(EnergyAsia, May 30 2012, Wednesday) — ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company, a division of Exxon Mobil Corporation, has introduced three next generation high-performance industrial lubricants, expanding its line of energy-efficient industrial lubricants.

These next generation Mobil SHC high-performance lubricants include the SHC 600, SHC Gear and SHC Gear OH.

Mobil SHC 600 is the enhanced formulation upgraded to improve viscosity and low-temperature properties as it delivers outstanding performance across a wide range of circulating and gear applications, said ExxonMobil.

Mobil SHC Gear is a supreme gear oil re-engineered to deliver optimum equipment protection and oil life in gearboxes operating even under extreme conditions with enhanced resistance to micropitting and significant reduction in energy consumption.

Mobil SHC Gear OH is the company’s customised formulation for mining off-highway vehicle (OHV) electric wheel motor drives delivers superb wear protection and supreme performance in severe duty cycles and extreme climates.

“With the exceptional performance and additional energy efficiency benefits that
Mobil SHC Gear and Mobil SHC 600 deliver, we can help our customers across a broad range of industries maximise their productivity and bring them closer to achieving their own sustainability goals,” said Yan Côté, Global Business Development Advisor for ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company.

Developed through extensive research and testing with leading OEMs, ExxonMobil said the SHC Gear Series and SHC 600 lubricants are expertly formulated to optimise the performance of equipment operating in extreme conditions and deliver significant energy efficiency benefits.

In laboratory testing using industrial gearboxes, these new Mobil SHC lubricants delivered energy savings of up to 3.6% compared with conventional oils.

Based on these exceptional results, the new SHC oils have earned ExxonMobil’s official designation for energy efficient industrial lubricants. They will now feature the company’s proprietary “Energy Efficiency” logo on product packaging.

ExxonMobil said its other industrial lubricants that have earned the “Energy Efficient” designation include Mobil SHC Pegasus and the Mobil DTE 10 Excel, a series of energy- efficient, high-viscosity-index, shear-stable, anti-wear oils for hydraulic systems.

The Pegasus is one of the world’s first energy-efficient gas engine oils capable of offering a fuel efficiency increase of up to 1.5% while helping to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as well.

Apart from the energy efficiency benefits, ExxonMobil said these next generation lubricants offer a service life up to as much as six times longer than competitive mineral oil based gear lubricants.

The company said Mobil SHC-branded synthetic lubricants have exclusive or preferential endorsements from leading original equipment manufacturers for more than 2,200 applications and are approved for use in more than 10,000 applications, spanning a wide range of industries.
