An oil lubricated rotary screw compressor will not operate efficiently without proper lubrication. The oil in this type of compressor cycles thousands of times daily. The air compressor oil absorbs the heat caused by compression and is cooled before being reused. The oil is sheared by the rotors as it seals the rotor clearances.
Failure to properly lubricate a reciprocating compressor leads to friction, causing parts to wear down over time. The right type of air compressor oil for your compressor depends on whether you are compressing air or gas, as well as the required discharge pressure of your system.
Always use the proper type of oil when lubricating your air compressor. Each compressor has a proper weight and grade of oil that is needed which is specified by the manufacturer. Also, keep up with the recommended maintenance schedules to keep your oil from breaking down and becoming less effective.
Synthetic air compressor oils are recommended for most compressed air system applications, due to superior lubrication and performance.
