Oven conveyor system
YS Success Industries Sdn Bhd
Prai Selatan, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
The oven conveyor system at YS Success Sdn Bhd operates at temperatures of up to 160°C (320°F), which caused the conventional mineral grease to soften, bleed out of the conveyor bearings and contaminate finished products. Additionally, deposits began to form on the bearings and created erratic, jerky movements in the conveyor system, which affected the paint job quality of the auto spray units. As a result, finished products were rejected at a rate of 50 percent. To help solve these issues, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of enhancing the productivity and reliability of its oven conveyor system.
ExxonMobil engineers recommended switching to Mobiltemp SHC™ 460 Special high-performance synthetic grease. Formulated with a synthetic base fluid and clay thickener, Mobiltemp SHC 460 Special provides outstanding grease structural stability to prevent softening and bleeding, while the synthetic oil maintains its viscosity and resists breakdown and carbonized deposits.
After transitioning to Mobiltemp SHC 460 Special synthetic grease, YS Success was able to eliminate grease bleeding that resulted in product contamination and jerky conveyor movements during the drying process. The company reports that Mobiltemp SHC 460 Special also helped lower the rejection rate of finished products to less than 5 percent and reduce paint consumption by 33 percent.
