PLease contact IR http://www.irtools.com/serviceandsupport/techpubs.aspx

and direct this question to them. You do not want to make a mistake here as it will cost you a compressor. I would only accept what IR says is acceptable

good luck

Craftsman service manuals


I am assuming your enquiry is about the type of lube oil used in the pump section of the compressor. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the compressor. In any case craftsman suggests all oil lubed compressors use synthetic non-detergent compressor oil.

Something like this would be required.

WILL T21 SELECT OIL WORK IN A MODEL 2475


The solution was easier than I expected. Ingersoll Rand "Select" oil is a synthetic oil recommended by Ingersoll as better than mineral oil. T30 (mdl 2475) and T21 are different styles of compressors. So, yes "select" oil can be used in the Model 2475 compressor.

Model 2545 compressor getting toomuch carbon deposit in side the cylinder


You can try switching to a full synthetic compressor oil to alleviate the problem.

Carbon is caused by the over heating of oil. Your problem is most likely an undersized compressor, or worn valves and piston rings.
Regardless of the problem synthetic compressor oil will help.

Hope that helps,

WHAT TYPE OF OIL CAN I USE IN MY TYPE 30 COMPRESSOR


I am sure Ingersoll Rand would like you to use there all season select synthetic oil, or you can use a good quality R+O 100 oil, also known as SAE30 non detergent. do not use cheap oil for gas engines,,, buy a good name brand from a regular oil distributor, and specify yo are using it for an air compressor. and most manufactures will recommend you change it every 3 months.

I have a Ingersoll Rand P185 WJD air compressor and I need to know the type and quantity of oil to use.


Do not use 30 wt oil. It will wreak the oil/air seperator filter. Use Ingersoll Rand Pro-Tec fluid. It will hold approx 3 gallons.

My rotary screw air compressor model SSREP100H


It's just too hot. Blow out the radiator weekly. There is an oil temp switch that might need replaced but the radiator is the most common problem with screw compressors. You can check the settings in the control panel, where you turn it on and off. It should be set for a high temp of 185°.
