Air Compressor Oil

Making sure you use the correct oil in your air compressor is very important to ensure smooth running and long life of your compressed air equipment.

The Motivair range of compressor oils have been specially formulated to suit a wide selection compressors including piston, vane and rotary screw compressors. Motivair oil is formulated to the highest standards and is also available in food grade variants.  These high performing oils are available in 1 litre, 5 litre and 20 litre bottles.

Each of the Motivair oils has been designed to make sure your compressed air equipment runs at its best performance and they have the following benefits.

  • Suitable for all brands, types and ages of compressor including piston, vane and screw compressors
  • 2000hr, 4000hr and food grade oil variants
  • 1ltr, 5ltr and 20ltr sizes 
  • Cooling properties to reduce heat generated in the compression process
  • Seals and aids in efficient compression
  • Ensures internal friction is minimised and optimised bearing life
  • Anti-wear additives that reduce mechanical abrasions
  • Low foaming properties at load reversal
  • Anti-corrosion additives that inhibit corrosion during idle periods
  • Compatible with all compressor internal materials and downstream tools
  • Optimised separation characteristics

We can also supply alternative brands of oil, speak to a member of our team today on 0845 009 6161


The Motivair lubricant is an ash-less system free of metal based additives, it has optimised separation characteristics in all types of separator systems. 

Environmental Condensate

Environmental condendate is a by-product of oil injected air  compression. It is an emulsion of oil and water. Legislation demands that condensate emulsion must be separated prior to disposal. Motivair lubricant  is engineered to separate quickly and easily and therefore works in harmony with the industry standard oil/water separator.

Compression Sealing

The lubricant is injected to seal and aid efficient compression. The Motivair lubricant is an ISO viscosity refined base oilformulated to optimise this vital process.


The heat generated in the compression process along with frictional force should be dissipated. The lubricant must therefore withstand extremes of temperature dissipating the heat via the cooler whilst continuing to perform to
its design specification throughout its service life.


The formulated Motivair lubricant ensures that internal friction is minimised thus optimising the life of the axial and radial bearings and has superior anti-wear additives that dramatically reduce mechanical abrasion even
under the most arduous operational conditions.

Compatibility Assured

Motivair compressor lubricant is engineered to BS, DIN and ISO standards. The lubricant is compatible with all the compressors internal materials downstream tools lubricants and polycarbonate bowls.

Health & Safety

Motivair lubricant should be handled according to standards of industrial hygiene. Safety Data Sheets are available on request.

Low Foam

The foam effect is a factor in all compressors at load reversal. Motivair lubricant minimises this effect in two ways, mechanically through separation and also its outstanding low foam properties.


Motivair’s anti-corrosion additives inhibit internal corrosion that could appear on internal surfaces during idle periods.
