Lubricants that do not require cleaning are generally referred to as evaporatives, because a majority of the lubricant evaporates from the fins surface. However, there are some lubricants (primarily used for tube bending and expansion) that do not evaporate and remain on the tubings surfaces. These Tridan® Lubricants are compatible with refrigerant oils as well as both old and new generations of refrigerants. The major disadvantage of these non-cleaning lubricants is their limited ability to drawing high fin collars.
