Synthetic Diesel Engine Oil
Mobilgard 1 SHC by ExxonMobil is a supreme performance, synthetic diesel engine oil specifically formulated to address the needs of high power, distillate fueled diesel engines. It provides unsurpassed lubrication including long drain capability and extended engine life for today's marine diesel engines operating in severe applications.
The unsurpassed performance capabilities of Mobilgard 1 SHC are the result of extensive cooperative development work with major equipment builders combined with the latest engine lubrication engineering. It is especially effective in extreme temperature applications. A true SAE 40 grade lubricant, on very hot engine parts, it provides stronger lubrication film strength than most SAE 50 engine oils. At low temperatures, it flows like an SAE 20W product and thus provides outstanding start-up reliability and wear protection at extreme low temperatures as low as -54ºC.
Revolutionary load carrying additives also make Mobilgard 1 SHC an outstanding wide temperature range gear lubricant.
Features and Benefits
Modern high performance, low emission, diesel engines in severe-service applications significantly increase the demands on engine lubricants. Current engine designs are tighter, reducing oil consumption and resulting in less fresh oil make-up to replenish depleted additives. Top piston rings may be located higher bringing the oil film closer to the combustion chamber where temperatures increase thermal stress on the lubricant. Higher fuel injector pressure and retarded timing improve control of exhaust emissions, but also increase engine temperatures and increase soot loads in engines operating with exhaust gas re-circulation. Mobilgard 1 SHC can provide satisfactory lubrication at temperatures significantly higher than the upper limit for other extra high performance diesel engine oils. Its inherent viscosity is SAE 40 and on very hot engine components it resists oil film breakdown better than conventional SAE 50 lubricants. The synthetic chemistry and wax free nature also provides low temperature pumpability in comparison with a conventional SAE 20W lubricant. Mobilgard 1SHC is fully compatible with conventional oils.
Mobilgard 1 SHC has all the advantages of an SAE 40 weight oil without the higher oil consumption inherent in multigrade oils that use very light base stocks to achieve low temperature performance. Because of the unique molecular structure of the advanced base stocks used, combined with a highly responsive additive system, Mobilgard 1 SHC is not as volatile in the high temperature ring-belt area of the pistons in turbocharged engines. It reduces oil consumption and wear, while improving fuel economy.
Mobilgard 1 SHC is also environmentally friendly in that it can significantly extend oil drain intervals beyond conventional oils which reduces waste oil disposal. In addition, the formulation is designed without the use of zinc and with low chlorine levels well below the most stringent regulations in effect today.
Key features and potential benefits include:
Mobilgard 1 SHC is recommended for use as a crankcase lubricant in medium and high speed diesel engines in severe marine service. It is especially suited to the needs of high power concentration engines where thermal stress and loading on the lubricant are severe, as well as for applications involving low-temperature and /or frequent start-up, rapid loading following rapid start-up, and abrupt shutdown after high speed operations.
