Investigation into low viscosity refrigeration oil for refrigerators.

Number: pap. n. 1014

Author(s) : SHONO Y., NARA F., OKIDO T., et al.

Summary

As with automotive lubricants, the trend in refrigeration oils for refrigerators is toward lower viscosities, in pursuit of higher energy efficiency. A viscosity grade (VG) of 32 was once common for refrigeration oils. Recently, however, we have developed an extremely low viscosity refrigeration oil (VG3) for refrigerators that use R600a. In this presentation, we will discuss the technical difficulties (e.g. anti-wear properties) that are caused by lowering the viscosity of refrigeration oils and how to solve them.
