When you operate equipment like wind turbines, you pull out all of the stops when it comes to lubrication. No longer are the existing lubricants that are offered by the majors good enough. The wind turbine industry demanded an agile lubricant provider that could address all of the problems that these machines present. AMSOIL is that provider. In the past 10 years, AMSOIL has gone from the lubricant provider to a handful of wind turbines in the Midwest United States to now being the number one supplier on 6 continents! This was accomplished through a ton of hard work, dedication and the visionary leadership and spirit that is AMSOIL. It wasn't done through marketing programs or catchy slogans. It was accomplished by partnering with the industry and providing the absolute best lubricants available, Period. With the cost of replacing a gearbox running somewhere in the neighborhood of half a million dollars, producing the absolute best lubricants is a must! Here is a cool little fact: EVERY WIND TURBINE OPERATOR THAT HAS USED AMSOIL LUBRICANTS HAS NEVER CHNAGED TO SOMETHING ELSE!! ONCE THEY USE AMSOIL, THEY STAY WITH AMSOIL!
This same attitude and attention to the details is what goes into every single product AMSOIL makes! From our synthetic air tool oil, to the PTN 320 lubricant that the wind turbines use. AMSOIL is constantly looking for ways to improve, always looking to solve every problem. Constantly making it better! Click here to see all that AMSOIL has to offer.
One of the main causes of viscosity breakdown is shearing. Mechanical shearing occurs when 2 thin layers of oil move in opposite directions. One area where this commonly occurs is between the cylinder wall and the piston. Once viscosity is lost, the thin layer of oil that keeps the metal parts from touching begins to disappear, allowing metal to metal contact and accelerated wear. The problem becomes even worse when the subject engine has had modifications done to turn up the power! I know a lot of people who have spent many hours and dollars to produce HUGE amounts of power. Often overlooked, but one of the least expensive items that should be on every gear head's list of must do's is using the absolute best motor oils available and AMSOIL is the best! Not only is AMSOIL superior to Mobil 1 in resisting viscosity breakdown, so are a few others. Check out our complete line here.

Want a better gear oil? There is none better then AMSOIL! With the proliferation of wind turbines across the world, AMSOIL has risen to the challenge and has become the number one choice for wind turbine gearbox protection across the globe.

Do you think the collective wind industry would trust these machines to a lubricant that isn't the absolute best they can get?? Think about it, the gear box in a wind turbine weighs over 30,000 pounds and is perched a couple hundred feet in the air. What do you suppose it costs to repair/replace a gearbox in one of these things? Using the absolute best there is is the only option for these machines! That same engineering and attention to detail goes into EVERY product AMSOIL has!
Compressors? We've got them protected, too!! You have invested a lot of money in your compressors. Whether it is in the back of your service truck or in your plant, you depend on it every hour of every day! Why would you use anything less than AMSOIL? See our full line of compressor oils here.
