NGP 220

NGP 220

When a synthetic oil is not needed, Summit’s NGP 220 of highly refined petroleum based lubricants are formulated to provide some of the same benefits provided by hydrocarbon based synthetics such as PAO and PIB. The additive technology used in the NGP Series enable them to far outperform other mineral oil based lubricants. Some of the benefits are:

• The high viscosity index (V.I.) of NGP 220 is comparable to a synthetic PAO and means a significant increase in operating temperature range over most mineral based oils. It also means a lower viscosity grade NGP 220 product may be used in place of a higher viscosity mineral oil with a lower viscosity index. This can mean lower temperature flow limits and may eliminate the need for heated, pressurized day tanks and heat traced lines. It can also mean better lubricant film strength at higher cylinder and packing temperatures on reciprocating compressors.

• The pour point of the NGP 220 approaches that of a synthetic PAO and may be as much as 25 ºF lower than some mineral based oils. The lower limit may eliminate no flow shutdowns on cold days or the need for special tank and line heaters.

• NGP 220 is made from highly purified petroleum oils that only contain trace amounts of sulfur and other impurities found in group I mineral oils. Impurities common to many mineral oil base stocks can react with components of the gas stream to form by-products harmful to the compressor system.

• NGP 220 is formulated to inhibit against the corrosive effects of wet CO2 and H2S often found in gas compressor applications.

Recommended uses

NGP 220 is tailor made for gas compressor applications. It is not simply an R&O oil developed for general purpose lubrication put into gas compressor service. Both synthetics and petroleum based oils have their place in gas compressor applications. Consult with Summit’s Gas Compressor Specialist to find out which product is right for your application.


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.


ISO 14001

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.
