Solest is a range of polyol ester (POE) lubricants that form part of CPI Fluid Engineering. They are specially formulated for air conditioning and refrigeration compressor systems that use HFC refrigerants.
Since 1971, CPI Fluid Engineering has been a world leader in engineered fluid lubricants that are formulated for a number of industrial uses. The Solest range is recognised globally as a leading brand in the synthetic lubricant market. The wide range of lubricants has been formulated in a number of viscosities and package sizes.
The lubricants are suitable for HFC, HFO and HCFC refrigerants, along with reciprocating, rotary screw, scroll or centrifugal compressors. Solest lubricants have better viscosity, flash and fire points compared to conventional mineral oils. They are thermally stable, improve oil management, prevent corrosion and increase performance in air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Solest lubricants are also environmentally friendly, as they are biodegradable. The increased efficiency of refrigeration units with Solest lubricants reduce operation costs.
Solest 170 is a POE VG170 lubricant that maximises lubrication and provides superior bearing protection. It helps prevent wear on steel and aluminium surfaces and increases system life and performance. Solest 170 is used for air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, along with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) retrofitting operations. Solest 22 is a formulated ISQ VG22, non-hazardous lubricant with outstanding miscibility. It provides excellent thermal stability when used in HFC refrigerant systems.
