetic gas compressor lubricants offer significant advantages over their mineral oil counterparts, especially if the compressor is handling ‘wet’ hydrocarbon gas streams.

PROGILINE LPG-WS range gas compressor lubricants are designed for enclosed pattern hydrocarbon and chemical gas compressors where the crankcase and bearings operate in a gas-filled environment. PROGILINE LPG-WS synthetic lubricants are available in a wide viscosity range and offer the following advantages:

  • Reduced gas solubility leading to extended lubricant life, improved compressor efficiency, reduced foaming and improved wear protection
  • Wide range of gas compatibility including vinyl chloride and butadiene
  • Lowers inventory costs by avoiding change to mineral oil for butadiene, which could lead to mis-application.

These lubricants should NOT be mixed with mineral oils and a complete drain, flush and refill is required prior to use. Please contact your regional Shrieve office for detailed application and compatibility recommendations.

The PROGILINE LPG-WI series are are available in four viscosity grades - VG 68, 100, 150 and 220. They are particularly suitable for use with heavy gases (density > 1.5 kg/m3). In addition to premium PAG base oil, PROGILINE LPG-WI are additised to:

  • Ensure long service life
  • Excellent wear protection
  • Corrosion resistance (particularly in consideration of hydrogen sulphide gas content)
  • High thermal and oxidation resistance.

These high-performance lubricants are designed for use in screw, piston and rotary vane compressors handling a variety of chemical and hydrocarbon gases. They should NOT be mixed with mineral oils and a complete drain, flush and refill is required prior to use. Please contact your regional Shrieve office for detailed application and compatibility recommendations.
