- Oil Analysis provides Vital Information on Oil’s Physical & Chemical properties
- Enables Condition-based Oil Changes and Eliminates costly “preventative” time-based Oil Replacement
- Alerts Users to Hidden Problems with the Oil and Compressor internals Before they Occur
- Increases Compressor Reliability & Uptime
- Reduces Compressor Maintenance and Repair Costs
- Low-cost Separators, Filters & Coolers
Welcome to Fluid Metrics
A Different Kind of Compressor Company
It’s no secret the air compressor companies are in business to sell you as much oil, parts and services as possible. For decades, they’ve promoted outdated preventative maintenance, expensive maintenance agreements, and highly-conditional extended warrantees as parts of their three-pronged strategy designed to maximize their sales and profits by controlling…
- HOW you maintain your compressors
- HOW OFTEN you have to maintain them
- HOW MUCH oil and parts you have to consume & purchase
- WHO you have to purchase your OEM oil and parts from
- WHAT PRICE you have to pay for your OEM oil and parts, and ultimately…
- HOW MUCH YOU HAVE TO SPEND on your compressors’ maintenance
The compressor OEMs and distributors make the bulk of their profits (at your expense) on their aftermarket sales of expensive oils, parts and services. They have zero incentive to help their “customers” save time or money on their maintenance and are highly resistant to embracing today’s more advanced money-saving maintenance technologies and practices.
That’s where we come in. Founded in 2003 after more than 20 years in the compressor industry, Fluid Metrics has the inside knowledge and latest technologies the OEMs hoped would never see the light of day. Unlike other compressor companies, Fluid Metrics is in business for one reason only – to save our customers time and money on their compressors’ maintenance by applying the best available technologies and practices. Our advanced contaminant control and fluid conditioning technologies, combined with proactive, predictive, condition-based maintenance, are proven to dramatically increase compressor reliability, slash your oil and parts consumption, and save you time and money. Welcome to Fluid Metrics, a different kind of compressor company. We invite you browse and click to learn more, or give us a call and let us show you how we can help you… PURIFY PROTECT & SAVE!
The PuroLube PLUS Compressor Maintenance System is specifically designed for oil-injected rotary screw air
compressors to deliver the ultimate in protection, reliability and SAVINGS. Combining the best available contaminant control, fluid conditioning and proactive maintenance practices into one easy-to-use system, PuroLube PLUS targets and controls oil degradation, wear, corrosion and fouling – the root causes responsible for most compressor maintenance and repairs.
So instead of wasting valuable time and money by regularly replacing expensive compressor oils and other “consumables”, let PuroLube PLUS do the work for you by proactively maintaining your oil in like-new condition, and increasing protection, reliability and service life of expensive compressor oils, separators, bearings, coolers and more.
Let us show you a smarter, easier and better way to maintain your compressors.

What The Experts are Saying
Hugh King - Plant Engineer, Shaw Industries
“All Fluid Metrics’ COPs installed at our facility have proven to be extremely effective at extending the service
life of our compressor fluids and separators. This is the best new product to come our way in a very long
Paul Trimmer – Owner, Industrial Compressed Air & Vacuum
“In all my years of servicing air compressors I never thought I’d see such a dramatic improvement in
compressor maintenance. But after witnessing one of my longtime customers surpass 80,000 hours on his
compressor fluid and reviewing their normal oil analysis results, seeing is believing.”
Steve Tucker – Maintenance Manager, Syntec Industries
“Our rotary screw air compressors are critical to our plant’s operation, but we were spending a fortune on all
our compressors’ maintenance. Since we switched away from the service agreement provided by the local
distributor, our compressor maintenance costs have decreased by nearly 50%, while reliability and uptime
have increased. The team at Fluid Metrics really know their stuff.”
H. Robert Goltz, Ph. D. – Developmental Chemist Dow Chemical
RE: Ion exchange technology”…proven to be extremely effective at removing acids and extending the service
life of synthetic compressor lubricants. Dow fully endorses the use of this technology.”
Technical Support Engineer, World’s Largest Industrial Gas Supplier
“With a fleet of nearly 100 Sullair oil-flooded air compressors operating in remote, often unmanned
locations, compressor reliability is critical to providing a guaranteed supply of Nitrogen to our customers.”
Since discovering Fluid Metrics more than 10 years ago, our compressor reliability is up, our maintenance
costs are down, and our oil usage and disposal has plummeted.”
Facility Maintenance Manager Manufacturer of Bleach & Household Cleaners
“Given our compressors’ harsh environment and exposure to strong chemical vapors, we were lucky to get
3,000 hour life on the OEM’s compressor fluid and we were experiencing excessive downtime. After reaching
the end of our rope with our local distributor and still no solutions, we turned to Fluid Metrics for help and
haven’t looked back. Finally, a compressor company that is looking out for us. ”
Maintenance & Service - Compressed Air & Gas Institute
“Perceptive management teams recognize that they can no longer be competitive with outdated
maintenance practices. The methods, tools and quality of maintenance used in the past are no longer
adequate in a contemporary production environment. Good maintenance is a genuine value, especially as it
relates to bottom-line results.”
Particulate contamination is the #1 enemy of air compressors…a surefire way to destroy your investment. It
will reduce the life of the air end, the separator and the fluid, and will increase horsepower leading to
increased energy consumption.
Jim Fitch – Noria
Many user organizations falsely conclude that their machines are already fitted with the necessary
accessories and components that enable reliability to be achieved.
