Oil-lubricated compressors for commercial and industrial use

Oil-lubricated compressors are a common choice for many customers because of their reliability and long service life. They also offer the size and air capacity necessary for multiple users to power tools simultaneously onsite.  

One of the most widely used oil-lubricated compressors today is the screw compressor. It’s a positive displacement compressor that features a male and female rotor that move towards each other.

Lubricated compressors are highly efficient systems that can be installed alongside various accessories depending on your specific air system demands. They are utilized in various industries including energy, agriculture, construction, and manufacturing.

Frequently asked questions

Depending on use, oil in rotary screw compressors must be changed every 1000 to 2000 service hours. Air compressor oil degrades over time and must be replaced to ensure ideal viscosity.

The team at JHFOSTER can repair and service leading brands and types of compressed air equipment. We also specialize in new system designs and retrofit existing systems.
