Customer
Requirements
A large Mexican coil manufacturer wanted better performance than they were experiencing with their current lube. They wanted better brazing compatibility and low smoke. This customer also needed a lube that was compatible with the latest refrigerants being used in today’s industry.
Summary
This customer tested ArrowHVAC 20475 for over 4 months, including independent laboratory testing to measure against their strict approval criteria. The product passed and was subsequently approved. During the testing period ArrowHVAC 20475 was found to enhance the brazing process and gave off very little smoke. These qualities were formulated into the product at Chem Arrow’s laboratory in Irwindale, CA and were completed in such a manner that the product cost is highly competitive.

All of the above products have been independent laboratory tested for refrigerant compatibility, corrosion protection and hydrolytic stability. Documentation is available upon request.
