You might get away with redistributing the lube that's in there. It only needs a greasy film. If not, I would shy away from petroleum based lubes. I don't know how low the threshold is, but compressed oxygen + heat + petro lubes = kaBOOM. If you've ever dripped oil into a BB gun to get more oomph, you have an idea of the potential danger. Typical bicycle pressures may be safe, but pumps can generate a bit of heat. To be safe, I would check on silicon based air compressor lubes.
