Mobil SHC™ PM Series

Paper Machine Lubricants

Mobil SHC™ PM Series products are superior performance synthetic lubricants specifically designed for the most demanding industrial paper machine circulating systems. The Mobil SHC PM Series oils are formulated to provide outstanding protection of gears and bearings operating under the most severe conditions. They have very low pour points and a naturally high viscosity index (VI) which helps ensure good low temperature start-up while maintaining excellent viscosity characteristics at very high temperatures. The fluids are very shear stable and maintain viscosity control even when subjected to severe mechanical shear in heavily loaded bearings and gears. Their low traction coefficient and high viscosity index can help result in lower energy consumption and reduced component operating temperatures.

 

To develop the latest Mobil SHC technology for Mobil SHC PM Series oils, ExxonMobil product formulation scientists chose select base oils because of their exceptional thermal/oxidative resistance potential and combined them with a balanced additive system, which complement the inherent benefits of the base oils to attain high performance standards. These fluids permit the use of higher steam pressures, temperatures and machine speeds common in high output paper machines and calendar rolls. Their outstanding hydrolytic stability and filterability assure excellent performance in the presence of water and the ability to retain effective filtration even at very fine filtration levels. They readily separate water and retain their colour characteristics for extended periods of operation under severe conditions.

 

Our Mobil SHC™ PM Series paper machine oils are designed to meet the challenging operating environments in today’s paper industry. These synthetic oils are formulated to protect bearings and gears in environments with high speeds (in excess of 2,000 m/min) and high steam temperatures (which can reach 200°C).

Mobil SHC PM Series paper machine oils are formulated with insights from our relationships with leading builders and are designed for exceptional performance in the latest paper-making equipment. They are recognized by major builders including SKF for their excellent protection of paper machine bearings and gear systems.

Developed to outperform mineral oils, these synthetic paper machine oils can:

  • Increase machine oil life
  • Improve circulation system cleanliness
  • Reduce unnecessary downtime and premature component failure
