AIR COMPRESSOR OIL, WHERE TO BUY AIR COMPRESSOR OIL





AIR COMPRESSOR OIL FOR RECIPROCATING COMPRESSORS:

It's a know fact that when you compress air, the temperature rises.  The heat variation may produce excess moisture  in the storage tank.  The compressor oil lubricates while cooling the air as it is pushed into the tank.  Thus, less moisture and less chance of corrosion forming on the metal parts inside the pump.

Air-compressor oil is usually a synthetic oil that does not contain detergents commonly found in motor oil. Air-compressor oil is manufactured specifically for use in lubricating the ball bearings inside a compressor and is generally the recommended choice by manufacturers of air compressors. A synthetic oil also helps reduce carbon deposits within the compressor.






A good synthetic compressor oil will typically have no additives or Sulphur that could produce a build up on the valve plates.  Air compressor oil is formulated to work with air compressors!! Motor oil is formulated to work with combustion engines!!!



FRANKENSTEIN SAID, "FIRE BAD"!!!






HE SHOULD HAVE SAID, "MOTOR OIL BAD FOR AIR COMPRESSOR"












Automotive oils contain detergents and dispersants to deal with blow-by, as well as EP additives. These are ash containing and contribute to valve deposits in reciprocating air compressors.

1. What Type Of Oil Are You Currently Using: Knowing what type or brand of oil you are currently using with your air compressor is very CRUCIAL to the performance of your compressor.  Compressors have a long life time and over that lifetime you may have filled it with different brands or types of oil.  Compatibility is key and knowing what type of oil is currently in the unit helps guarantee product compatibility.  Remember the old Pennzoil add on TV “PAY ME NOW OR PAY ME LATER”







2. Viscosity Requirements:  Different types of compressors use different types of viscosities of oil. Rotary Screw Compressors generally use a 32, 46, or 68 viscosities.  Piston and Reciprocating Compressors generally use 100 viscosities such as (Teresstic ISO 100). Maintaining viscosity helps keep your air compressor running and lubricating, avoiding costly repairs and a costly shut down.


3. Performance: Always look for high performance oil. Excellent rust and corrosion protection, high oxidation stability, and a non-foaming formula.  DO NOT put motor oil into your compressor!!!!

Not to sound redundant, but air Compressor Oil is designed to reduce carbon buildup in compressor valves to ensure a longer compressor life. The non-detergent, single viscosity, 30-weight oil provides the proper mix of lubricants for compressors for function properly and efficiently.





Using the right air compressor oil for your compressor is very important. This is true for both rotary screw air compressors and reciprocating compressors. You can’t just use your cars oil or hydraulic oil!!!!! Compressor oil has a few important functions:

  • It removes heat from the compression
  • It works as a sealing to prevent air leakage.
  • It lubricates all moving parts
  • It’s used to cool important parts of the compressor element.

Air compressor oil is specifically designed to do the above jobs well. If you use oil from your car, your compressor WILL DIE!!

Compressors (and the oil) can get very hot.. normal maximum outlet temperature of a rotary screw compressor element is set at 120 degrees Celsius (if it gets hotter than this, your screw compressor will shut down).

Oil failure








If you would operate your compressor on a too high temperature for a too long time, the oil will form a thin layer on the entire inside of your compressor (piping, compressor element, oil cooler). When this happens to your oil-cooler, it won’t be able to cool the oil as effectively as it used to. 

When this happens to your compressor, the ‘contaminated’ parts and especially the poor oil-cooler need to be chemically cleaned or replaced by new ones.

So it’s important to prevent this:
don’t let your compressor run too hot, and use the right kind of oil. Special compressor oil is designed to resist these high temperatures.  Contact H&K Pump in Dallas, Texas for service at:

How often do you change the oil in a compressor?



Typically, with a rotary screw compressor, you should change the oil every 7000 – 8000 hours that it has been used. For a reciprocating air compressor, you should change the oil every 3 months, ideally. It is important, however, that you change the oil at least once in a year.

Can I use automotive engine oil in my air compressor?


NO, NO, NO!!!! Auto engine oil contains detergents and other additives that can cause problems in compressors. In some cases, using car oil can cause a build up on both sides of the valves in your compressor pump.  This buildup will cause the compressor to run less efficiently and wear out faster because of the increased strain on the air pump.

air compressor pressure switch, pressure switches







WHAT IS A PRESSURE SWITCH?




A pressure switch is a device that senses changes in fluid pressure and responds in a specified way. An actuated pressure switch makes or disrupts electrical contact in order to either trigger an alarm or switch something on or off. Switches are programmed to activate at certain pressure points, and may be designed to make contact either on pressure rise or on pressure fall.

 Pressure switches consist of a switch mechanism that is connected to a bellow or diaphragm that reacts to system pressure. They are selected by operating range and differential. Operating range is the pressure limits in which the switch will work. Differential is the difference between the cut-in and cut-out pressures. Pressure switch settings, common to many air compressors, are set for a range of 40 to 250 PSI and an adjustable differential of 35 to 60 PSI. This means that the lowest pressure that the switch can be set to close at is 40 PSI, and the highest pressure it can be set to open at is 250 PSI. The differential that is actually available to use varies with the pressure range you’re actually working in.

The 69J is the most adaptable switch on the market, the and offers the user the flexibility to build the pressure switch around the compressor - not the other way around. The unloader can be mounted on the front or either side, and can be rotated to any of eight different positions allowing for quicker assembly and shorter tubing. Bottom cable entry is also available with unique built-in clamping strain relief for even quicker assembly.
