are incompatible with strong oxidising agents, peroxides, chlorine and concentrated nitric acid.

Oil Type
       
       
  
All BNF Hydrocarbon refrigerants possess full chemical compatibility with all common refrigeration lubricants.
       
       
       
        
The only oils
that ALL refrigerants are incompatible with is silicone and silicate based lubricants.
       
       
       
        
ALL our Hydrocarbon Refrigerants are
soluble with all refrigeration oils. Under high pressure and low temperature
       
       
       
        
conditions increased soluability can occur with certain oil types and this
should be considered when making a        
       
       
        
selection [ Mineral (M), Alkyl benzene (AB) Semi-synthetic (AB/M), Polyolester (POE),
Poly alkyl glycol (PAG),
