The oil, even in small quantities, circulates throughout the refrigeration circuit.
The main functions of the oil in a refrigeration cycle are:
high temperatures oxidation and humidity can affect its molecular structure or composition, circumstances that include variables in the production system. The possible control of these alterations affects the machinery. It is recommended to carry out periodic analyzes of the oil to evaluate its chemical and physical composition, anticipating that the contaminants – If they exist – harm the useful life and the productive capacity. The search for efficiency and optimization of factories and ships involves the control of oils in order to avoid incidents and wear situations in the cooling elements.
