Frick Industrial Refrigeration, a Waynesboro, Pa.-based division of Johnson Controls, rebranded its global range of lubricants under the new Frick PureOil name.
The move comes in response to questions about the value of OEM-supplied oils as third-party oils from the ammonia refrigeration industry.
Frick PureOil was created to meet the specifications of particular compressors and mechanical refrigeration applications, while protecting customers from the risks of third-party oils.
Each Frick lubricant contains only the minimum proven additive chemistry for the service it is specified, boasts low volatility to reduce oil carryover and is resistant to high-temperature breakdown. Frick lubricants also feature low moisture content and a range of low pour points to discourage oil fouling in low-temperature evaporators.
