Mobil Gargoyle Arctic SHC 234

Gargoyle Arctic SHC 234

Gargoyle Arctic SHC 200 is a line of fully synthetic, supreme performance lubricants designed for use in refrigeration compressors and heat pumps. With their naturally high shear stable viscosity index and low temperature fluidity, they are able to perform in severe service conditions beyond the capabilities of conventional mineral oils. Their solubility and miscibility with refrigerants is low, resulting in higher film thickness in the presence of refrigerants under pressure and reduced shaft seal leakage. Their stability and low volatility eliminates “light end stripping” which can occur with conventional mineral oils.

Advantages and Potential Benefits:

  1. Long service life reduces replacement costs, minimises downtime and increases productivity
  2. Excellent protection against wear of compressors to extend life
  3. Reduced wear of bearings
  4. Reduced formation of lacquer and deposit reduces shaft seal leakage and extends filter life
  5. Low volatility prevents viscosity build-up and reduces oil consumption
  6. Outstanding seal life reduces leakage, oil consumption and contamination ingress reduce maintenance costs
  7. Optimum operating efficiency


  1. Commercial, industrial, heat pump applications and marine refrigeration systems
  2. Reciprocating and rotary compressor designs
  3. Recommended for use with the following refrigerants: ammonia and carbon dioxide
