The different types of oil lubricated air compressors

An air compressor is a machine that converts power into kinetic energy by compressing and pressurising atmospheric air. This air is then released for use in tooling, instrumentation and other process applications as an energy source.

Compressed air is sometimes referred to as the fourth utility in industry, due to its widespread use. Among its many functions are pneumatics (the use of pressurised gases to produce mechanical motion), as an energy storage medium, breathing (in scuba diving) and inflating buoyancy devices, air start systems in engines, filing tires, and as medical air and surgical air in hospitals.

As the name suggests, oil lubricated compressors use a special type of air compressor oil, of which there are a number of synthetically manufactured formats. In order to meet the different requirements of our customers, we are proud to have a range of oil lubricated air compressors, which we will look at in further detail here:
