What is ND 8 refrigerant oil?

What is ND 8 refrigerant oil?

pag 46 oil
Answer: Nd 8 is a pag 46 oil. If you are using it in an R134a system, it should be fine.

What refrigerant uses alkylbenzene oil?

Alkylbenzene (AB) – a synthetic oil suitable for refrigeration systems using CFC or HCFC refrigerants. It is compatible with mineral oil and compared to mineral oil, it has improved refrigerant miscibility with R-22 at low-temperature conditions.

Can I use PAG 46 instead of pag100?

➔ PAG oils are highly miscible with R134a (PAG oils 46 YF and 100 YF also with R1234yf) and are suitable for lubricating the air conditioning systems of most passenger and commercial vehicles.

What type of oil is used with R1234yf?

PAG oil YF
PAG oil YF is suitable for both R1234yf and R134a refrigerants. PAG SP-A2 oil for refrigerants R1234yf and R134a For use in electric air conditioning compressors, such as those manufactured by SANDEN and VISTEON (Hanon).

Is ND-oil 8 synthetic?

ND-oil 8 and ND-oil 12 are premium quality compressor oils, produced by Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd. As a well-established specialist in mineral and synthetic oil based lubricants, Idemitsu ranks as the world’s leading manufacturer of PAG oils for vehicle air conditioning systems.

Can you mix refrigerant oils?

Mixing oils While mixing A/C Compressor oils is usually not recommended, as it can lead to A/C Compressor damage and failure, the new ND-oil 12 can be used with both R1234yf and the old R134a type refrigerants.

Which oil is used with R134a refrigerant?

Polyol Ester Oil
So, along with R134a came a new oil: Polyalkylene Glycol—or PAG oil. Note that there is another kind of oil called Polyol Ester Oil (POE). The advantage of ester oil is that it works with both R12 as well as R134a, so you can fill the system with it and then use either refrigerant.

Does refrigerant contain oil?

Yes there is oil in the system to keep the compressor lubricated. It is carried throughout the system in the refrigerant. It is usually added in when the system is charged.

What happens if I use the wrong PAG oil?

Using the wrong oil may allow current to short circuit back through the A/C compressor, creating a shock hazard. Mineral oil should only be used in older R-12 A/C compressors because R-12 will not mix with R-134 refrigerant. This can lead to poor lubrication and premature compressor failure.

Can you mix different PAG oils?

Summary: PAG Oil is used on R-134a systems from about 1995-2015. Check your manufacturer’s recommendation for proper type of oil as well as specific viscosity. Because mineral oil and PAG oil cannot be mixed, another A/C compressor oil was needed to bridge the gap for system conversions.
