Anglomoil develops biodegradable long life rotary screw air compressor lubricants

Supplier News

Anglo Design announces the launch of a new environment-friendly rapidly biodegradable long life lubricant specifically developed for rotary screw air compressors.

Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 offers one of the highest levels of biodegradability (BIO) with almost no traces present in disposed condensate within 28 days. PAG in the name refers to the unique fully synthetic polyalkylene glycol and polyol ester based formulation, which improves compressor performance over much longer operating periods. It allows service intervals to be extended to 8000 hours, resulting in significant cost savings for operators. CL refers to compressor lubricant and 46 is its ISO viscosity rating (SAE rating = 10W20). 

Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 joins the comprehensive range of compressor lubricants from the brand, which include the internationally rated food grade oil, Anglomoil SFG with its synthetic hydrocarbon PAOs, Anglomoil Rotary Synthetic and mineral grade Anglomoil Compressor S/R and Anglomoil Compressor H/R.

Worldwide tests have shown that, unlike petroleum based fluids, traces of Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 that end up in compressor condensate in waste water sewage systems are broken down and transformed into carbon dioxide, nitrogen, mineral salts and water, which are not harmful to nature. This green feature of the new compressor lubricant eliminates the need to install oil/water separators on equipment since the lubricating fluid can be removed along with the water.

Apart from the environmental advantages, Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 delivers a host of other benefits to operators of rotary screw air compressors including improved reliability, performance, equipment lifespan and safety as well as reduced servicing costs.

Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 compressor lubricants are resistant to sludging (unlike petroleum based products); have a high viscosity index of 173; offer excellent seal compatibility; are non-foaming; offer corrosion protection; have an extremely high flash point of 271°C and ignition point of 388°C, enhancing operating safety; provide peak lubricating performance at operating temperatures up to 200°C; are thermally conductive, keeping compressors running cooler; have high oxidative stability; ensure reduced operating costs; and offer extended engine life. 

Anglomoil BIOPAG CL 46 is available from Anglomoil, the 100% Australian owned and operated company recognised throughout the lubricant industry since 1975 as a manufacturer of exceptionally high quality, high performance products. Anglomoil is a respected name in the Australasian compressor industry.
