What You Should Know About Compressor Lubrication In The Food and Pharmaceutical Industry

 

Reciprocating compressors are the most common type you could find on shops and Industries. Their safe and reliable operation requires they are correctly lubricated with suitable products that are able to protect from wear all of the main components including, but not limited to: cylinders, pistons, plain bearings holding the crankshaft, etc.. Many reciprocating compressors use one lubrication system to address all their needs. On this type of air compressors, lubricants are supposed to reduce friction in between moving parts avoiding wear. The oil is supposed to lubricate the pistons inside the cylinders and also the bearings of the crankshaft that moves the pistons. The oil is also supposed to refrigerate pistons and cylinders of this type of machinery by driving the heat off these surfaces and into the water cooling systems to dissipate it. Finally the lubricant is supposed to prevent corrosion. This is specially challenging given that compressors naturally generate hear and high humidity conditions which act as corrosion catalysts. Sealing is also a function that is required for an adequate lubricant. Inside the cylinders of a reciprocating compressor high pressure is generated. The lubricant must produce a film that is resilient enough to prevent air from escaping in between the piston rings and the cylinders' walls.

Same as with reciprocating compressors, oils used for rotary compressors, must lubricate, refrigerate, protect and seal. Usually viscosity grades from ISO VG 32 and up to ISO VG 100 with a high viscosity index are specified in this type of equipment. Vane type or screw compressors, which are subcategories of rotary compressors, normally demand higher viscosity lubricants to maintain an adecuate hydrodynamic film and good sealing on the vanes' edges and the cylinder's wall.

Rotor Bearings are lubricated by the same oil with an independant feeding system. Which ever lubrication system is used, these types of compressors require an oil separator to remove the lubriciant from the compressed air and return it to the lubrication system.

 

 

About CAMCO® FMO XL-46 Series Light Duty Compressor Oils For The Food Processing Industry

Compressor

CAMCO® FMO XL-46 is a unique formulation derived from polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic hydrocarbon lubricant and other advanced synthetic fluids and proprietary additives for improved lubrication at high and low temperatures, reduced volatility, and compatability with mineral oils. An advanced additive system provides superior equipment life and longer drain intervals than previously achievable with PAO's or mineral oils.
Formulation meets 21 CFR 178.3570 requirements for lubricants with the possibility of incidental food contact. All components meet NSF H-1 requirements.
The FMO XL-46 food grade air compressor oil has been field tested and has shown that it can last up to 2 times longer than other synthetic PAO food grade oils on the market.

Most commonly used for compressor, light duty Hydraulic fluid, bearing and circulating systems (coolant and heat transfer) applications. Formulated to extend life for applications requiring excellent oxidative, rust and corrosion resistance, low foaming and good water separation characteristics

About CAMCO® 717 HT Series Ammonia Compatible Refrigeration Oils

Camco Product 717


The CAMCO® 717-HT is a 2 Stage Severly Hydrotreated mineral oil, which takes on the characteristics of Synthetic oil. The 717-HT is extremely refined to a 99.9% pure base oil. This process removes all impurities and all wax, so there is no carbon forming ability. CAMCO® 717-HT has an additive package to enhance performance, while protecting the equipment from corrosion, oxidation and anti-foam. This gives you the highest quality ammonia oil to date.
CAMCO® 717 Series has a unique closed molecular structure making it extremely thermal and oxidatively stable, extending the drain interval several thousand hours over conventional ammonia refrigeration lubricants. It has lubricity twice that of conventional refrigeration oils for reciprocating, screw and rotary vane compressors, resulting in the following:



Applications

• Rotary Screw
• Rotary Vane
• Reciprocating or Piston

Other CAMCO® Ammonia Oils

• CAMCO® 717-SC
• CAMCO® 717-LT Low Temp
• CAMCO® 717-LTSC Low Temp
w/ Seal Conditioner



The Advantages to the CAMCO® 717 Series

• Designed specifically for ammonia applications
• Very low volatility and solubility with ammonia
• 50% less oil carry over than conventional oils
