Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 32 helps steel mill with hydraulic oil success story

Steel factory


A Finnish steel mill endured ongoing problems lubricating a blast furnace dust removal fan hydraulic system in winter conditions. To help operations in low temperatures, the system required extra electric heating and the use of tarpaulins. Maintenance personnel asked Mobil engineers to identify a hydraulic fluid capable of efficient operation in extreme temperature environments.


Mobil engineers recommended Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 32 hydraulic oil to improve blast furnace performance. Formulated with a shear stable, high viscosity index; Mobil DTE 10 Excel 32 oil is designed to perform in a wide range of extreme temperatures.


Mobil DTE 10 Excel 32 hydraulic oil delivered outstanding performance despite extreme conditions, operating efficiently in ambient temperatures as low as -27°C and during extended periods below -15°C. Furthermore, maintenance personnel were no longer forced to rely on tarpaulins or supplemental heating. By improving cold weather hydraulic system operation, Mobil DTE 10 Excel 32 hydraulic oil helped the steel mill improve production reliability and generate savings through lower heater energy consumption and related maintenance labor costs.

The product performance of Mobil DTE 10 Excel 32 oil, alongside the application expertise provided by local Mobil engineering support, is helping to improve customer productivity potential.
