TM Series

TM Series

Summit TM Series is a synthetic-blend compressor oil formulated from highly refined petroleum base stocks and the unique additive Syntholate. The refining process includes catalytic hydrogenation to remove impurities, M.E.K. solvent dewaxing to provide low pour points and vacuum distillation to assure low vapor pressure. The addition of Syntholate inhibits the formation of varnish and carbon and provides superior thermal and oxidative stability. The Summit TM Series with Syntholate pays for itself with the first lubricant change.

Utilizing the superior petroleum base stocks fortified with Syntholate extends the life of the Summit TM Series compared to that of conventional mineral oils and provides the following money saving benefits: (1)Reduced lubricant consumption - Extended drain intervals and lower vapor pressures reduce lubricant consumption; (2) Reduced maintenance -Syntholate reduces carbon and varnish formation thus extending valve life and the time interval between overhauls; (3)  Eliminates recompression- Syntholate keeps the valves clean and eliminates the primary cause of recompression; (4) Reduced power consumption - Elimination of recompression and reduced coefficient of friction results in less power consumption per unit of compression; (5) Improved safety - Higher flash points provide a greater margin of safety in air compression.

Recommended uses

Summit TM Series is recommended in portable air compressors with up to 2,000 hours of usage per year, rotary screw, rotary vane compressors, vacuum pumps and hydraulic systems. Summit TM Series products are compatible with most commonly used seal materials.

NSF ISO 21469

ISO 21469 specifies hygiene requirements for the formulation, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants, which may come into contact with products during manufacturing or processing. The international standard applies to lubricants intended for use in food production, as well as cosmetic, pharmaceutical and animal feed industries. NSF ISO 21469 Certification by an independent, third party provides Summit with a means to obtain international acceptance for their products.
