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 savings of up to 3.6% compared with conventional oils.
In addition, the new lubricants’ advanced synthetic base fluids and proprietary additive system can deliver a service life up to six times longer than competitive mineral oil-based gear and bearing lubricants, 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 corrosion for equipment protection. ExxonMobil said SHC 600 Series oils are recommended for use in 1,800 applications by more than 500 major equipment builders, including Siemens, for use in Flender gearboxes. 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 components and materials used in equipment normally lubricated with mineral oils. www.mobilindustrial.com
