Mobilgear SHC increases operation efficiency for linberboard manufacturer

Gear coupling
Coal mine
Germany

Situation
A coal mine operates gear couplings that required frequent regreasing. The couplings were lubricated with a conventional NLGI 0 grade grease with an ISO 220 VG base oil. The grease was bleeding out of the couplings and contaminating the roller stands and rolled material. As a result, the company had to regrease its couplings every 14 days. In an effort to improve reliability, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a grease solution capable of extending regreasing intervals and minimizing grease consumption.

Recommendation
ExxonMobil engineers recommended switching to Mobilith SHC™ 1500 synthetic grease. Formulated with high viscosity index base oils and a lithium complex thickener, Mobilith SHC 1500 provides excellent adhesion, structural stability and resistance to water.

Result
After transitioning to Mobilith SHC 1500 synthetic grease, the company was able to extend regreasing intervals from 14 days to 90 days, as well as significantly reduce grease contamination of the roller stands and rolled material. The company reports that Mobilith SHC 1500 helped eliminate coupling damage and reduce total grease consumption.
