Oil Lubricated Air Compressors

CompAir’s L Series is one of the most reliable and cost-effective ranges of rotary screw compressors in the industry. These high-quality oil-lubricated compressors are ideal for use in industrial applications such as manufacturing, aerospace and automotive, electronic, food and beverage, or medical and pharmaceutical. The range incorporates both fixed and regulated speed (RS) models (also known as variable speed), from 2.2kW to 250kW, and can be sized depending on the output required.

They are highly regarded for their energy efficiency, with the regulated speed models offering the ability to precisely match power consumption with the varying air demand found in most plant air systems, achieving energy savings of up to 25%. If your application has a constant demand, a fixed-speed compressor may offer better results and is extremely energy efficient when operating at 100%. Both can deliver significant cost savings for your business.

DH Series Oilless Air Compressors

For applications that need to have 100% oilless operation, CompAir’s DH Series air compressors offer customers a highly efficient, reliable and clean air supply. Coupled with reduced maintenance costs, the DH Series is an excellent cost-effective solution for customers where air purity is critical.

Many industries, such as Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Electronics and Food and Beverage, use compressed air to drive production lines. This air can often come into contact with the product being created, so even the tiniest drop of oil could cause product spoilage. Oil-free compressed air is therefore vital as a safe and clean energy source.

The water-injected rotary screw DH Series from CompAir provides customers a completely risk-free operation, eliminating the risk of contamination, and guaranteeing 100% air purity.  Ownership costs are reduced as replacement oil, oil separators, filtration equipment and condensate treatment are not required.

Benefits of the DH Series Oilless Air Compressors

  • Absolutely no oil anywhere in the compressor
  • Certified ISO 8573-1 Class Zero (2010) and silicone free
  • No oil and fewer moving parts mean minimal maintenance
  • Unique design offers lower speeds and lower operating temperatures, resulting in high-efficiency performance
  • Fewer moving parts lead to less vibration and noise pollution

CompAir Compressor FAQs


A lubricated air compressor is designed and built to use a lubricating oil which keeps the piston (or rotary element) in the compressor running smoothly, limiting the chances of damaging your machine. The lubricant also has the major benefit of helping to dissipate heat generated in the compression process and maintain air compression energy efficiency.

The L-Series from CompAir (also known as an oil-lubricated air compressor) is known across the industry for quality and reliability to achieve optimum performance and efficiency.
