AMSOIL Compressor Oil
AMSOIL Compressor Oil is considered the best air compressor oil. AMSOIL is a long-life, premium compressor lubricant based on novel, proprietary technology. It incorporates the highest quality, thermally stable PAO synthetics fortified with premium non-detergent additives for maximum protection at high temperatures. It lasts up to 8,000 hours, effectively reducing maintenance and waste oil disposal costs. AMSOIL has low friction properties, resists viscosity increase from oxidation, and helps improve operating efficiency. AMSOIL contains anti-foam additives and, unlike some other compressor oils, is anti-wear fortified. Its good foam control reduces heat, oxidation, and wear.
AMSOIL Improves Compressor Efficiency
AMSOIL PC Series Oil has low friction properties, resists viscosity increase from oxidation, and helps improve operating efficiency.
Controls Foam and Reduces Wear
AMSOIL PC Series Oil contains anti-foam additives and, unlike some other compressor oils, is anti-wear fortified. Good foam control reduces heat, oxidation, and wear. High contact regions are protected against wear for increased compressor life and lower maintenance costs.
AMSOIL Compressor Oil Resists Water Contamination
Water from condensation builds up in compressors and can cause unwanted oil/water emulsions that lead to rust and corrosion. AMSOIL PC Series Oil is hydrolytically stable. It resists acid formation, readily separates from water, and is anti-rust fortified. Water can be easily drained for simplified disposal and increased oil life.
AMSOIL Resists Heat and Oxidation
AMSOIL PC Series Oil combines the inherent stability of premium synthetic base oils with specialized anti-oxidant additives to resist varnish, carbon, and acid formation. It is formulated to protect compressors better and last longer in service than petroleum oils, especially during hot operating conditions.
AMSOIL PC Series Oil is an ashless, high-flash-point formulation with very low carbon-forming tendencies that minimizes the incidence of ignition-promoting "hot spots." While PC Series Oil can provide improved fire safety, it cannot be considered non-flammable.
AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is formulated with premium synthetic ester technology. This high-quality, long-life fluid lasts several times longer in use than mineral-based oils. AMSOIL SIROCCO is fully formulated with non-detergent additives and is designed for use in rotary screw compressors and vacuum pumps. SIROCCO effectively protects against wear, oxidation, foam, and rust. Its inherent lubricity and good thermal conductivity allow it to reduce heat and energy consumption. AMSOIL SIROCCO increases operating efficiency, reducing energy and maintenance costs. AMSOIL SIROCCO maintains performance across a wide operating temperature range. Its low pour point, high viscosity index, and lack of paraffin (wax) make it an excellent all-season lubricant. At cold temperatures, equipment starts easier and the lubricant is quickly pumped to critical components, preventing lubricant starvation and excessive wear. SIROCCO also repels water to prevent damaging oil/water emulsions, allowing for longer lubricant life and ease of water removal from the reservoir.
