For the lowdown on PVE.... http://www.pag-idemitsu-usa.com/pve_benefits.htm
I know POE is based on alcohol and acid, which make it the good cleaning agent that it is.
I thought when it broke down, it created organic salts.
and that if absorbed enough water, it could separate and revert back to being alcohol and acid in separate components.
If I'm remembering correctly.
but when cared for correctly POE is a good lubricant.
Looks like Slick-50 for the HVACR world.... does it work?

Are there any test cases where the PVE has been run in a Rack?
Where would I find it and what is the general cost per gallon vs/ POE?
I like how it says it makes it possible to eliminate the filter drier.
will it make my hair and d*%& grow too?
I saw that.
Put it in your Service Truck and you can eliminate the Oil filter, and Muffler!
Put it in your lawnmower, It cuts the grass for you!
The part that really bothered me was the "similar characteristics to PAG oil...." was there not some problems with that stuff?
I just saw the PVE is sold in 12oz cans. I am NOT pumping oil in a Rack Via 12 oz cans. 4 pumps, new can. 4 pumps, new can. 4 pumps, new can. Can you imagine doing a full oil change of 7-15 Gallons? Multiple times? The store would be screaming at you.....
I'm not ready to cry 'snake oil' just yet. Doug, have you been using this stuff, getting good results? Anyone else using this stuff?
It is such a superior lubricant that the Rack will only require (1) 12oz can.
The PVE will permanently bond itself to all metal to metal surfaces.
In many cases, you can even remove the oil separator.
NuCalgon is now offering PVE oil:
Check out the list of compressor manufacturers which approve it. I think it's something to keep an eye on in the future.
I do not doubt it may be something to keep an eye on.
I wonder what the viscosity equivalents are compared to MO or POE?
I'm no chemist...but the oils we are familiar with have viscosity grades of ISO 32 and ISO68, which for mineral oil would correspond to 3GS and 4GS. AB, POE and PVE oils are rated similarly.
I think if you put west african stud buzzard manure in your hair and hang a 30# jug of 410a (you know...the pretty pink can :whistle:) off yer 'Ernie' ....it should make them both grow....
