Warning Do not use a malfunctioning compressor to pump divers breathing air or charge divers air storage flasks as this may result in contamination of the divers air supply

Lubricants used in diver's air compressors shall conform to MIL-L-17331 (2190 TEP) for normal operations, or MIL-H-17672 (2135TH) for cold weather operations. Where the compressor manufacturer specifically recommends the use of a synthetic base oil in their compressor for production of breathing air, that manufacturer recommended synthetic base oil may be used in lieu of MIL-L-17331 or MIL-H-17672 oil. Oil shall be changed out on compressors in strict accordance with the PMS requirements applicable to that compressor.
