Storage and handling: Best practices and guidelines for marine lubricants

Features and Benefits

  • Outstanding thermal / oxidation stability help to provide up to three times oil drain interval versus a leading synthetic compressor oil and reduce maintenance downtime
  • Excellent varnish and sludge control helps to deliver cleanliness and extended compressor oil life
  • High performance synthetic base stocks with high viscosity index enables wide temperature range capability and effective lubrication at high temperatures
  • High load carrying capability protects equipment and extends life, helps minimize unexpected downtime and extend service periods
  • Exceptional resistance to rusting and corrosion, very good antiwear, demulsibility, foam control and air release and multi-metal compatibility
  • Excellent water separability helps reduce carryover to downstream equipment, reduce sludge formation in crankcases and discharge lines, helps reduce blockage of coalescers, coolers and less potential for emulsion formation

Applications

  • Mobil SHC Rarus Series are primarily for rotary screw and vane air compressor, very effective in screw type compressors with oil injection cooling; compressors with a history of excess oil degradation, poor valve performance or deposit formation
  • Compressors operating under severe conditions, particularly effective for continuous high temperature operation with discharge temperatures up to 200ºC
  • Compressor systems with critical gears and bearings
  • Not for air compressors used in breathing air applications
  • Compatible with all metals used in compressor construction and with conventional mineral oil-based air compressor oils but mixture with other oils may detract from the total performance capability
