Features and Benefits of AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Air Compressor Oil

  • Reduces friction for reduced energy consumption
  • Ashless formula resists carbon and deposits
  • High flash point
  • Withstands moisture contamination
  • Long service life
  • Remarkable cold weather performance
  • Suitable for many applications

Reduces Energy Consumption

The inherent low friction properties of AMSOIL PC Series means that air compressors require less energy to operate. Switching to this product is one small step toward reducing the energy usage of your operation.

Resistant To Temperature Extremes

AMSOIL PC Series Air Compressor Oil offers impressive performance at both ends of the thermometer. PC Series is designed to endure long stretches of hot operating conditions. It maintains its viscosity for steady protection, while resisting the formation of deposits (the scourge of any air compressor). In situations where extreme cold is a risk, PC Series delivers easy start-up and consistent operation. A cold pour point of -53°C (ISO 32) means steady performance, regardless of the season.

Oil Change Interval for AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Air Compressor Oil

For general air compressor use, this product should be changed after 8000 hours of operation or longer when oil analysis is employed. We offer oil analysis services with labs in both Canada and the United States.

For uses other than general air compressor service, change this oil at the interval prescribed by the equipment manufacturer.
