Synthetic Paper Machine Oil

Product Description

MOBIL PAPER MACHINE OIL S 220 is a high performance synthetic lubricant specifically designed for demanding industrial paper machine circulating systems. It is engineered to provide exceptional lubrication characteristics not attainable with conventional premium mineral oil-based fluids. MOBIL PAPER MACHINE OIL S 220 is formulated to provide excellent protection of gears and bearings operating under severe conditions. It has a very low pour point and a naturally high viscosity index (VI) which helps ensure good low temperature start-up while maintaining excellent viscosity characteristics at very high temperatures. The low traction coefficient and high viscosity index can help result in lower energy consumption and reduced component operating temperatures.


MOBIL PAPER MACHINE OIL S 220 is formulated with synthesized hydrocarbon fluid base oil technology and a proprietary additive system carefully balanced to attain high performance standards. This fluid permits the use of higher steam pressures, temperatures and machine speeds common in high output paper machines and calendar rolls. The outstanding hydrolytic stability and filterability assure excellent performance in the presence of water and the ability to retain effective filtration even at very fine filtration levels. It readily separates water and retains its colour characteristics for extended periods of operation under severe conditions.


Features and Benefits

The excellent performance capabilities of Mobil Paper Machine Oil S 220 in the area of wear protection, enhanced oxidation and chemical stability, effective rust and corrosion protection, colour stability and filterability not only prolong maintenance service intervals but improve machine performance and increase production capacity. This can result in less required maintenance and longer equipment life.



Advantages and Potential Benefits

Easier start-up and improved lubrication at cold startsVery good protection at elevated temperaturesBetter control of feed rates

Excellent Wear Protection

Improved bearing and gear performance

Outstanding Oxidation and Thermal Stability

Lower filter replacement costsCleaner systemsReduced system deposits

Effective Water Separation Properties

Allows easier removal of waterReduces formation of undesirable emulsions in systems

Excellent Filtration Properties

Helps to keep oil lines and flow control mechanisms free of depositsImproved oil flow and cooling performanceLowers filter replacement costs

Excellent Colour Stability

Ensuring flow meters can be easily monitored by eye so that the right flow rate is maintained to the bearings

High Level Rust and Corrosion Protection

Protects gears and bearings in wet environmentsProvides vapour space protection for areas of bearing and gear cavities above normally oil-wetted surfaces



     •  Lubrication of severe industrial paper machine circulating systems

     •  Application involving circulation systems operating over a wide temperature range

     •  Circulation systems lubricating gears and bearings

     •  Mobil Paper Machine Oil S 220 is particularly applicable for machines where it is essential for excellent colour stability to visually monitor the oil flow rate through flow meters
