Air Compression Lubricant Testing

Lubrication is a critical element when it comes to air compressor operation. Typically most factories and manufacturing facilities use compressed air systems for a variety of applications. Nearly all air compressors require a form of lubricant to cool, seal or lubricate internal components. Proper lubrication will ensure that equipment maintains proper function, which assists in avoiding costly downtime and repairs.

Proper air compressor lubrication results in running cooler and consuming less electrical energy. Reduced friction causes heat reduction which reduces energy consumption. Compressed air systems in most manufacturing plants consume a majority of the daily power requirements, therefore proper lubrication is essential.
