SHCGearMobil SHC™ Gear

Next-generation gear lubricants

Enhance your productivity with Mobil SHC Gear synthetic industrial gear oils — next-generation technology providing superb equipment protection and oil life under extreme conditions.

Greater energy efficiency up to 3.6%
With a high viscosity index and low traction coefficient, Mobil SHC Gear significantly reduces energy consumption in many gearboxes — up to 3.6% versus conventional oil in statistically validated laboratory tests.*

Major OEMs acknowledge that Mobil SHC Gear delivers key improvements while maintaining its balanced performance.

Features & Potential Benefits

• Helps extend gear and bearing life in enclosed gear drives operating under extreme conditions of load, speed and temperature
• Helps reduce unplanned downtime; less maintenance – especially critical for difficult to access gearboxes.
• Helps extend oil life and drain intervals and reduce oil consumption, lowering maintenance costs
• Reduced energy consumption and lower operating temperatures
• Ability to operate at both high and low temperatures: especially critical in remote applications with no oil cooling or heating
• Smooth, trouble-free operation at high temperatures or in applications subject to water contamination
• Excellent compatibility with soft metals
• Helps extend gear and bearing life
• Fewer filter changes; helps to reduce maintenance costs
• Less contamination and lower potential oil leakage
• Easy changeover from most mineral products
