Looking for a longer lasting and better quality oil for your compressor? Check out Summit’s NGSH Series.

May 11, 2020

In recent years we’ve seen a need for a lubricant to push the traditional boundaries of compressor-oil life and protection. Compressor OEMs have recognized that a Polyalphaolefin (PAO) can handle a wide range of gas compositions without sacrificing the physical properties of a pure synthetic lubricant.

That’s why Summit’s NGSH Series lubricants are PAO-based lubricants designed to extend the service life of compressor components with additives to resist wear, rust, and corrosion.

We’ve made it easy to switch from a mineral oil or R&O lubricant to a PAO-based lubricant by insuring that our NGSH Series is designed with a lower viscosity.  A lower starting viscosity coupled with a higher Viscosity Index means better pumpability and fewer “no-flow” shutdowns at low temperatures.

The NGSH contains a synthetic ester portion that ­– when compared to straight PAO formulations –provides:

  • better wear protection
  • lower energy consumption
  • less deposit formation in the cylinders/valves.

Additionally, the tenacity of NGSH to resist washing off of the cylinder walls in reciprocating compressor applications allows for feed rates to be reduced 10- to 30-percent for typical applications compared to mineral oils.

Ready to make the switch to a lubricant that will protect your mechanical investments better? Contact Summit’s Gas Compressor Team to see how NGSH can provide the protection your compressor needs.


ISO 9001

Summit first received its ISO 9001 certification in January of 1996, demonstrating a commitment to quality assurance and performance monitoring. ISO 9001 certification is an international quality standard that addresses a comprehensive list of business elements, including management responsibility, order processing, purchasing, process control, traceability, handling of non-conforming product, and internal auditing. Our present ISO 9001 certification is proof of our continuing quality commitment to our customers.

Summit is committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, customers and communities where we work and live. We recognize that through integrating sound environmental health, and safety management practices into all aspects of our business ... we can offer innovative products and services while conserving and enhancing resources for future generations.


NSF ISO 21469

ISO 21469 specifies hygiene requirements for the formulation, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants, which may come into contact with products during manufacturing or processing. The international standard applies to lubricants intended for use in food production, as well as cosmetic, pharmaceutical and animal feed industries. NSF ISO 21469 Certification by an independent, third party provides Summit with a means to obtain international acceptance for their products.
