Mobil SHC Cibus™ 220 gear oil in dairy production success story

apv-homogenizer-dairy-production

Situation

Xi'an Yinqiao Dairy Group specializes in producing liquid milk and milk powder. In their preprocessing workshop, they have 12 sets of APV Homogenizers that require high-performance gear oil because of the severe conditions. The third party gear oil in use was causing a short oil drain interval.

Recommendation

The Mobil Lube Engineer conducted on-site inspections and recommended Mobil SHC Cibus™ 220 and a series of Mobil Engineering Services including a plant study and lube clinic. Mobil SHC Cibus 220 was recommended because it is an NSF H1-registered food machinery lubricant with high performance that helps to extend machinery life and reduce maintenance costs.

Result

With the implementation of Mobil SHC Cibus 220, the oil drain interval was extended by 1.5 times, compared to the previously used third party oil. In addition, an annual savings of US $2,030 was achieved.

The benefits resulted from:

  • Extension of oil drain interval
  • Reduction in purchasing cost
  • Reduction of downtime and increased productivity
  • Reduction of lubricant-food contamination risk

*This success story is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
