AMSOIL DIESEL OILS ARE UNMATCHED IN PERFORMANCE

AMSOIL, the leader in Synthetic Lubrication, doesn’t just talk about their products but they have the Statistics to prove their claim how AMSOIL products provide better protection, performance and save the customer money. Over-the-road Diesel Truck tests show using AMSOIL Diesel Oils give a 6.54% improvement in fuel mileage thus saving the owner/operators much on diesel fuel costs. Truck owners who have moved from using Chevron Delo 400, Shell Rotella-T, Cummings Premium Blue to AMSOIL Diesel Oils realize that their hard working Diesel Tractors have much lower operating temperatures, less break down of the oil, less sludge, varnish and gum deposits and their drain intervals are extended at least three times longer than using the others products. Also with over-the-road trucking, a truck could be in Florida today with high heat temperatures and in cold country the next day. They have found they DO NOT have to leave engines running all night to keep the engine lubricated. They can shut down for the night and the next morning have instant oil pressure because of the Low Pour Point of AMSOIL products. In tests done with a Cummings 400-D Big Cam, temperatures went from 290 in the transmission down to 210 using AMSOIL products. Less friction, less drag, less heat, less wear equates to more torque thus more horsepower. Engines DO NOT HAVE TO WORK as hard using AMSOIL Products.  And with Oil Analysis, drain intervals could be extended greater than the three-time interval or petroleum.

AMSOIL Synthetic Chain Case & Gear Oil

SAE 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCF)

Synthetic Chain Case Oil (TCC)Long-Lasting Performance for ATVs and Snowmobiles

AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil provides superior protection and performance for enclosed chains and gears found in snowmobiles, ATVs and general equipment. Formulated with extreme-pressure additives, it helps extend chain and gear life through increased wear protection. AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil repels water, while also inhibiting rust, oxidation and foam. Its low pour point ensures superior low-temperature starting, reducing drag to deliver maximum power.

 
Designed Specifically for Chaincases & Gearcases
To reduce initial costs, some enthusiasts use automatic transmission fluid or gear lube in their snowmobile and ATV chaincases and gearcases. Neither fluid, however, is engineered for these applications. Automatic transmission fluid is a hydraulic fluid formulated without the extreme-pressure additives needed to provide enhanced wear protection, leaving gears and chains vulnerable to premature failure. Automotive gear lube is designed to lubricate hypoid gears and is too thick for proper chain and gear lubrication in powersports applications, impairing circulation and leading to wear and decreased energy efficiency.AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil is specifically engineered to meet the demands of enclosed chaincases and gearcases, providing extreme-pressure protection and low-temperature fluidity for superior performance and protection.

Long-Lasting Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & Gear Oil is a 100 percent synthetic formulation that resists shear and chemical breakdown better than conventional fluids. Its superior base oils and additives provide long-lasting protection.

Extendable Spout for Easy Application
Chaincase and gearcase fill holes can be difficult to access, especially on snowmobiles. each bottle of AMSOIL Synthetic Chaincase & gear Oil comes packaged with an extendable spout to provide easy, clean application. Prior to use, fully extend the spout, thread onto bottle and remove stopper.

  • Extreme-pressure additives promote long chain and gear life
  • Inhibits rust and oxidation
  • Low-temperature fluidity ensures maximum energy efficiency
  • Lasts longer than conventional oils

AMSOIL SYNTHETIC GEAR LUBE OUTPERFORMS VALVOLINE GEAR LUBE

Overview

AMSOIL submitted its 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube (FGR) and Valvoline 75W-90 Gear Lube to an independent laboratory for quality comparison tests. The gear lubes were tested according to ASTM testing procedures in several critical performance areas, including oxidation resistance, viscosity retention and cold temperature fluidity. Oxidation resistance was measured using the L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test, viscosity retention was measured using the KRL Shear Stability Test and cold temperature fluidity was measured using the Brookfield Viscosity Test. Additional load carrying, wear, extreme pressure and scoring protection tests were performed exclusively on AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube using the L-37 High Torque Axle Test and the L-42 High Speed Axle Test.

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test

-Test Conditions

The L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test measures a lubricant’s rate of deterioration under severe oxidation conditions. A measured sample of test lubricant is placed in a special gear case with two spur gears and a copper catalyst strip. The gears are driven at 1,725 rpm at 163°C for a 50-hour duration, while air is bubbled through the sample.

Viscosity increase, deposits not soluble in pentane or toluene, carbon varnish and sludge deposits are measured upon test completion. Test specifications are listed below.

