Refrigeration appliances use CFCs or HCFCs gases and low viscosity grade synthetic oils as lubricants in compressors / engines.
CFCs ( chlorofluorocarbons ) are hydrocarbons. They are no longer in use in new refrigeration equipment because of the danger for ozone layer. They are harmful due to the presence of chlorine gas CFCs commonly colorless , odorless or with a faint odor of ether , non-flammable , chemically stable without any toxic action ;
HCFCs (hydrochlorofluorocarbons ) compared to CFCs contain less chlorine and hydrogen and they are less harmful to ozone layer. These compounds, however, are more toxic than the CFC counterparts ;
LUBRICANTS : High performance synthetic oils are created to lubrificate compressors and refrigeration systems that use CFC or HCFC refrigerants because of high lubrification power and high thermal and oxidation stability . In many cases they are used in combination with CFCs and HCFCs.
