We’ve got the Right Compressor Fluid for You

Fluid Metrics’ compressor fluids are specifically formulated with your compressor’s design, operating environment and oil change practices in mind. So whether your compressors are oil-flooded rotary screws or oil-free centrifugals, and whether they operate in a cool, clean, dry environment, or a hot, humid, acid-gas environment, we’ve got the right oil for you.  We provide both standard “OEM grade” limited-life fluids and advanced “Performance grade” extended-life fluids along with our proprietary additive replenishing concentrate.  So whether you practice the OEMs’ time-based “preventative” oil changes, or more cost-effective and sustainable condition-based oil changes, we’ve got the right oil for you.  Let us help you match the best type of oil to provide the best performance and value for you and your compressors.

Fortunately, lubricant technologies have evolved and users today have much more advanced, extended-life “performance” fluids to choose from. Unlike the standard OEM fluids, today’s performance fluids are formulated for the user with no performance limitations, and utilizing a more robust additive system designed to deliver maximum protection and service life. Performance fluids are optimized for the users’ benefit, and when combined with “predictive” condition-based oil changes, are designed to minimize oil consumption, eliminate routine oil changes, reduce maintenance costs and minimize environmental impact.

At Fluid Metrics, we give compressor users the choice between yesterday’s standard and today’s performance fluids, and we help guide them towards the best possible solution given their compressors’ unique operating conditions and environment. For smaller compressor users, where OEM-grade compressor fluids and regular time-based oil changes may make sense, we offer our DuroLube series of standard compressor fluids. And, for larger compressor users, where extended-life performance fluids and condition-based oil changes are the best practice, we offer our PuroLube series of performance fluids. Either way, compressor users can be confident they have considered all their options and received the best possible advice before making the right choice.
