The Montreal Protocol was established in 1987 to stop the production and import of ozone depleting substances, mainly CFCs, and reduce their concentration in the atmosphere to protect the earth’s ozone layer. Subsequently, the Kigali Amendment in 2016 was aimed at the phasedown of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) to reduce carbon emissions by cutting their production and consumption.
The refrigeration and airconditioning industry has diligently worked to meet the challenges of these regulations. These two agreements have effectively driven the direction of the working fluid technology in the refrigeration and air conditioning industry over the last 30+ years, and CPI has led the charge since the beginning. In the future, as we move toward the goal of working fluids with zero ozone depletion (ODP), zero global warming potential (GWP) and high efficiency, CPI is well positioned to meet any lubrication challenge.
50 years of experience
Our 50 years of experience navigating through the changes the refrigeration industry has seen makes us an ideal partner to guide our customers through the transition to low GWP refrigerants. We are base oil agnostic, meaning that we will develop and recommend the best lubricant for a customers system rather than force-fitting an existing solution.
Our research and development team and labs have a wide range of technology at their disposal to help our customer’s make the best decision. As a division of The Lubrizol Corporation, we have access to powerful testing capabilities and a robust supply chain to develop long term lubricant solutions.
