Air Tool Oil is a very high quality airline oil has a naturally low viscosity. The low viscosity is intended for the lubrication of pneumatic tools, valves and associated equipment. This oil is blended with inhibitors to minimize thermal degradation and foaming, and protect against corrosion and deposit formation. The oil is made to ensure rapid formation of a mist for the lubrication of downstream pneumatic equipment.
Air Tool Oil Advice
Water and debris buildup are by far the biggest threats to your prized air impact wrench and other air tools. The common misconception is that if you regularly drain the air tank in your compressor, you are protecting your air tool from water damage. This only prevents rust in the tank.
Condensation in the air line and water in your impact wrench can have terrible effects on the performance and life of the tool. The good news is that it doesn’t take much time or effort to keep your impact wrench lubricated.
The motor in your air tool has machine polished surfaces. Water, dirt, rust and other contaminants quickly destroys these surfaces causing premature wear to your motor, reducing performance and the overall life of your air tool. Rye Oil Ltd recommends draining and purging your entire air system from the compressor to the tools weekly, as the first step to address wear and tear on your tool.
Another easy solution is to never connect a worn or dirty hose coupler to your tool. Connecting couplers gummed up with brake-dust, dirt or saw-dust is the easiest way to transfer contaminants into your motor. An air-hose reel suspended from your ceiling will keep your hose and couplers off the floor and out of muck.
