The Energy that Keeps Namibia Moving



Sasol Ammonia Compressor Oil 68 is a very highly refined mineral oil from which all free wax, dirt, sediment and other deleterious impurities are removed.

This a product formulated to outperform conventional mineral and naphthenic refrigerant oils


This oil is intended for lubrication of industrial compressor refrigerant units and also especially those using ammonia as the refrigerant as well as units operating very low and high operating temperatures and thermal loads.

Features and Benefits

Sasol Ammonia Compressor Oil 68:

  • Significantly less volatile
  • results in less carryover to the refrigeration system
  • The product has superior thermal and oxidative stability and this prevents oil thickening and deposit formation.
  • High viscosity index compared to other oils
