First of all, what is Zerol Ice? Zerol Ice is a lubricant that was developed by Shrieve Products Company, the manufacturer of Zerol alkylbenzene refrigeration oil. Though it is a complete lubricant it is designed to be mixed with existing refrigeration system oil at a residual 5-10%. The addition of Zerol Ice to existing refrigeration oil improves lubricity and improves existing oils thermal properties.
So what you say? The improved lubricity with mineral, alkylbenzene and POE oils means the compressor has to do less work! Less work will lower amp draw of the compressor reducing energy usage and possibly improving the compressor service life. This improved lubricity can also quiet noisy compressors while improving bearing wear.
Improved thermal properties can improve oil return while also improving heat transfer in both the condenser and evaporators. Reduced energy consumption along with improved heat transfer has shown the ability to lower energy consumption on average by 11%!
Add 1 can of A/C Renew (Zerol Ice) for up to a 5 ton A/C system. Use multiple cans for larger systems. Pressurized cans of A/C Renew are available for R22 systems, use the 4 fluid once non-pressurized can with a dye injector for an R410 system or other refrigerants.
A/C Renew is a great energy saving and sound quieting add-on item that can be sold during maintenance and service calls. The ICM515 surge protector, ICM805 RapidStart, and A/C Renew make a great system improving add-on package.
