HI;I AM ALAMOOT AND I AM A MECHANICAL ENG. THAT HAS BEEN WORKING WITH COMPS FOR 12 YEARS.I CAN SAY THAT EACH BRAND OF COMPRESSOR THAT HAS BEEN MANUFACTURED BY ONE COMPANY HAS ITS OWN OIL(MOSTLY THEY ARE BASED HYDRAULIC OILS,ANTI-COMPRESSED WITH SOME SPECIAL ADDITIVES THAT EACH BRAND PRODUCES FOR ITSELF. THIS IS DUE TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MATERIAL USED IN THE SCREWS OR ..... INSIDE MATERIAL OF THE COMPRESSOR.
SO EASILY GO THREW THE MANUAL AND FIND THE RECOMENDED BRAND FOR THIS COMP.
YOURS FRIENDLY

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.

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.

Type of oil


Air compressor pumps can use different grades of oil depending on weather conditions and usage, however do not use engine oil. Some Ingersol Rand pumps use a synthetic oil available through WWGrainger on the web. (generally not model specific) If this pump is lightly used you can use the less expensive compressor oil sold at Lowes lumber made by Campbel Hausfeld. It sells for less than $3.00 a bottle. Generally speaking, under normal weather conditions and light duty use, do not worry about the weight of the oil; just make sure that it stays clean and at the right level. If your compressor is running hot, it may be due to other problems like the check valve, head gaskets leaking between cylinders or chambers or high usage. If, however you just want the best oil for your compressor, use the synthetic. It is usually colored blue or green. This oil is special formulation to prevent breakdown in high heat and will not allow carbon for form on parts or inside of the hoses. enjoy
