In today’s competitive and challenging market - you need every advantage you can get!
One simple, yet very significant advantage is selecting Quality Synthetic Compressor Lubricants
over conventional, mineral oil-based lubricants for your air compressor.
Three Biggest Pay-Offs in changing from mineral oil-based lubricants to Synthetic Compressor lubricants.
#1. Lower Your Electric Bill by increasing energy efficiency
Compressor Synthetic Lubricants can actually reduce energy consumption in many applications, up to 9%
as compared to conventional mineral oils.
Compressor Synthetic Lubricants help minimize friction between moving parts. ( less friction = less amp draw )
Energy can be lost due to "churn" as mechanical parts move through oil: Compressor Synthetics Lubricants have a lower viscosity when compared to mineral counterparts of the same ISO viscosity grade , resulting in lower churn energy loss than a mineral oil.
#2. Get a Better Return on Your Investment by extending equipment life
When you lower the energy consumption with compressor synthetic lubricants you decrease friction which means less wear. Less wear = longer life.
Whether your equipment runs in extreme hot or in cold conditions, Compressor Synthetic Lubricants are more effective over a wider range of operating temperatures than mineral-based products.
>In very hot conditions
, Compressor Synthetics remain thicker for better protection. Compressor Synthetics do not degrade in high temperatures as fast as mineral-based oils either.
>In lower temperatures
, Compressor Synthetics offer excellent flow characteristics, unlike mineral-based oils that tend to get too thick to flow well when cold and can limit protection to critical parts.
#3. Lower Maintenance Costs by using Less Labor & Materials
Compressor Synthetic Lubricants usually last up to 8-10 times longer
than mineral oil equivalents. This translates into...
>Reduced oil purchases
>Less used-oil to dispose
>Fewer oil changes
- fewer hours your maintenance team must spend on oil changes
because of lubricant-related problems such as valve maintenance.
