Mobil DTE 10 Excel 46 Prevents Sheet Metal Punch Press Failure

Hot sheet steel rolling mill

Russia

Situation

A Russian steel mill operating a hot sheet steel rolling mill experienced severe water washout in its roller bearing cages and grease coking with the conventional mineral oil then in use. These performance challenges resulted in deposit formation and corrosion that shortened equipment life, so the mill approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of enhancing equipment protection.

Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended switching to Mobilgrease XHP™ 461 bearing grease for a six-month trial period. Formulated with an advanced lithium complex thickener, Mobilgrease XHP 461 grease is designed to provide strong adhesion and washout resistance, protection against rust and excellent thermal stability.

Result

After monitoring the performance of the bearing cages, the mill observed that Mobilgrease XHP 461 grease delivered excellent adhesive properties, water washout resistance and equipment protection. It also helped prevent corrosion and enhance operational efficiency in its roller bearing cages. These benefits helped prevent deposit formation and grease coking, as well as reduce overall grease consumption.
