GC LUBE M Series are compressor oil thatsspecifically formulated from highly refined paraffinicbase oils and leading-edge technology additivesfor the lubrication of rotary and reciprocating aircompressors. The uniquely formulated compressor oilprovides enhanced thermal and oxidative stability tomake possible trouble free operation with minimummalfunctions.
GC LUBE M Series meet the performancerequirements of DIN 51506 VDL air compressorlubricant standards.
- Having excellent thermal and oxidative stabilityto resist oil degradation and thickening for longeroil service life.
- Low sludge forming tendencies to reducemaintenance costs.
- Strong anti-wear and corrosion protection toprolong equipment life.
- Excellent air and water separation for moreefficient compressor operations.
GC LUBE M 32, 46 & 68 are developed forrotary vane and screw compressors. Where as GC LUBE M 68, 100, &150 are effective for reciprocating compressors as well as some typeof rotary compressors.Screw (helical lobe) CompressorsHelical lobe screw compressor consists of two rotorsmounted in a housing. When the rotors rotate theycompress air between helical lobes. They are mostlyof the “flood-lubricated” type and do not utilizetiming gear, ISO VG 32, 46, or 68 is the standardrecommended viscosity. Oil free (dry type) screw compressors usually utilize timing gear; both thegear and bearings are lubricated and refer to themanufacturers’ recommendations for appropriate viscosity.
Sliding Vane Compressors
Sliding vane compressor utilizes centrifugal force ofa rotating vane mounted eccentrically in a cylinder.
Sliding vane compressors are commonly flood orinjection lubricated and usually require an ISO VG
46, 68 or 100 grade. Sparse or “once-through”lubricated types require a heavier grade such as
ISO VG 68 or 100.
