Air Compressor Oil Products

A Compressor reliability program including using high performance lubricants is critical to an efficient operation.  Most factories and manufacturing facilities use compressed gas systems for a variety of applications, and keeping these air compressors running is critical to keeping the entire operation running. Nearly all compressors require a form of lubricant to cool, seal or lubricate internal components. Proper lubrication will ensure that your equipment will continue operating, and the plant will avoid costly downtime and repairs. Proper lubrication also will help compressors run cooler and consume less electrical energy.

 

It is simple: reduced friction = reduced heat = reduced energy consumption.

 

Compressed air systems in most manufacturing plants consume a majority of the daily power requirements, so if you are looking for a continuous improvement project, reducing energy costs through better lubricant practices is a sure winner.
