Hi-Tec Synthetic Compressor Oils are synthetic, zinc free, ashless, anti-wear oils blended from a complex mixture of PAO base stocks and esters possessing a very high viscosity index and low pour point. These oils give a long trouble free service life and will be chemically stable under severe operating conditions. They give excellent protection against corrosion; resist emulsification and any formation of unwanted stable foam.
The continuing trend towards higher compressor system pressures and reductions in pump and equipment sizes requires higher performance levels from the lubricants used. Hard working compressor oils are called upon to lubricate, seal and cool the working components under increasing temperature, turbulence and pressure. The continuing need to maintain performance over extended service intervals requires that the specification of additive systems also continues to advance.
Hi-Tec Synthetic Compressor Oils are formulated to meet all these requirements, using synthetic polyalphaolefin based oils and esters, augmented with performance additives including a special ashless multifunctional oxidation, rust and wear inhibiting additive package with superior service life under extreme pressures and temperatures.
The performance benefits of these formulations include:
- Excellent thermal and hydrolytic stability
- Very high oxidation stability: extended service life
- Good demulsibility and anti-foam properties
- High load carrying capacity – excellent EP performance
- Excellent corrosion protection for steel and non-ferrous metals
- Good filterability – lower tendency to block filters
- Reduced pump wear
