An air compressor is a device that converts power into kinetic energy by compressing and pressurizing air. The lubrication requirements for air compressors can differ considerably based on the type of compressor being used and its point of application.

The two main types of air compressors are reciprocating and rotary compressors. Correct use of high-quality lubricants can substantially extend compressor life, providing maintenance and production savings in the longer term. IQLubricants has designed esters for air compressor applications which are highly stable, low volatility and good heat transfer.

90 - 97% Ester (Saturated Polyol ester, Diester, Trimellitates) Base Lubricant
0 - 5% PMMA or PIB Viscosity index improver Thickener
0,5 - 1,5% Aminic antioxidant High temperature antioxidant
0 - 0,5% Phenolic antioxidant Medium temperature antioxidant
0,5 - 2,5% Antiwear Improves boundary lubrication
0,3 - 0,1% Anticorrosion additive Reduces corrosion of ferrous metals
0,03 - 0,05% Copper deactivator Reduces cooper corrosion
2 - 200 ppm Antifoam Reduces foaming


  • Reduce deposits
  • Reduce wear
  • Extend drain intervals (reduce consumption)
  • Superior lubricity
  • Extend equipment life
  • Improve energy efficiency
  • Better operating temperature range
  • Better viscosity index (viscosity stability)
  • Lower operating temperatures (make increase oil life)
  • Safer, healthier and better environmental behavior
