SKF bearings

Mining company

Cajamarca, Peru

Situation

A Peruvian mining company using a conventional mineral grease to lubricate its SKF bearings experienced weekly regreasing intervals and shortened bearing life of only two to three years. The company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of enhancing bearing life, extending lubrication intervals and improving overall productivity.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobilith SHC™ 220 multipurpose grease. Formulated with lithium complex thickener and a high performance synthetic base oil, Mobilith SHC 220 is engineered to provide outstanding equipment protection, enhanced grease life, and problem-free operation.

Result

The use of Mobilith SHC 220 multipurpose grease helped extend bearing life to more than five years and reduced grease consumption by 50 percent, reducing maintenance and repair work. The company reports that Mobilith SHC 220 enabled estimated annual productivity savings of US $38,800 while reducing personnel safety risks due to fewer human-machine interactions.
