Gear oils reduce friction losses and extend service intervals

ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation, is launching the Mobil SHC Gear series of high-performance, fully-synthetic industrial gear oils. These oils have been formulated to help general manufacturing and processing industries increase productivity and reduce costs by lowering energy consumption and extending oil drain intervals.

The Mobil SHC lubricants offer valuable energy efficiency benefits across a wide range of industrial gearbox applications. In statistically validated laboratory tests and field trials, Mobil SHC Gear fluids exhibited energy savings of up to 3.6 per cent compared with conventional oils*. In addition, the Mobil SHC Gear series' high oxidation resistance extends oil life by up to six times compared to standard mineral gear and bearing lubricants, especially when operating at elevated temperatures. Backed by extensive research and testing, Mobil SHC Gear oils also demonstrate excellent water-handling properties, enhanced resistance to micropitting fatigue, improved seal compatibility and outstanding shear stability.

Mike Hawkins, the global brand manager for Mobil SHC, comments: "For many industrial businesses, gearboxes are a critical source of power transmission. That is why today, as gearbox technology continues to become more advanced, companies are increasingly seeking higher-performing synthetic lubricants, such as our new Mobil SHC Gear lubricants, to protect their gearbox investment. By leveraging ExxonMobil's exceptional application-specific expertise and close co-operation with leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), we were able to ensure that our new Mobil SHC Gear lubricants feature the most advanced Mobil SHC technology to help our customers reduce equipment downtime, minimise maintenance costs and maximise productivity."

OEM approvals

The latest addition to the Mobil SHC brand of high-performance synthetic lubricants, Mobil SHC Gear fluids are approved by Siemens for use in Flender gearboxes and meet or exceed nearly every other major industry and OEM specification for industrial gearbox applications. Today, Mobil SHC-branded synthetic lubricants are approved for use in more than 10,000 applications and have exclusive or preferential endorsements from leading OEMs for more than 2200 applications, spanning a wide range of industries.

Mobil SHC Gear series oils further expand ExxonMobil's comprehensive Mobil industrial lubricants that are claimed to provide outstanding protection and performance while offering the potential for energy savings. For example, the hydraulic oil, Mobil DTE 10 Excel, also has the potential to achieve energy savings for general manufacturing and processing companies. In controlled laboratory efficiency testing, Mobil DTE 10 Excel was shown to provide up to a six per cent improvement in hydraulic pump efficiency compared to Mobil DTE 20 when operating in standard hydraulic applications**.

Andrea Jacobsen, the Industrial Lubricants Marketing Manager for Europe Africa Middle East zone at ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, comments: "While the primary function of a lubricant is to reduce unscheduled downtime and extend oil drain intervals, advanced lubrication technology now means companies can select fluids which can provide outstanding levels of protection and performance as well as other benefits such as improved energy efficiency. The Mobil SHC Gear series and Mobil DTE 10 Excel are two examples of how Mobil industrial lubricants can help companies achieve a competitive advantage in their operation."
