Schaeffer's #158 Moly Pure Synthetic Compressor Oil
Moly Pure Synthetic is blended from the highest quality hydro-finished polyalphaolefin (PAO) synthetic base fluids available. These PAO base fluids provide Moly Pure Synthetic Compressor Oil with the following advantages:
- Excellent Resistance To Thermal Degradation - Carbon, varnish and lacquer deposits due to high temperature operation are virtually eliminated.
- Superior Oxidative Stability - Any oil, as it is increasingly exposed to high temperature operation, undergoes the process of oxidation. This results in the oil's thickening and build-up of acidic components. Because of the PAO's uniform molecular structure, the process of oxidation is greatly reduced.
- Extended Drain Intervals - Because of the PAO's excellent resistance to thermal degradation and oxidation, Moly Pure Synthetic Compressor Oil's service life is extended up to eight (8) times the normal service life of the conventional compressor oils.
- Low Volatility - The low volatility of the PAO's results in lower makeup requirements due to evaporation loss.
- Less Oil Carry Over - Due to its low volatility, there are fewer problems with the oil getting into air tools, instruments or even the production process. It also means there is less oil to remove in the air/oil separators and fewer air filter changes.
- High Viscosity Index - This results in a minimum change in viscosity with temperature. The adequate viscosity for proper bearing lubrication is provided regardless of temperature change.
- Excellent Cold Temperature Starting and Pumpability.
- Fire And Explosion Possibilities Are Greatly Reduced - This is due to not only the PAO's extremely low carbon forming tendencies, but also to their relatively high flash, fire and auto ignition points.
- Greater Hydrolytic Stability And Demulsibility Characteristics - Since PAO's are non-polar, they absorb less water under high humidity conditions. They also separate condensed water much faster and more completely, thus resulting in the water being removed easily from the system. These properties result in extended bearing life, anti-wear protection and improved rust and corrosion protection.
- Excellent Operating Temperature Reduction - PAO's have better specific heat valves (less available heat is absorbed) and better thermal conductivity that conventional air compressor oils. These combined properties help to reduce operating temperatures.
- Compatibility With All Types Of Seals And Coatings.
- Excellent Miscibility and Low Solubility with Refrigerant Gases.
Blended into these polyalphaolefin base fluids and this highly specialized additive package is a proven frictional modifier, Micron Moly®. Micron Moly® is a liquid soluble type of moly that plates itself to the sliding and rubbing parts of the compressor. This plating action reduces friction between the moving parts, thus eliminating damaging frictional wear. This in turn also helps to reduce operating temperatures.
Moly Pure Synthetic Compressor Oil with its unique blend of polyalphaolefin base fluids, highly specialized additive package and Micron Moly® results in improved compressor efficiency. This improved compressor efficiency not only results in less downtime, reduced labor and material cost, but also in reduced energy consumption. This results in savings which could possibly represent many thousands of dollars each year per compressor.
