Mobil Gargoyle Arctic SHC 200 Series lubricants from Acculube are fully synthetic, superior performance lubricants, for refrigeration compressors and heat pumps. They are formulated from wax-free, synthesized hydrocarbon polyalphaolefin (PAO) fluids, which have outstanding resistance to thermal/oxidative degradation.
With their naturally high shear stable viscosity indexes and low temperature fluidity, they perform in severe service conditions that are beyond the capabilities of conventional mineral oils. Their solubility and miscibility with commonly used refrigerants is low, resulting in higher film thickness in the presence of refrigerants under pressure. This can help to reduce shaft seal leakage. Their stability and low volatility characteristics reduces the "light end stripping" which can occur with conventional mineral oils. Mobil Gargoyle Arctic SHC 200 Series lubricants may help reduce frictional losses and improve machine operating efficiencies.
