Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 was engineered for reciprocating, rotary screw, and vane air compressors. It offers superior oxidative and thermal stability. Champion Synthetic Blend Compressor Oil #6043 was formulated to deliver 4,000-6,000 hours of outstanding service, even in moderately severe operating environments. It is formulated to deliver 4,000-6,000 hours of oil service life at 100 degrees C discharge temperature.
The quality of the base stock oils and the choice of additives are critical for air compressor oil formulation. The high-performance you will benefit from through the use of Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 is directly a byproduct of our sincere dedication to building a superior lubricant. Air compressors typically must perform in severe operating conditions and choosing cheap low-cost lubricants can be catastrophic to the compressor.
It is imperative that the air compressor oil provides proper film strength and wear protection. These two aspects are critical to protect metal surfaces, reduce wear, and extend critical part life. Air compressors are susceptible to moisture buildup. Unfortunately, conventional air compressor oils are often lacking in even the most basic water separation/demulsification properties. The proprietary chemistry found in Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 far exceeds other comparable compressor oils found in the industry.
This compressor oil delivers outstanding protection against the presence of water and moisture. In every important operating area, Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 delivers the kind of service that is required.
Screw Compressor Lubrication
The inter-meshing rotors in a screw compressor never encounter metal-to-metal contact with each other. Due to the fact that compression is the main source of heat, the operating temperature of a screw compressor is usually lower than in vane air compressors. Due to these lower operating temperatures, the oil service life is typically longer. Depending on the manufacturer’s requirements or specifications, Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 is available in the three most popular viscosity grades for rotary screw compressors, ISO 32 (SAE 10), ISO 46 (SAE 15), and ISO 68 (SAE 20.)
Flooded Vane Compressor Lubrication
Flooded vane air compressors generate a tremendous amount of friction due to their high rotational speeds. These severe operating conditions are a huge challenge air compressor oils face due to the fact that they must withstand constant shearing action in extremely high temperatures. Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 utilizes an exclusive combination of base stock oils that include highly polar thermally stable pure synthetic base stock oils.
These synthetic base stock oils are manmade with a uniform molecular structure that helps in reducing friction. Blended with these synthetic 100% pure synthetic base stock oils are other unique base stock oils that work synergistically in helping to reduce wear and friction, plus controlling oxidation. Blended into this unique combination of base stock oils are the finest high-performance anti-oxidation additives that enhance the oil’s oxidative stability and high-temperature performance.
Flooded rotary vane air compressors typically utilize Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 ISO 32 (SAE 10), ISO 46 (SAE 15), and ISO 68 (SAE 20). As always, check your compressor’s owner’s manual for the proper viscosity grade.
Reciprocating Air Compressor Lubrication
Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 is also an excellent choice for reciprocating air compressors. Reciprocating equipment typically requires our ISO 68 (SAE 20) or ISO 100 (SAE 30) compressor oils. It is the air compressor oil of choice to be used in the crankcase and on the valve side of the compressor. If the temperatures reach very cold levels, consider our ISO 68 viscosity grade.
Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043, with a range of 4,000-6,000 hours of service, works hard at keeping the crankcase clean and maintaining efficient operation of the rings, valves, and cylinders.
It is critical that an air compressor oil does not retain any moisture and water that could be introduced into the system via any cooler leaks or condensation. If water is retained within the air compressor system, it could cause the characteristics of the oil to change and also cause rust, which could negatively impact the performance of the air compressor or even worse, cause damage.
Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 was engineered with outstanding water separating abilities. It offers outstanding demulsibility, which gives it extended service life of 4,000-6,000 hours. Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 offers a lubricant that has high film strength. This high film strength keeps metal surfaces from touching each other and helps to reduce friction and wear. This is critically important during starting and stopping periods.
The unique structure of our base stock combination allows this high film strength oil to not thin out during high loading situations. It is very important that foam be kept to an absolute minimum within the air compressor system. Foam acts like an insulator of heat. If there’s excessive foaming in the air compressor system, it would negatively impact air compressor performance and cause temperatures to rise unnecessarily. Champion Semi-Synthetic Compressor Oil #6043 utilizes heavy-duty high-performance anti-foam agents.
By minimizing and reducing the chance of foaming, you’re able to reduce temperatures, which has a positive effect on maximizing the performance of the air compressor oil. This air compressor fluid will deliver wear-reducing benefits for bearings and other moving parts of the air compressor.
