Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series 

Mobil Rarus SHC™  1026

Turbo Charger and Air Compressor Lubricant

Mobil Rarus SHC 1026, part of the 1020 Series, is an ultra-high performance synthetic oil for use in arduous rotary compressor and independent turbo charger systems. Mobil Rarus SHC 1026 offers performance advantages that mineral oils cannot match and is designed to enable overall problem-free operation, lower maintenance costs and a safe working environment.

Mobil Rarus SHC 1026 is formulated with an advanced base oil and a proprietary additive system that ensures exceptional resistance to oxidation and thermal degradation, enabling it to provide outstanding protection and reliability. Its exceptional cleanliness and stability characteristics at high temperatures reduce problems with deposit formation and allow for extended oil-drain intervals, reducing the need for frequent maintenance.

The Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series oils are primarily intended for rotary screw and vane compressors. They are particularly effective for continuous high temperature operation with discharge temperatures up to 200º C. Rarus SHC 1020 Series oils are recommended for units with a history of excess oil degradation, poor valve performance or deposit formation. They are compatible with all metals used in compressor construction and with conventional mineral oil-based air compressor oils but admixture with other oils may detract from the total performance capability.

Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series oils are not recommended for air compressors used in breathing air applications and should not be used in one-stage compressors operating at pressures above 90 psi.

The following types of compressor applications have shown excellent performance with the Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series oils:

  • Primarily recommended for rotary screw and vane air compressor
  • Very effective in screw type compressors with oil injection cooling
  • Units operating under severe conditions
  • Multistage units with a history of excessive oil degradation from mineral oil-based products
  • Compressor systems with critical gears and bearings
  • Compressors used in stationary and mobile applications
