Perfecting Compressor Refrigerant-Oil Balance

Boston - Too much lubricant and the compressor does not cool properly; but too much refrigerant and the compressor's life is shortened by bearing wear, according to a senior engineer at a major North American compressor manufacturer. We use Cambridge viscometers to help find the right balance for each of our products. The ability to mount these viscometers directly in our test compressors cannot...
