Platinum is a high performance synthetic air compressor oil manufactured for Best-Aire, by Summit Industrial Products. Platinum is formulated specifically to outperform other synthetic rotary compressor lubricants on the market.
High temperatures accelerate the oxidation process. In combination with high discharge pressures, the oil begins to form varnish and sludge as the compressor struggles to operate under these conditions. The end result is lost productivity and short oil drain intervals.
Platinum employs a unique base stock that allows improvements in oxidation resistance and compressor cleanliness. It eliminates varnish, sludge and carbon deposits better than conventional synthetic base stocks.
Platinum has met the challenge under actual field conditions with over 12,000 hours of service and beyond in high temperature applications. It has also become the preferred choice for many oil-flooded rotary screw air compressors operating under more conventional ranges. Drain intervals of 12,000 hours or more can reasonably be expected under normal operating conditions.
In all circumstances, any extension of oil drain intervals should rely on a competent oil analysis service as part of a comprehensive preventative maintenance program.
