LUBRICANT INNOVATION FOR CO2 COMPRESSORS

Industrial and commercial facilities using carbon dioxide (CO2 , R-744) are experiencing strong growth in Europe. The main benefits of using this “natural” fluid are the strong better cooling capacity for relatively low installed compressor power, an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of 0, and a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1. The low ODP and GWP values can make this an “ideal” fluid for many users. However, R-744 presents technological challenges in its implementation and maintenance and cannot be used for all applications. Let us review this technology with Jean-Yves Clairé, a Lubrication Engineer at ExxonMobil.
