Mr. Shankar Karnik, Asia Pacific Mobil SHC Brand Manager, ExxonMobil Lubricants Pvt. Ltd & Paul Grives, Global Services & Grease Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company
Mr. Paul Grives, Global Services & Grease Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company, stated that advanced technology lubricants and greases help protect and extend equipment life, which in turn significantly helps minimize the need to purchase new equipment and associated maintenance, disposal and replacement. While emphasizing on sustainability, he informed, “ExxonMobil recognizes the importance of addressing sustainability in today’s global marketplace – balancing economic growth, social development and environmental protection. Sustainability as related to industrial lubricants is an interesting dichotomy since being based on crude oil as a raw material for both mineral and synthetic based lubricants, lubricants appear to be the opposite of sustainability. Conversely, without industrial lubricants, future economic growth would not be possible. The resolution to this dichotomy comes in the form of energy and energy management. Industrial lubricants and greases play a key role in the effective management of energy whether we talk of energy efficient lubricants and lubricants supporting renewable energy production, long life or fill-for-life lubricants to lubricants offering excellent equipment protection.”
Mr. Shankar Karnik, Mobil SHC Brand Manager- Asia Pacific, said, “Customers rely on ExxonMobil because of the quality of our products, our reliability, technological excellence and close association with many leading original equipment manufacturers and builders. Our products have demonstrated the ability to withstand performance stresses and are backed by technical services designed to provide customers with smooth operations.”
He continued, “Backed by more than 100 years of industry expertise, Mobil-branded greases are expertly formulated to meet a wide variety of operating conditions in both industrial and mobile equipment, including extreme applications such as high and low temperatures; water contamination; heavy or shock loads; or variable speeds. Mobil greases are available in a range of viscosity grades to offer our customers added choice and flexibility. Mobil Industrial Lubricants offered portfolio of greases in India includes MobilithSHC™, Mobil SHC Polyrex™, Mobil Centaur XHP™, Mobilgrease XHP™ 461/462, Mobilgrease XHP™ 222 and Mobilgrease XHP™ 222 Special.”
The gentlemen also talked about the concept of “Advancing Productivity” and “Global Mining Program.” While the former focuses on how ExxonMobil’s innovative products and services help deliver tangible performance benefits in the areas of safety, environmental care and productivity, the latter emphasizes on how the mining sector is one of the most fundamental components of the industrial landscape in India, and also one of the most challenging from a lubrication standpoint.
