The purchase, installation and upkeep of industrial machinery is a large investment for any company. In order to protect their investment, it makes sense for companies to do all they can to maintain and make sure they get the maximum service life possible out of their equipment. Proper lubrication is essential to getting the most service possible out of industrial machinery.
Industrial air compressors are subject to severe operating conditions. High heat and pressure conditions typical in air compressors can degrade internal components, severely shortening the air compressor's operating life. In order to combat these high heat and pressure conditions, it is crucial to use a high quality air compressor oil.
Consumers have a variety of options when it comes to air compressor oils. Equipment manufacturers often produce their own brands of air compressor oil, and other oils on the market are engineered to specifically enhance one property of the oil at the expense of the other properties. As a result, an oil may be top notch when it comes to rust protection, but it falters in its heat reducing properties. This weakens the overall performance of the air compressor oil. To ensure proper and effective lubrication, air compressor oils should maintain a balance between all lubricating properties.
AMSOIL offers the right Synthetic Air Compressor Oil for your application:
AMSOIL PCI Synthetic Air Compressor Oil offers the best overall protection for industrial equipment. Designed for use up to 8,000 hours in normal operating environments with oil analysis recommended every 1,000 hours. PCI Synthetic Air Compressor Oil is recommended for use in rotary screw, vane, centrifugal, and reciprocating compressors. also recommended for light duty R&O Gear and Bearing applications, blowers, pumps and hand held pneumatic tools.
A recent 14-test Study of Compressor Oils showed certain competing air compressor oils performed slightly better than AMSOIL PCI Synthetic Air Compressor Oil in specific areas, but those same competing brands faltered in other areas and circumstances. With the right balance between all lubrication properties, AMSOIL PCI Synthetic Air Compressor Oil was the most versatile oil in the tests.
Designed for use up to 8,000+ hours in normal operating conditions with oil analysis recommended every 1,000 hours. Sirocco Synthetic Ester Compressor Oil is recommended for use in rotary screw air compressors that require an ISO-32 or ISO-48 oil or coolant.
Designed for use up to 8,000+ hours in normal operating conditions with oil analysis every 1,000 hours. AMSOIL Diester Compressor Oil is recommended for use in reciprocating compressors that require an ISO-100 lubricant and in applications with high discharge temperatures to minimize hard carbon valve deposits.
