Shrieve polyalkylene glycol lubricant technology offers a complete range of premium ZEROL® products for compressor lubrication. Our advanced RFL chemistry offers a speciality double end-capped (or ‘di-capped’) PAG that offers exceptional extreme pressure (EP) performance across both mobile and stationary applications.

Our ZEROL® RFL-X grades have been designed specifically as an OEM approved product choice for application with R134a refrigerant in MAC systems.

Our ZEROL® RFL-EP technology provides efficient lubrication for both existing stationary and  future mobile R744 compressors, with optimised levels of refrigerant miscibility being achieved as a result of the capping technology.

CO2 refrigerant (R744) is a leading natural refrigerant under adoption as a future primary non-ozone depleting technology. A high level of development in the area of CO2 based systems for commercial and industrial applications is in progress, most notably in the areas of CO2 commercial refrigeration and heat pumps.

The ZEROL® RFL-EP range are speciality double end-capped PAGs, engineered specifically to operate under the high pressure/temperature conditions of CO2 compression. They provide highly efficient lubrication for R744 compressors, with optimised levels of refrigerant miscibility to ensure wear protection even under the highest levels of CO2 dilution, where alternate lubricants may demonstrate loss in hydrodynamic and boundary lubrication.

The ZEROL® RFL-EP range is extensively OEM approved for commercial and industrial stationary CO2 refrigeration, and is available in viscosities ranging between ISO 46-150.

Features Benefits
  • Double end-capped PAG lubricant with optimised miscibility in CO2 
  • Excellent load bearing (EP) properties
  • Excellent thermal, chemical and hydrolytic stability
  • Reduced water absorbance tendency
  • System component compatibility
  • High Viscosity Index/Low pour point
  • Maximises oil return to the compressor for system efficiency, without loss of hydrodynamic/boundary lubrication properties
  • Lubrication properties are not compromised even under elevated pressure and temperature conditions
  • Prolongs stable operating conditions, reduces downtime and maintenance costs
  • Minimised water ingress compared to alternate R744 technologies
  • Compatible with all metallic and elastomeric components commonly employed for maximised system stability and extended life
  • Ensures high system efficiency and no compromise in lubrication at temperature extremes

ZEROL® RFL-X lubricants are formulated for compressors that require a superior, high-performance lubricant with viscosities ranging between ISO 46-150.

They are fully compliant with the technical requirements for MAC double end-capped PAG lubricants specified by leading global compressor manufacturers and carry a number of OEM approvals.

Features Benefits
  • Double end-capped PAG lubricant with optimised miscibility in R134a
