Mobil SHC™ 629 gear oil in textile industry success story

Mill comber textile


PT. Indah Jaya Textile Industry operates two Lakshmi Machine Works, Limited (LMW) Comber LK 64 machines. Lubricated by a third party synthetic oil, the gearboxes of the Comber machines were running at a relatively high temperature of 56°C. The oil drain interval was also unsatisfactorily clocked at 3,000 hours.


The Mobil Lube Engineer analyzed the situation and recommended Mobil SHC™ 629 oil, an exceptional performance gear and bearing oil. Further technical advice and support was provided by the Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis program.


After deploying Mobil SHC 629 gear oil, an annual savings of about US $2,240 has been achieved. The benefits resulted from:

  • Extension of the oil drain interval from 3,000 hours to 6,000 hours
  • Reduction in average machine operating temperature of 9°C

*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.
