Synthetic compressor lubricants
Mobil Zerice™ S Series oils are premium quality synthetic compressor lubricants designed for use in refrigeration and air conditioning applications with both reciprocating and rotary compressors.
Based on alkyl benzenes, they have superior miscibility with hydrochlorofluorocarbon (R22) and in certain situations can also be used in compressors where the refrigerant is ammonia.
Mobil Zerice S Series has superior solubility when used with halocarbon refrigerants compared with mineral lubricants.
The oils’ synthetic nature provides excellent chemical and thermal stability, allowing them to resist reactions with refrigerants as well as helping prevent oil breakdown. This in turn increases system efficiency.
Mobil Zerice S Series offers a range of advantages including:
Relative to mineral and other synthetic lubricants, Mobil Zerice S has superior solubility with halocarbon refrigerants. This helps avoid the common problem of oil separation and congealing on the valve and heat transfer surfaces of the refrigeration system.
Additionally, Mobil Zerice S lubricants have very low pour and floc points which helps prevent harmful wax precipitation that can block expansion valves and heat transfer surfaces.
The synthetic nature of Mobil Zerice S lubricants provides excellent chemical stability which resists reaction with refrigerants, as well as high thermal stability which helps prevent oil breakdown.
