Situation

Orient Ceramics operates a Dowty gear pump in its slip hydraulic system. Lubricated with a conventional hydraulic oil, the pumps were required to maintain 2,200 psi (150 bar) operating pressure. Operating under severe conditions, the hydraulic oil reservoir was consistently running above 70°C (158°F), with average pump life of 3,600 hours and oil replacement intervals of 7,200 hours. In an effort to improve productivity, the company approached ExxonMobil for a lubricant strategy capable of extending oil drain intervals and prolonging equipment life.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil. Formulated from high viscosity index base oils and a proprietary additive system, Mobil DTE 10 Excel 46 oil exhibits outstanding thermal stability for long life, low deposit-forming tendency and frictional benefits that are beneficial to hydraulic systems operating under severe conditions. In addition, ExxonMobil engineers also recommended the company implement routine Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis to monitor equipment and oil condition.

Result

After transitioning to Mobil DTE 10 Excel 46 hydraulic oil, Orient Ceramics doubled oil drain intervals. In addition, the company doubled gear pump life, which helped reduce necessary human-machine interaction by maintenance personnel. Switching to Mobil DTE 10 Excel 46 oil saved Oriental Ceramics US $2,000 annually in reduced oil consumption, filter usage and maintenance costs.
