Fuchs Schmierstoffe: development of a lubricant for high temperature heat pumps with refrigerant OpteonMZ in the DryFiciency project

Fuchs Schmierstoffe develops unique synthetic lubricant for high temperature heat pumps which is chemically stable when used withOpteonMZ (HFO-1336mzz-Z), a novel, non-flammable and non-toxic new refrigerant from Chemours that is not subject to the F-gas regulation. The lubricant is used for two compressor technologies, an adapted screw compressor by Bitzer and a new piston compressor technology by Viking Heat Engines.

Industries to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels with unique compressor technologies

Compressors from Viking Heat Engines and Bitzer – specially engineered to reach up to 160 °C – have been delivered to an experienced Austrian heat pump manufacturer and work is underway to build the first industrial, high-temperature heat pump systems to be installed at DryFiciency’s demo partner sites.
