Mobil's award winning technology from SHC Rarus Series'
17th Jan 2017
Mobil’s revolutionary SHC Rarus Series oil has once again returned to the spot light, capturing the attention of the Thomas Edison Patent award in recognition of its ground breaking technology.
Designed specifically for severe duty rotary screw and vane air compressors, Mobil SHC Rarus Series synthetic air compressor oils have been shown to significantly extend oil life with drain intervals lasting 3 times longer than existing products, whilst providing outstanding equipment protection.
ExxonMobil R&D experts Angela Galiano-Roth, Jim Carey and Gary Dudley, were honoured to receive the Thomas Edison patent award for their work in developing the lubricant which utilises alkylated naphthalene as the primary base stock.
With initial test results displaying lubricant lifetime lasting up to 24,000 hours, it is no surprise that the revolutionary synthetic air compressor oils have been met with such praise as countless customers are set to benefit from significant cost reductions and productivity gains.

Mobil SHC Rarus 46 helps petro-chemical plant triple oil drain intervals saving up to $5,780 over three years.
A Texas-based petro-chemical manufacturer operates two Quincy air compressors to help power operations. These units are lubricated with a
competitive synthetic compressor oil with an average oil drain interval of 8,000 hours (12 months). In an effort to optimize production efficiency, the company approached ExxonMobil engineers to provide a lubricant solution capable of further extending oil drain intervals while increasing compressor reliability.
