Bock introduces dedicated compressor oils

GERMANY: Bock GmbH has launched a range of oils specifically formulated for use with mobile and stationary Bock compressors in all applications using “natural” and synthetic refrigerants. 

The new BOCKlub compressor oil series are said to have been formulated to permanently guarantee the economic efficiency and performance of its compressors. Bock considers that specifically formulated oils that are regularly tested and validated for new requirements and applications are important to achieving this.

Tailor-made for a wide range of applications – from low temperature to heat pump – the BOCKlub compressor oil series are said to guarantee a high level of wear protection and an increase in the efficiency and service life of the compressor. 

Bock also claims excellent viscosity and temperature behaviour, high chemical and thermal stability and an easy upgrade from previously used oils.
