Lubricants Offer Savings, Extended Service Life

ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, a division of ExxonMobil, has launched the next generation of Mobil SHC 600 Series lubricants. According to ExxonMobil L&S, extensive laboratory and in-service testing showed the new SHC 600 Series lubricants provide energy sav-ings of up to 3.6% compared with conven-tional oils. In addition, the new lubricants’ advanced synthetic base fluids and propri-etary additive system can deliver a service life up to six times longer than competitive mineral oil-based gear and bearing lubri-cants, said the company, which added that the lubricants deliver a number of other significant benefits including outstanding low temperature fluidity to enable startup and operation at low temperatures, and excellent resistance to rusting and corro-sion for equipment protection. ExxonMobil said SHC 600 Series oils are recommend-ed for use in 1,800 applications by more than 500 major equipment builders, including Siemens, for use in Flender gear-boxes. The enhanced series is approved by SEW-Eurodrive for gearbox factory-fill and service-fill worldwide. The multi-purpose potential of Mobil SHC 600 Series oils enable companies to reduce their overall lubricant inventory, delivering additional cost-savings and storage benefits. They are also fully compatible with system compo-nents and materials used in equipment normally lubricated with mineral oils.
