Synthetic oil improves compressor efficiency

According to a local lubrication specialist, the use of high quality, 100 per cent synthetic oil in compressors can improve their efficiency.

Amsoil distributor Enginecare Systems says lubricants such as Amsoil PC Series oil have been specially formulated to provide low friction properties that boost operating efficiency and resist viscosity increase from oxidation.

Amsoil says the increase in efficiency also saves money by reducing electrical energy consumption. The oil is a long-life, premium compressor lubricant based on novel proprietary technology.

It incorporates premium grade, thermally stable polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetics fortified with premium non-detergent, ashless additives for maximum protection at high temperatures and pressures.

PAO chemistry is the industry?s premier base stock technology. Unlike mineral-based chemistries, Amsoil PAO base stocks contain fully saturated, hydrogenated molecules and are free of wax and other impurities.

Amsoil PC Series oil in the appropriate viscosity is recommended for use in single and multi-stage rotary screw, vane, centrifugal and reciprocating compressor crankcases and cylinders, vacuum pumps and other applications such as gears, bearings, blowers, pumps and hand-held pneumatic tools.
