ArtiKool uses the Latest Technology when it comes to improving the performance of cooling systems.

ArtiKool's unique Synthetic Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive (PROA) formula is essential in many applications, including: consumer, commercial, industrial, federal sector refrigeration and chillers; air-conditioning systems and heat pumps. The ArtiKool Synthetic PROA additive in a system increases lubricity of refrigerant oils by significantly enhancing compressor efficiency and significantly improving heat transfer in the evaporator and condensing coils.

ArtiKool Synthetic PROA additive is blended, appropriately to the equipment design, into the refrigerant oil reservoir or refrigerant flow. The Synthetic PROA is carried with the primary lubricant moving throughout the system. We refer to the additive as being polarized since there is covalent molecular bonding that takes place between the negatively charged Artikool molecules and the positive charge of the metal surfaces.

Each ArtiKool negatively charged molecule attaches to the metal surfaces inside the system; these surfaces are thus conditioned, displacing dirt, carbon deposits (coking) and lubrication oil build-up. Eventually a thin layer one molecule thick is formed of ArtiKool in the system. This single layer in effect makes a smoother surface for the refrigerant to travel thus providing optimum conditions for efficient thermal conductivity within the heat exchanger system or refrigeration/air conditioning equipment. In addition, ArtiKool Synthetic provides greatly enhanced lubrication to all moving parts of refrigeration equipment under extreme pressure making ArtiKool one of the best refrigeration treatments available today.

ArtiKool Synthetic PROA has no equal with that will help older units run almost like new and new units keep running like new for years to come. ArtiKool Product does not use Chlorine in its makeup . ArtiKool Synthetic PROA blends can be used for automobiles air conditioning systems as well all air conditioning and refrigeration systems including Ammonia systems.

How ArtiKool Works: How can a Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive Make Your Refrigeration System More Efficient?

In a perfect world, refrigeration systems would be 100% efficient. Since refrigeration is basically a system of heat exchange, heat exchange is an extremely important part of the equipment's efficiency.

In other words, in a perfect world, all of the heat would be transferred without any losses at all. The cold liquid refrigerant in the evaporator would absorb heat directly across any barriers. At the same time, all this absorbed heat carried by the refrigerant through outdoor coil would be transferred to outside air.

Since we do not live in a perfect world, we will look at factors involved in losing efficiency when cooling. The first factor influencing efficiency is the flow of refrigerant through the piping. When liquids or gases flow in pipes, they produce a condition called Boundary Layer Effect.

Boundary layers appear on the surface of bodies in viscous flow in the cooling coils because the fluid seems to "stick" to the surface. Right at the surface the flow has zero relative speed and this fluid transfers lack of momentum to adjacent layers through the action of viscosity. Thus a thin layer of fluid with lower velocity than the outer flow develops. The requirement that the flow at the surface has no relative motion is the "no slip condition."

The zero slip condition at the surface arises from the roughness of the surface on a molecular scale. Fluid molecules hitting the surface impart a net momentum to the surface and the mean velocity of molecules hitting the surface is about the same as the surface velocity. Even when the surface is extremely smooth, electrostatic forces exist between the surface and the air molecules, introducing the shear stress at the surface.This results in the liquids or gases closes to the boundary being either warmer or cooler than in the centre of the piping.

TThis "boundary layer serves as a sort of "insulator" to the liquids or gases closest to the centre of the pipe Adding a genuine Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive to your system will increase efficiency to a point even better than
The polarized molecules of the additive have a positive "charge". This causes them to be attracted, magnetically, to the metal parts within your system, most conspicuously seen in your piping and heat exchangers.

The polarized particle serves two purposes:

  1. By reducing friction losses in the piping.
  2. It helps transfer heat because it has an extremely high heat-exchange co efficiency. This makes your system more efficient, producing colder temperatures...reducing the amount of time your system needs to "work".

Oil Carryover

Another factor affecting efficiency is "oil carryover". Oil carryover is not a desirable condition, but it is practically unavoidable. Your compressor requires oil to accomplish two tasks. First, the oil provides lubrication to moving parts within your compressor system. Secondly, it serves as a seal, necessary in a closed system like air conditioning and refrigeration. Even screw compressors, which are the best performers in terms of oil carryover, will produce this phenomena. This carryover results in oil being deposited onto the walls of your piping, where it acts as an insulator. This reduces the heat exchanging properties of your system.

A properly formulated Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive does not treat the oil, it treats the METAL. First, it displaces the oil adhering to the walls of your piping. Then, it remains in place providing a barrier which stops oil from adhering after treatment.

Resulting Combination

As you can see, the combination of the two conditions (boundary layer effect and oil carryover) constitute a "one-two punch" which adversely affects your refrigeration efficiency.
A properly formulated Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additive does not treat the oil, it treats the METAL. First, it displaces the oil adhering to the walls of your piping. Then, it remains in place providing a barrier which stops oil from adhering after treatment.
Polarized Refrigerant Oil Additives will even displace "cooked" (or carbonized) deposits, allowing them to be flushed or cleaned out and will be caught up in the system's dryer. This is one of the reasons it is so important to perform follow-up checks after installation.
