Proof of Performance




Mobilith SHC PoP Thumbnail


Mobilith SHC 100 - Electric Motors

Savings of €100,000 in electric motors with Mobilith SHC grease.

At a paper company in Germany, motors were for years lubricated using grease compliant with DIN KP2N-20. The result was oil ingress into the winding space due to excessive oil deposits.

Results included no bearing damage, no oil-stained windings and a reduction in maintenance cost by approximately €100,000 a year.



Mobilith SHC PM 460 reduces annual maintenance costs by €35,000 at cylinder bearings ThumbnailMobilith SHC PM 460 saves €35,000 in maintenance

Mobilith SHC PM 460 has saved a total of €35,000 at a paper company in Finland. The customer had used mineral grease Unirex EP 2 for several years in very wet conditions. Eventually bearing life reduced to only one month. The recommendation was to switch to synthetic grease Mobilith SHC PM 460. Mobilith SHC PM was selected due to its superior structural stability in the presense of water compared to the previous grease in use. This has resulted in lower maintenance costs, no unplanned shutdowns and no bearing failures.




Mobilgrease XHP 222 helps increase productivity and reduces maintenance costs ThumbnailMobilgrease XHP 222 helps increase productivity

Mobilgrease XHP 222 increases productivity and reduces paper machine maintenance costs in dry section roller bearings. ExxonMobil field engineers proposed to use Mobilgrease XHP 222 instead of the competitor grease. Excellent thermal and structural stability of Mobilgrease XHP 222 provides longer lubricant and equipment service life, with better protection of bearings and lower grease consumption.

Mobil Polyrex EM  - PoP ThumbnailMobil Polyrex EM Endures Rigorous Conditions For 6 Times Longer Than The Competitor Grease

A Russian Primary Metals Company has been using Mobil Polyrex EM in their electric motor roller bearings and has seen excellent endurance and performance from this sturdy, hardy grease. With competitor greases failing after just one a half months, it is safe to say that with a life span of at least 6 times longer, Mobil Polyrex EM is the fore-runner for these prime applications.  



Mobiltih SHC PM 460 reduced grease consumption by more than 30% ThumbnailMobilith SHC PM 460 reduces grease consumption

Mobilith SHC PM 460 has prevented bearing failures and reduced grease consumption by more than 30% in a paper plant in Germany.  Cracks in the dry and wet parts of roller bearings was causing constant problems for the company. As a result Mobilith SHC PM 460 was recommended and since it's introduction there have been no reported lubrication related bearing damage. Consumption of grease has also been reduced.

Mobil EAL Hydraulic Oil 46 extends re-lubrication in a sensitive environmental area ThumbnailMobil EAL 46 extends re-lubrication intervals

Mobil EAL Hydraulic Oil 46  was recommended due to its non-water hazard potential, therefor an authority exception letter is no longer necessary. The Mobil EAL Hydraulic Oil 46 has a very good adhesive power, with the result of a good lubrication of the platform conveyor and it was possible to reduce the re-lubrication interval. The lubrication consumption was reduced from 3,000 litres a year down to 2,100 litres a year. The pollution of the conveyor parts and their surrounding area has been reduced significantly.




Mobil SHC Gear 6800 Improves Vibration Properties ThumbnailMobil SHC Gear 6800 Improves Vibration Properties

A Paper factor in Germany has made the switch to Mobil SHC Gear 6800. Before making the switch, a local competitor product was used. Since then, the change to Mobil Gear 6800 has produced some drastic results such as: A massive improvment in vibration properties, no gear box damage, a higher viscosity and excellent adhesion, a decrease in contamination and an overall cleaner system.

Mobil SHC Polyrex 462 Thermal Stress ThumbnailMobil SHC Polyrex 462 - Withstanding Thermal Stress

Field tests in a Rolling mill at a factory in Germany have put Mobi SHC Polyrex 462 through the paces. After a full year no damage and no thermal overload of the grease was observed. Grease remained stable despite high temperatures and no change in penetration was discovered. Re-greasing intervals extended by three times.

As a result of these outcomes there was a yearly saving of €18,000

Reduction in wear by using two synthetic lube oils for plate conveyors ThumbnailMobil Pyrolube & Mobil EAL Oil 46 Make The Difference

The extraordinary lubrication conditions of the free-standing plate conveyors caused extreme chain wear. In the winter months, in particular, the lubrication system failed using a competitor oil. Thats where Mobil Pyrolube 830 & Mobil EAL Hydraulic Oil 46 come in. The conveyor system saw a massive boost in productivity from several angles, including: Operating in temperatures as low -24 degrees, chain wear was considerably reduced and the system availability was overall improved significantly.

Upgraded performance by using Mobil SHC 626 Upgrading performance by switching to Mobil SHC 626 Thumbnail

A paper factory in Austria has achieved a boost in productivity and performance by switching their lubrication over to Mobil SHC 626. During the use of a competitor synthetic oil, in a period of 13 months, 33 valves had to be changed in the equipment. After 10 months of testing with Mobil SHC 626 only one valve had to be changed - a major difference in cost and labour. Other benefits also include; Pressure reduction (valves secondary on carriage), no annual oil change completed as was previously required. Click the thumbnail to view the full report.
