Genuine Lubricants

JHF provides genuine air compressor lubricants that maintain or extend the life of your warranty specific for our leading manufacturers and their brands of air compressors and vacuum pumps.lubricants

By using only genuine lubricants, you can be assured your consumables are manufactured to the same quality standards as the brand of compressor. They are designed to keep your compressor or vacuum pump running at peak performance and have been proven to provide the best protection of your investment. Maintain of extend the life of your warranty by using only genuine lubricants.

At JHF we provide genuine lubricants for Quincy Compressors, Gardner Denver, I/R (Cameron) Centrifugal and CompAir to name a few. In addition to genuine lubricants, John Henry Foster also has a vast inventory of air compressor units, parts and accessories for most brands of compressed air equipment in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin and also provides maintenance and service on most brands and parts of compressed air equipment.

Aftermarket Lubricants

Aftermarket lubricants are specially formulated and manufactured to improve compressor efficiency and reliability, and are compatible with all types and brands of compressors. Aftermarket lubricants and air compressor parts are lab and field tested in thousands of compressed air systems with millions of hours of successful operation.

Proper fluids and air compressor parts are crucial in maintaining the performance and efficiency of your air compressor. Without the correct fluids, parts and regular maintenance, your compressor can lose life expectancy. We, at John Henry Foster, want to provide you with the tools and information necessary to ensure your air compressors are getting the attention they need to perform at full capacity.
