Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 success story: Guangdong GITIC Green Island Co. Ltd.

Coal on conveyor belt

Situation

Guangdong GITIC Green Island Co., Ltd operates a cement production line with an annual capacity of 1 million tons. One of the plant’s key pieces of equipment is the mineral conveyor gearbox that runs high loads in a dusty environment.  The operating conditions were causing excess heat (wasted energy).

Recommendation

The Mobil Lube Engineer conducted on-site inspections and recommended

Mobil SHC™ Gear 320 high viscosity gear oil and the Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis program. As Mobil SHC Gear 320 has low traction coefficient, high viscosity index and excellent high-temperature oxidation stability, it is able to help improve equipment energy efficiency and extend oil drain intervals.

Result

Since implementing Mobil SHC Gear 320 in conjunction with the Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis program, the operating temperature of the gearbox reduced by 5°C while the average power consumption has been lowered by 0.0449 kwh/T. An annual savings of US $3,945 has also been achieved.
