Mobil EAL Arctic Series are high performance Environmental Awareness Lubricants (EAL), which are fully synthetic products specifically designed for the lubrication of refrigeration compressors and systems using ozone-friendly HFC refrigerants. (HFCs are non-chlorine products that replace chlorine-containing refrigerants on the world market). It is also recommended in suitably miscible carbon dioxide applications for correct oil return to the compressor (usually in piston type applications). Mobil EAL Arctic Series oils are formulated from specially synthesized polyol esters (POEs) and a unique additive system to provide exceptional lubrication, wear protection, chemical and thermal stability, and hydrolytic stability. It is miscible with HFC refrigerants and has well defined viscosity / temperature / pressure relationships with a wide range of HFCs. The performance of the Mobil EAL Arctic Series is well documented with HFCs in a wide range of cooling and air conditioning systems and is used by many major compressor and system manufacturers around the world.
Mobil EAL Arctic Series is recommended for use in home and commercial refrigeration and air conditioning systems where HFC or carbon dioxide coolers are used.
Features and Benefits
Mobil EAL Arctic Series oils provide the following features and potential benefits.
The Mobil EAL lubricant brand is recognized and appreciated around the world for their environmental compatibility and excellent performance. Mobil EAL Arctic Series products were designed by our research scientists to complement the next generation of ozone-friendly refrigerants required by the Montreal Protocol and following worldwide agreements. The development of these products symbolizes our commitment to consistently using advanced technology to deliver superior lubricants. A key factor in the development of Mobil EAL Arctic Series lubricants was our close contact between our scientists and key compressor OEMs and system designers to ensure that our product offerings deliver exceptional performance in a wide variety of applications.
These studies, done in conjunction with our lab tests, helped confirm the outstanding performance of Mobil EAL Arctic Series lubricants. This collaboration has enabled our scientists to design the most suitable synthetic POE structures for each viscosity grade in the product line and to develop an additive package to meet the stability and compatibility requirements in cooling applications.
Application guidelines: Mobil EAL Arctic Series oils are hygroscopic and care should be taken not to absorb moisture. Packages not in use should be tightly closed and small packages should be preferred. The product should not be transferred to plastic containers where moisture can penetrate.
Mobil EAL Arctic Series oils are recommended for refrigeration systems using HFC or carbon dioxide coolants. Special applications include:
Household refrigeration such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and heat pumps
Commercial refrigeration applications such as business, shopping mall and hotel air conditioning and refrigerated transportation
Industrial applications such as food preparation and freezing, and cryogenic applications
