How do you choose the right oil for your air compressor?
Question: Would you dump lawnmower oil into your car's engine? Probably not. Your neighbor's, maybe, but not your precious heap of a jalopy.
The same strategy holds true for your air compressor. Just like automobile oil, there are many different grades of air compressor oil to choose from, each designed to meet certain specifications.
Two main factors are involved in choosing the correct oil:
1) The type of compressor. Rotary screw or recip?
2) The environment your compressor operates in. Hot, humid temperatures? Cold? Dirty air? Clean, sterile environment?
Many compressors, many environments, many choices.
Solution? Of course, there is. What's a riddle without an answer?
To help ease your pain when choosing oil for your compressor, FS-Curtis has introduced two new fluid lines: FSC-Max Fluid and Pro Fluid.
FSC-Max Fluid is our core fluid product line and comes with a bold new look. Designed to offer the highest protection for your FS-Curtis products and to operate at 100% efficiency in virtually all environments, FSC-Max will help run your unit efficiently and smoothly in various environments from food grade applications to large industrial.
How much faith do we have in the FSC-Max Fluid line? All FS-Curtis products are tested and shipped from our headquarters and plant in St. Louis, MO., using FSC-Max Fluid.
It's also the only lubricant product line that can validate FS-Curtis extended warranty programs.This is important in order to protect your investment and ensure its longevity.
