I have no idea what the generator is for, or what generator you're referring to. But the compressor is a Diesel 185cfm IR tow behind. Use will vary between 20 minutes and several hours at a time for Abrasive Blasting. My climate is Upstate NY. This unit had what looked like ATF in it from prev. owner. I put R&O 32 in it to test it out after repair and it works fine but not sure I should just run the R&O in it for longer use. The lowest cost synthetic compressor 'fluid' I can find is $250 for 5 gallons. I think I need about 3 gallons.What is the generator for? How big? How often will you be using it and for how long at a time? Whats your climate?
I hear you and appreciate your comments. I did not just step off the bus either....lol. The P66 looks good as well as a Shell product for a few dollars more. Thanks again.Before any boutique oil rep tries to sell you on their high end product, ask for verifiable ROI examples where you can talk to the actual user and you can truly understand their perspective on the savings over time. Don't fall for the 'case study' fliers that the salesmen use to justify their product. Talk to users, not salesmen.
There are many great solutions for you out there at very reasonable prices. I think a link to a good Phillips product has been already listed above.
What spec does the Manufacturer require. I see it is a IR unit now I'm curious if it specs SSR ultra.How important is it to use the very expensive synthetic oil in screw compressors instead of ATF or Hydraulic oil?
What is so special about the high priced oil that justifies it's cost and use in a portable diesel compressor?
I think it's a 1986 model. Here's what it says on the inside of the door panel:What spec does the Manufacturer require. I see it is a IR unit now I'm curious if it specs SSR ultra.
What do you think about Shell products? (In 32 weight not 46)I'm betting this would be fine for this unit.
Yes that product should work in the application. The tech sheet has more as a 46 than a 32What do you think about Shell products? (In 32 weight not 46)
