Data Bulletin 

Amsoil Synthetic AW Series Anti-Wear Hydraulic Oils are shear-stable, long-life lubricants based on high-quality synthetic oil technology. These oils are formulated with a premium additive system that inhibits oxidation to help prevent acid formation and viscosity increase and inhibit rust and foam (providing smooth hydraulic operation). AW Oils contain a very effective zinc-based anti-wear/antioxidant additive which controls wear in high-speed, high-pressure vane and gear pumps while meeting the lubrication requirements of axial piston pumps with bronze-on-steel metallurgy. Improved pump efficiency can increase hydraulic power, reduce fuel consumption and improve productivity. AW Oils are designed for long life and can typically reduce maintenance costs by extending drain intervals and reducing labor costs, repairs and downtime.

Amsoil Synthetic Base Oil Technology

Amsoil synthetic base oils resist thermal and oxidative breakdown, reducing varnish deposits. The very high viscosity indices, low pour points and lack of paraffins (wax) make these good all-season lubricants well-suited for high and low temperature extremes. At high temperatures and pressures, Amsoil AW Series Oils provide a good lubricating film and protect components against wear. During cold-temperature operation, equipment starts easier and the need for preheating with sump heaters is reduced. The AW Series base oils also readily separate from water, preventing oil/water emulsions that inhibit lubrication and allowing for longer lubricant life and easier water drainage from the sump.

Product Highlights

Protects hard-working hydraulic systems from the stress of high-pressure, high-load and heavy-duty operations. Remains fluid in cold temperatures for immediate cold-weather flow. Special anti-wear additives and rust inhibitors provide optimum protection to expensive equipment.

Performance Features

  • Antiwear protection for high-pressure systems
  • Recommended for gear, vane and piston pumps
  • Contain rust, oxidation and foam inhibitors
  • Designed for extreme-temperature operation
  • Hydrolytically stable and readily separate from water

Application Recommendation

The correct viscosity grades of Amsoil Synthetic AW Series Anti-Wear Hydraulic Oils are recommended for high- and low-pressure gear, vane and piston stationary and mobile hydraulic systems. They are excellent for general-purpose use where extended drain intervals are desired and in severe-duty operations where temperature extremes are encountered.

Amsoil AW Series Oils are compatible with hydraulic system seals, petroleum hydraulic oils and most synthetic hydraulic oils*. For optimum performance, it is recommended the system be thoroughly drained and, if warranted, cleaned prior to installation. Oil analysis is recommended to maximize oil drain intervals.

* Not compatible with phosphate ester, silicone or water-based fluids.

Product Highlights

AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil’s blend of high-viscosity-index base oils and performance additives provides all-season protection and reliable operation in all types of hydraulic systems.

AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil’s blend of high-viscosity-index base oils and performance additives provides all-season protection and reliable operation in all types of hydraulic systems. Its proven wear resistance and varnish-control deliver maximum hydraulic system performance and life. Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil is additionally tailored to promote energy efficiency and foam suppression.

All-Season Performance

Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil is designed for all-season use. Each viscosity covers a broad operating temperature range, helping eliminate seasonal oil changes. Its low pour point ensures the oil flows more readily in cold temperatures than petroleum oils. Bearings and other components receive almost immediate lubrication at start up, reducing long-term wear and instances of pressure spikes and erratic operation as a result of poor fluidity. At high operating temperatures, Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil resists thermal breakdown and maintains its protective viscosity, allowing formation of a strong lubricating film.

Excessive oxidation results in harmful deposits and varnish that cause a host of problems, including stuck valves and decreased efficiency. In severe oxidation testing, Amsoil Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil resisted elevated heat and oxidaton more effectively than the conventional fluid.

Varnish-Control Technology

Increased heat can cause varnish to form on metal surfaces, including valves, pumps and bearings. Its soft, sticky composition ultimately hardens into a harmful veneer that can reduce fluid flow, plug filters, stick valves and increase friction. Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil is fortified with anti-varnish additives that chemically react with the building blocks of varnish, inhibiting its formation. It helps hydraulic systems remain clean and long-lasting.
