Mobil SHC 629

Situation

A cement company was experiencing issues with its fan bearings due to overheating. As a result, external cooling was needed to prevent production shutdown, and lubricant top-up was required every two days. In an effort to improve equipment reliability, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution that could maintain stability at high temperatures.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobil SHC™ 629 synthetic circulating oil, which is designed to provide outstanding performance in demanding applications at high temperatures.

Result

After switching to Mobil SHC 629 synthetic oil circulating oil, the bearings experienced a 10°C reduction in operating temperatures, which has helped enhance component protection, reducing bearing failure and extending bearing life. In addition, Mobil SHC 629 oil has helped the company reduce lubricant consumption, decrease maintenance and labor costs, and extend oil drain intervals from two to three days – resulting in a customer-estimated annual savings of more than US $10,400.
