To combat high thermal exposure of the oil, our scientists chose proprietary synthetic base oils for Mobil SHC 824 because of their exceptional thermal/oxidative resistance capabilities. We chose specific additives that would maximize the benefits of the synthetic base oils to provide exceptional oil life and deposit control and resistance to thermal and chemical degradation, as well as the balance of the performance features. The synthetic base oil also provides outstanding low temperature fluidity characteristics unmatched by mineral turbine oils and is a key benefit for remote, low temperature ambient applications.

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Outstanding high thermal/oxidative stability and deposit control High level of resistance to heat soak-back after turbine shutdown
Less deposit build-up and improved reliability and lower maintenance costs
Long oil charge life and lower product costs
Excellent low temperature fluidity Reliable flow and lubrication during cold starts, even at very low temperatures
Naturally high Viscosity Index Improved equipment protection at high temperatures
Very good resistance to foaming and good air release Efficient system operation and less un-planned stoppages
Excellent antiwear performance Excellent equipment protection and reduced equipment replacement costs


Mobil SHC 824 is designed specifically to meet the needs of the most severe industrial gas turbine applications and ancillary equipment. Specific applications include:

  • Severe stationary gas turbine applications, particularly units under 3,000hp, for stand-by power generation
