    ExxonMobil Launches Landmark Gear and Circulating Oil Mobil SHC™ Elite

ExxonMobil is introducing Mobil SHC™ Elite, a breakthrough synthetic gear and bearing circulating oil for general manufacturing applications. The lubricant’s advanced formulation can help protect equipment operating at extreme temperatures. It can also increase energy efficiency and extend oil drain intervals. 

Extensive testing shows that Mobil SHC™ Elite can deliver double the oil life1 of traditional synthetic products and up to 12 times2 the oil life of mineral products. It can also help protect equipment operating at temperatures up to 150°C in intermittent service. This makes it ideally suited for use in a range of general manufacturing equipment, including blowers, and screw or reciprocating compressors. 

The advanced synthetic lubricant is specifically formulated to deliver excellent wear protection and oxidation resistance without any of the compatibility challenges often associated with glycol-based products used in high temperature applications. In addition, Mobil SHC™ Elite has also demonstrated an enhanced torque ratio, enabling it to deliver a 3.6%3 energy efficiency improvement when compared with conventional mineral oils. 

“Protecting heavily loaded manufacturing equipment from high in-service temperatures can be a major challenge for industrial operators,” said Emre Noyan, industrial marketing manager at ExxonMobil.
“Mobil SHC™ Elite’s extended oil life, wide temperature range performance and energy efficiency improvement can help operators increase uptime and cut costs – giving them a competitive edge.”

Mobil SHC™ Elite has already received approval for its proven performance from leading gearbox manufacturers including Siemens, whose FLENDER gear units depend on effective lubrication to ensure reliability in intense operating environments.

1 Up to 2x oil life as demonstrated in numerous bench and rig tests.  Oil life will vary based on application and operating conditions.
2 Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
3 Energy efficiency relates solely to the performance of Mobil SHC™ Elite when compared to conventional (mineral) reference oils of the same viscosity grade in gear applications. The technology used allows up to 3.6% efficiency compared to the reference when tested in a worm gearbox under controlled conditions. Efficiency improvements will vary based on operating conditions and application.
