Oil injected compressors offer a number of advantages across a range of applications that demand high efficiency and high discharge pressures. The synthetic oil is an integral part of the machine. It is specifically engineered to suit the specific process – it can, for example, be designed to keep the gas within the machine at neutral acidity, whatever its original pH value. Issues such as dew point control and compatibility with the process gas are always considered when selecting the oil.
