Efficient and trouble free lubrication of compressors and vacuum pumps is extremely important. This will result in correct lubrication of machinery in the production of food. Our foodmax Air range will provide your machines long life and operation without unnecessary delay.

Foodmax Air PAO

PAO based high performance food grade compressor lubricant


Foodmax Air PAO oils are food grade, non-toxic synthetic oils developed for all types of compressors used in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Foodmax Air PAO offers enhanced performance in extremely demanding applications and shows excellent results in protection against wear and readily separates from water and air hence the fluid’s ability to keep a lubricating film at all times even under the most challenging circumstances. Thanks to the latest available technology incorporating ester oil the fluid offers increased protection from internal wear and sludge formation whereas it will clean from the inside and dissolve any formation from pump components. This same technology provides better heat control and minimizes oxidization by keeping the fluid in a better condition offering a longer lifetime of the lubricant. Next to that Foodmax Air PAO possesses enhanced water separating ability to prevent from lubricant failure and increased oxidative stability into longer drain intervals and less tendency to lacquering.


Foodmax Air PAO is suitable for all types of compressors designed to operate in applications where ISO 46 and ISO 68 oil viscosities are used. Particularly suitable for use in rotary screw compressors. For optimum results, it is important to purge the system of the previous oil prior to recharging with Foodmax Air PAO.

Hypercomp 270

Synthetic lubricant for hyper compressors


Hypercomp 270 is a product based on polyglycol polymers specifically formulated for the lubrication of hyper-compressors in the production of low-density polyethylene also known as LDPE. The high film strength enhances fluid lifetime and equipment reliability in high pressure and high temperature LDPE production. Operators will see less need for maintenance and downtime, benefits to overall costs related to maintenance and replacing parts and helps in maintenance control and eases start-up operations. Hypercomp 270 is a very cost-effective lubricant and excellent choice for hyper compressors.
