AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Compressor Oil 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.
Improves Compressor Efficiency
AMSOIL PC Series Oil has low friction properties, resists
viscosity increase from oxidation and helps improve operating
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.
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.
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
AMSOIL PC Series Oil in the appropriate viscosity is recommended
for use in single and multistage rotary screw, vane,
centrifugal and reciprocating compressor crankcases and
cylinders, vacuum pumps, pressure washer pumps and other
applications such as gears, bearings, blowers, pumps and
handheld pneumatic tools. In compressor applications, drain
intervals of 8,000 hours or more can be expected under normal
operation. Drain intervals are subject to operating conditions
and maintenance practices. Monitoring by oil analysis
is recommended. For best performance when converting to
AMSOIL PC Series Oil, it is recommended the compressor
be flushed of the old oil and all filters changed prior to the
installation of PC Series Oil. If carbon deposits are present on
the internal components, it is recommended they be removed
following the compressor manufacturer recommendations.
