Product Description

Mobil SHC 500 Series oils are exceptional performance hydraulic oils formulated from synthesised, wax-free hydrocarbon base fluids combined with a carefully engineered super-stabilised additive system. They are exceptionally high quality, wide-temperature, shear-stable hydraulic oils with controlled low-temperature pumpability properties and maximised anti-wear protection for high-pressure vane, piston and gear pumps. The products exhibit very high viscosity indexes contributing to their excellent low and high temperature performance making them an excellent choice for equipment that is subjected to a wide range of start-up and operating temperatures. The Mobil SHC 500 Series oils exhibit outstanding shear stability allowing their use in high-pressure, high-temperature operating environments for extended periods of time without the loss of critical lubrication characteristics.

The Mobil SHC 500 Series oils help provide long oil/filter life and optimum equipment protection, which can reduce both maintenance and product disposal costs. They were developed in conjunction with the major OEMs to meet the stringent requirements of severe hydraulic systems using high pressure, high output pumps as well as handling the critical requirements of other hydraulic system components such as close clearance servo-valves and the high accuracy numerically controlled (NC) machine tools. These products meet some of the most rigorous performance requirements of a wide range of hydraulic system and component manufacturers, using various multi-metallurgy designs, ensuring a single product with exceptional performance characteristics in a wide range of equipment. They are designed to work with systems operating under severe conditions where high levels of anti-wear and film strength protection are needed, yet they are formulated to work where non-anti-wear hydraulic oils are generally recommended.

* The energy efficiency design is a trademark of Exxon Mobil Corporation Energy efficiency relates solely to the fluid performance when compared with ExxonMobil’s standard hydraulic fluids. The technology used allows up to 6 percent increase in hydraulic pump efficiency compared with Mobil DTE 20 Series when tested in standard hydraulic applications. The energy efficiency claim for this product is based on test results on the use of the fluid conducted in accordance with applicable industry standards and protocols. Efficiency improvements will vary based on operating conditions and applications.

Features and Benefits

The Mobil SHC 500 Series hydraulic oils exhibit outstanding low and high temperature performance helping to provide an extra margin of equipment protection above and beyond the capabilities of comparable mineral oil-based products. Their excellent oxidation resistance allows extension of oil and filter change intervals while assuring exceptionally clean systems and trouble-free operation. Their high level of anti-wear properties and excellent film strength characteristics result in exceptional equipment performance that helps prevent unplanned equipment breakdowns, and maximize equipment uptime, which can enable potential improvements in production capacity. Their controlled demulsibility permits the oils to work well in systems contaminated with small amounts of water yet readily separate large amounts of water.
