Compressed air systems are common in industrial plants and used in a wide variety of applications. The majority of air compressors need a lubricant to cool, seal or lubricate internal components.
Using the right lubrication is important to maximise performance, ensure equipment longevity and to reduce energy costs. LE offers a range of suitable products for compressors (whether centrifugal, reciprocating, rotary screw, rotary vane or dry screw compressors) that offer:
- Effective lubrication and heat absorption
- Corrosion prevention
- Wear protection
- Correct viscosity
- Ideal temperature range
- Anti-foaming and anti-oxidation properties
- Demulsibility properties (to effectively separate from water)
- Filterability without additive depletion
