Mobil SHC™ 500 helps steel operators improve energy efficiency
Mobil SHC 500 range of high performance hydraulic oils can help reduce energy consumption of equipment by up to 6.2%

Mobil SHC™ 500 hydraulic oils have been proven to offer maintenance professionals significant energy efficiency benefits in hydraulic equipment.

Compared to standard mineral alternatives, Mobil SHC 500 Series can help reduce hydraulic system’s energy consumption by up to 6.2 percent*, a saving marked by the ExxonMobil ‘Energy Efficiency’ logo on packaging. The Mobil SHC 500 Series are supreme performance hydraulic oils formulated from synthesised, wax-free hydrocarbon base fluids combined with a carefully engineered super- stabilised additive system. They are 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 used in steel plants.

The increased hydraulic efficiency potential of Mobil SHC 500 can result in an overall reduction in CO2 emissions, helping reduce the environmental impact of metallurgical operation

 

The increased hydraulic efficiency, impressive system cleanliness and durability offered by the Mobil SHC 500 can help maintenance staff decrease machine maintenance, extend oil drain intervals, and potentially reduce hydraulic system energy consumption by up to 6.2 percent*. Additionally, the increased hydraulic efficiency potential of Mobil SHC 500 can also result in an overall reduction in CO2 emissions, helping reduce the environmental impact of metallurgical operations. In addition, Mobil SHC 500 Series deliver outstanding low and high temperature performance, providing an extra margin of equipment protection above and beyond the capabilities of comparable mineral oil-based products. This benefit resonates with the steel industry that is subject to extremely high operational temperatures and, therefore, demanding sufficient heat-resistance from the lubricants in use. Also, at -400C Mobil SHC 500 is four times thinner than similar viscosity index conventional mineral hydraulic oils**, allowing it to circulate around the hydraulic system faster at start up, ensuring the lubricant is in place to protect machine components.

“Given the high operating temperatures and heavy loads, steel mills are a challenging environment for lubricants to operate in,” said Andrea Jacobsen, Industrial Marketing, Europe, Africa & Middle East, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Petroleum Specialties Company. “The benefits offered by the Mobil SHC 500 series are further proof of how Mobil Industrial Lubricants’ application expertise and portfolio of synthetic products can help steel mills worldwide reduce unscheduled downtime, increase productivity, safety and reduce costs.”

*Energy efficiency relates solely to fluid performance when compared with conventional reference oils of the same viscosity grade in hydraulic applications. The technology used is able to achieve up to 6.2 percent efficiency compared with the reference when tested in a hydraulic system under controlled conditions. Efficiency improvements vary based on operating conditions and application. ** Based on comparative -400C Brookfield, ASTM D2893 test results, between Mobil SHC 525 and Mobil Univis N 46.
