Compressor Oil Cross Reference Guide (68k PDF)
AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil maintains performance across a wide operating temperature range. Its low pour point, high viscosity index and lack of paraffins (wax) makes it an excellent all season lubricant. At high temperatures, SIROCCO® forms virtually no carbon, allowing for clean operation. At cold temperatures, equipment starts easier and the lubricant is quickly pumped to critical components, preventing lubricant starvation and excessive wear. SIROCCO® Compressor Oil also resists water to prevent damaging oil/water emulsions, allowing for longer lubricant life and ease of water removal from the sump.
• Resists foaming
AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Ester Compressor Oil has higher flash, fire and auto ignition points than competitive petroleum oils. Its resistance to carbon formation and the ashless additive system minimize the incidence of deposits acting as ignition-promoting hot spots. Although AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil increases fire safety, it cannot be considered nonflammable.
When installing AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil, it is recommended that the old oil be thoroughly drained and if warranted, the system cleaned. If a lot of carbon or residue is found on the internal compressor parts, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for removal prior to installing the new oil. AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil has 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.
AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil is compatible with and recommended as a replacement for much higher priced polyalkylene glycol (PAG) compressor oils or coolants such as Sullair Sullube 32® and Ingersoll Rand SSR Ultra Coolant®. No flushing is necessary when changing over from Glycol Coolants to AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil. However, draining the system and changing the filters is recommended.
AMSOIL SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is recommended for use up to 8,000+ hours for most compressor applications. However, this is subject to operating conditions and maintenance practices. Monitoring by oil analysis every 1,000 hours is recommended.
*AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor Oil is NOT RECOMMENDED as a replacement for or for use with the silicone-based compressor oil Sullair Sullube 24KT®. AMSOIL SIROCCO® is NOT RECOMMENDED for use in“Breathing Air or Refrigeration” compressors.
