Unplanned downtime is expensive. Governmental and social penalties for flaring gas or polluting the environment are increasing. Lead times for spare parts and new equipment are at the mercy of the overextended supply chain.
With plants, sales offices and distributors around the world, Summit personnel work with gas compressor OEMs, packagers, operators and end users in various industries to solve compressor lubrication-related issues.
The days of simply using standard gas engine oil or ‘low tech’ compounded cylinder oil are just about over. Summit’s specialty lubricants succeed where conventional lubricants fail. Our customers have discovered that using specialty lubricants, backed by experience and technical expertise, result in significant decreases in lubricant-related operating and maintenance costs.
Each gas compressor application has its own unique set of operating parameters and issues. Summit offers a variety of lubricant base stocks to solve these issues. The lubricant selection process is critical for increased productivity and minimal downtime. Summit provides lubricants for each of the following applications: Refinery; CO2 Injection; EOR (Enhances Oil Recovery); Fertilizer; Chemical plant; Landfill; Wellhead; Offshore; Fuel gas; Digester gas; Reinjection; Hydrogenation; Vapor Recovery Units (VRU); Membrane separation; BioGas; CNG; Fire flood; Air drilling issues.
