Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil success story

Annual savings of

$2,000

Hydraulic oil for pressure pipe machinery

Situation

Orient Ceramics & Industries Ltd. uses a Dowty hydraulic gear pump in their slip hydraulic system. Lubricated by a non-Mobil™ hydraulic oil, the pump was experiencing a short oil drain interval of about 7,200 hours and a pump life of 3,600 hours.

Recommendation

The Mobil Lube Engineer analyzed the situation and recommended Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil. This recommendation was supported by Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis monitoring.

Result

With the deployment of Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 hydraulic oil, the oil drain interval and the replacement interval of the Dowty gear pump have doubled. This has led to reduction in the usage of hydraulic gear pump oil and filters and improved hydraulic gear pump life. In total, the company managed to save US $2,000 annually.
