You always need specialist air compressor oils but you must choose Altair Plus oil for your compressor if your system is working under heavy loads. We have engineered this fully synthetic oil so it can cope with this environment.
What does a heavy load for an air compressor mean?
This means that your compressor is being used to drive tools that use more than 90 PSIG (pounds per square inch gauge). If you run your compressor in a garage workshop, a bodyshop or in industry, it is probably under heavy loads. You really need to keep your essential air tools running so you need an elite, fully synthetic oil. You need Altair Plus.
If you need some more advice on the best oil for you, you can find out some examples of typical amounts of compressed air different tools use and look at our detailed guide to choosing an air compressor. Alternatively, you can simply ask our LiveChat team to help you choose your oil.
Altair Plus has all the same great benefits in terms of performance and reliability that you’ll get from all the Altair compressor oils. These are the only lubricants we recommend and you can also buy Altair compressor oils in 1L, 2L and 5L bottles on this site. Remember to buy your ABAC original equipment performance and service kit before you go. You need to follow our guidelines on how often you should service your compressor to keep it running efficiently and reliably.
Remember that cheaper alternatives might seem appealing but there’s no guarantee they’ll keep your system performing well. You simply can’t put a price on reliability.
