Petro-Canada SPX 7000

Compressor oil

Basic Identifiers

ID Type BO VG
8720 Compressor oil PAG 150

Description

SPX 5000, 7000 and 7068 are unique products specifically formulated for lubricating and cooling reciprocating and rotary screw compressors handling hydrocarbon gases, such as propane and natural gas. Unlike mineral oils, these polyglycol synthetic lubricants have a much lower gas solubility, which reduces dilution and viscosity change and greatly improves separation of the lubricant from the process gas. These PAG based fluids are incompatible with all other oils both mineral and synthetic based. SPX 5000 is recommended for use in: * Compression of sweet hydrocarbon gas mixtures SPX 7000 and 7068 are recommended for use in: * Propane in refrigeration systems * Compression of sour hydrocarbon gas mixtures * Sour natural gas and acid gas compression * Gas re-injection service NGS Synthetic Blend Compressor Fluids (page 112) are recommended for: * Compression of light hydrocarbon gases (methane, ethane) where expected dilutions is <10% wt. * Lubrication and cooling in process and gas rotary screw compressors * Natural gas field booster service

ASTM D341 Viscosity Calculator

You may calculate the viscosity of the oil at various temperatures based on ASTM D341. This uses the two sets of calibration data that we already have in order to calculate the viscosity at any temperature. You may input multiple temperatures at once, seperated by comma.
