Synthetic hydraulic oils

Advanced-technology Mobil SHC 500 Series hydraulic oils are designed to provide excellent wear protection for high-pressure vane, piston and gear pumps in a wide range of temperatures, helping to extend the life of machine components.

They help provide outstanding low- and high-temperature performance and equipment protection up to three times longer than comparable mineral oil-based products. They also deliver hydraulic efficiency and system cleanliness and durability. These capabilities can help decrease machine maintenance and extend oil drain intervals, potentially reducing energy consumption by up to 6.2% when compared with standard mineral hydraulic oil.

Features & Potential Benefits

• Helps extend service intervals
• Cleaner system and reduced close-tolerance valve sticking compared to conventional products
• Helps improve filterability
• Helps reduce wear of components
• Helps protect systems using various metallurgy
• Wide temperature range performance
• Helps to ensure equipment protection at cold start-up temperatures
• Helps protect system components at high operating temperatures
• Helps provide long oil and equipment life, which can extend filter life
• Helps prevent internal hydraulic system corrosion
• Helps reduce the negative effects of moisture in systems
• Helps provide corrosion protection of multi-metallurgy component designs
• Helps optimize inventory requirements
• One product can replace several helping to optimize inventory requirements and mitigate potential product misapplication
• Helps reduce foaming and it’s negative effects
• Provides systems protection and lubrication where small quantities of moisture are present
• Readily separates larger quantities of water
• Helps reduce system deposits and potential sludging
• Helps protect critical components such as servo-valves, improving system response and minimizing valve sticking

• Hydraulic systems prone to deposit build-up such as sophisticated Numerically Controlled (NC) machines, particularly where close clearance servo-valves are used
• Systems employing multi-metal component designs
• High pressure vane, piston and gear pumps
• Systems where cold start-up and / or very high operating temperatures are typical
• Where small amounts of water are unavoidable
• In systems containing gears and bearings
• Systems requiring a high degree of load-carrying capability and anti-wear protection
• Applications where thin oil-film corrosion protection is an asset such as in systems containing moisture
