Mobil SHC™ 626 helps Xinyu Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. Heat electric plant save US$ 2,100 annually
Power reduction of1.5%
There are eight cooling towers in the Xinyu Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. Heat Electric Plant. The core equipment of these cooling towers are the gearboxes of the tower fans. These were lubricated with a mineral oil and were costly to maintain. Hence, the plant was seeking a cost-effective lubricant that could improve operational and energy efficiency while reducing total cost.
The ExxonMobil Lube Engineer conducted on-site inspections with the customer and recommended replacing the current mineral oil with Mobil SHC™ 626 coupled with Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis. As Mobil SHC™ 626 has excellent high-temperature oxidation stability, a low traction coefficient and high viscosity index, it was able to extend oil drain interval and improve the energy efficiency of the system.
- Decreasing the average working temperature of the gearboxes by 5°C (41°F)
- Decreasing the electric motor amps by about 1.5%
