Air compressor oil

3 posts in this topic

We have a compressor at work that calls for 10-30 non-detergent oil. I found 30w non-detergent next door but no 10-30...OK or not?

Do you mean 10W-30 or do you mean it can be SAE10 to SAE30?

I have never seen a multi-grade rating on an oil defined or labeled specifically as a 'compressor oil'.

What type of compressor is this? A shop or industrial or speciality, piston or rotary? Standard air compressor or industrial gas of some type?

AMSOIL has 5 different viscosities of compressor oils available, all are rated as single viscosity without a multi-viscosity rating. However they all carry a very high viscosity index (around 135) which means they will perform exceptionally well in the cold specification, however they haven't been rated (tested) and labeled multigrade.

The most common is our ISO 100/SAE 40 Piston Compressor Oil (the most common specified for most piston/shop compressors) (data sheet for this and the others are on this page). The ISO 46/SAE 20 and the ISO 100/SAE 40 are available in quarts, 5 gallon pails and drums, the 10, 30 and 50 are not packaged in quarts.

The manual calls for SAE10W-30 non-detergent - I want to know if its OK to run 30W non-detergent in it. Its a twin piston Puma.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
