Today Mobil Industrial Lubricants are used extensively in many industrial sectors such as power generation, general manufacturing, metal working, food and beverage processing, pulp and paper, cement, construction, metals and mining.  Each day, Mobil-branded lubricants help enable industrial companies to successfully boost productivity, enhance the performance and life of their equipment, increase profitability and reduce downtime.

When it comes to wind energy generation, wind turbine lubricants need to last long and offer excellent oxidation and shear stability, all the while protecting key turbine components such as main bearings from failure, and gears from micropitting etc. ExxonMobil offers a wide portfolio of products for the rapidly growing wind industry; it has also been at the forefront of developments in the wind energy sector for over 30 years through experienced field engineers and industry-leading used oil analysis service. They work closely with equipment builders to gain insights into their requirements. The formulators then use these insights to build outstanding lubricants that are well supported by builder approvals.

ExxonMobil’s wide product portfoliois designed specifically to meet the challengesof equipment in extreme conditions of temperature, load and water contamination. ExxonMobil products help to sustain maximum power output from wind turbinesminimize unscheduled and costly downtime for maintenance and repairs as well help to preserve the life of the equipment/components.

Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT advanced wind turbine gear lubricant is a fully synthetic gear lubricant designed to protect wind turbine gearboxes operating under extreme conditions, such as extremely low or high temperatures and corrosive environments. This synthetic wind turbine gearbox oil is formulated to provide excellent protection against conventional wear modes such as scuffing, while also providing a high level of resistance against micropitting fatigue.
Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 WT

Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT wind turbine lubrication can maximize equipment productivity by minimizing unscheduled downtime and maintenance, extend gear and bearing life under high-stress operating conditions and extend oil life.

Mobilgear SHC™ XMP 320

Mobilgear SHC XMP 320 synthetic wind turbine gear oil is designed to protect wind turbine gearboxes, including steel-on-steel spur, helical and bevel gears, operating under the extreme conditions typical of wind turbines. The synthetic gear oil is formulated to offer outstanding rust and corrosion protection in applications where salt water and acidic water protection are required.

Mobilgear SHC XMP 320 synthetic gear oil can reduce power consumption in many gear drives, protect against scuffing, resist micropitting fatigue and enhance gearbox rolling element bearing lubrication.

This industrial synthetic gear oil is highly recommended for loaded gearboxes with surface-hardened tooth metallurgies, gear applications where extreme low and/or high temperatures are encountered and situations where corrosion may be severe.

Mobil SHC™ Grease 460 WT

Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT synthetic grease is designed to protect wind turbine equipment operating at high and low temperature extremes, including lubrication of yaw, pitch and main bearings.

In addition, Mobil SHC Grease 460 WT synthetic grease provides excellent protection against wear, rust and corrosion, and exhibits excellent adhesion to parts, structural stability of the grease thickener and robust water resistance.

Mobilith SHC™ 100

Mobilith SHC™ Series greases are superior performance products designed for a wide variety of applications at extremes of temperature. They combine the unique features of synthetic base fluids with those of a high quality lithium complex thickener. The wax-free nature of synthetic fluids and the low coefficient of traction (compared with mineral oils), provide excellent low temperature pumpability and very low starting and running torque. These products offer the potential for energy savings and can reduce operating temperatures in the load zone of spherical roller and ball bearings. The lithium complex thickener contributes excellent adhesion, structural stability and resistance to water. The greases have a high level of chemical stability and are formulated with special additive combinations to provide excellent protection against wear, rust and corrosion, and providing operating viscosity at high and low temperatures. Mobilith SHC Series greases are available in seven grades, varying in base oil viscosity from ISO VG 100 to 1500 and in NLGI grade from 2 to 00.

Mobil SHC™ 524

Mobil SHC 524 oil is exceptional performance hydraulic oils formulated from synthesised, wax-free hydrocarbon base fluids combined with a carefully engineered super-stabilised additive system. It is exceptionally high quality, wide-temperature, shear-stable hydraulic oils with controlled low-temperature pumpability properties and maximised anti-wear protection for high-pressure vane, piston and gear pumps. The product exhibits very high viscosity indexes contributing to their excellent low and high temperature performance making them an excellent choice for equipment that is subjected to a wide range of start-up and operating temperatures. The Mobil SHC 524 oil exhibits outstanding shear stability allowing their use in high-pressure, high-temperature operating environments for extended periods of time without the loss of critical lubrication characteristics.

Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ Series

Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series are high performance anti-wear hydraulic oils specifically designed to meet the needs of modern, high pressure, industrial and mobile equipment hydraulic systems. The Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series is constructed from selected base oils and a proprietary additive system to provide well balanced performance in a range of applications.  The products exhibit outstanding oxidation and thermal stability allowing long oil life and minimized deposit formation in severe hydraulic systems using high pressure, high output pumps.  The innovative ultra-keep clean performance protects critical hydraulic system components from malfunction, such as tight tolerance servo and proportional valves found in many modern hydraulic systems.  The shear stable, high viscosity index allows for a wide operating temperature range maintaining maximum hydraulic efficiency and component protection at both low and high temperatures.  Outstanding air release properties provide an added measure of protection in systems with low residence time helping to prevent cavitation damage and micro dieseling.  The carefully selected base oil and additives allow passing results of acute aquatic toxicity testing (LC-50, OECD 203) and the zinc free anti-wear system provides a high degree of protection in gear, vane and piston pumps while also minimizing deposit formation.

Mobil SHC™ 600 Series

Mobil SHC™ 600 Series lubricants are exceptional performance gear and bearing oils designed to provide outstanding service in terms of equipment protection, oil life and problem-free operation helping to enable increased customer productivity. These scientifically engineered oils are formulated using the latest proprietary and patent pending Mobil SHC technology to provide outstanding and balanced performance in demanding applications at high and low temperatures. Mobil SHC 600 products feature excellent low temperature properties, as well as improved air release performance in the lower viscosity grades. These products are resistant to mechanical shear, even in heavily loaded gear and high shear bearing applications, so that there is virtually no loss of viscosity.

Mobiltac™ 375 NC

Mobiltac 375 NC is extra high performance non-leaded, diluent-type, heavy-bodied open gear lubricants designed for a wide variety of open gear and mining applications. It contains a non-chlorinated, volatile solvent that ensures fluidity during application, even at low temperatures. Once applied, the diluent evaporates and the lubricants take on a flexible, adhesive, high-strength consistency that is maintained throughout their service life. Mobiltac 375 NC adheres strongly to gear teeth and other machine elements to resist excessive throw-off, thereby providing a wear-resistant, viscous, continuous film that lubricates well under boundary conditions.
