How to change the compressor oil and engine oil in a Rotair compressor.
Keep in mind that your compressor uses both compressor oil and the engine oil, and both will have to be changed. Always refer to the manufacturer's recommendations for specific details.
Oil and filter replacement schedules for the 185CFM, 300CFM, and 425CFM Rotair compressors are the same. Below is a quick reference for the maintenance schedule, but please refer to your user manual for complete instructions and more details.
Change oil after the first 50 hours, and then every 500 hours after that.
Oil change intervals must never exceed 1,500 hours of work
Compressor oil should be AW-46 or ISO-46 Hydraulic Oil (AW = All Weather)
Do not use engine oil! Compressor oil and engine oil are not interchangeable.
Take into consideration the working conditions in which the machine operates (dusty conditions, very high temperature, etc can require more frequent oil changes)
