Prevent varnish and sludge from threatening your Air Compressor with FG Elite Series

June 09, 2021

Air compressors are increasingly susceptible to failure as varnish and rust develop. An excess of sludge or debris increases the strain on the overall system. Eventually, the build-up becomes too much and your compressor stops working all together - costing you money in downtime and repairs. 

Summit has the right lubricants to help you avoid costly buildup in your air compressor: FG Elite Series. The FG Elite series is a food-grade solution for rotary, screw, vane and reciprocating air compressors. Made with 100% multi-synthetic base oils and performance additives, the FG Series offers the latest technology. You’ll benefit from:

  • Superior protection against rust, wear and corrosion
  • Increased solvency to reduce deposit and sludge formation
  • Extended lubricant life
  • Ensured food safety (manufactured in a dedicated ISO 21469 certified facility)

Prior to the technology in Summit’s FG Elite Series, oil life was limited to 1,500-2,000 hours - meaning draining your system four times a year. With the FG Elite Series, oil life is extended to 8,000-10,000 hours with a drain interval of only once a year. You can capture a potential cost savings of up to 85%. 

Summit’s FG Elite Series is the right choice no matter what stage of the food- service industry your operation supplies. It will keep your air compressors running year-round and varnish-free. With six different viscosities to choose from, there is a lubricant that is well suited for you.
