HFC Refrigeration Lubricants

Trusted Lubricant Options for HFC Systems

The Refrigerant Market Has Evolved

The phase-out of ozone-depleting CFC & HCFC refrigerants has been a positive step toward preserving our environment. However, it left users of the new generation of alternative refrigerants – specifically HFCs – wondering what lubricants would replace mineral oils for use in refrigeration compressor systems. From the first hint of the CFC/HCFC phase-out, CPI Fluid Engineering recognized the potential for synthetic lubricants. We immediately began the search for synthetic lubricant formulations that would meet the needs of emerging refrigerants.

Since then, CPI has been leading the way in offering lubricant technology solutions for use in the ever-changing refrigeration compressor industry.  We were the first major producer of polyol ester (POE), developed specifically for environmentally-safer refrigerants as replacements for CFCs & HCFCs.  The Emkarate® and Solest® brands are recognized globally as leaders in the synthetic lubricant market.
