Mobilith SHC™ 100 synthetic grease success story

Situation

The client’s maintenance team was looking to achieve a longer operating interval, thereby enhancing productivity and decreasing maintenance cost and stoppages. Trucks are in operation for almost 90,000 km a year. The wheel bearings needed a grease with higher quality base oils and additive technology to withstand the demands of these heavily loaded trucks operating at highway speeds.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil field engineers recommended Mobilith SHC™ 100 synthetic grease for all wheel bearings to help maximize productivity and increase bearing lifetime. Mobilith SHC™ 100 grease is an antiwear and extreme pressure grease primarily recommended for higher speed applications, such as electric motors, where reduced friction, low wear and long service life are required.

Result

Wheel bearing average lifetime reached 370,000 km with Mobilith SHC™ 100 synthetic grease, which is a 50% improvement. Productivity and maintenance benefits of up to US $189,300 per year were achieved compared to the prior operation with conventional mineral bearing grease.

*This proof of performance is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
