Mobil Compressor Oil 150 IR

Gas Compressor Cylinder Lubricant

MobilCompressor Oil 150 IR is a premium quality compounded lubricant specially developed for cylinder lubrication of gas compressors. Compressor Oil 150 IR is recommended by ExxonMobil for use in reciprocating compressors with separate cylinder lubrication systems operating on natural gas or other hydrocarbon gases. Mobil Compressor Oil 150 IR is formulated from high quality mineral base oil and selected additives to give excellent thermal and oxidative stability helping to minimize harmful carbon deposit formation on exhaust valves, pistons, rods and packings. This lubricant also has excellent film strength that resists wash-off by wet gases or hydrocarbons in the gas which may condense during compression.
