Compressor Lubricants- Air Compressor Lubricants from Summit.
Summit Industrial Products is recognized as an industry leader in synthetic lubricant technology.Since Summit Industrial Products is not basic in any particular base-fluid, it is free to choose among the various fluids to formulate the best lubricant for each application.
Summit Lubricant-Coolant is formulated from the best diester base stocks available and employs state of the art additive technology to provide an outstanding lubricant and coolant. Lubricant-Coolant is an excellent lubricant for the applications like rotary screw and vane compressors, ball and roller bearings, low temperature lubrication and high temperature lubrication.
Summit AU-46 is a silicone-based fluid designed
for use in rotary screw compressors. AU-46 does not breakdown under normal operating temperatures and pressures
thereby eliminating carbon deposits, sludge and varnish formations. The system stays clean
of lubricant by-products resulting in lower maintenance costs. The high viscosity index insures
a minimum change in viscosity over the compressor's temperature range. AU-46 has excellent water separation,
corrosion protection and lubricity characteristics.
The use of petroleum lubricants, primarily automatic transmission fluid (ATF), in rotary screw and rotary vane compressors results in the formation of varnish and carbon. The varnish and carbon is deposited throughout the system and can cause a number of serious operational problems, resulting in excessively high maintenance costs.
Summit's Varnasolv can help alleviate the problems caused by varnish and carbon. Varnasolv is designed to be used as an additive in the lubricant to remove and suspend varnish while the compressor is in operation. Using Varnasolv eliminates the need for disassembling the compressor for cleaning. For maximum benefit, use Varnasolv prior to each lubricant change.
