ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties, has launched a series of fully-synthetic industrial gear oils, known as the Mobil SHC Gear series.

The series has been formulated to help metals organisations increase productivity and reduce costs by lowering energy consumption and extending oil drain intervals.

The lubricants offer energy efficiency benefits across industrial gearbox applications. In statistically validated laboratory tests and field trials, the fluids exhibited energy savings of up to 3.6% compared to conventional oils.

Its oxidation resistance enables extended oil life up to six times compared to standard mineral gear and bearing lubricants, especially when operating at elevated operating temperatures.

Backed by extensive research and testing, Mobil SHC Gear oils also demonstrate water-handling properties, enhanced resistance to micropitting fatigue, improved seal compatibility and outstanding shear stability.

Mobil SHC Gear fluids are approved by Siemens for use in Flender gearboxes and meet or exceed nearly every other major industry and OEM specification for industrial gearbox applications.

Mobil SHC-branded synthetic lubricants are approved for use in more than 10,000 applications and have exclusive or preferential endorsements from leading OEMs for more than 2,200 applications, spanning many industries.
