In contrast to paraffinic oils, naphthenic oils are distinguished by a molecular structure composed of “rings” of hydrocarbons, i.e., the hydrogen and carbon atoms are linked in a circular pattern. These oils do not contain wax and behave differently than paraffinic oils. Naphthenic oils have very good solvency with low pour points. They also have good color stability.
Naphthenic oils have lower flash points than corresponding paraffinic oils & Naphthenic oils have:
Naphthenic oils are generally reserved for applications with narrow temperature ranges and where a low pour point is required, e.g. refrigeration compressors,Industrial A/C compressor. It can be also used in manufacturing of transformer, Metal working fluid, rubber process oils, rubber parts, nylon tyre cord, LPG tube, Printing inks, high pressure compressor lubricants,speciality chemical and moulded and extruded good, Friction reduction lubricants.
