NanoMaterials, the nanotechnology lubricants company, has once again proven the efficacy of its NanoLub® nano-additives in compressors. Tests conducted by a multi-national chemical manufacturer showed that when NanoLub® surface reconditioning lubricant additives were added to napthenic oil, both power consumption and discharge line temperatures were reduced by up to 6% . NanoMaterials’ NanoLub® series is the first successful commercial implementation of inorganic, multi-layered fullerene-shaped nanoparticles in extreme pressure lubricants.
Tests were conducted to compare the power consumption and discharge line temperatures of compressor types H57 and H61 using napthenic oil, with and without the addition of NanoLub® additive. Two compressors were connected to two calorimeters in order to measure the power consumption of the compressors. For the H61 compressor model, results showed that power was reduced by 2%, and that the discharge line temperature was reduced by 1.6% when NanoLub® was added to the naphthenic base oil. For the H57 compressor model, results showed that power was reduced by 6%, and that the discharge line temperature was reduced by 3% when NanoLub® was added to the naphthenic base oil.
“This is another example of how our additives demonstrate superior performance across applications, this time in the compressor industry,” said
NanoMaterials’ NanoLub® range is based on patented and award-winning technology developed at
• Enhanced energy and fuel efficiency
• Reduced operating temperature
• Significant friction reduction
• Reduced wear of contacting surfaces
• Reconditioning of existing wear damage
• Prolongs maintenance intervals
• Extends lubricant life
These translate to significant cost and performance benefits such as lower energy consumption, extended effective operation of mechanisms, and extended machinery life.
