Mobil Gargoyle Arctic SHC 226 E is a high-quality lubricant offering a superlative level of performance. It is intended for use with refrigeration compressors and heat pumps. The entirely synthetic formula is wax free and contains fluid hydrocarbon polyalphaolefin (PAO). This provides top level resistance to oxidation and degradation.
This oil is designed to perform even in the high demand circumstances that mineral formulas cannot stand up to. This product’s fluidity and high viscosity contribute to its performance.
When using this oil with refrigerants, low levels of miscibility and solubility apply, even under extreme conditions. This means less likelihood of shaft seal leaks, and the oil also displays increased film thickness.
The possibility of ‘light end stripping’ is reduced due to the lubricant’s impressive level of stability. The product thus results in less friction loss and the increased efficiency of machinery.
This Mobil oil is well suited to systems with extremely low evaporation temperatures. The formula is also ideal for those refrigeration compressors that work at incredibly high temperatures.
The lubricant is compatible with compressors and the refrigerants they use, including carbon dioxide, ammonia and CFC refrigerants including R-12. It can also be used with other refrigerants, apart from sulphur dioxide.
This high-quality oil can even be used alongside mineral-based lubricants, although this might detract from this product’s superb performance level.
