Mobilith SHC™ 460 synthetic grease success story

Situation

Minera Sabinas, a Mexican mining company, operates machinery equipped with SKF roller bearings throughout its plant. Lubricated with a mineral-based grease, an average of eight roller bearings required replacement each month at a cost of US $774 each, including parts and labor. In an effort to reduce costs and increase equipment availability, the company approached ExxonMobil engineers for a lubricant solution capable of enhancing bearing life.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company transition to Mobilith SHC™ 460, a high-performance synthetic grease. Formulated with an advanced lithium-complex thickener and a carefully selected proprietary additive system, Mobilith SHC™ 460 grease is specifically designed to provide superior wear protection across a wide operating temperature range, and enhance bearing life.

Result

After making the switch to Mobilith SHC™ 460 synthetic grease, the company reported a reduction in the number of bearing replacements from 96 to six per year. In addition, the use of Mobilith SHC™ 460 grease helped lower bearing operating temperatures by as much as 10° Celsius. Together, these benefits have helped extend bearing life, increase equipment availability, maximize productivity and reduce labor costs, helping to generate a company-estimated savings of more than US $66,000 per year.
