Energy EfficiencyCOLOGNE, GERMANY (28 March 2012) - ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation, today announced that its range of NSF H1 registered Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils have the potential to help food and beverage companies achieve energy efficiency savings of up to 3.6 percent for gear oil applications*.

Ideal for the full spectrum of hydraulic, gear, bearing, circulation system and heat transfer applications, Mobil SHC Cibus premium-performance synthetic lubricants offer enhanced safety and productivity benefits alongside energy efficiency potential.  Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils are NSF H1 registered lubricants and comply with Title 21 CFR 178.3570 of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lubricants with the potential for incidental food contact and are manufactured in facilities that meet the hygiene requirements of ISO 21469:2006. In addition to being manufactured in equipment where cross contamination is minimised, Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants are formulated to nut-, wheat- and gluten free and suitable under Kosher and Halal dietary law.

“Food and beverage processors are uniquely challenged not only with maximising equipment performance and boosting productivity, but also ensuring food safety,” said Rainer Lange, Mobil SHC Brand Advisor ­ Europe, Africa and Middle East, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company.  “Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants are expertly formulated to help food and beverage processors meet their application-specific goals and provide valuable sustainability-related benefits, such as enhanced energy efficiency and extended oil drain intervals.”

Since their introduction, customers across Europe, the United States and Asia have reported extensive benefits from using the oils.  A food manufacturer operating in China, reported energy savings of up to 4.3% when it upgraded its six oil-injected dual screw air compressors from mineral lubricants to Mobil SHC Cibus 32. The 4.3% savings claimed, would result in an annual power reduction of 22,170 kWh.

A manufacturer in Germany also reported energy savings of 3.4 percent by switching to Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils.  ExxonMobil recommended converting to Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants to help address the issue of frequent unscheduled shutdowns as a result of a compressor overheating.  After flushing the screw compressor’s lubricant system and replacing with Mobil SHC Cibus 46, the overheating issue was addressed, it was reported oil life doubled and energy savings of 58,000 kWh per year were realised.

The Mobil SHC Cibus Series for gear oil applications, is the latest ExxonMobil product to earn the official designation of an “Energy Efficient” industrial lubricant and will feature the company’s proprietary “Energy Efficiency” logo on packaging.
