Mobil Zerice S Oils are premium quality synthetic refrigeration compressor lubricants based on alkyl benzenes, which due to their nature, have superior miscibility with hydrochlorofluorocarbon (R22). This allows them to be used in very low temperature applications, down to -60°C. In certain circumstances, they can also be used in compressors where ammonia acts as the refrigerating fluid.
Features, Advantages and Benefits
Relative to mineral and other synthetic lubricants, Mobil Zerice S has superior solubility with halocarbon refrigerants. This helps avoid the common problem of oil separation and congealing on the valve and heat transfer surfaces of the refrigeration system.
Additionally, Mobil Zerice S lubricants have very low pour and floc points which helps prevent harmful wax precipitation that can block expansion valves and heat transfer surfaces.
The synthetic nature of Mobil Zerice S lubricants provides excellent chemical stability which resists reaction with refrigerants, as well as high thermal stability which helps prevent oil breakdown.

Mobil Zerice S lubricants are recommended for all refrigeration compressor types: reciprocating or rotary screw. They are well suited for use with hydrochlorofluorocarbon refrigerants, and may also be suited for use with ammonia in certain equipment builders’ compressors. They should not be used with sulfur dioxide or R134A refrigerants. The specific viscosity grade should be selected in accordance with the compressor manufacturer's recommendations.
