Refrigeration compressor fluids formulated for commercial refrigeration systems.

Product Description


Petro-Canada’s REFLO™ SYNTHETIC 68A is a full synthetic polyalphaolefin/alkyl benzene based ammonia refrigeration compressor fluid used in industrial refrigeration systems.

Petro-Canada’s REFLO™A is an ammonia refrigeration compressor fluid used in industrial refrigeration systems.


REFLO A is formulated to outperform solvent refined paraffinic and naphthenic refrigerant oils by helping to extend service life thereby helping to reduce operating costs. REFLO A’s performance results from more than 25 years formulating experience. Using the HT purity process, Petro-Canada produces 99.9% pure base oils – among the purest in the world.


Virtually free of impurities that can hinder fluid performance; these crystal clear base oils are fortified with specialty selected additives. The result is a refrigeration compressor fluid that offers reliable, long-term performance with the potential for significant operational cost savings.

Food Processing

Industrial Refridgeration / Cold Storage

REFLO 68A is formulated to lubricate ammonia refrigeration compressors used in large commercial operations such as cold stores, food processing plants, marine systems and ice arenas. REFLO A is also used in manufacturing industries that require low temperature control, such as pharmaceuticals and microelectronics. REFL0 A can be used in ammonia refrigeration systems where evaporator temperatures are greater than -39°C (-38°F) * Although

REFLO A is compatible with most paraffinic mineral oils, the full benefits of REFLO A will not be realized without a complete fluid change-out. Most OEM's use Neoprene® (Polychloroprene), HSN (Highly Saturated Nitrile) or BUNA N (Nitrile) seals, and REFLO A fluids are fully compatible with these types of materials.

However, when a compressor is converted from one oil formulation or type to another, there is always a risk of seal swell or shrinkage. Unlike naphthenic fluids or fluids derived from aromatic chemicals such as alkyl benzenes, REFLO A fluids cause little or no seal swell and hence should not be considered compatible for top-up with these fluids. Although tightening flanges can sometimes correct minor leaks, we advise that new seals should be retrofitted during the oil conversion. Follow the OEM's seal recommendation for hydrotreated paraffinic oil.
