Summit Varnasolv Rotary Screw Air Compressor Concentrated Flushing and Cleaning Lubricating Oil, 1qt
Summit Varnasolv is the premier rotary vane and rotary screw air compressor flushing lubricant. This is a great cleaning oil if your air compressor has been sitting for long periods of time, you purchased a used compressor and want to ensure it’s proper operation, or you are changing the type of oil that goes inside your compressor. Varnasolv is a fluid cleaning concentrate designed to dissolve sticky residues, varnish and carbon build-up during operation and keep them suspended in the oil.
The use of petroleum lubricants, mainly automatic transmission fluid (ATF), in rotary screw compressors, rotary vane compressors and other high temperature equipment, results in varnish and carbon formation. The varnish and carbon deposited throughout the equipment can cause many serious operational problems, resulting in excessively high maintenance costs. By using Varnasolb, you can restore your compressor to optimal efficiency by removing varnish, carbon, and debris buildup inside of your rotary screw air compressor.
Varnasolv can help reduce the problems caused by varnish and carbon. Varnasolv should be added to the existing lubricant to remove and suspend varnish while the equipment is running. Using Varnasolv eliminates the need for disassembling the equipment for cleaning. For maximum benefit, use Varnasolv before each lubricant change. Additional applications for Varnasolv include cleaning hydraulic systems, gearboxes, and high temperature chains. Varnasolv can also be used for cleaning Heat Transfer systems with temperatures up to 400°F.
The concentration ratio is 10:1. For example, add one gallon of Varnasolv concentrate to each ten gallons of oil in the unit. First drain enough oil to allow adding the Varnasolv. Continue to run the equipment for 20 to 40 hours, allowing the treated oil to disperse and suspend the varnish. To avoid depositing the suspended contaminants, drain the oil while warm and replace filters. Refill with new oil.
Varnasolv Food Grade is also available to remove varnish and sludge in equipment used in the food & beverage industry. Varnasolv FG is built for food grade applications and is NSF HX-1 registered – please contact us for pricing and availability for food grade applications.
