Lubrication is the vital element required for the reliable, safe and economic operation of the compressors.
How to choose between standard and synthetic compressor oil?
The choice between these two types of oil totally depends on the usage of your compressor.
● If your compressor comes to use more or equal to three times a week then synthetic
oils can prove to be a better choice for you. It will allow your machine to work
smoother as synthetic oils fight to overheat.
● If you use your compressors once a week or less frequently, then standard oils
should be your choice as they are cost-effective and consumer-friendly.

Compressor oils are lubricants used in mechanical devices that reduce the volume of gases while increasing the pressure for use in a range of applications. These lubricants are made from petroleum-based mineral oils or synthetic compounds such as poly-olefins, esters and polyalkylene glycols, among others.
Compressor Oil is made up of highly refined paraffinic base oils and high-performance additives that provide excellent lubrication in rotary and reciprocating air compressors. All ISO viscosity grades are designed to provide excellent oxidation resistance, wear protection, rust and corrosion resistance, quick water separation, and foam management.
In most compressor applications, compressor oil is designed to ensure long service life. These fluids' thermal stability and oxidation resistance can help keep compressors cleaner, allowing for longer durations between planned maintenance and oil changes. The superior anti-wear and corrosion protection is designed to extend the life of the equipment while lowering maintenance costs.
• Recommended for vacuum pumps and R&O lubricants in other industrial oil applications, Compressor Oil 68 is suited for rotary vane and screw compressors.
• Compressor oil should not be used for air or oxygen compression.
Any air conditioning system that uses a compressor in its compression system requires compressor oil. The oil serves three primary functions. They're employed for lubrication, heat transfer, and sealing. As the piston compresses the refrigerant gas, lubrication cooling is required in reciprocating compressors. It's also necessary to cool the piston's seal in the cylinder.
When Should You Replace the Oil in Your Compressor?
When using normal oil, the compressor will require an oil change every 400 hours. It is necessary to change synthetic oil every 1,000 hours.Always refer to your compressor's operating manual for the most up-to-date information on oil changes.