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test Specifications

  API GL-5 API MT-1/SAE J-2360/MIL-PRF-2105E/Mack GO-J Mack GO-J+
Test Conditions 50 hours @ 163°C 50 hours @ 163°C 100 hours @ 163°C
% Viscosity Rise 100 Max 100 Max 100 Max

L-60-1 Thermal Oxidation Stability Test Results

  AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Valvoline 75W-90 Valvoline 75W-90
Test Conditions 100 hours @ 163°C 50 hours @ 163°C 100 hours @ 163°C
% Viscosity Rise 25.17 17.50 38.50
% Pentane Insolubles 0.20 0.87 1.17
% Toluene Insolubles 0.13 1.11 0.99
Carbon Varnish Rating 8.0 7.2 5.9
Sludge Rating 9.5 9.4 9.4

-Test Results

Because AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube is a premium lubricant designed for extended drain service, the test was allowed to continue for 100 straight hours, double the standard test length. The Valvoline 75W-90 was run at both the standard 50-hour test length and the double 100-hour test length. Test results indicate AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube outperformed Valvoline at both test lengths.

Even at double the standard test length, AMSOIL 75W-90 scored almost four times better than industry test specifications in the area of viscosity increase, while also greatly exceeding specifications in all areas of the test.

KRL Shear Stability Test

-Test Conditions

It is essential that high-quality gear lubes resist shear to ensure adequate oil film thickness and protection against friction and wear. The KRL Shear Stability Test is used to determine the mechanical shear stability of lubricants containing polymer. Mandatory under the SAE J-306 gear oil standard, the KRL Shear Stability Test makes use of a taper roller bearing in order to shear the test fluid and determine the permanent drop in viscosity caused by the mechanical stress under practical conditions. Under the specifications of SAE J- 306, the measured viscosity at 100°C (212°F) of an SAE 90 gear oil must exceed 13.5 cSt after 20 hours of testing.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube easily exceeded SAE J-306 specifications following the 20-hour test length and was allowed to continue for a total of 192 straight hours, almost 10 times longer than the standard test length. Even after this extended test, AMSOIL 75W-90 lost only 0.40 percent of its original viscosity, making it 99.6 percent shear stable.

Valvoline 75W-90 Gear Lube, on the other hand, failed the test during the initial 20-hour testing period, losing 14 percent of its original viscosity.

Bookfield Viscosity Test

-Test Conditions

The Brookfield Viscosity Test (ASTM 0-2983) is used to determine the internal fluid-friction of a lubricant during cold temperature operation. The lubricant sample is chilled in a -40°C (-40° F) air bath for 16 hours, and a Brookfield viscometer determines the torque required to shear the lubricant. The lower the cold temperature viscosity (measured in centipoise), the better the cold temperature protection. ASTM specifications dictate that 75W-90 gear oils measure less than 150,000 cP at test completion.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube easily passed the Brookfield Viscosity Test, measuring 88,000 cP at test completion, 42 percent less than test limits. The superior cold temperature properties of AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Lube ensure quicker oil flow, enhanced component protection and improved fuel efficiency.

Many conventional lubricants fail to pass the Brookfield Viscosity Test due to the paraffinic (wax) content in their base oils. Valvoline Gear Lube passed the test at 130,000 cP, only 13 percent lower than test limits.

1-37 High Torque Axle Test

-Test Conditions

The L-37 High Torque Axle Test is used to evaluate a gear lubricant’s load-carrying, wear and extreme pressure characteristics in hypoid gears operating under both high-speed/low-torque and low-speed/high-torque conditions. A Dana Model 60 hypoid gear axle is used with either coated or uncoated drive gear and pinion to drive two dynamometers from an eight-cylinder, 5.7-liter gasoline engine. With the axle filled with the test lubricant, the high-speed/low-torque test is performed for 100 minutes, with the gears visually assessed afterwards. Next, the low-speed/high-torque test is run for 24 hours, followed by a thorough inspection of the gears. Performance relative to API GL-5 and MIL-PRF-2105E specifications is assessed based on tooth surface rippling, ridging, pitting and wear, deposits and discoloration.

-Test Results

Testing on AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil was conducted using uncoated gear and pinion. The AMSOIL lubricant passed on all counts and showed little to no rippling, ridging, pitting or deposits, indicating that AMSOIL 75W-90 provides superior protection and performance under extreme pressure conditions.

L-42 High Speed Axle Test

-Test Conditions

The L-42 High Speed Axle Test evaluates the antiscoring characteristics of a gear lubricant operating under high-speed and shock-loading conditions. A Spicer Model 44-1 hypoid gear axle is driven by a 5.7 liter, V8 gasoline engine with a four-speed truck transmission and two high-inertia dynamometers and hard accelerated to 100 mph. The axle is periodically shock-loaded through a dynamometer to simulate high shock-loading conditions. The axle is accelerated through the gears to 1,050 r/min and decelerated to 530 r/min. This cycle is repeated five times, followed by 10 shock loadings. In order to meet API GL-5 and MIL-PRF-2105E gear oil specifications, scoring must be equal to or better than gears tested with a reference oil.

-Test Results

AMSOIL 75W-90 Synthetic Gear Oil easily passed the L-42 High Speed Axle Test, receiving a significantly better rating than the reference oil and leaving little to no scoring on the ring and pinion.
