AMSOIL Synthetic Lubricants
Resist Sludge Better Than Conventional Oils
is the result of insoluble debris overloading the lubricant.
Anyone who has
purchased a new vehicle knows its value depreciates the instant
it's driven off the lot. In some ways, lubricants behave
the same way. Once you install an oil or transmission fluid,
it begins to age, especially conventional lubricants.
Oxygen reacts with
the lubricant and results in a permanent chemical
change where oil picks up oxygen and gets thicker. Just like
oxygen attacks metal surfaces and causes corrosion, it negatively
affects lubricants and reduces their ability to lubricate,
cool and protect components. Excessive heat speeds the oxidation
process. In fact, every 18°F (10°C) increase in temperature
doubles the rate of oxidation.
Adding to the
challenge, contaminants begin to form during normal operation.
In engines, hot combustion gases
can blow by the piston rings and contaminate engine oil. Glycol
from engine coolant, water that forms with temperature fluctuations,
soot (in diesels) and fuel are other common contaminants that
affect lubricants. Left unchecked, contaminants accelerate
chemical reactions, which overloads the lubricant and causes
the formation of sludge - a gelatinous substance that wreaks
havoc in engines.
Sludge can block
the oil passages and oil-pump pick-up screen, resulting in
oil starvation. You don't have to be an engineer to
know what eventually happens to an engine that runs without oil. Often, the negative
effects are cumulative rather than sudden. Many engines with
variable valve timing (VVT) use oil-pressure-operated mechanical
devices to change valve timing, duration and lift. Sludge
can plug the solenoid screen or oil gallies and impact the
operation of VVT mechanisms, eventually leading to
a costly repair bill. Sludge reduces efficiency and increases
time and money spent on maintenance.
Although we typically
associate sludge with engines, it also affects transmissions,
particularly those used in severe-service applications. Modern
automatic transmissions feature a dizzying array of oil passages,
gears, clutch packs and electronics. A steady supply of clean,
high-quality transmission fluid is vital to getting the most
out of your transmission. Sludge can clog the narrow oil passages
and cause delayed or elongated shifts. Just as in engines,
severe cases of sludge in transmissions can plug filters,
leading to starvation and catastrophic failure.
Given the laws
of chemistry, it seems nearly impossible to protect your vehicles against sludge,
especially since modern engines and transmissions run hotter
than their predecessors. But the good news is high-quality
synthetic lubricants resist the tendency to form sludge while
extending oil service.
As you may suspect,
synthetic base oils do a better job resisting sludge than
conventional base oils because they are naturally more resistant
to oxidation. AMSOIL synthetic lubricants are formulated with
base oils that resist reactions with free radicals that create
sludge, similar to how you need to keep up a strong immune
system to resist chemical and genetic changes that can lead
and antioxidant additives also play a key role. They help
maintain internal cleanliness by suspending contaminants,
minimizing contaminant agglomeration and fighting free radicals
to keep this cancer from forming in your engine.
run poorly, pollute and don't last. They cause system
failures in engines, compressors and gearbox systems that
dramatically increase downtime, increase operating costs and
reduce equipment life. Clean lubrication systems, on the other
hand, require less maintenance, produce more energy, use fuel
more efficiently, increase equipment service life and run
lubricants not only resist oxidation and sludge formation,
they can help clean existing deposits in neglected engines
due to superior detergency. With modern engines and equipment
demanding higher-quality lubricants, it's good to know AMSOIL
synthetic lubricants are formulated to protect against sludge
in the toughest operating conditions. Just like we all want
to stay healthy so we can live long and purposeful lives,
we want to keep sludge from forming in our engines so they
can do the same! Published, AMSOIL Magazine 08/15.
AMSOIL Signature Series
Synthetic Motor Oil
AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic
Motor Oils are formulated to meet the latest API SN Resource
Conserving and ILSAC GF-5 industry specifications. AMSOIL
Signature Series Oils include 0W-20, 0W-30, 5W-30 and 10W-30
and represent the very best motor oils AMSOIL has to offer,
allowing motorists to take advantage of maximum extended
drain intervals. AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor
Oils are recommended for drain intervals of up to 25,000
miles/one year, whichever comes first (15,000 miles/one
year in severe service conditions).
here for more information
Synthetic Motor Oils offer the longest drain intervals
on the market, unsurpassed protection and performance that
effectively extends equipment life and improved fuel economy,
saving customers money at the pump and reducing the nation's
dependence on foreign oil.

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
