A South Korean gear builder produces drives used in passenger elevators. Lubricated with a conventional ISO VG 320 grade mineral oil, many customers reported complaints of micropitting and noisy elevator operations. In an effort to combat the increasing costs of changing damaged gear sets, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of reducing micropitting and operating noise.


ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobil Glygoyle™ 460 high-performance gear oil. Formulated to provide a high level of micropitting protection for sensitive gear sets, Mobil Glygoyle 460 gear oil provides superior benefits in terms of efficiency, long oil life and equipment protection. In addition, ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company implement routine Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis to monitor equipment and oil condition.


After transitioning to Mobil Glygoyle 460 high-performance gear oil, the company significantly reduced micropitting and scratches even after 70,000 rotations (768 hours), as well as lower gearbox operating temperatures. As a result of these benefits, the company began applying Mobil Glygoyle 460 gear oil for all of its products.
