Like any engine, air compressors need lubricant to keep themselves running at peak efficiency. Rotary screw air compressors in particular, a vital part of countless businesses and factory’s daily operations, need lubrication to prevent costly breakdowns, downtime, and poor production levels.

For that reason, CompressAir offers Sullube – Sullair’s custom lubricant that serves as the “lifeblood” of a compressor. A flush of Sullube provides 10,000 hours of protection, resisting sludge, heat, and the biggest enemy of compressors, varnish.

“An oil-flooded rotary screw compressor relies on Sullube to not only lubricate the system, but also to ‘seal’ the helical rotor tolerance,” said Brad Wisenbaugh, senior service technician for CompressAir. “It also maintains system temperature.”

When performing maintenance and repairs, Sullube is the product of choice for CompressAir’s technicians.

“We use Sullube out in the field on a majority of makes and models,” Wisenbaugh said. ‘Statistics show that it has less than one part per million carryover, meaning less top off fluid is needed and, in the end, that means saving money for our customers on maintenance costs.”

Sullair’s data shows that Sullube is used in over 50,000 compressors around the world. A large part of its popularity is because its main ingredient, a material called polyglycol, offers the best carryover, a high flash point (meaning high reliability and safety), and the best compatibility among alternative ingredients.

CompressAir’s technicians are able to perform a Sullube flush conversion on your compressor. This process dissolves varnish, reduces the machine’s energy demand, improves its cooling, and extends its operating life.

“We are just a phone call away,” said Wisenbaugh. “The CompressAir Service Department is equipped with very talented and skilled individuals who are eager and willing to serve! We are always here to assist in any possible way we can.”

Make sure that your rotary screw compressor is protected today – breakdowns can lead to hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost production. Visit or call 219-369-4880 to learn more.
