Mobil SHC lubricants and greases help advance productivity
ExxonMobil showcased its Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 WT at Windergy 2017. Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 WT is the most preferred advanced wind turbine gear lubricant which is used for protecting wind turbine gearboxes operating under extreme conditions, such as extremely low or high temperatures and corrosive environments. This synthetic wind turbine gearbox oil is formulated to provide excellent protection against conventional wear modes such as scuffing, while providing a high level of resistance against micropitting fatigue.
Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT wind turbine lubrication maximises equipment productivity by minimising unscheduled downtime and maintenance, extends gear and bearing life under high-stress operating conditions. Moreover, the wax-free nature of synthetic fluids and the low coefficient of traction provide excellent low temperature pumpability and very low starting and running torque. Backed by the 7 years limited warranty promise, it offers extended oil life.
Mobil’s field demonstration with equipment builders has also helped to confirm the results from laboratory tests demonstrating the exceptional performance of Mobil SHC Gear 320 WT advanced wind turbine gear lubricant, and gaining the approval of leading gearbox builders globally.
"Wind industry is a growing market with a large number of new entrants tapping this segment. Mobil’s synthetic lubricants are designed to help in advancing productivity, which help mitigate potential employee risks arising from direct contact with equipment, helps in reducing carbon footprint, achieve the operational goals and enhance competitiveness by increasing efficiency, reliability and productivity. Our products provide excellent protection against wear, rust and corrosion adding to improved performance, longevity of equipment and wind turbine productivity,’ said Glen Sharkowicz, Industrial Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Asia Pacific Pte.
