Ensuring profitability while maintaining good equipment health is accelerating customers towards choosing superior lubrication solutions.
The Indian manufacturing sector is playing a driving role in fulfilling the government’s vision of achieving an Aatmanirbhar Bharat. With consistent policy incentives, India has strong potential to emerge as a global manufacturing hub in the foreseeable future. Pivoting the country’s growth story, the manufacturing sector is, consequently, focusing on the advancement of machinery and equipment – essential for efficient operations. Growing use of superior equipment such as air compressors, centrifuges, industrial mixers, material handling equipment, among others, are also driving the demand for superior lubrication formulations that can maintain equipment health.
Superior lubrication formulations are, today, playing a driving role in maintaining equipment health, reducing downtime and enabling greater efficiency, productivity and profitability. As an industry leader, Mobil™ Lubricants is driving innovation here in formulating the most advanced lubrication solutions that cater to evolving trends and help businesses achieve their full potential
Superior lubrication for equipment health
The use of advanced machinery plays a critical role in the success of manufacturing operations, and it is, thus, critical to maintain their health for consistent and unhindered performance. Now, ensuring profitability while maintaining good equipment health is accelerating customers towards choosing superior lubrication solutions. Mobil has been at the forefront of lubrication innovation for more than 150 years and has formulated solutions such as the Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ Series to help reduce power consumption and increase machine output. The hydraulic oils under this series help keep modern hydraulic systems cleaner for longer as compared to conventional hydraulic oils. They have been proven to boost hydraulic efficiency by up to 6 per cent, which can decrease power consumption and increase system responsiveness by a significant amount*.
Additionally, Mobil’s premium quality slideway oils under the Mobil Vactra™ Oil Numbered Series have been specifically designed to meet the requirements of accuracy, aqueous coolant separability, and equipment protection of precision machine tools. The unique additive package provides exceptional frictional properties on a wide variety of way materials, including steel-on steel and steel-on-polymer. It also reduces stick-slip and chatter – ensuring smooth, uniform motion at design travel speeds, enhancing machine productivity and accuracy, while also aiding prolonged tool life and enhanced surface finish.
In the manufacturing sector, single and multistage air compressors too play a critical role. They are operated for long periods under continuous high temperature, often leading to increased deposits in discharge systems, multiplied potential for fire and explosions, and decreased overall performance. Keeping the same in mind, Mobil has developed the Mobil Rarus™ 400 Series – a line of premium performance ashless air compressor lubricants that has been designed to meet stringent requirements of major compressor manufacturers. These lubricants have been carefully curated using high quality mineral base oils that provide exceptional equipment protection and reliability for compressors operating under mild to severe conditions.
Next-gen services for the new world
The world is moving towards adopting artificial intelligence and digitalising operations with every passing day. Next-gen superior monitoring tools are, thus, an imperative in maintaining oil health and diagnostics for heavy-duty machinery. Mobil, to counter the setbacks in profitability and energy efficiency born out of delayed diagnosis of machine lubrication conditions, is providing Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) program – helping operators manage oil analysis as much as 66% faster – translating into two-thirds savings in expected time**.
Mobil strongly believes that machines hold the secrets to maximum efficiency and profitability and provides Mobil Serv℠ IIoT Insights for owners to unlock the untapped potential of their equipment. The advanced cutting-edge technology provides a real-time data stream on oil health and alerts so that one can act as soon as issues are detected, saving significant cost and time. The technology integrates the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to help operators acquire a better understanding of their machines, simplify decision-making with precise data, and navigate an ever-changing industry with confidence.
As manufacturing promises to remain relevant in the years to come, businesses in the sector too will remain focused on opting for the most advanced technology and lubrication solutions. Mobil’s legacy of servicing India’s manufacturing sector will continue, as it has, with a range of product and service solutions that together guarantee optimum equipment performance.
*The energy efficiency of Mobil DTE 10 Excel relates solely to the fluid performance when compared to conventional Mobil-branded hydraulic fluids. The technology used allows up to 6% increase in hydraulic pump efficiency when tested in standard hydraulic applications under controlled conditions. The energy efficiency claim for this product is based on test results on the use of the fluid conducted in accordance with all applicable industry standards and protocol. Results may vary based on operating conditions and equipment.
**This performance is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results may vary.
