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
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
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
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.
