Air Compressor Lubricants

Air Compressor Lubricants

IAC takes pride in providing the best rotary screw compressor fluids in the industry. All of our fluids are designed specifically for the rigorous requirements of today’s compressors in a multitude of environments.

Don’t be fooled by the numerous low cost look alike fluids available in the market today. While many companies claim they provide a “same as” fluid at a lower cost, it simply isn’t the case. IAC's fluids are highly engineered to provide optimum performance and energy conservation and the “same as” fluids just don’t match up.

Unlike other lubricants, both mineral and synthetic, Quadra-Coolant performs outstanding in both cold and hot environments.

Quadra-Coolant is not only varnish free but will also dissolve varnish from other lesser quality lubricants. This will extend the life of your compressor and add reliability. Without the added resistance caused by varnish your compressor will run cooler and save energy.

Quadra-Coolant provides extremely long life, at least 8 to 10 times as long as mineral oils. It has 20% to 50% longer life than other synthetic lubricants. This saves you both in the cost of the lubricant and in disposal costs.

CS-8000 is premium air compressor oil, capable of giving the best available performance in any oil-flooded air compressor of screw or vane type. Based on selected synthetic base fluids CS-8000 provides long oil life and effective lubrication in machines working in extremes of temperature and working conditions.

CS-8000 is designed for use in rotary vane and screw air compressors, oil flooded single and two-stage compressors, in particular those operating with higher output pressures of up to 20 bar and with air discharge temperatures higher than 100 °C (including intermittent operation under these conditions). CS-8000 is suitable for the equipment running under severe conditions. May also be used where exceptionally high ambient temperatures are found, when the oil temperature cannot be reduced to normal levels.

For almost 30 years leading OEM’s have used PAG/POE lubricant blends as the primary factory fill for their rotary screw compressors. These are excellent fluids, which have been proven to offer a long service life while remaining varnish free. These fluids are comprised of Polyalkylene
Glycol (PAG) and Polyolester (POE).

The genuine OEM formula consists of approximately 2/3 PAG and 1/3 POE, blended with the proper system of additives. The Para-Lube additives include an optimized
ratio of antioxidants and a barium corrosion inhibitor to ensure a long fluid life. Many distributors offer an aftermarket version of OEM fluids. IAC is the only distributor offering a “TRUE” OEM equivalent that is a complete chemical match to the OEM fluid.

Food grade compressor lubricant has progressed
significantly over the past 20 years through advancement in base oil options and approaches in addictive chemistry leading to an improved finished fluid performance. Historically food grade lubricants were expected to be changed quarterly or at 2,000 operating hours, the FGXL
Series is able to perform much longer maintaining a significantly reduced risk of premature fluid degradation impacting machine performance.

The combination of the naturally high viscosity index of the base fluid and the proprietary additive system enables the FGXL Series of lubricants to provide outstanding performance. The FGXL series has exceptional longevity
and a strong resistance to chemical degradation, these products ensure trouble-free operation in the food and beverage processing/packaging industries.
