Leading technology Mobil-branded synthetic greases, whether mineral or synthetic, can help protect your equipment, extend re-lubrication intervals and help enable problem-free operation. Based on carefully selected mineral and scientifically engineered synthetic base fluids, in combination with patented thickener technology and synergistic additive systems, Mobil-branded synthetic greases are specially designed to meet a wide variety of operating conditions in both industrial and mobile equipment. These conditions include very high and low temperatures, water contamination, heavy or shock loads, and variable speeds. Mobil-branded synthetic greases are available in a range of viscosity grades to offer you the right grease for your application.
Mobilgrease XMP is designed to give added protection to the key components that are vital in your equipment, machinery or
application. The performance of Mobilgrease XMP greases make them the compelling choice of grease for severe operating conditions including high temperature, water contamination, dusty environments, shock loading and extended re-lubrication intervals.
Oil Flooded Rotary Screw Flushing Procedure.
Switching to Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series Products
Lubricants used in oil flooded rotary screw air compressors come in many different base fluids and additive technologies. The typical base fluids in air compressor lubricants may be mineral or synthetic. Synthetic base fluids could be PAO, PAG, Silicones or Esters. These lubricants may not be compatiable, therefore we recommend flushing when converting your oil flooded rotary air compressor to Mobil Rarus SHC 1020 Series.
Packaged air compressor units with oil flooded rotary screw air compressors are typically self-contained and mounted on a skid base. Normally, these units supply plant air at up to 10 bar. Generally driven by electric motors, the compressors may be enclosed in a sound attenuating housing whose panels can be removed or opened to service the unit.
Mobil Rarus SHC 1024, Mobil Rarus SHC 1025 and Mobil Rarus SHC 1026 are all covered in this technical topic.

Shelf life represents the time period during which a stored product, such as Lubricating Oils and Greases, can continue to be used without quality-control checks to verify performance attributes. Shelf life recommendations for ExxonMobil's Lubricating Oils and Greases are provided as guidance for our customers and distributors. Shelf life recommendations apply to lubricants that have been stored in their original, sealed containers under proper conditions.

Exceptional protection under harsh operating conditions. Mobilgrease XHP Mine Series is specifically designed for the lubrication of extra-heavy-duty off-highway and mining equipment. These lithium complex greases are fortified with 5% molybdenum disulphide and can be utilised across a wide range of operating conditions and temperatures. In addition to its exceptional staying power and extended service capabilities under harsh conditions, Mobilgrease XHP Series exhibits excellent extreme-pressure and antiwear properties, outstanding structural stability, and will not corrode steel or copper bearing alloys.
High Temperature claims can be confusing - don't panic.
Grease high temperature claims based on different standards can vary widely. The range of approaches commonly used in the industry to define the maximum temperature at which grease will provide adequate lubrication can be confusing for customers wishing to select the best product for their application.

There are millions of pieces of industrial equipment in operation today that are lubricated with grease. Many of these applications are in tough service and non-ideal environments, which makes regreasing an integral part of the maintenance activities. Using spring-loaded grease fittings helps prevent over pressurisation of the bearing housing and protect bearings with shields from being damaged. Pressure-relief fittings can also reduce the time it takes to complete the regreasing activity.

Flexible couplings are relatively small in comparison to the equipment they tie together. However, they play a large role in equipment reliability. A coupling failure could cause significant downtime and maintenance cost.
Couplings are mechanical connectors that transmit torque while accommodating shaft misalignment. Couplings prevent inevitable shaft misalignment from causing stresses that could shorten the life of power- train components and cause downtime.

Depending on the application, grease can present several benefits over fluid lubrication. Greases provide a physical seal preventing contamination ingress, resist the washing action of water, and can stay in place in an application even in vertically mounted positions.
As a result, greases are used in approximately 80% of rolling elements bearings.

Rolling element bearings need to be relubricated from time to time to replace grease that has deteriorated, leaked away or become contaminated. Because the conditions under which rolling element bearings operated vary so widely, it takes on-the-spot-know-how to determine proper relubrication intervals. Intervals can range from once a day to once a year. No one lubricant or relubrication schedule can take care of the wide range of loads, speeds and perating temperatures at which individulal bearings demonstrate optimal performance.
Mixing different greases, even those with similar thickener types, can sometimes lead to ineffective lubrication resulting in damage of the lubricated components. If not spotted soon enough this may lead to equipment failure. The situations occur due to chemical or structural interaction between the thickener or additive systems of the different greases which would be classified as 'incompatible'
