(product code AM2110)
Non-solvent-based cleaning agent that assists in sludge and varnish removal from wind turbine gearboxes filled with Castrol Optigear A 320 gear oil. Does not harm seals or internal coatings when used in accordance with AMSOIL guidelines.
(product code AM1194)
A cost-effective ISO 320 viscosity extreme-pressure (EP) flushing oil designed for flushing contaminants from wind turbine gearboxes during oil changes. Contains chemistry similar to AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube, ensuring compatibility if a small amount is left in the system.
(product code HVH)
AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Viscosity Hydraulic Oil's blend of high-viscosity-index base oils and performance additives provides all-season protection and reliable operation in all types of hydraulic systems.
(product code AWH)
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 Power Transmission EP Gear Lube is designed with extreme-pressure (EP) additives and shear-stable synthetic base oils that exhibit excellent viscosity retention. As a result, micropitting and scuffing wear is minimized.
AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube resists foaming to deliver the correct engineered fluid film thickness, which reduces premature gear and bearing failure and results in gears and bearings lasting as designed.
Competitor's oils are known to cause foaming. When foam travels through the heavily loaded areas between gear teeth, the air bubbles can collapse and allow metal-to-metal contact, resulting in accelerated wear.

Water is one of the biggest contributors to gearbox failure. It can cause sludge formation, additive drop-out, viscosity loss and filter plugging. Throughout a five-year field study, AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube demonstrated a low five-year average of 92 ppm water for maximum lubricant effectiveness and component life.
AMSOIL Synthetic Power Transmission EP Gear Lube is easily filtered using either 5- or 10-micron full-flow oil filters and is also recommended for use with 3-micron by-pass filters.
