Mobil SHC 636 helps plastics manufacturer save $133,000

Hebei Yuxin Plastic, a PVC film manufacturing company, saved more than $133,000 annually by switching to ExxonMobil's gear and bearing oil, Mobil SHC 636. The introduction of the advanced lubricant in its PVC film calender machine helped to reduce component wear and quadrupled oil drain intervals.

The manufacturer, based in Xiongxian, North China, was suffering from increased downtime, due to frequent oil changes and bearing replacements. After an on-site investigation by an ExxonMobil field engineer, the cause was determined to be the operating temperature of the calender roll bearing, which exceeded 100degC, resulting in quick oil oxidation and bearing failure.

After switching to Mobil SHC 636, a lubricant renowned for excellent high-temperature oxidation stability and anti-wear capability, the operator saw reduced maintenance and increased uptime. On a wider scale, it also reduced employee interaction with the machine, diminishing potential risk of injury.

Rainer Lange, Mobil SHC Brand Advisor - EAME at ExxonMobil says: "PVC manufacturing is both a thriving and challenging industry. Increased competition means every detail in a plant's operation must be optimized. Our field engineers give customers a personalised service that can increase overall plant performance. In this case, the introduction of the right lubricant resulted in more uptime and annual savings of more than $133,000."

Hebei Yuxin Plastic Co., Ltd is a PVC film manufacturing company located in Baoding city, Hebei province. The company was founded in 2002 and its line of business includes the manufacturing of unsupported plastics film and sheet.
