AMSOIL 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.
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® Synthetic Compressor Oil (SEI) 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.
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
• Rust and oxidation inhibited
• Readily separates from water
• Recommended for use in rotary screw compressors
• Long-life/extended drain performance.
• Compatible with polyglycol fluids such as Sullair Sullube 32® and Ingersoll-Rand SSR Ultra-coolant®
• Biodegradable under the CEC-L33-A94 standard safety advantage
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.
AMSOIL SIROCCO® 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 SIROCCO® Compressor Oil are listed below.
*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.
Seals – Viton®, High Nitrile Buna N (>36%), Teflon®
Paints – Epoxy, Oil-Resistant Alkyd, Two-Part Urethane
