Due to the competitive nature of the plastics industry, companies are continually looking to maximise productivity while reducing unscheduled downtime and costs. While a small percentage of total maintenance spend, the latest hydraulic oils have the potential to inject additional productivity and performance into plastic manufacturing operations.
Many types of lubricants are used in the food industry, including those that are food grade, NSF H1 registered. These lubes are permitted to have “incidental contact” with food, as long as the amount doesn’t exceed 10 ppm.
Wind turbines are sophisticated machines, operating in demanding environments. This being so, it is very important to select the right lubricant, as the proper oil choice can improve wind turbine availability. This article focuses on the challenges in wind turbine lubrication, specifically addressing the use of an advanced synthetic gear oil, Mobilgear SHC XMP 320, in the main wind turbine gearbox.
This year, ExxonMobil celebrates the 100th anniversary of its Equipment Builder Group, a team of technical experts and engineers who work collaboratively with leading OEMs in more than 150 countries around the world.

Çimko Cement, a cement-producing company in Turkey, has experienced significant reductions both in energy consumption and gearbox operating temperatures at the Narli plant following a switch to Mobil SHC Gear, a high-performance gear oil from ExxonMobil.
This article briefly explains some of the key features of synthetic lubricants that can contribute to energy efficiency.
Starting with a basic overview of how synthetics are produced we go on to examine how reducing heat transfer contributes to energy efficiency.
Edward Davey UK secretary of state teamed up with DECC Prime Minister Greg Barker to unveil the world’s largest offshore wind farm the London Array in Margate, Kent.
Leaders from the ‘waste to energy’ industrial sectors have called for a greater push and a more practical approach to energy from waste renewable energy sources. A long term strategy will need to be formulated with like-minded businesses and individuals who are determined enough to make it happen. The key is to utilise not just one area of renewable energy, but focus on several key industries to maximise potential.
