HDAX® NG Screw Compressor Oils 150 is formulated for use in natural gas screw compressors running on dry natural gas, or natural gas containing water or sour gases.
HDAX NG Screw Compressor Oils deliver value through:
Cost effectiveness — Provide excellent performance at a significantly lower cost than polyglycol synthetics.
Wide range of operating temperatures — Ability to start compressors in colder environments, and ability to provide ample oil film thickness at operating temperatures.
Corrosion protection — Contain rust and corrosion inhibitors to help protect equipment against water and corrosive effects of sour gases.
HDAX NG Screw Compressor Oils are formulated to:
meet the lubrication demands of screw compressors in naturalgas service.
protect lubricated parts against the corrosive effects of water and sour gas.
HDAX NG Screw Compressor Oils should not be used in ammonia or air compressors services.
Polyglycol synthetics are frequently recommended for natural gas screw compressors because they are believed to be less susceptible to dilution by natural gas; however, their cost is quite high. HDAX NG Screw Compressor Oils are formulated to provide effective lubrication of natural gas screw compressors, but with a hydroprocessed mineral oil lubricant.
HDAX NG Screw Compressor Oil 150 is recommended
when startup temperatures are moderate to high
where dilution by liquid hydrocarbons is significant
