ExxonMobil Launches Landmark Gear and Circulating Oil – Mobil SHC™ Elite
24 July 2019
Breakthrough synthetic lubricant offers class-leading performance benefits to manufacturing plants
· Mobil SHC™ Elite performs at temperatures up to 150°C in intermittent service
· Advanced gear and circulating oils can extend oil drain intervals by up to 12 times1, reducing maintenance costs and enhancing safety
· Offers up to a 3.6% energy efficiency benefit versus mineral oils2
ExxonMobil is introducing Mobil SHC™ Elite, a breakthrough synthetic gear and bearing circulating oil for general manufacturing applications. The lubricant’s advanced formulation can help protect equipment operating at extreme temperatures, while increasing energy efficiency and extending oil drain intervals.
Extensive testing shows that Mobil SHC™ Elite can deliver double the oil life3 of traditional synthetic products and up to 12 times1 the oil life of mineral products. It can also help protect equipment operating at temperatures up to 150°C in intermittent service, making it is ideally suited for use in a range of general manufacturing equipment, including blowers, and screw or reciprocating compressors.
The advanced synthetic lubricant is specifically formulated to deliver excellent wear protection and oxidation resistance without any of the compatibility challenges often associated with glycol-based products used in high temperature applications.
In addition, Mobil SHC™ Elite has also demonstrated an enhanced torque ratio, enabling it to deliver a 3.6%2 energy efficiency improvement when compared with conventional mineral oils.
“Protecting heavily loaded manufacturing equipment from high in-service temperatures can be a major challenge for industrial operators,” said Emre Noyan, industrial marketing manager at ExxonMobil. “Mobil SHC™ Elite’s extended oil life, wide temperature range performance and energy efficiency improvement can help operators increase uptime and cut costs – giving them a competitive edge.”
Mobil SHC™ Elite has already received approval for its proven performance from leading gearbox manufacturers including Siemens, whose FLENDER gear units depend on effective lubrication to ensure reliability in intense operating environments.
