COMPRESSORS ARE VITALLY IMPORTANT IN MANY INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGIES. For example, compressors are used in nearly every industry including steel, automotive, petroleum, mining, food, gas production, and storage and energy conversion . The purpose of the compressor lubricant is to reduce friction and wear of the working parts of a compressor such as bearings, gears, and pistons; reduce internal leakage; and if the oil is compressed in the compression zone, to provide heat transfer to reduce the temperature of the gas being compressed . In addition, a properly formulated compressor should provide corrosion protection and be sufficiently stable to minimize the potential for deposit formation on hot surfaces within the system. .
