ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties announces the introduction of its new lineup of high-performance, fully-synthetic industrial gear oils, known as Mobil SHC Gear series. 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 Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) specification for industrial gearbox applications. Ideal for a wide range of industrial gearbox applications, the new Mobil SHC Gear lubricants also offer valuable energy efficiency benefits. In statistically validated laboratory tests and field trials, Mobil SHC Gear fluids exhibited energy savings of up to 3.6 percent compared with conventional oils.
“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,” says Mike Hawkins, global brand manager, Mobil SHC Brand, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation. “By leveraging ExxonMobil’s exceptional application-specific expertise and relationships with leading 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, minimize maintenance costs and maximize their productivity.”
Backed by extensive research and testing, Mobil SHC Gear oils are expertly formulated to help deliver a number of performance advantages over conventional gear oil chemistries, including increased protection against conventional wear modes such as scuffing, enhanced resistance to micropitting fatigue, and extended oil life. Indeed, Mobil SHC Gear fluids offer a service life as much as six times longer than competitive mineral oil based gear lubricants.
Today, Mobil SHC branded synthetic lubricants are approved for use in more than 10,000 applications and have exclusive/preferential endorsements from leading OEMs for more than 2,200 applications, spanning a wide range of industries. For more information visit www.mobilindustrial.com.
