AMSOIL Hydraulic Oil
AMSOIL Hydraulic Oil protects hard-working hydraulic systems from the stress of high-pressure, high-load, and heavy-duty operations. AMSOIL remains fluid in cold temperatures for immediate cold-weather flow.
AMSOIL synthetic base oils resist thermal and oxidative breakdown, reducing varnish deposits. The very high viscosity indices, low pour points, and lack of paraffin (wax) make these good all-season lubricants well-suited for high and low-temperature extremes. At high temperatures and pressures, AMSOIL AW Series Oils provide a good lubricating film and protect components against wear. During cold-temperature operation, equipment starts easier and the need for preheating with sump heaters is reduced. The AW Series base oils also readily separate from water, preventing oil/water emulsions that inhibit lubrication and allowing for longer lubricant life and easier water drainage from the sump.
Synthetic hydraulic oil is formulated with special anti-wear additives and rust inhibitors to provide optimum protection for expensive equipment. Some hydraulic applications require the use of highly biodegradable hydraulic oil due to government regulations or environmental concerns.
Vegetable-based biodegradable oils, however, often provide good biodegradability but compromise performance in other areas. We designed AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil to offer the best of both worlds. Use AMSOIL Biodegradable Synthetic Hydraulic Oil as a replacement for most synthetic and conventional hydraulic fluids in stationary and mobile applications using gear, vane, and piston hydraulic systems operating under high pressure and high temperatures. Typical applications include construction, logging, farming equipment, lawn, and turf care, or anywhere leaking, spills or ruptured hydraulic lines may present an environmental hazard.
