Mobilgear SHC XMP Series High performance, synthetic industrial gear oils are designed to provide optimum equipment protection and oil life even under extreme conditions. Mobil’s polyalphaolefin (PAO) technology has been selected for its exceptional oxidation resistance and thermal properties, naturally high viscosity index, excellent low temperature fluidity and absence of undesirable compounds that are often found in mineral oils. The high viscosity index and low traction coefficient of this oil combine to help provide significant reduction in power consumption in many gear drives. Mobilgear SHC XMP Series lubricants contain an advanced and carefully blended proprietary additive system designed to provide excellent protection against conventional wear modes such as scuffing and provide a high level of resistance against micropitting fatigue. In addition, compared to conventional gear oil chemistries, they offer the potential for improved lubrication of gearbox rolling element bearings. Mobilgear SHC XMP Series products offer outstanding rust and corrosion protection in applications where salt water and acidic water protection are required. These products provide outstanding filter life even when moderately wet and have excellent compatibility with ferrous and non-ferrous metals even at elevated temperatures.
Mobilgear SHC XMP lubricants are recommended for enclosed industrial gear drives including steel-on-steel spur, helical, and bevel gears. They are highly recommended in applications that may be subject to micropitting: especially heavily loaded gearboxes with surface-hardened tooth metallurgies. They may also be used in gear applications where extreme low and/or high temperatures are encountered and applications where corrosion may be severe.
Because of their unique mix of properties, including resistance to micropitting wear, and their performance in tough applications and wide temperature range, Mobilgear SHC XMP Series products enjoy a growing reputation among customers and OEMs around the world.
Features and Benefits
The Mobil brand lubricants designated as SHC are recognized and appreciated around the world for innovation and outstanding performance. These molecular design PAO synthetic products, pioneered by our research scientists, symbolize the continuing commitment to using advanced technology to provide outstanding products. A key factor in the development of the Mobilgear SHC XMP Series was the close contacts between our scientists and application specialists with key OEMs to ensure that our product offerings will provide exceptional performance with rapidly evolving industrial gear designs and operation.
Our work with equipment builders has helped confirm the results from our own laboratory tests showing the exceptional performance of the Mobilgear SHC XMP Series lubricants. Not least among the benefits shown in work with OEMs is the ability to resist micropitting wear which can occur with some highly loaded, case-hardened gearing applications. This cooperative work also demonstrated the all-round balanced performance benefits for the new Mobilgear SHC XMP technology, including a wide temperature range of application.
To address the issue of micropitting gear wear, our product formulation scientists designed a proprietary combination of additives which would resist traditional gear wear mechanisms as well as protecting against micropitting. Our formulators chose proprietary PAO synthetic base oils to provide exceptional oil life and deposit control and resistance to thermal/oxidative and chemical degradation, as well as the balance of the performance features. The wax-free nature of the synthetic base oil also provides low temperature fluidity characteristics unmatched by mineral products and is a key benefit for remote, low ambient, applications. The Mobilgear SHC XMP Series lubricants offer the following benefits:
• Superb protection from micropitting fatigue wear as well as high resistance to traditional scuffing wear, Extended gear and bearing life in enclosed gear drives operating under extreme conditions of load, speed and temperature, Reduced unexpected downtime and less maintenance – especially critical for difficult to access gearboxes.
