For Maximum Long-Life Protection in Rotary Screw, Vane, Centrifugal, Reciprocating Compressors, Vacuum Pumps and More – Withstands High Heat and Pressure
Improves Compressor Efficiency and Energy Consumption, Prevents Corrosion, Reduces Maintenance and Costs
AMSOIL PC Series PAO Synthetic Air Compressor Oils (Product Codes: PCH, PCI, PCJ, PCK) are premium, long-life compressor lubricants based on novel, proprietary technology. They incorporate the highest-quality PAO (polyalphaolefin) synthetic base oils with premium non-detergent, ashless additives to provide maximum protection in demanding compressor applications. AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils last up to eight times longer than petroleum oils, effectively reducing maintenance and waste oil disposal costs. They also save money by extending compressor life.

Unique Synthetic Formulation Withstands Compressor Heat and Pressure
The average compressor performs under very severe operating conditions. High heat and high pressure required to maintain satisfactory levels of compressed air can degrade internal compressor components and shorten any compressor’s operating life. To ease the burden of operating stresses, a quality compressor oil is needed.
AMSOIL PC Series Air Compressor Oils are formulated from premium synthetic base oils and specialized additives. This unique formulation allows AMSOIL PC Series to increase operational efficiency, reduce energy consumption, lower operating temperatures and be used in a wider operating temperature range. AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils minimize carbon build-up and provide clean performance.
Resists Water Contamination, Prevents Rust and Corrosion
Water from condensation builds up in compressors and can cause unwanted oil water emulsions, environmental discharge hazards and rust. AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils are hydrolytically stable; they resist water to prevent damaging oil water emulsions, allowing for better lubrication, longer lubricant life and ease of water removal from the sump – water can be easily drained off for simplified environmental discharge and increased oil life. AMSOIL PC Series are anti-rust fortified.
A Complete Additive System for Top Performance
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils are fortified with additives designed for compressor applications. Unlike some other compressor oils, they are anti-wear fortified. The anti-foam agents stop unwanted foaming and air entrapment, the corrosion inhibitors protect internal parts against rust and corrosion, and the oxidation inhibitors increase lubricant life by preventing carbon formation and lubricant degradation.
Reduces Heat and Wear
Good foam control reduces heat, oxidation and wear. AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils’ anti-foam additives help keep high contact regions protected against wear for increased compressor life and efficiency.
Reduces Maintenance Costs
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils last several times longer than petroleum oils (8,000+ hours for most compressor applications), effectively reducing maintenance costs and lowering labor and waste oil disposal costs.
Eliminates Seasonal Fluid Changes
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils can operate in a wide operating temperature range – they remain fluid in cold temperatures and have excellent stability in high temperatures. These features reduce the need for seasonal fluid changes, which means an overall savings for you.
Reduces the Need for Frequent Repairs or Rebuilds
The ashless non-detergent, anti-wear additives found in AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils prevent deposits and keep components in like-new condition, reducing the need for frequent repairs or rebuilds.
Longer Compressor Life
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils combine the inherent stability of premium synthetic base oils with specialized anti-oxidant additives to resist varnish, carbon and acid formation. They resist oil breakdown much longer than conventional compressor oils, offering better wear protection, especially during hot operating temperatures. Better wear protection and cleaner performance translates into longer compressor life and longer oil life.
Improves Compressor Efficiency, Saves Money on Energy Consumption
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils have low-friction properties and they resist viscosity increase from oxidation, which helps improve compressor efficiency and saves money on electrical energy consumption.
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils have higher flash, fire and auto-ignition points than competitive petroleum oils. Their resistance to carbon formation and the ashless additive system minimizes the incidence of deposits acting as ignition-promoting hot spots. (Note: While AMSOIL PC Series Compressor Oils can provide improved fire safety, they cannot be considered non-flammable.)
AMSOIL Outperforms the Competition in Pricing
AMSOIL outperforms the competition in pricing. One reason for this is that AMSOIL is sold factory-direct, eliminating the cost-increasing steps normally used in distributing other compressor oils. Some equipment manufacturers also have their own oils mentioned in their compressor warranties, allowing them to increase the prices charged for their “specialty” oils. AMSOIL can offer the best overall quality compressor oil and still provide the best price!
Extended Service Life
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils may be used for 8,000 hours or more for most compressor applications under normal operation. Drain intervals are subject to operating conditions and maintenance practices. Monitoring by oil analysis is recommended.
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils are compatible with petroleum oils and most other synthetic lubricants*. AMSOIL PC Series Compressor Oils can be used with the following gases, paints, plastics and elastomers commonly used in compressors:

*Not compatible with polyalkylene glycol or silicone oils such as Sullair 24KT, Sullube 32 and Ingersoll Rand SSR Ultra Coolant. AMSOIL PC Compressor Oils are not recommended for “breathing air” or refrigeration compressors; they are also not recommended for use with polycarbonate plastic that is not metal covered, PVC plastic, butyl, ethylene-propylene and SBR rubber.
Viscosity Grades and Applications
AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oils are available in five viscosity grades: ISO 32 (PCH) , ISO 46 (PCI), ISO 68 (PCJ) and ISO 100 (PCK) and meet the requirements of SAE 10W, SAE 20, SAE 30 and SAE 40, respectively. AMSOIL PC Series Compressor Oils, in the appropriate viscosity, are recommended for use in single- and multi-stage rotary screw, vane, centrifugal and reciprocating compressor crankcases and cylinders, vacuum pumps and other compressor applications such as gears, bearings, blowers, pumps and handheld pneumatic tools.
Note: For best performance when converting to AMSOIL PC Synthetic Air Compressor Oil, it is recommended that the old oil be thoroughly drained of the old fluid prior to the installation of AMSOIL PC Series. If carbon deposits are present on the internal components, it is recommended they be removed following the compressor manufacturer recommendations. AMSOIL PC Series have a high level of solvency and may remove deposits left in the system. Check the filters and oil/air separators regularly for the first 500 hours of operation and replace as necessary.
