Reciprocating Compressor Lubricant-Synthetic
Reciprocating compressors can produce high temperatures! Using regular mineral-based oil, or your typical 30 weight, non-detergent oil can have harmful long-term effects on your air compressor. Conventional oil breaks down fast at high temperatures causing the heart and sole of your compressor, your valves, to carbon up. Once this happens your compressor runs hotter and hotter, for longer periods of time to produce the same amount of air it did when it was new. Switching to our Synthetic Lubricant may cost a few dollars more, but your compressor will love you for it! Benefits include; reduced temperatures, valves self-clean themselves and possible shorter load times. Give our Synthetic a shot.......Your compressor will love you for it!
