Compressing a gas increases pressure and temperature, which creates an aggressive environment for the lubricant. Diesters, polyol esters and aromatic esters are preferred in compressor lubricants because they have excellent thermal stability, low varnish and low evaporation.

Food Processing

Zschimmer & Schwarz offers many synthetic esters that are registered HX-1 for incidental food contact applications. These products are the first choice for any lubricant used in a food processing plant because they are not considered a chemical hazard when used in accordance with appropriate food hygiene regulations.

Synthetic esters have been used in synthetic two- and four- stroke engine oils since the beginning. Modern combustion engines operate at higher temperature with less fluid and longer change intervals. Synthetic esters give the thermal stability and deposit control necessary to meet the challenge.

Synthetic esters are used in metalworking fluids because they give outstanding performance, worker safety and environmental benefits. The polar ester group gives excellent boundary lubrication which means higher cutting efficiency, better surface finish and longer tool life. They are safe and non-irritating for workers, and all Lexolube metalworking esters have a VOC below 50 g/L.
