"Many of our advanced-technology lubricants lower overall traction versus mineral oils, thereby, helping to reduce the amount of fuel or energy consumed while operating, and have the potential to reduce energy costs and associated emissions."

Lubricants have become imperative to catalyze growth and advance productivity of various large enterprises and small and medium enterprises operating in the construction sector.

The demand for industrial lubricants has been directly proportional to various developments in a plethora of industries ranging from infrastructure to mining. With these industries undergoing constant developments, demand for lubricants has increased manifold.

We, at ExxonMobil™, have witnessed a surging demand for industrial lubricants. Our comprehensive range of lubricants and greases are formulated to deliver exceptional performance and equipment protection for their intended applications. Backed by years of industry expertise, the team behind Mobil™ Industrial Lubricants continues to set new benchmarks in lubrication excellence to help its customers. The three critical areas of value with which we are identified, and which have led to wide acceptability and demand for our products are Safety, Environmental Care, and Productivity.

As the overall productivity and profitability of the mining and construction industry is directly linked to the reliability of the equipment, it is vital that operators have equipment that function at maximum efficiency. Stationary equipment such as impact crushers, processing plants, and conveyor belts play a key role at mining sites. This invariably drives the growth for industrial lubricants in these specific sectors.

ExxonMobil has been at the forefront of lubricant technology innovation for more than 150 years.

Today, we continue to develop new lubrication solutions for technologies of the future, by delivering an extensive range of leading technical services to help our customers optimize their maintenance programs, enhance equipment perform- ance and ensure safety. Being an industry leader in synthetic lubricants, we have a full range of products that are available in the automotive, commercial, and industrial business sectors.

In India, we engage in the distribution, sales and marketing of Mobil-branded lubricants and offer innovative technical solutions. We cater to a range of industries from mining, infrastructure, steel and manufacturing across large and small enterprises.

Each year, ExxonMobil globally invests around $1 billion in R&D alone.

Research & Development is at the core of our culture of innovation and customization. As a company, we place tremendous emphasis on R&D, working side-by-side with the world’s leading OEMs to develop the most effective products and maintenance solutions. This process of innovation begins in our Research & Engineering facilities and is conducted by working closely with leading equipment manufactures to provide customers with products that have global consistency.

Buyers usually go for lubrication programs that help them achieve their goals of productivity, profitability, safety, and environmental protection.

An energy-efficient lubrication program covers good lubrication practices and choosing lubricants that help the operations in an industrial unit become energy smart and efficient. The highly trained representatives at ExxonMobil work closely with buyers to explore and understand how advanced lubrication programs can help them achieve their business goals.

We support buyers’ decision making on four questions: How can power related costs be lowered? How can equipment life be enhanced? How can safety be ensured through minimized maintenance risk? How can the impact on the environment be minimized? An effective lubrication program answers these questions by optimizing energy efficiency to reduce power costs, minimizing the carbon footprint of client operations to reduce impact on the environment, minimizing operating temperature to enhance equipment life, and ensuring workplace safety through long oil drain intervals and lower operating temperatures.

Mobil™ industrial lubricants are specially formulated to protect equipment in the harshest conditions.

Mobil’s proven products and lubrication expertise keeps stationary and mobile equipment working at maximum efficiency, extending equipment life, oil drain intervals and improving the energy efficiency of equipment. Some of the key offerings from ExxonMobil™ for the mining sector are:
  • Mobilgrease XHP™ Mine Series: These were specifically designed to meet the needs of off-highway and mining equipment that require exceptional EP / anti-wear performance, and which would remain in place even in tough conditions of high sliding and high temperatures.
  • Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ Series: In spite being mineral hydraulic oils, they provide outstanding hydraulic system efficiency; ultra-keep clean performance, and a high degree of fluid durability. The hydraulic efficiency feature can lead to reduced energy consumption for both industrial and mobile equipment, reducing operating costs and improving productivity.
  • Mobil Delvac™ diesel engine oils: This is among the broad line of synthetic and high-performance mineral oil-based lubricants for many specialized needs of the mining industry.
  • ExxonMobil Optimized Oil Drain Interval (ODI) Process is driven by data, powered by Mobil Delvac lubricants and supported by the ExxonMobil team. It helps operators to lower total operating costs, generate a higher return on capital, and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. The key feature of Mobil Delvac is its excellent detergency property, which provides clean engine performance to customers.
  • Mobil SHC™ 600 Series: These lubricants are exceptional performance, gear and bearing synthetic oils, designed to provide outstanding equipment protection, oil life and problem-free operation to enable increased customer productivity. These products are resistant to mechanical shear, even in heavily loaded gear and high shear bearing applications, so that there is almost no loss of viscosity.
Mobil ServSM Technical Services offer an extensive range of industrial services designed to help customers optimize their lubrication programs and machine availability.

Few of the services under this range include:
  • Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis (MSLA): Used Oil Analysis (UOA) is the bedrock of any successful equipment maintenance strategy but deriving the right oil analysis insights depends on knowing what signals to look for in the results. MSLA service is an effective oil analysis monitoring program that enables companies to conduct virtually the entire process on their mobile or tablet device through scan-and-go oil sampling bottles. This approach greatly improves the service’s ease and efficiency, freeing up valuable man hours for other purposes.
  • Engine Inspection: This service encompasses inspections by Mobil’s well-trained engineers using borescopes and specialized tools that help diesel engines run efficiently with potentially extended life. The engineers inspect, report and document the condition of the internal components of diesel engines.
  • Hydraulic Inspection: This service details critical hydraulic equipment, revealing opportunities to improve performance. The engineers inspect, report and document the condition of the critical plant hydraulic systems.
  • Lubricant Recommendation: This service provides expert guidance in selecting the proper lubricants for the equipment, which can help minimize costly maintenance and repairs while providing optimum protection to the assets.
ExxonMobil’s commitment towards sustainable practices involve efficient use of resources – human, environmental and operational.

ExxonMobil’s commitment to energy-efficiency has helped minimise environmental impact through its technologically advanced products and services. This has been enabled through optimized oil drain intervals, which in turn helps reduce used oil volumes and product packaging.

We at ExxonMobil™ aim to develop breakthrough technologies that have a positive impact on society in a manner that is safe for our employees, communities and the environment. Long component life helps reduce worn equipment disposal and maintenance-related waste, accruing energy efficiency benefits. Many of our advanced-technology lubricants lower overall traction versus mineral oils, thereby, helping to reduce the amount of fuel or energy consumed while operating, and have the potential to reduce energy costs and associated emissions.
