All pneumatic tools require some oil in the air line to lubricate the inner moving parts and reduce the wear between them, cooling them and reducing friction. Percussion units (breakers, hammers) without oil cause strong wear on the piston and cylinder. Decades ago, compressors leaked so much oil that it was enough to lubricate hammers and breakers. But that does not happen anymore.
Breaker & Hammer Air-Oil is a fully synthetic lubricant with excellent lubricating, rust-preventing and de-icing properties, especially developed for TEX pneumatic breakers and hammers, as well as DIP and DOP pumps, for a smooth continuous operation under extreme conditions.
Anti-ice properties thanks to glycol additive with an outstanding operating temperature range from -30 to +50 ºC/-22 to 122 ºF
Absorbs water condensate and prevents freezing.
Specially suitable for silenced breakers and hammer where ice can build up in the silencer
Excellent to use in high humidity or low temperature climates
Absorbs condensed water, eliminating the need of a water separator: increases efficiency in the airline reducing pressure loses
Excellent lubricating properties for non-rotating air tools such as breaker and hammers
Readily biodegradable according to OECD301B
Pneumatic tools work in an open lubrication circuit. Oil ends on the environment, and contamination can result in hefty fines in many places.
