AMSOIL Quality Control Measures
are Thorough and Extensive
Companies Might Tout Their Quality Control Practices, But
Few Approach the AMSOIL Standard.
When visitors tour
AMSOIL headquarters in Superior, Wisconsin, they frequently
comment on the cleanliness of the facilities. Whether you
walk around the offices, distribution center or the blending
and packaging areas, everything is tidy and organized. That's
no accident, but the result of determined effort and an unwavering
commitment to quality control.
is an exacting, step-by-step process that ensures every AMSOIL
product is consistently blended, consistently formulated,
consistently packaged and consistently tested before a Dealer
or customer makes a purchase. Many companies tout quality
control, but few do it like AMSOIL. Everything AMSOIL does
- from receiving raw materials and warehousing to packaging
and shipping - is governed by clearly defined quality-control
procedures. The first line of the AMSOIL quality policy states,
"It is the policy of AMSOIL INC. to provide products
with 'exceptional performance' that exceed customer expectations."
Doing so requires exceptional employee performance and exceptional
an advanced blending operation with access to a wide range
of raw materials handled by the 2.5 million gallons of storage-tank
capacity on site. You probably know that AMSOIL uses the best
base stocks and additives available to formulate the best
lubricants possible. But that's just one of many quality-control
steps taken here. Did you know that every drum, tanker truck
and railroad car of raw materials AMSOIL receives is tagged
and held in quarantine until it can be tested in our laboratory?
Only after the material is tested to verify it meets specifications
can it be transferred into the tanks and production chain.
is a meticulous activity achieved by employees following explicit
work instructions and aided by ultramodern equipment. Our
state-of-the-art simultaneous metered blending system (SMB)
affords maximum control and efficiency over the blending process
and ensures that each product receives precisely formulated
amounts of base oils and additives required for optimum performance.
The blending process also ensures that all fluids are carefully
tested numerous times in the laboratory before being labeled
as AMSOIL products. After final lab approval fluids enter
the packaging stage, but the show must go on. Between runs,
the lines are cleaned thoroughly with a squeegee-like device
called a "pig" that makes two complete passes through
the pipes to remove any residue leftover from the prior batch.
This guarantees that the next fluid traveling the line has
a clean environment and that cross-contamination does not
of bottles that AMSOIL receives also must pass inspection,
with random bottles being examined and weighed for consistency
before entering production. And before lubricants are dispensed
into their packages, they are filtered according to industry
specifications using appropriate synthetic media for the respective
product. Bottles are filled to defined weights and capped
to a consistent torque. As bottles proceed through production,
an inline scale identifies and removes any containers failing
to meet specified weight requirements. They also pass a camera
that inspects every bottle for crooked or loose caps. If an
improperly capped bottle is discovered, the optical system
sends a flashing signal notifying a line worker of the problem,
who can then recap it and ensure a proper seal. Every bottle
is also coded with several pieces of information, including
date and time of production, which line it ran on and who
was responsible for the line at that time. Such data not only
provides transparency, it allows for back-referencing should
a problem arise later. Even our labels go through a quality
process, with all labels containing a certificate of analysis
(COA) that guarantees their accuracy before they stamp a container.
We began this article
talking about clean facilities. AMSOIL Production Manager
Bill Archibald notes, "We keep the blending and production
areas clean by instilling the importance of cleanliness in
every employee." Clean facilities are the result of continuous
and ongoing effort. If a spill occurs, it is cleaned immediately
- not later, not at the end of the day, but now.
These are just
a few examples of our multi-faceted approach to quality control.
Going the extra mIle benefits customers and Dealers alike;
both can purchase, use and recommend AMSOIL products without
hesitation, knowing that quality raw materials and quality
procedures yield quality products.

synthetic motor oils are formulated to surpass engine test
specifications, offering protection far greater than competing
motor oils for extended drain intervals. Most synthetic oil
manufacturers make no claim to extended drain intervals, deferring
to the maintenance schedule provided by the vehicle manufacturer.
With its unparalleled oil and warranty program, AMSOIL offers
consumers unprecedented protection and economics.
More than 20 years
ago, AMSOIL began using the NOACK volatility test as a comparison
tool and measurement of quality. Back then, nearly every oil
tested side-by-side with AMSOIL synthetic motor oils failed,
and those that passed barely squeaked by. Other oil companies
paid no attention to NOACK results until Ford Motor Company
made it a requirement for service fill oils, validating what
AMSOIL had said all along.
NOACK Volatility Test
Volatility Test determines the evaporation loss
of lubricants in high temperature service. The more
motor oils vaporize, the thicker and heavier they become,
contributing to poor circulation, reduced fuel economy
and increased oil consumption, wear and emissions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motor Oil resists high temperature volatization
better than other motor oils. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor
Oil maintains peak fuel efficiency and reduces oil consumption
