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.

This is one of the most competitive products AMSOIL’s sells. The feedback over the years from firms such as General Dynamics, Pilot Chemical and numerous businesses such as tire shops, furniture & wood mills, print shops, has been all great praise. We solve problems and save you time and money!

Improves Compressor Efficiency

AMSOIL PC Synthetic Compressor Oils have low friction properties and resist viscosity increase from oxidation. They help improve operating efficiency and save money on electrical energy consumption.

Control Foam and Reduces Wear

AMSOIL PC Compressor Oils contain anti-foam additives and, unlike other compressor oils, they are anti-wear fortified. Good foam control reduces heat, oxidation and wear. High contact regions are protected against wear for increased compressor life and efficiency.

Resist 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 disposaland increased oil life.

Resist Heat and Oxidation

AMSOIL PC Series Compressor Oils combine the inherent stability of premium synthetic base oils with specialized anti-oxidant additives to resist varnish, carbon and acid formation. They protect compressors better and last longer in service than petroleum oils, especially during hot operating conditions.

Safety Advantage

AMSOIL PC Series Synthetic Compressor Oils are ashless, high flash point formulations with very low carbonforming tendencies that minimize the incidence of ignition-promoting “hot spots.” While PC Synthetic Compressor Oils can provide improved fire safety, they cannot be considered non-flammable.

Application Recommendation*

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.
