Lubricating Oil for Air Compressors

How do you choose the right oil for your air compressor?

Whether you are compressing ammonia (NH3) and carbon dioxide (CO2) for keeping food cool or adding carbon dioxide to your beverages or even compressing air for blowing beverage bottles, compressors are key elements for food production and cold storage. Your compressors have to withstand extremely high speeds, temperatures and pressures. On the other hand, you also expect a reliable compressor with a minimum downtime. Hence, choosing the right compressor oil is vital.

Energy is also a major factor in air compressor operating costs. Synthetic lubricants offer a significant economic advantage by improving thermal and mechanical efficiency. This reduces friction and result in reduced power consumption and lower operating temperatures for your compressor.

How can lubricants influence your operating costs or reduce your energy consumption? You can optimise the performance of your compressors with lubricants from Klüber Lubrication.

Klüber Lubrication compressor oils - your benefits at a glance:

  • Reduced downtime
  • Reduced costs for replacement parts, oil filters and oil separators
  • Lower energy consumption and lower disposal quantities
  • Reduced friction in the compressor
  • Longer oil life
  • Extended oil change intervals

The right lubricants for your field of application:

The Klüber Summit product range is proven for compressors of all types. They minimise wear and extend service intervals for higher compressor availability.

1 The indicated oil change intervals are guide values which are based on practical experience. They depend on the intended use, the application method and the technical condition of the compressor. Lubricants change their condition depending on the mechano-dynamical loads, pressures and temperatures and the mixture with oil residues or buildups of the previous oils fills. Such changes in product properties may have an effect on the oil change intervals and the function of components.
