Product Description

Mobil Gas Compressor Oil is a premium quality, high performance, synthetic gas compressor lubricant based on poly-alkylene glycol. It is primarily intended for use in gas compressors for hydrocarbon and chemical gases where the crankcases and bearings operate in a gas filled atmosphere. It is particularly suitable for marine service on vessels carrying liquefied gas cargoes. It also has application in general industry where problems with oil and gas solubility issues have resulted in less than satisfactory equipment performance. Compared with conventional mineral oil, Mobil Gas Compressor Oil has a lower gas solubility and consequently resists dilution and has improved viscosity control which results in additional protection against wear, improved efficiency and reduced foaming.

Features and Benefits

Mobil Gas Compressor Oil is a speciality synthetic product developed to reduce the problems resulting from gas dissolving in the lubricant and causing problems with wear, sealing, increased maintenance and frequent oil changes.
