Customer Benefits

  • Robust formulation promotes extended lubricant service life and equipment uptime 
  • Formulated to contribute to compressor performance and protection, helping reduce maintenance and downtime 
  • Aids reliable performance in severe, extreme pressure operations, promoting extended compressor service life


  • Extended lubricant service life 
  • Reduced maintenance and downtime 
  • Severe, extreme pressure protection


Compressor Oil EP VDL are recommended for stationary and portable compressors, including compressors with oil lubricated pressure space, such as single and multistage reciprocating compressors or single and multistage centrifugal compressors 

The EP VDL 32 and EP VDL 46 grades are recommended primarily for use in oil-flooded screw compressors as well as centrifugal compressors. At extremely high compression pressures (approximately 1000 bar), such as in multistage reciprocating compressors, the higher viscosity grades may be used. However, particular care should be observed regarding the prescribed viscosity specification, as required by the compressor manufacturer 

Compressor Oil EP can be used in air or inert gas reciprocating compressors

Always confirm that the product selected is consistent with the original equipment manufacturer’s recommendation for the equipment operating conditions and customer’s maintenance practices.
