Your requirements – our solution


Klüber Summit FG Elite 46 is a compressoir oil especially developed for the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. It clearly outperforms conventional food-grade compressor oils. Its high-quality base oils and special additive package tuned to the requirements of air compressors offer excellent oxidation stability. Due to the innovative product concept, the formation of oil-related residues is reduced and and oxidative deposits or sludge build-up minimised. These benefits enable longer oil change intervals and service life of oil
filters and separators.

The product is miscible with mineral oils and other synthetic hydrocarbon oils. It is registered as NSF H1 and therefore complies with FDA 21 CFR 178.3570. Klüber Summit FG Elite 46 was developed for incidental contact with products and packaging materials in the food-processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical or animal feed industries. The use of Klüber Summit FG Elite 46 can contribute to increased reliability of your production processes. Nevertheless it is recommended to conduct an additional risk analysis, e.g. HACCP.



Klüber Summit FG Elite 46 can be used for oil-injected screwtype compressors in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries.


Application notes


When selecting the oil viscosity for air compressors, please observe the manufacturers’ instructions. Notes on switching from mineral to synthetic oils:

When switching a used compressor to Klüber Summit FG Elite 46, drain old oil from whole circuit of compressor while still warm. We also recommend changing all oil filters and separators. Then refill the compressor with Klüber Summit FG Elite 46. When switching from mineral oil to the synthetic Klüber Summit FG Elite 46 oil, please bear in mind that the compressor may contain oxidation residues in the form of blackened or contaminated oil. Typical symptoms are black discolouration or impurities in the previously used oil. As such residues can affect the service life of the fresh Klüber Summit FG Elite 46, the compressor should be cleaned using the Klüber Summit
Varnasolv conditioner.

After changing over to Klüber Summit FG Elite 46, we recommend determining the oil change interval through an oil analysis or the Klüber Summit TAN Kit after approx. 500 to 1,000 operating hours.
For further information please turn to your contact person at Klüber Lubrication or see the product information leaflet on Klüber Summit Varnasolv.
*The indicated oil change intervals are guide values which are based on practical experience. They depend on the intended use, the application method and the technical condition of the compressor. Lubricants change their condition depending on the mechano-dynamical loads, pressures and temperatures and the mixing with oil residues or build-ups of the previous oils fills. Such changes in product properties may have an effect on the oil change intervals and the function of components.
