This resource provides valuable information on a variety of fluid producers including Sullair, Atlas Copco®, Kaeser®, Ingersoll Rand®, Quincy®, and aftermarket air compressor fluids like Royal Purple® and Summit®. This resource is packed with information on base stocks, fluid analysis, viscosity, fluid life, glossary of air compressor terminology, and general air compressor guidelines.

Why do air compressors need fluids?
Lubricate bearings
Removes heat: The fluid needs to remove the heat of compression. This heat is not caused by friction, but by the physics of the compressed air itself.
Seal the Rotor: Since the rotors do not touch, the fluid creates the necessary air tight seal with its film.

Why do air compressor fluids have additives? The additives in compressor fluids
Prevent corrosion
Extend the life of the fluid
Prevents or minimizes foam in the compressor’s sump tank
Improves lubricity

The quality and level of technology in the additive package of a fluid dramatically affect its performance. The proprietary blends of Sullair’s air compressor fluid additive packages are carefully formulated to perform at the highest levels.

This Air Compressor Fluid Reference provides:
Pros and cons of each common air compressor fluid base stock used in rotary screw air compressors
Charts the top competitive fluids and their base stocks
