REFLO™ Synthetic

Provides exceptional performance at extreme low temperatures

Petro-Canada Lubricants REFLO Synthetic 68A is a full synthetic polyalphaolefin/alkyl benzene based ammonia refrigeration compressor fluid used in industrial refrigeration systems. REFLO Synthetic 68A is formulated to outperform solvent refined paraffinic and naphthenic refrigerant oils by extending service life and thereby helping to significantly reduce operating costs. REFLO Synthetic 68A is specifically formulated to outperform straight polyalphaolefin refrigeration compressor fluids by offering better seal performance, while maintaining excellent foam control and deposit formations. The result is a refrigeration compressor fluid that offers reliable, long-term performance with the potential for significant operational cost savings as part of a proper maintenance system.

  • Extreme low temperature performance
  • Lower oil volatility reduces fluid consumption and maintenance costs
  • Lower solubility in ammonia improves system efficiency and performance
  • Superior thermal and oxidation stability extends fluid life, which helps to reduce maintenance costs and downtime
  • High viscosity index ensures proper lubrication and protection from wear and viscosity change over a wide range of operating temperatures
  • High flash point ensures safe operation at elevated temperatures
  • Excellent seal, paint and plastic compatibility

  • REFLO Synthetic 68A is formulated to lubricate ammonia refrigeration compressors used in large commercial operations such as cold stores, marine systems and food processing plants; specifically blast freezers that have very low evaporator temperatures.
  • REFLO Synthetic 68A is also used in manufacturing industries that require very low temperature control, such as pharmaceuticals and microelectronics. REFLO Synthetic 68A can be used in ammonia refrigeration systems where evaporator temperatures are greater than -51°C (-60°F).*

*These are recommended minimum evaporator temperatures based on our products’ typical pour point. It is important to refer to your operating manual and follow suggested OEM instructions. It is not recommended to operate at evaporator temperatures cooler than the pour point of the compressor oil as waxing / flocking may occur.
