The Mobil Rarus SHC™ 1020 Series is a line of supreme performance oils primarily intended for the lubrication of severe duty rotary screw and vane air compressors. They are particularly suited for severe service where mineral oil-based products are not meeting expectations such as in severe applications subjected to high final compression temperatures or where extended oil drain intervals are desired. They are formulated with design-specific wax-free synthetic hydrocarbon fluids and a high technology additive system that assures exceptional resistance to oxidation and thermal degradation far superior to mineral oil-based air compressor oils. They provide outstanding equipment protection and reliability for compressors operating under conditions where other air compressor oils are not meeting expectations. Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series provide excellent wear protection and outstanding resistance to oxidation and thermal degradation, greatly superior to mineral oils. Their unique formulation provides the ability to reduce maintenance costs through minimising equipment problems and downstream deposits and carryover. Their high viscosity index ensures effective lubrication at high temperatures.
Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series lubricants significantly reduce the potential for fires and explosions when compared to mineral oil-based products. They exhibit a virtual absence of deposit formation and high autogeneous ignition temperatures improving both performance and safety. Their exceptional water separating characteristics reduce problems with emulsion formation coalescers and filters reducing the need for frequent maintenance.
The use of the Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series oils can result in cleaner compressors and lower deposits compared to conventional mineral oils, resulting in longer running periods between maintenance intervals. Their excellent oxidation and thermal stability safely allow extended life capability while controlling sludge and deposit formation. They possess outstanding anti-wear and corrosion protection, which enhances equipment life and performance
