SCOPE: This specification establishes the requirements for inhibited polyolester based synthetic compressor
lubricant containing no lubricity enhancing additives. This material is suitable for use in screw compressors
for general purpose refrigeration and air conditioning applications.
MATERIAL: For Carrier plants to purchase materials covered by this specification, and be used in Carrier
products, the material must be approved by Engineering and the suppliers quality system must be
Qualified/Certified by the Carrier user plant.
SUPPLIER APPROVAL: Carrier may elect to test, in accordance with the requirements of this specification,
a quantity of material necessary to give valid results. The material must be supplied from a production run
using standard production methods. Only material that has met all requirements will be classified as
approved. Approved suppliers are listed on the last page of this specification.
SUPPLIER QUALIFICATION/CERTIFICATION: The Carrier user plant, or designated lead purchasing
plant, must qualify/certify all suppliers of production materials in accordance with the existing Carrier
Supplier Quality Assurance Requirements.
PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS:
The following requirements shall be met by all materials covered by this specification.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:
Qualification Testing: Oil submitted for qualification testing must represent current production and be
accompanied by the latest OSHA 20 form (MSDS). The sample will be tested for compliance to the tests in
Performance Requirements and any other CML Product Engineering deems necessary (e.g., a trial production
or field test).
Acceptance And Rejection: Incoming shipments of oil may be tested for conformance to any or all of the
requirements listed in the Performance Requirements. The oil shall also be tested for conformance to the file
sample using gas chromatography. Failure to pass any of the tests may be cause for rejection of the shipment.
MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET:
All materials covered in this specification must have a recent (< 2 years old) copy of an OSHA 20 form
(MSDS) or applicable regional form disclosing hazardous material content on file in the Corporate Industrial
Hygiene Department. Suppliers must supply a copy with each material submitted for qualification or upon
changes in material content or rules governing such disclosures. The Engineering Department requesting this
specification is responsible for delivering the correct form to the Corporate Industrial Hygiene Department.
