Wear Control -- AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils have been proven to keep wear rates lower than conventional oils do (see demonstrations and tests below). Synthetic basestocks reduce friction more effectively than conventional basestocks do, which lowers wear rates and helps keep engine heat from climbing excessively. Outstanding quality antiwear additives protect surfaces from wear in conditions in which a full lubricating film does not develop.
Acid Neutralization and Soot Control -- AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils are 12 Total Base Number (TBN) oils and have been proven to neutralize acids and control corrosion for longer periods than conventional oils do (see demonstrations and tests below). The top-quality detergents responsible for long-term acid neutralization also inhibit deposit formation on hot engine surfaces. AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils' highly effective dispersants control soot and other contaminants for long-lasting protection against wear and sludge formation.
Low Temperature Fluidity -- AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils remain fluid in low temperatures. Low temperature fluidity helps engines start in cold temperatures and ensures rapid cold-temperature post-startup protection.
Chemical and Physical Stability -- AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils offer superior thermal, oxidative and shear stability. Thermal stability allows them to work in high temperatures without undergoing molecular breakdown with consequent increases in oil consumption and formation of sludge precursors. Oxidative stability allows them to work in high temperatures without undergoing chemical changes leading to oil thickening, loss of lubricating ability, and sludge and acid formation. Shear stability keeps them from falling out of viscosity grade and losing their ability to protect against metal-to-metal contact and wear in engine operating temperatures as a result of shear forces.
Fuel Economy -- AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils' low coefficient of friction improves fuel economy by reducing the loss of power to friction. Fuel economy increases of five percent are common with AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils.
Extended Drain Intervals -- Fleet demonstrations show AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils protect engines more effectively for extended drain intervals than conventional oils do for conventional drain intervals (see below). Many truckers use AMSOIL synthetic diesel motor oils indefinitely, using oil analysis as their guide to oil changes.
Oil analysis enables maintenance personnel to evaluate motor oil service life and engine condition and save significantly on downtime, equipment repair and oil-related costs.

AMSOIL Synthetic Gear Lubes keep differentials and gear-lube equipped transmissions running clean, protected and at top-efficiency.
Load-bearing and extreme pressure protection -- AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes are formulated to protect gears operating in heavily loaded conditions, whether or not the gears operate with full film lubrication. Superior film strength and viscosity retention offer superior protection in full film regimes, while top-quality extreme pressure agents protect when a full lubricating film does not separate gear surfaces.
The thermal durability of AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes ensures extreme pressure protection after extended exposure to extreme temperatures. The extreme pressure agents in conventional gear lubes sometimes lose their effectiveness after extended exposure to high temperatures, leaving gears vulnerable to metal-to-metal contact and wear.
Friction-Reduction -- AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes reduce friction effectively, which reduces power losses and increases fuel economy.
The superior ability of AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes to reduce friction also helps keep gear operating temperatures from rising out of the optimal range. Users report gear temperature reduction up to 50 deg. F with AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes.
High and low temperature performance -- AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes maintain their viscosity better with changes in temperature than conventional lubes do, which allows them to protect over a broader temperature range.
AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes also maintain better low temperature fluidity than conventional gear lubes do, so AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes go to work more quickly in cold conditions than conventional lubes do. Studies have shown AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes flow to operating gears in less than a minute, while conventional gear lubes require as much as five minutes to reach the gears they are meant to protect.
AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes protect in higher temperatures than conventional gear lubes do, due to the superior thermal and oxidative stability of AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes. Superior thermal and oxidative stability protects the lube from breaking down in high temperatures and protects gears from sludge, varnish, deposits and other products of lubricant breakdown.
Extended drains -- In commercial vehicles operated in normal conditions, AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes may be used up to five times longer than conventional petroleum gear lubes may be used.
More -- AMSOIL synthetic gear lubes provide limited slip capability, and may be used in limited slip differentials without special additives.
AMSOIL synthetic greases offer outstanding protection and extended service lives.
Load-bearing and extreme pressure protection -- AMSOIL synthetic extreme pressure lithium complex greases offer outstanding protection in high load and extreme pressure operations, due to the great film strength of synthetic basestocks, the mechanical stability of lithium complex thickeners and the protective shield provided by extreme pressure agents.
Friction-reduction -- AMSOIL synthetic extreme pressure lithium complex greases' low coefficient of friction helps keep wear rates low and fuel efficiency high by minimizing friction.
High and low temperature performance -- Outstanding thermal and oxidative stability allow AMSOIL synthetic greases to protect in higher temperatures than conventional greases can without breaking down or forming deposits. Outstanding cold temperature pumpability allows them to protect in lower temperatures than conventional greases do.
More -- Excellent washout resistance and corrosion inhibition offer outstanding protection in wet applications or for stored equipment.
The purchase, installation and upkeep of industrial machinery is a large investment for any company. In order to protect their investment, it makes sense for companies to do all they can to maintain and make sure they get the maximum service life possible out of their equipment. Proper lubrication is essential to getting the most service possible out of industrial machinery.
Industrial air compressors are subject to severe operating conditions. High heat and pressure conditions typical in air compressors can degrade internal components, severely shortening the air compressor’s operating life. In order to combat these high heat and pressure conditions, it is crucial to use a high quality air compressor oil.
Consumers have a variety of options when it comes to air compressor oils. Equipment manufacturers often produce their own brands of air compressor oil, and other oils on the market are engineered to specifically enhance one property of the oil at the expense of the other properties. As a result, an oil may be top notch when it comes to rust protection, but it falters in its heat reducing properties. This weakens the overall performance of the air compressor oil. To ensure proper and effective lubrication, air compressor oils should maintain a balance between all lubricating properties.
