The compressor is the heart of the HVAC system. Trane compressors have been designed to provide the highest reliability and efficiency. They are manufactured to very precise tolerances. To optimize compressor life, oil management is key.
Oil function is not only lubrication. Many other parameters should be controlled. Viscosity is critical to make sure the oil film will resist high temperatures and oil dilution due to the presence of refrigerant. Anti-wear additives will help prevent compressor failure. Oil chemistry is critical in managing refrigeration applications and in ensuring proper circulation and oil return to the compressor.
Trane oils fully integrate all these parameters and have been specifically designed and manufactured to protect Trane compressors. They are an essential part of their successful operation.
