Product Code: SEI
SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is formulated with premium
synthetic ester technology. This high-quality, long-life fluid lasts
several times longer in use than mineral-based oils. AMSOIL SIROCCO®
Compressor Oil is fully formulated with nondetergent additives and
is designed for use in rotary screw compressors and vacuum pumps.
SIROCCO® effectively protects against wear, oxidation, foam and rust
and has inherent lubricity and good thermal conductivity which allow
it to reduce heat and energy consumption. AMSOIL SIROCCO® Compressor
Oil increases operating efficiency, reducing money spent on energy,
repair and maintenance costs.
SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil maintains performance across a
wide operating temperature range. Its low pour point, high viscosity
index and lack of paraffin's (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.
Package sizes include:
- 5-Gallon Pail
- 55-Gallon Drum
- 275-Gallon Tote
SIROCCO® Synthetic Compressor Oil is a multi-viscosity oil meeting
the requirements of 5W-20. It may be used in applications calling
for either an ISO-32 or ISO-46 compressor oil or coolant. It is
recommended for use in single and multi-stage rotary screw
compressors and vacuum pumps that call for this viscosity.
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.
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
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.
Compressor Oil is compatible with petroleum oils, most synthetic
oils*, and many seals, paints and materials commonly used in
compressors. Materials recommended and not recommended for use with
Compressor Oil are listed below.
Compressor Oil is NOT RECOMMENDED as a replacement for or for use
with the silicone-based compressor oil Sullair Sullube 24KT®. AMSOIL
