Mobil™ Lubricants has been serving the construction industry for several decades. Driving innovation and technology, Mobil has been at the forefront of ensuring successful operations that can accrue benefits while ensuring efficiency. Whether in formulating superior products or extending valuable support through dedicated customer servicing – Mobil attends to industry needs with a firm eye of productivity and profitability.
Service with timely care
Lubricants play a driving role in ensuring seamless construction operations. In this milieu, timely oil analysis becomes an important step towards achieving the full potential of equipment performance and business profitability. The Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) program, a benchmark in core lubrication services, has been developed to spearhead precise and informed recommendations. MSLA offers a distinct advantage in conducting oil sampling up to 66% faster than peers*– translating into two-thirds savings in expected time.
The conventional process of collecting and labelling samples typically requires 24 labor hours per month, with significant time spent in printing and filling-out labels. To streamline the sampling and labelling process, Mobil has developed an alternative maintenance solution. 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 labor and time requirements.
When the sample is processed, the laboratory handles each bottle as a unique item. Each sample is coded, labelled and tracked through the entire process. The equipment sample directly benefits from Mobil’s knowledge of lubricants, decades of relationships with original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and a strong heritage of application expertise. MSLA also enables companies to conduct the entire process virtually on their mobile or tablet device through scan-and-go oil sampling bottles. It provides informative reports on the condition of the customer’s equipment and lubricants.
Lubrication that guarantees performance
With servicing in place, choosing the right lubricant becomes imperative. Mobil’s diesel engine oils under the Mobil Delvac™ Modern Super Fleet (API CI-4 PLUS) have been providing reliable solutions to businesses in the construction sector. These synthetic blend engine oils deliver excellent wear protection and high-temperature performance. Similarly, Mobil’s greases have also shown proven results in improving regreasing intervals, enhancing equipment life and providing exceptional protection even in extreme conditions. For instance, the Mobilgrease XHP™ 460 Series greases are extended service lithium complex greases intended for a wide variety of heavy-duty applications and operating conditions. These greases were designed to outperform conventional products by applying high performance proprietary lithium complex manufacturing technology. They are formulated to provide excellent high temperature performance with excellent adhesion, structural stability and resistance to water contamination.
Under this, the Mobilgrease XHP™ 462 Moly is fortified with 3% molybdenum disulfide and is particularly recommended for applications such as bucket pins and fifth wheels, where molybdenum disulphide provides an extra level of protection where sliding friction and oscillating motion can lead to rupturing of the oil film, resulting in metal-to-metal contact.
In today’s market of multiple options, choosing the correct lubricant that caters to specific equipment challenges while guaranteeing long-term results in improved productivity and profitability becomes imperative. Mobil’s solutions aim to fulfil these customer needs through cutting-edge products and expert guidance in selecting lubricants and also maintaining them at minimum costs.
