Air compressor oil

Do you mean 10W-30 or do you mean it can be SAE10 to SAE30?

I have never seen a multi-grade rating on an oil defined or labeled specifically as a 'compressor oil'.

What type of compressor is this? A shop or industrial or speciality, piston or rotary? Standard air compressor or industrial gas of some type?

AMSOIL has 5 different viscosities of compressor oils available, all are rated as single viscosity without a multi-viscosity rating. However they all carry a very high viscosity index (around 135) which means they will perform exceptionally well in the cold specification, however they haven't been rated (tested) and labeled multigrade.

The most common is our ISO 100/SAE 40 Piston Compressor Oil (the most common specified for most piston/shop compressors) (data sheet for this and the others are on this page). The ISO 46/SAE 20 and the ISO 100/SAE 40 are available in quarts, 5 gallon pails and drums, the 10, 30 and 50 are not packaged in quarts.
