PROGILINE® AIR (AIR COMPRESSOR) LUBRICANTS

PROGILINE®AIR 8000 series are fully synthetic premium quality air compressor lubricants specifically designed to ensure rotary screw air compressors maintain optimum performance at a full range of operating temperatures.

PROGILINE® AIR 8000 series are formulated with superior PAG and POE basestocks in combination with a state-of-the-art additive package. The formulation provides outstanding performance in cooling, anti-wear protection, thermal stability and anti-oxidative properties.

The formulation is designed to ensure an absence of sludge, gum and coke formation. The expected product lifetime at typical air compressor operating conditions is 8000 hours.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PROGILINE® AIR 8000 AIR COMPRESSOR LUBRICANTS?

1. Long system life - PROGILINE® AIR 8000 series is designed to help air compressors resist oxidation to ensure they last far longer reducing maintenance costs.

2. Optimised cooling performance - Our air compressor lubricant ensures an extended service life for equipment and extended service intervals.

3. Excellent Lubricity - Our PROGILINE® AIR 8000 series enables optimal lubricity for rotary screw air compressors reducing wear and tear significantly, while increasing the capacity for workload.

4. High viscosity index - This allows for excellent viscosity-temperature behaviour thereby always ensuring adequate lubricant oil film from start-up to maximum operating conditions

5. Low product volatility - PROGILINE® AIR 8000 series ensures an absence of insoluble residues such as gum, varnish, sludge and coke, resulting in longer lifetime, lower maintenance cost and lower oil consumption rate.

6. Outstanding thermal and chemical stability - Our air compressor lubricant is designed to perform extremely well in air compressors delivering optimal performance across both thermal and chemical environments.

7. Rust and corrosion protection - With our air compressor lubricant your air compressor equipment and components will benefit from rust and corrosion protection, delivering longer equipment lifetime.

8. Readily biodegradable - Our Air Compressor Lubricants are readily biodegradable.


AIR COMPRESSORS HAVE DIFFERENT REQUIREMENTS

At Shrieve we understand that lubrication requirements vary across air compressor types. Ensuring your compressor stands the test of time our air compressor lubricant plays an important part to ensure longer equipment lifetime, rust and corrosion prevention and reduced maintenance costs. We recommend getting in contact with us to help select the best gas compressor lubricants for your requirements.

  • Resists oxidation for long system life
  • Optimised cooling performance resulting in extended service intervals and equipment lifetime
  • Excellent lubricity, anti-wear property and load-carrying capability
  • High viscosity index for excellent viscosity-temperature behaviour thereby always ensuring adequate lubricant oil film from start-up to maximum operating conditions
  • Low product volatility and an absence of insoluble residues such as gum, varnish, sludge and coke, resulting in longer lifetime, lower maintenance cost and lower oil consumption rate
  • Outstanding thermal and chemical stability
  • Excellent rust and corrosion protection for longer component life
  • Readily biodegradable

These lubricants should not be mixed with mineral oil or PAO lubricants – complete drain, flush and refill is required. They show solvency towards common alkyd oil-based paints, but epoxy-based paints are typically resistive. If surfaces contacting the lubricant have been painted, they should be monitored for softening and lifting of the paint, and frequent maintenance of filters may be required.

PROGILINE® AIR 8000 series are compatible with standard hose and seal materials, and show preferable compatibility with elastomer types Viton, NBr and Fluoro-rubber. Elastomer types Neoprene, natural rubber, SBR, Buna-S and Butyl rubber are not recommended.

Please contact your regional Shrieve office for detailed application and compatibility recommendations together with further information on equipment conversion/change out procedures.
