Ultra FG is a custom-compounded compressor fluid specifically formulated for OEM
use only on rotary screw air compressors. Critical performance features include low
fluid volatility, enhanced water demulsibility, superior hydrolytic stability, improved
sealing effect, reduced friction, enhanced wear protection and superior fluid dispersing
characteristics to eliminate “sludging” and deposit-forming tendencies.

Ultra FG is fully compliant with 21 CFR 178.3570 and meets the requirements of
USDA/NSF H1 (Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact).


Ultra FG is available in three different size packages:
5 liters (1.2 gallons)
20 liters (5.3 gallons)
208 liters (55 gallons)

Ultra FG is intended to be used in rotary screw air compressor applications requiring
food-grade lubricant.

Ultra FG is compounded with a blend of next-generation, 100% food-grade synthetic
base oils and advanced additive technologies to provide superior performance over
competitive lubricating oils. This custom formulation, based on extensive research
and development, provides Ultra FG with an optimized combination of anti-wear agents,
rust inhibitors, and antioxidants that demonstrates a synergistic performance advantage
over traditional air compressor fluids.

Performance Features
 Outstanding anti-wear protection for pump protection
 Resists the formation of foam, sludge, varnish and corrosive acids
 Superior rust and oxidation stability for long, trouble-free life
 Hydrolytically stable and readily separates from water
 Superior dispersing characteristics for extending drain Intervals


The food-grade alkylated synthetic base fluid utilized in Ultra FG provides several
benefits over conventional synthetic base fluids such as polyalphaolefins (PAOs) and
esters. While PAOs handle heat and oxidation better than mineral oil, they are

essentially synthesized paraffinic oils in performance and are subject to abrasive

carbonization and depositing in equipment components.

Additionally, they provide neither dispersing characteristics nor solvency to the

lubricant to prevent agglomeration (depositing) of ingested materials. Esters, while
possessing solvency and dispersing characteristics which are beneficial in the
application, suffer from hydrolytic instabilities. Water entrained in the lubricant can
cause the ester to hydrolyze, breaking down the ester into component products such
as acids and alcohols which can varnish components and lead to premature failure.

The synthetic alkylated naphthalenes used in Ultra FG provide solvency and

dispersing characteristics similar to esters but do not suffer from hydrolytic instability.
Additionally, they do not form abrasive deposits such as those formed by mineral oils
and PAOs.

Ultra FG is specifically formulated to provide enhanced wear protection. Studies have
shown that the additive chemistry in Ultra FG significantly reduces wear over
conventional oils, dramatically increasing component life.


Ultra FG outperforms both synthetic and conventional fluids in thermal and oxidative
stability, as demonstrated by the Rotating Pressure Vessel Oxidation Test (ASTM D
2272). This enhanced performance translates into longer drain intervals, trouble-free
operation and increased resistance to varnishing.


Ultra FG readily separates from water and air, eliminating emulsions that inhibit the oil’s
ability to lubricate, decreasing the potential for forming deposits, and improving
efficiency. Rapid water separation ensures easy drainage from the sump, reducing the
potential for rust and corrosion of the system components.


 USDA/NSF H-1 Compliant
 Kosher and Parve Certified
 Compliant with FDA 21 CFR 178.3570 “Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact”
