‘Refrigeration lubricant selection for industrial systems’ - .PDF file.

Many of today’s industrial refrigeration systems are compression-type systems (as opposed to absorption-type systems) where cooling is generated based on the evaporation of a refrigerant fluid such as Freon, ammonia or carbon dioxide. As illustrated in this article from Exxonmobil, the basic elements of these refrigeration units include the compressor, condenser, expansion valve and evaporator. The refrigerant fluid flows under pressure through the expansion valve to the evaporator, where it changes state from liquid to vapour in order to generate the cooling effect. The cold refrigerant vapour, once at low pressure, is then compressed, raising its temperature and pressure. It then flows through the condenser, where it cools down and liquefies. The cooled refrigerant then flows again, under high pressure, through the expansion valve for the next cycle.
