Mobil EAL Arctic™ Series

Environmental compatibility and excellent performance are important factors when choosing a synthetic refrigerant oil. Learn how our Mobil EAL Arctic™ Series oils meet these requirements.

Our Mobil EAL Arctic™ Series synthetic refrigerant oils are designed for refrigeration compressors and systems requiring ozone-friendly HFC refrigerants. These Environmental Awareness Lubricants (EAL) are formulated to provide:

  • Improved evaporator cleanliness
  • Reduced compressor wear
  • Excellent low temperature fluidity
  • High system efficiency and proper oil return in refrigeration system designs

The Mobil EAL™ brand of refrigeration lubricants is recognized around the world for excellent performance and environmental compatibility.

Features and Benefits

Mobil EAL Arctic Series Lubricants are recognised and appreciated around the world for their excellent performance with a wide range of refrigerants and operating conditions. Mobil EAL Arctic Series was designed to complement the new generation of ozone-friendly and lower Global Warming refrigerants mandated by the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols followed by even more stringent regional agreements such European F-gas regulation. A key factor in the development of Mobil EAL Arctic Series of lubricants was our close contacts with key compressor OEMs and system designers to ensure that our product offerings will provide exceptional performance in a wide range of applications.

This work in combination with our lab testing has helped confirm the exceptional performance of the Mobil EAL Arctic Series. This cooperative work allowed an optimum design of synthetic POE molecules for each viscosity grade in the series and the development of an additive package to meet the stability and compatibility requirements for refrigeration applications.

Applications

Application considerations: Mobil EAL Arctic Series oils are hygroscopic and care must be taken to avoid moisture absorption during handling. Packages should be tightly closed when not in use, and small packaging preferred. Product should not be transferred to plastic containers that may allow moisture ingress.

Mobil EAL Arctic Series are recommended for refrigeration systems where HFC, HFO and HFO/FHC blends refrigerants are used. The application range is wide from Domestic/Tertiary applications (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning HVAC) to commercial applications (food conservation, transportation) and industrial applications (food processing, freezing).

Mobil EAL Arctic Series must not be used in ammonia systems (NH3 / R-717).
