Supreme performance gear and bearing oils
The upgraded Mobil SHC 600 Series lubricants provide outstanding equipment protection, extended oil life and problem-free operation. 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, well beyond the capabilities of conventional oils.
These products are resistant to mechanical shear and have low traction coefficients, which results in low fluid friction in the load zone of non-conforming surfaces. This produces lower operating temperatures and improved gear efficiency, which translates into reduced power consumption. It also results in extended parts life and allows for more economical equipment design. The upgraded Mobil SHC 600 Series formulation also provides superior resistance to oxidation and deposit formation at elevated temperatures, as well as exceptional resistance to rusting and corrosion, antiwear, demulsibility, foam control and air release properties, and multi-metal compatibility. The upgraded Mobil SHC 600 Series oils maintain good compatibility with seals and other materials used in equipment normally lubricated with mineral oils.
The Mobil SHC brand of lubricants are recognized and appreciated around the world for their innovation and outstanding performance. These synthetic products, molecularly designed and pioneered by our research scientists, embody the continuing commitment to using advanced technology to provide outstanding lubricant products. The development of Mobil SHC 600 Series was preceded by close contacts between our scientists and application specialists with key Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure that the products provide exceptional performance in the continually evolving industrial equipment designs.
Our work with key equipment builders has helped confirm the results from our own laboratory and rig tests showing the exceptional performance of Mobil SHC 600 Series lubricants. Not least among the benefits, shown in work with OEMs, is the potential for energy efficiency improvements up to 3.6% relative to mineral oils (*). These benefits are particularly evident in equipment with a high level of mechanical losses, such as high ratio worm gears.
To develop the latest Mobil SHC technology for Mobil SHC 600 Series oils, our product formulation scientists chose select base oils because of their exceptional thermal/oxidative resistance potential and combined them with a balanced additive system, which complements the inherent benefits of the base oils to provide excellent oil life, deposit control and resistance to thermal/oxidative and chemical degradation. This formulation approach provides low temperature fluidity characteristics exceeding that of many conventional mineral products and is a key benefit for remote, low ambient temperature applications. Mobil SHC 600 Series oils offer the following features and potential benefits:
(*) Energy efficiency relates solely to the performance of Mobil SHC 600 when compared to conventional (mineral) reference oils of the same viscosity grade in circulating and gear applications. The technology used allows up to 3.6% efficiency compared to the reference when tested in a worm gearbox under controlled conditions. Efficiency improvements will vary based on operating conditions and application.
