Bio-SynXtra™ Food Grade Compressor Fluids are bio-synthetic compressor lubricants that contain ingredients, which are “Generally Regarded as Safe” (GRAS) for food possessing equipment. These Food Grade lubricants are formulated with biobased synthetic esters to improve lubricity and anti-wear performance for longer service life. Their multipurpose performance helps in reducing inventory and lowering cost. They provide superior lubricating qualities for most compressors, especially portable and stationary rotary compressors (screw and sliding vane) as well as in single-stage, two-stage, and multistage reciprocating compressors (water-cooled and air-cooled), centrifugal compressors, vacuum pumps and heat pumps. Their multipurpose performance helps in reducing inventory and lowering cost. In addition, Bio-SynXtra FG Compressor Fluids provide excellent anti-rust, anti-foam, and demulsibility properties. They are highly inhibited against moisture and pass both A and B Sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test.
While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 32, 46 and 68 grades are most commonly used for rotary compressors, while higher viscosity grades are preferred for reciprocating units (meets and exceeds DIN 51506 VDL requirements). Maximum oil change intervals can be obtained through proper maintenance and RLI’s oil analysis program. Under good operating conditions and oil analysis program, ISO Grades 32, 46, and 68 could extend service life up to 10,000 hours in rotary screw compressors.
Hydraulic & Gear: Bio-SynXtra™ FG Compressor Fluids are multi-application fluids and have a zinc-free additive system that meets Food Grade H1 requirements. They have shown exceptional anti-wear performance in ASTM D-4172 Four Ball Wear Test and they are recommended for use in vane, piston, and gear-type hydraulic pumps. The anti-wear performance meets and exceeds the requirements for Denison HF-O, Vickers M-2950-S (35VQ-25) and I-286-S (V-104C), Rexroth, US Steel 126, 136, and 127, and DIN 51524 Part 2&3. These products may be used in reduction units where original equipment manufacturers (OEM) require an R&O lubricant (i.e. AFNOR NFE 48-600 HL, DIN 51524 Part 1, and Denison HF-1 fluids). They also meet the requirements for ashless GL-1, GL-2, GL-3, DIN 51517 Part 3, AGMA Mild EP, and AGMA Non-EP gear oils for bearings, reduction units, and gear sets. (Use a Viscosity Sufficient for OEM Application).
Elastomer Compatibility: Bio-SynXtra™ FG Compressor Fluids are recommended for use with fluorocarbon (Viton), fluorosilicone, polysulfide, Teflon, Hydrogenated NBR (HNBR), and high nitrile Buna-N (>30%) elastomers.
Bio-SynXtra FG Compressor Fluids are not recommended for use where neoprene, polyacrylate, polyethylene, natural rubber, styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR, Buna S) or low Buna-N seals are used.
Multi-Applications: Hydraulic systems, gear drives, gearhead motors, drip oilers, air-oilers, air-tools, water pumps, bearings, machine oil, roller chains, cables, light circulating oil, etc., and general lubrication.
