Mobil Rarus 424, 425, 426, 427, 429
The Mobil Rarus™ 400 Series is a line of premium performance ashless air compressor lubricants designed to meet the stringent requirements of the major compressor manufacturers. They are formulated with high quality mineral base-oils and a high performance additive system designed to provide exceptional equipment protection and reliability for compressors operating under mild to severe conditions
They provide excellent wear protection and the ability to reduce maintenance costs through minimising equipment problems and downstream deposits and carryover. Because of their high FZG Ratings, the Mobil Rarus 400 Series make outstanding lubricants for compressor systems employing gears and bearings making them an excellent selection for crankcases as well as cylinder lubricants.
The use of the Mobil Rarus 400 Series oils can result in cleaner compressors and lower deposits compared to conventional mineral oils, resulting in longer running periods between maintenance intervals. Their excellent oxidation and thermal stability safely allow extended life capability while controlling sludge and deposit formation. They possess outstanding anti-wear and corrosion protection, which enhances equipment life and performance.
The Mobil Rarus 400 Series oils are recommended for single and multistage air compressors. They are particularly effective for continuous high temperature operation. The maximum compressed air temperature, according to DIN 51506, is 220 °C. They are suitable for reciprocating and rotary type machines with the lower viscosity grades mainly used in rotary compressors. Rarus 400 Series oils are recommended for units with a history of excess oil degradation, poor valve performance or deposit formation. They are compatible with all metals used in compressor construction and with mineral-oil compatible elastomers used in seals, O-rings and gaskets.
Mobil Rarus 400 Series oils are not intended or recommended for use in air compressors for breathing applications.
The following types of compressors have shown excellent performance with the Mobil Rarus 400 Series oils:
-Reciprocating air compressor crankcases and cylinders
-Rotary screw compressors
-Rotary vane compressors
-Axial and centrifugal compressors
-Compressor systems with critical gears and bearings
-Compressors used in stationary and mobile applications
