Hydrovane Fluidforce 2000 Hour/ vawo2000-5gt
Hydrovane Fluidforce 2000 Hour/ vawo2000-5gt designed as a 2000 Hour Fluidforce Lubricant made specifically for Hydrovane Air Compressors.
VAWO2000-5GT Compair FluidForce oil is a hydraulic fluid used for lubricating reciprocating air compressors. As such, it does not have running hours in the same way that a mechanical device such as an engine or motor would.
However, the fluid is typically used in air compressors that have recommended maintenance schedules based on operating hours. These schedules typically include regular oil changes, filter replacements, and other maintenance tasks to ensure the compressor continues to function properly.
The specific maintenance schedule for an air compressor can vary depending on the manufacturer, model, and operating conditions. In general, air compressors used in industrial settings can have maintenance schedules ranging from several hundred to several thousand operating hours.
It’s worth noting that regular maintenance and proper use of the correct hydraulic fluid, such as VAWO2000-5GT Compair FluidForce oil, can help to extend the lifespan of the compressor and reduce maintenance costs over time.
The fluid has a viscosity of ISO VG 100, which means it has a kinematic viscosity of 100 centistokes at 40 degrees Celsius. This viscosity is specifically formulated to provide optimal lubrication and cooling to the internal components of reciprocating air compressors.
VAWO2000-5GT FluidForce has a flash point of 220 degrees Celsius (428 degrees Fahrenheit), which is the temperature at which the fluid can ignite when exposed to a flame or spark. This high flash point helps to ensure the safety and stability of the fluid during use.
The fluid has a pour point of -15 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit). At this temperature the fluid stops flowing due to cold temperatures. This low pour point allows the fluid to maintain its lubricating properties even in cold environments. This makes it suitable for use in a wide range of industrial settings.
The fluid is a clear, light yellow colour. This colour is the result of the specific additives and base oils used in the formulation of the fluid. This does not have any significant impact on its performance or properties.
CompAir VAWO2000 5GT is compatible with most common seal materials and metals used in reciprocating air compressors. This compatibility ensures that the fluid can be safely used in a variety of different types of compressors, without causing damage or degradation.
The fluid meets the requirements of DIN 51506 VD-L and ISO 6743-3A L-DAA specifications for air compressor oils. These standards specify the performance and quality requirements for hydraulic fluids used in air compressors. CompAir VAWO2000-5GT has been tested and certified to meet these standards.
Overall, VAWO2000-5GT Compair FluidForce oil is a high-quality hydraulic fluid that is specifically designed for use in reciprocating air compressors. Its unique formulation provides optimal lubrication and cooling to the internal components of the compressor. This ensures safety and stability during use. With its high-quality standards and compatibility with a wide range of materials, it is a reliable choice for industrial applications.

Utilising the right kind of oil in your air compressor will have numerous advantages for equipment. It can effectively reduce energy consumption, decrease friction and wear between different motor parts and maximise the lifespan of the compressor.
What Kind of Oil Should I Use for My Air Compressor?
Many people question what oil to use in their air compressor, often wondering whether there’s a better option available. The best oil to use in an air compressor will often depend on the manufacturer’s recommendations. Typically, your compressor guidelines will specify which oil would work best to ensure peak performance. The manufacturer’s recommendations should also tell you if synthetic blends will work for a specific air compressor.
You want to abide by the compressor manufacturer’s warranty guidelines. Non-specified oil substitutes like motor oil could void the warranty and eliminate any added perks. The manufacturer can trust compressor oil to be formulated specifically for air compressors. The same cannot be said of other oil types, even if they are technically a viable replacement. Whether standard, synthetic or a substitute, the oil you use must be non-detergent.
