Superior lubricants for profitable manufacturing

Superior lubricants for profitable manufacturing

August 1, 2022 12:03 pm

While lubricants drive smooth manufacturing operations, they require servicing support and in-timely oil analysis to achieve the full potential of equipment performance.

Exhibiting immense potential for growth, India’s manufacturing sector has the prospects to become a global hub by 2030 by adding more than USD 500 billion annually to the global economy ( manufacturing-sector-india). With effective government policies coupled with robust demand both within the country and abroad, the future of the manufacturing sector seems promising. As the industry progresses, businesses are also lending more careful attention to specific issues in curtailing breakdowns, ensuring equipment quality and longevity, and aspiring for overall efficiency in operations. Thus, guaranteeing the health of the machine shop and its equipment becomes a primary goal.


Lubrication formulations and services to assure continuity in machine performance have been consistent partners for core industries like manufacturing. Leading players, like Mobil™ Lubricants, are driving innovation and technological advancements to support businesses in maintaining overall operational health. With its legacy of over 150 years, Mobil has been a frontrunner in ensuring seamless manufacturing operations through superior products and dedicated servicing solutions that assure productivity, profitability and energy efficiency.


Premium choices for energy-efficiency

 Lubrication solutions provide a range of benefits in improving machine performance, reducing downtime, curtailing negative environment fallouts, improving safety conditions, and more. Bringing years of expertise and best-inclass innovation, Mobil has developed a range of solutions for the sector. For instance, the Mobil DTE 10 ExcelTM  Series is a breakthrough range of lubricants that have been developed to reduce machine maintenance costs while increasing output. These hydraulic fluids help keep hydraulic systems cleaner and longer than conventional hydraulic fuels. They are proven to boost hydraulic efficiency by up to 6 per cent, decreasing power consumption and increasing system responsiveness*. They are also highly effective in reducing downtime and saving energy.


Another significant member of Mobil’s varied product portfolio, the Mobil Vactra™ Oil Numbered Series, showcases excellent lubricity and loadcarrying performance, contributing effectively to improving the production of quality parts. The Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series provides separability from many water and aqueous coolants, reducing the potential negative effects of cross-contamination. It also helps enhance the service life and performance of the lubricant and coolant. It has been carefully formulated from high-quality base stocks and performance balanced with an advanced additive system that provides:


  • Controlled frictional properties. 
  • Compatibility with aqueous metal working fluids. 
  • Corrosion protection of parts and equipment


Service for long-life 

While lubricants drive smooth manufacturing operations, they require servicing support and in-timely oil analysis to achieve the full potential of equipment performance and increase business profitability. Here, the Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) program has been developed to spearhead precise and informed oil monitoring and analysis and assist manufacturing businesses in evolving their core practices for better efficiency. Collecting and labelling samples typically require 24 hours per month, with significant time spent printing and filling out labels. This calls for streamlining. Here, MSLA steps in. The MSLA program eliminates the time-consuming sample labelling process by delivering pre-labelled sample bottles with QR codes and a unique number identifier. This allows no additional sample labelling, improves sample process efficiency, and reduces labour and time requirements. The equipment sample also benefits from Mobil’s knowledge of lubricants, decades of relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and a strong heritage of application expertise.

MSLA also offers a distinct advantage in conducting oil sampling up to 66 per cent faster than peers*– translating into two-thirds savings in the expected time. Further, it enables companies to run the entire process virtually on their mobile or tablet device through scan-and-go oil sampling bottles and provides informative reports on the condition of the customer’s equipment and lubricants.

In aiding the expansion of India’s manufacturing sector, the choice of industrial lubricants makes a visible difference. As a committed partner to innovating for core industries, Mobil will continue to associate closely with businesses in the sector and achieve overall productivity and profitability for the economy.

*The energy efficiency of Mobil DTE 10 Excel relates solely to the fluid performance when compared to conventional Mobil-branded hydraulic fluids. The technology allows up to a 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 fluid use conducted in accordance with all applicable industry standards and protocols. Results may vary based on operating conditions and equipment.
