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.
AMSOIL Synthetic AW Series Antiwear 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 prevent acid formation
and viscosity increase and inhibit rust and foam (providing smooth
hydraulic operation). AW Oils contain a very effective zinc-based
antiwear/antioxidant additive which controls wear in high-speed,
highpressure vane and gear pumps while meeting the lubrication
requirements of axial piston pumps with bronze-on-steel metallurgy.
AW Oils meet the requirements for Maximum Efficiency Hydraulic
Fluid (mehf) and can lower costs and/or increase productivity
in mobile equipment by 3 to 4.5%. Improved pump efficiency can
increase hydraulic power, reduce fuel consumption and improve
productivity. They are designed for long life and 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 and work to prevent carbon and varnish deposits.
The very high viscosity indices, low pour points and lack of paraffins
(wax) make these good all-season lubricants well suited for temperature
extremes. At high temperatures and pressures, AW 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.

The correct viscosity grades of AMSOIL Synthetic
AW Series Antiwear Hydraulic Oils are recommended for high- and
low-pressure gear, vane and piston stationary and mobile hydraulic
systems. They meet the performance requirements of all major hydraulic
manufacturers and are excellent for general purpose use where
extended drain intervals are desired and in severe duty operations
where temperature extremes are encountered. Because they are light-bodied
and possess very good cold-temperature properties, AWF and AWG
are the preferred choices for temperatures below -20°F.
Some applications include machine tools and presses,
mobile construction equipment, farming equipment, logging trucks,
boom trucks and plastic injection molding machines. The appropriate
viscosity grades of AW Oils are also suitable for use in pneumatic
tools and spindles.
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.
