Johnson Controls is responding to concerns about a rise in counterfeit oils being placed on the market by offering a global range of uniquely branded, authentic York lubricants with highest quality standards and specification.
Alpesh Trivedi, Product Manager, Johnson Controls IR & HVAC parts in Europe, said: “The problem is that low grade counterfeit oils, which are increasingly common in some markets, often have inferior ingredients and may contain contaminants, such as harmful additives, and generally do not adhere to the tight specification laid down by the original equipment manufacturer.
“This can result in chemical breakdown within a chiller, resulting in acid build up which can have devastating consequences for chiller performance and, in the most extreme cases, lead to total mechanical breakdown.”
Johnson Controls is introducing a global range of uniquely branded and authenticated lubricants, YORK PureOil, which carry a “seal of authenticity”, to reassure contractors and end users.
Although preventing corrosion and bacterial contamination in chilled water systems is vital in order to preserve operational integrity and efficiency, and avoid costly issues, few inhibitors offer comprehensive protection.
