ExxonMobile introduces an advanced industrial gear lubricant in an article from Rogtec Magazine:
ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation, announced the introduction of its new lineup of high-performance, fully-synthetic industrial gear oils, known as Mobil SHC Gear series. The new Mobil SHC Gear series has been formulated to help oil and gas companies operating in extreme environments to reduce unscheduled downtime and maximise productivity.
The latest addition to the Mobil SHC brand of high-performance synthetic lubricants, Mobil SHC Gear oils are expertly formulated to deliver a number of performance advantages over conventional gear oil chemistries. For example, the range’s high oxidation resistance enables extended oil life up to six times compared to standard mineral gear and bearing lubricants, especially when operating at elevated operating temperatures. In addition, Mobil SHC Gear oils also demonstrate excellent water-handling properties, enhanced resistance to micropitting fatigue, improved seal compatibility and outstanding shear stability.
“As gearbox technology continues to become more advanced, companies are increasingly seeking higher-performing, long-life synthetic lubricants, such as our new Mobil SHC Gear oils, to protect their gearbox investment,” said Mike Hawkins, global brand manager, Mobil SHC brand, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation. “By leveraging ExxonMobil’s exceptional application-specific expertise and relationships with leading Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), we were able to ensure that our new Mobil SHC Gear lubricants feature the most advanced technology to help our customers reduce equipment downtime, minimise maintenance costs and maximise productivity.”
The hydraulic oil, Mobil DTE 10 Excel, exceeds major industry specifications and is known for its ultra keep-clean performance, long-life and durability, and potential energy efficiency benefits. In extensive field and laboratory testing, Mobil DTE 10 Excel demonstrated up to 6 percent gain in energy efficiency compared to conventional hydraulic oil*** and three-fold increase in oil drain intervals.
