Oil Management for CO2
Oil Management for CO2

AACHEN, GERMANY, August 6, 2012 – When it comes to managing refrigeration systems, one of the main concerns is to keep the compressor lubricated. Meanwhile a high level of heat transfer and energy efficiency needs to be maintained by removing as much oil as possible from the refrigerant. This requires sophisticated oil management devices. Emerson Climate Technologies provides solutions and has upgraded now the pressure rating of its TraxOil OM4 oil management system for CO2 subcritical applications. The new maximum working pressure of all versions of the OM4 product line is 60 bar, an increase of more than 30%. This working pressure fulfills market requirements in respect to stand still pressure conditions especially in CO2 subcritical applications.

Oil controls of Emerson Climate Technologies monitor oil levels throughout the refrigeration systems. The complete line includes oil separators (OS series), acid test kids (AOK) and oil level management systems (OM3/OM4). Since November 2011 Emerson Climate Technologies is the sole worldwide manufacturer and provider of TraxOil.
