Entry by Isel Staff

Category: Q&A

For more than 23 years, Isel’s unique approach to lubricant manufacturing has combined detailed knowledge of refrigeration systems with one of the most agile lubricant production methods available.

Today, Isel is proud to announce that we are unifying the various Isel Refrigeration product names under a single international refrigeration brand – NXT Refrigeration Lubricants.

NXT Logo - Blue & Grey

The NXT Refrigeration Lubricants product adds meaningful and descriptive product names that reflect the appropriate refrigeration application(s). Our new branding structure facilitates differentiation of all refrigeration lubricants without having to look up a product data sheet or marketing document.

This new brand represents a chance for you to maximize the success of your lubricant program by taking advantage of the work Isel has put into achieving valuable certifications, OEM approvals, and a growing brand awareness.

We are happy to announce that by utilizing the new NXT Refrigeration Lubricants product names, you can now claim OEM approval for select NXT Refrigeration products.

These are the same high quality, reliable products customers around the world have been using in their refrigeration systems. This change to the NXT Refrigeration Lubricants brand is a part of Isel’s ongoing customer service initiative to bring more value to the customer experience, helping you increase your sales to end users. 

Learn more about our NXT Refrigeration Lubricants by contacting us today at 1-800-503-9533—we’re always happy to answer any inquiries you may have.
