SH Series has a solution for every air compressor need and budget

April 01, 2021

When you invest in an air compressor, you want its operations to be smooth, efficient and trucking along with as little maintenance as possible. Summit’s line of air compressor lubricants deliver those precise qualities. But which line of Summit lubricant best suits your air compression needs?

For rotary screw compressors, two of your best options are the Ultima Series and the SH Series. Both offer high performance, low pour points and excellent compatibility. So which to choose? The Ultima is Summit’s premium product designed for oil-flooded air compressors that operate at extreme pressures and temperatures. But, of course, many of those qualities are wasted on air compressors that operate in standard conditions.

That’s when you need Summit’s best-selling air-compressor lubricant, the SH Series.

It’s a synthetic manufactured from high-quality synthetic hydrocarbon base-stocks that features:

  • Low pour-point: This eliminates the need to preheat or prep the lubricant before you can get to work. No coagulation. Simply cold-start the compressor and go.
  • High viscosity indexes, which offers a stable lubricating film over a wider temperature range.
  • Compatibility with commonly-used seal materials
  • Resistance to the heat and moisture that often breaks down lubricants, leading to varnish within the rotor.

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the SH Series is more than capable of running hotter and faster than the competition. While most lubricants begin to degrade at 180F, the SH averages temperatures of up to 220F while maintaining a drain interval of 8,000 hours. That means your air compressor will run at top performance for longer.

With five different grades, Summit’s SH Series lubricant has a variant that will fit every need and budget without ever sacrificing quality and performance.

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.
