Air Compressor Maintenance

I’ve noticed that my little 17 gallon/3 hp under the bench hotdog air compressor has been running for longer periods of time to fill the tank. I also noticed a nice sawdust/oil slurry forming on the tank where the pump sits.

It had been 5 years since I bought this second hand and completed the first service. I don’t have a way to track hours on the unit but with longer running fill times and an oil leak somewhere it seemed like time for a bit of maintenanceses . The oil change used AMSOIL Synthetic Compressor Oil (PCI) – in my case SAE 20 weight. as specified on the maintenance sticker.

Price Adjustment Coming in May

AMSOIL is implementing a minimal price adjustment in the U.S. and Canada in May.

Why are prices Increasing?

All costs are on the rise. Amsoils competitors have all issued multiple price increases to their distributors in the last 60 days due to the rising costs of additives, base oils, steel, plastics and freight. While we are working hard for you and our customers to keep pricing down, we are forced to adjust prices to keep up with rising costs. As always, these adjustments are made as minimal as possible.

Affected products are expected to increase by an average of 3 percent with some products increasing slightly less and others increasing slightly more.

Place your order before the end of April to ensure existing pricing.

AMSOIL Delays Canadian Price Increase Until July 1st

AMSOIL has refrained from adjusting Canadian prices for as long as possible, but action is being taken to offset the significant losses derived from increased raw-material costs and continued fluctuation in the exchange rate this year. The exchange rate between the Canadian and US dollars has been more volatile recently than at any time since 1929. All projections and expert advice predict some stability in the coming months. Barring any major fluctuations in the coming weeks AMSOIL expects the adjustment to be in the 9-10 percent range — with an average increase of 9.7 percent.
