The appropriate viscosity of AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oil is recommended
for use in rotary vane and reciprocating compressors and vacuum pumps. Drain intervals of 8,000 hours or more can be expected under normal operation. This is subject to operating conditions and maintenance practices. Monitoring by oil analysis is recommended.
AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils are long-life, premium compressor lubricants based on novel, proprietary technology. They improve compressor efficiency and extend drain intervals in reciprocating (piston) compressors and vacuum pumps where high discharge temperatures or carbon build-up are a concern.
AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils incorporate the highest quality, thermally-stable synthetic esters fortified with premium non-detergent, ashless additives for maximum protection at high temperatures and pressures where petroleum lubricants typically break down.
Improves Compressor Efficiency
AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils are designed to prevent hard carbon deposits on valves for greatly improved compressor efficiency. Valve maintenance is extended and recompression is virtually eliminated. Compressor efficiency is improved, heat is reduced and money is saved through lower electrical energy consumption.
Unlike other compressor oils, AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils are anti-wear fortified. They help reduce wear in high contact regions for increased compressor life and efficiency.
Extends Oil Life
AMSOIL DC Series Compressor Oils combine the inherent oxidation resistance of synthetic esters with highly potent oxidation inhibitors. They last several times longer than petroleum oils, effectively reducing maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.
Reduced Oil Consumption
The low volatility, highly polar nature of AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils reduces the amount of oil needed for cylinder lubrication compared to petroleum oils. Drip feed rates can be lowered, downstream oil is minimized and money is saved on make-up oil.
Resists Water Contamination
Water from condensation builds up in compressors that can cause oil/water emulsions, environmental discharge hazards and rust. AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils readily separate from water, and they are anti-rust fortified. Water can be easily drained off for simplified environmental discharge and increased oil life.
AMSOIL DC Synthetic Compressor Oils are ashless, high flash point formulations with very low carbon-forming tendencies that minimize the incidence of ignition-promoting “hot spots.” While DC Synthetic Compressor Oils can provide improved fire safety, they cannot be considered non-flammable.
DC Synthetic Compressor Oils are compatible with petroleum and most other synthetic-based lubricants (not compatible with polyalkylene glycol or silicone oils). For best performance, AMSOIL recommends the compressor be thoroughly drained and cleaned if needed prior to the installation of DC Synthetic Compressor Oils. If carbon deposits are present on the internal components, it is recommended they be removed following the manufacturer recommendations. For the first 500 hours of operation, check the filters regularly and clean or replace as necessary.
