oil type needed for YCAS york compr
can someone point me at the correct oil for a york ycas 160EC chiller with screw compressors DX536lasa17
It is a R-22 machine
I prefer getting this back running and not have to wait for it to ship from york parts depot
I'm assuming its a poly ester such as emkarate 68??
any quick help would be appreciated

Reason: forgot to post refrigerant type
Yes its a POE, York L oil. Out of curiousity, what's w/ the chiller?
Sic Semper Tyrannis.
I need the specific viscosity
like emk 68 or?? artic etc
its for a change out that I want to replace the oil
Buy York L as stated by TXHVAC
"I'm from Texas, what country are you from?"
As stated earlier, it uses York "L" oil. And I would ONLY use York "L" oil.
It's a freekin rip off from York, but is it worth the risk? NO.
OK I gave up and ordered it from york in baltimore
(via slow boat from china)
thanx to y'all for the input anyway
WHAT an incredible pain in the butt!!!
Was it available in 5 gallon pails only? That's what they told me.
same thing to me
the final insult from york is that they charge like50-60 dollars for shipping & handling on smaller orders ( I can't wait to see the bill for 45# of oil!!! )
I had them ship a2 sensors and they charged 47.00 to ship it ups ground!!
What a rip
Though york has a local branch in suburban chicago you can't get chiller parts or oil from them. even though they ship the compressors from there!!!
anyway, enough venting on that subject!!!
adios to al and to all a good night.............
I have a cross reference with the viscosities and what not on york, trane, carrier, etc somewhere around here. I will look and let you know for future reference. Nine times out of ten the oil you buy from the manufacturer is just generic oil thats rebadged as the "special" oil you must have. It just has to meet the requirements of the spec the manuf is looking for.
penzoil 10w40 if its r-22 and a screw comp national ref 68 is same oil but cheaper!
there are other york branches that have parts houston for instance may save on some shipping
Here is a sheet for future reference.
Good stuff, I've never seen any one use anything other than the York oils on the screws/ centrifugals. I've used some alternate approved oils on Trane centrifugals-mobil whiterex 425, seems like I've seen some info on alternate oils for Yorks, now I know. Thanks
