What is the difference between automotive oil and compressor oil?
Automotive oils contain detergents and dispersants to deal with blow-by, as well as EP additives. These are ash containing and contribute to valve deposits in reciprocating air compressors. In screw compressors these additive cause emulsification with water.
Reciprocating compressors really benefit from the clean operation of Teresstic ISO compressor oils.
