PAO Rotary Compressor Oil

  • Base Oil Technology: PAO
  • Viscosity Range: ISO 32-150
  • Viscosity Index: 138-168

AMSOIL Industrial PAO Rotary Compressor Oil is a premium, full-synthetic compressor oil that provides extended service intervals in rotary screw compressors. It maintains cleanliness and fights oil consumption, helping reduce maintenance and save money.

  • Provides up to 16,000-hour drain intervals in rotary screw compressors (at 200°F discharge temperatures) for reduced maintenance.
  • Reduces oil consumption and minimizes top-offs due to extremely low foam and excellent air-release.
  • Protects against varnish to keep components clean and functioning properly.

 

SUPERIOR OPERATION & REDUCED MAINTENANCE

  • Fights damaging varnish despite increased heat for maximum efficiency.
  • Demonstrates low varnish potential after 16,000 hours in the Membrane Patch Colorimetry (MPC) Varnish Potential Test for long component and oil life.

 

REDUCED OIL CONSUMPTION

  • Excellent foam resistance and air-release properties help reduce oil consumption.
  • Required 100% less make-up oil than a major original equipment manufacturer oil over an 8,000-hour period, helping operators save time and money.
  • Offers peace of mind that compressors are protected despite severe service.
