Acid-Away for POE

  • Compatible with all common compressor materials of construction, internal system components, mineral oil and alkylbenzene refrigeration oils.
  • Removes residual acid normally left behind in the system after a compressor burnout occurs which can cause a subsequent compressor burnout of the new compressor
  • Suitable for preventative maintenance use to help avoid compressor burnouts resulting from the buildup of corrosive acids inside refrigeration systems
  • Eliminates the need for flushing systems with solvents or other similar products in an attempt to remove residual acids
  • Eliminates costly multiple oil changes performed to dilute the acid content of the refrigeration oil
  • Minimizes costly service call backs due to repeat compressor failures caused by acid
  • Can be used to treat recovery, recycling and reclaiming units in order to protect them from attack caused by acid fouled refrigerants and oils

Acid-Away® POE provides a unique approach to help prevent compressor burnouts by effectively removing the acid buildup that occurs in Polyol Ester refrigeration oils used in air conditioning and refrigeration systems.

It is a safe and easy to use treatment for both hermetic and semi-hermetic compressors of virtually any size that operates with Polyol Ester lubricants.

Acid Away for POE eliminates the need for flushing systems with solvents to remove residual acids. Acid Away® for POE has been tested in accordance with ANSI/ASHRAE Standards 86-1983 and 97-1989, and various ASTM standards. U.S. Patent No. 5,503,757.

Instructions
