The reason for the use of non-detergent oils is that they are harsh on the seals and rings of the compressor. Causing possible damage to them. I dont know how is it beeing so dificult to you to buy fixed grade non dtergent oil like SAE30 or SAE40 since I'm in Europe and all our fixed grade oil(the ones that are usualy used for air compressors) are made in USA and from USA brands.
I have a few can in the garage, I will check the brand and I will tell you if its any help.
Best regards,
