These days compressed air is an important energy transfer medium in a number of technical application areas. The reliable generation of compressed air is of crucial importance to many users and as a result, air compressors are vital equipment in many industrial areas.
As short life or breakdowns can lead to production stoppages, the use of the right lubricant is a prerequisite for the reliable and efficient operation of plant and machinery. In recent years, compressed air generation has been optimized and as a result, greater demands are now placed on air compressor oils.
Operators expect long machinery service intervals and thus also longer life of compressor lubricants. But not just oil change intervals were extended; oil temperatures have risen along with the reduction in oil volumes. To safely satisfy these demands, FUCHS developed special RENOLIN air compressor oils and subjected them to the severest of practical trials.
