Amsoil Commercial & Industrial Products

Reduced operating costs * Greater fuel economy
Increased equipment durability * Extended drain intervals

In 1972, AMSOIL INC. introduced AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motor Oil and became the first company in the world to manufacture and market an American Petroleum Institute (API) rated synthetic motor oil.

Why synthetic? Because synthetic lubricants are superior to conventional petroleum lubricants. Petroleum lubes are refined from crude oil, a natural substance pumped from the earth and containing diverse chemicals. Some of the chemicals in petroleum oil are detrimental to the lubrication process and to the lubricated components. For example, some petoleum oil chemicals invite oxidation in high temperature operations. Oxidation qickly destroys lubricant integrity.

Synthetic lubes, on the other hand, are not refined from crude oil, but constructed from pure chemicals selected for their ability to lubricate. The purity of synthetic lubricant basestocks significantly reduces lubricant oxidation, which promotes the ability of synthetics to be used in higher temperature applications than conventional lubes may be and promotes their ability to be used for extended drain intervals. In fact, AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are specially formulated for extended drain intervals.

Synthetics are also free of the paraffins found in conventional petroleum oils. With no paraffin to congeal at low temperatures, synthetics maintain better low temperature fluidity than pertroleum oils do, which protects equipment operating in cold environments -- even the relative cold of a just-started engine.

The molecular uniformity of carefully selected synthetic lubes promotes superior lubrication and friction reduction, which in turn promotes superior heat control, wear control and energy efficiency. Molecular uniformity also helps synthetics maintain their protective viscosity in high temperature operations, which also promotes superior wear control.

The superior performance and protection afforded your equipment by AMSOIL synthetic lubricants adds up to increased productive time and profits for you.


Compressor Oils

AMSOIL Synthetic PC Series Compressor Oils are made from high-quality synthetic oils. They promote long compressor life through reduced component wear, corrosion protection and resistance to water degradation and lubricant breakdown.

" I credit AMSOIL Compressor Oil with savings in five areas. By helping our compressors run 20 degrees F to 40 degrees F cooler, we no longer need fans and special ventilation systems for heat reduction. With those cooler operating temperatures and the high-quality fluid, our valves don't carbon up, so we don't have to replace them as often. Our compressors draw 10 percent less amperage with AMSOIL Compressor Oil. Our oil consumption is way down and we've gone from three-month to 8000-hour compressor oil drain intervals. Multiply those savings times thousands of compressors and you can see why we're installing AMSOIL Compressor Oil nationwide. "

Available in five viscosity grades, AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Compressor Oils match compressor manufacturer viscosity recommendations.

Performance Features

AMSOIL Synthetic PC Series Compressor Oils are highly resistant to thermal and oxidative breakdown, which inhibits carbon buildup. The inhibition of carbon buildup promotes efficient, normal temperature range operation.

AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Compressor Oils are formulated to keep water from mixing with the oil and deteriorating its lubricating ability. AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Compressor Oils are also formulated for easy water removal, with no need for specialized water removal processes.

Safety Advantage

AMSOIL Synthetic PC Series Compressor Oils' higher flash, fire and auto-ignition points and reduced tendency to form carbon deposits makes them a reduced fire or explosion hazard as compared to conventional petroleum compressor oils.


AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is a high-quality, long-life fluid formulated with premium synthetic ester technology. SIROCCO® effectively prevents wear, oxidation, foam and rust, while its inherent lubricity and thermal conductivity reduce heat and energy consumption, increasing operating efficiency and reducing maintenance costs.

Application Recommendations

AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is a multi-viscosity oil meeting the requirements of 5W-20. It may be used in applications calling for either an ISO-32 or ISO-46 compressor oil or coolant and is recommended for use in single- and multi-stage rotary screw compressors and vacuum pumps that call for this viscosity.

Performance Features

AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil maintains performance across a wide operating temperature range. Its low pour point, high viscosity index and lack of paraffins (wax) make it an excellent all-season lubricant.

SIROCCO® is also highly resistant to water. It prevents damaging oil/water emulsions, allowing for longer lubricant life and ease of water removal from the sump.

AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil resists oxidation, foaming and rust for extended drain performance. It is also biodegradable under the CEC-L33-A94 standard.

AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil has higher flash, fire and auto ignition points than competitive petroleum oils. Its resistance to carbon formation and its ashless additive system minimize the incidence of deposits acting as ignition-promoting hot spots.

AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil safely replaces PAG type compressor oils, such as Ingersoll-Rand SSR Ultra-Coolant® or Sullair Sullube 32®, following normal oil change procedures, without extensive flushing.
