Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 helps reduce energy consumption

Situation

In an injection moulding machine, different plastic materials are produced through inlet of plastic pellets. A hydraulic unit is responsible for moving the plungers of the cylinder and for activating the hydro motor. The leak oil stream should be constant during operation and a free movement of the plungers is necessary for a fast and homogeneous action. Large leak oil streams and stick slip can have a negative impact on the energy efficiency. The company approached ExxonMobil to help determine an alternative lubrication solution capable of reducing energy consumption while simultaneously providing outstanding equipment protection.

Recommendation

Based on customer feedback ExxonMobil engineers proposed an energy efficiency study with the current hydraulic oil and Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil. Formulated with selected base oils and a proprietary additive system, Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 is scientifically engineered to help provide exceptional hydraulic system efficiency†, including potential energy efficiency benefits.

Impact

Häfner & Krullmann’s maintenance personnel reported the energy study results showed the injection molding machines experienced up to 3% reduction of energy consumed when using Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil, while operating at full capacity. In addition, the customer experienced reduction of filter usage due to excellent filterability and low differential pressure at the beginning.

Benefits

Transitioning to Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 lubricants, allowed the company to achieve energy consumption saving results by an average of 7%. Furthermore operator/machine interaction was reduced by 27 hours annually. By switching to Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 the company also used about 200 litres less oil per year. Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis helped to further optimize the Mobil DTE™ 10 Series oil performance by identifying potential failures before they occur allowing to operate at peak efficiency.

† The energy efficiency of Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ relates solely to the fluid performance when compared to conventional Mobil-branded hydraulic fluids. The technology used allows up to 6% increase in hydraulic pump efficiency compared to Mobil DTE 20 series when tested in standard hydraulic applications under controlled conditions. The energy efficiency claim for this product is based on test results on the use of the fluid conducted in accordance with all applicable industry standards and protocols.

* This proof of performance is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
