Mobil SHC hydraulic oil and bearings

Situation

Ceramika Końskie is a Polish ceramic tile manufacturer who uses a Sacmi Imola type PH-3200 Android press in their tile production. The press works under high pressure and operating temperature and the measured hydraulic system temperature was above 100° Celsius. The customer experienced sludge, deposit formation and foaming in the hydraulic system with the prior conventional product. Actual press performance was 10.8 cycles/minute, compared to a design basis of 12.7 cycles/minute. In addition, deposit formation increased unplanned downtime due to filter plugging.

Recommendation

The ExxonMobil engineer recommended Mobil SHC™ 525 synthetic hydraulic oil to improve the press operation due its outstanding high-temperature performance and excellent oxidation resistance. This allowed extension of oil and filter change intervals, while assuring system cleanliness and trouble-free operation.

Result

By converting to Mobil SHC™ 525 synthetic hydraulic oil, the customer reports experiencing up to 17%* improvement in tile press productivity and a 6-hour decrease of unplanned downtime as a result of the extended filter change intervals.

*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.
