Air Compressor Lubricants

Compressed air systems are common in the majority of industrial plants for a variety of applications. Air compressors are critical to keeping the entire operation running. The majority of air compressors need a lubricant to cool, seal or lubricate internal components, and correct lubrication ensures reliable equipment and lower maintenance and operating costs.

Reduced energy costs

Correct lubrication also allows the air compressors to run cooler and consume less electrical energy: Reduced friction = reduced heat = reduced energy consumption. Compressed air systems are generally responsible for the majority of daily power requirements; reducing energy costs via superior lubrication practices is an effective way of providing big savings for companies.

Lubricants have a vital role to play in sealing, preventing corrosion, preventing wear and protecting internal metal parts. LE has a range of lubricants for most compressor types, whether they are centrifugal, reciprocating, rotary screw, rotary vane or dry screw compressors.

When identifying the correct air compressor lubricant, viscosity requirements are an important factor. Next, a lubricant should provide the following benefits.

  • Nonfoaming characteristics
  • Demulsibility properties to effectively separate from water
  • Excellent rust and corrosion protection
  • High oxidation stability to maintain viscosity and long life
  • Filterability without additive depletion

Lubrication Engineers recommends that lubricants should always meet or exceed OEM specifications. In doing so, your expensive equipment will last longer and run more efficiently.

  Monolec® Synthetic Industrial Oil 9000 Series (8 Grades)

  • Monolec® Syn Industrial Oil (9032-9150, 9220-9460) is designed to prolong equipment life by combating the effects of high temperatures, contamination and loads that accelerate wear. It is a versatile synthetic lubricant that meets or exceeds the requirements of gearboxes, air compressors, vacuum pumps, hydraulic systems, and roll mill bearings found in the textile, plastic, rubber and paper industries. It is formulated with high-viscosity 100 percent synthetic base oil and a specially developed additive package for applications running at extreme temperatures. The additive package provides outstanding thermal stability and rust and oxidation resistance as well as wear resistance as pressures and temperatures rise. A foam suppressant completes the package. The base oil and additive formulation works synergistically to reduce wear, extend oil drain intervals, reduce oil consumption, and practically eliminate deposits and sludge formation, all while providing excellent compatibility with seals.
  • Available in 8 Grades: ISO32 / ISO46 / ISO68 / ISO100 / ISO150 / ISO220 / ISO320 / ISO460
  • Available in 5ltr, 20ltr, 208ltr drums.
