Cement plant bearing oil success story

Cement mineral conveyor – HANSEN gearbox
Guangdon GITIC Green Island Co. Ltd.
Guangdong, China

Situation
Guangdong GITIC Green Island Company operates a cement production line with annual capacity of 1 million tons. Lubricated with conventional mineral oil in a high-temperature operating environment, the conveyor gearbox experienced harsh conditions such as prevalent dust, which increased the risk of equipment breakdowns. In an effort to ensure equipment reliability, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of reducing operating temperatures and preventing unscheduled downtime.

Recommendation
ExxonMobil engineers recommended switching to Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 synthetic gear oil. Formulated with a high viscosity index, low traction coefficient and excellent high-temperature oxidation stability, Mobil SHC Gear 320 gear oil provides outstanding component protection while helping extend oil life and improve energy efficiency potential. Additionally, ExxonMobil engineers recommended implementing routine Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis to monitor equipment and oil condition.

Result
After transitioning to Mobil SHC Gear 320 synthetic gear oil, Guangdong GITIC Green Island Company was able to reduce operating temperatures by 5°C (9°F), as well as reach record-low power consumption levels. The transition enhanced energy efficiency on the production line, generating company-estimated annual savings of US $4,945.
