Mobilith SHC™ 007 synthetic grease helps freight company extend axle life and save US $85,000 annually*
Extended regrease intervals by 3x andincreased bearing life by 6x
Servicios y Transportes is a Colombian general freight transportation company with more than 200 vehicles. The company’s Kenworth, International and Chevrolet rigs use Arvin Meritor front axles with Timken bearings and operate on-highway, carrying 35-, 25-, and 18-ton loads, respectively. Lubricated with conventional greases, the bearings were experiencing severe pitting problems, limiting service life to six months. In an effort to improve equipment availability, the company approached ExxonMobil engineers and R&R Lubricants, an authorized ExxonMobil distributor, for an alternative grease solution.
ExxonMobil engineers recommended transitioning to Mobilith SHC™ 007 synthetic grease. They also suggested enhancing current maintenance practices with complimentary technical services provided by R&R Lubricants.
Servicios y Transportes reports that Mobilith SHC 007 synthetic grease has helped extend regreasing intervals from six months to 18 months, and bearing service life from six months to 36 months. These benefits have helped generate a customer-estimated annual savings of US $85,000 in maintenance and parts replacement costs.
