Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5w-40 - the introduction of the synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil, has provided several significant performance benefits for Mexican customer Construplan, including the reduction of oil consumption and the extension of oil drain intervals this being a major improvement and advantage for the company in reducing unexpected expenditure. Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5w-40 is part of ExxonMobil’s broad range of high performance, top quality lubricants and services which have been specially designed and perfected to help maximise the safety and productivity of mine site operations when related to conventional mineral oils.
Construplan operates more than 40 pieces of heavy-duty machinery at the La Herradura mine, located in Sonora Desert of Mexico. Equipment and machinery such as large trucks, heavy-duty pickups and excavators all rely solely on Mobil lubricants and oils - synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil. The equipment is often exposed to extreme conditions - ranging from 50 degrees Celsius (125⁰ F) in the summer to -10⁰ C in the winter (-14⁰F).
Since applying Mobil Delvac 1 in its operations, Construplan has reported significant benefits, which include enhanced equipment performance, improved fuel economy, extended oil drain intervals and a significant increase in uptime. As a result of all of these benefits, the company say they have been able to reduce oil consumption, minimise used oil waste, and take advantage of the overall productivity of their equipment. In other words, by switching to the Mobil Delvac 1 series, Construplan have made significant savings compared to the previous series of products used in their machinery.
The Mobil Delvac 1 Series of heavy-duty engine oils are part of a complete offer to the mining industry, which include Mobil SHC™ synthetic oil and greases, and Mobil DTE™ Series high performance hydraulic fluids. These products are scientifically formulated to help mining companies reach the high standard of safety and productivity related goals. The Mobil Delvac 1 Series can deliver a range of performance benefits, including prolonged equipment life, improved energy efficiency saving and an extended oil life when paralleled to conventional mineral oils.
The Mobil industrial range of lubricants includes:
- Mobil SHC™ 600 Series The leading edge technology on which Mobil SHC 600 Series lubricants have always been based has made these the products of choice for operators of a wide range of equipment, worldwide. While initially recognized as a high temperature problem solver, these products are now used in many industrial applications because of the range of benefits they offer.
- Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ Series - Formulated with extensive laboratory and in-service field testing, the Mobil DTE 10 Excel series can help provide quantifiable increases in hydraulic efficiency compared to other ExxonMobil’s hydraulic oils. This can translate to reduced power consumption or increased machine output, resulting in monetary savings.
- Mobilgrease XHPTM MINE Series Mobilgrease XHP 100 Mine, 320 Mine, 321 Mine, and 322 Mine were specifically designed to meet the needs of off-highway and mining equipment that required exceptional EP / anti-wear performance and which would remain in place even in tough conditions of water spray, high sliding, and high temperatures.
“With mining equipment often subjected to extremely heavy loads and operating in challenging environments, mine operators can sometimes find it challenging to find the right solutions that will help enhance efficiency and increase productivity,” said Umut Urkun, Industrial Lubricants Marketing Advisor Europe, Africa & Middle East, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants.
“We have worked closely with mining professionals for more than 50 years to obtain the necessary insights required to formulate products that help to maximise productivity in a safe and cost-efficient way.”
Alongside its high quality lubricants, ExxonMobil offers its exclusive online oil analysis service, Signum™ Oil Analysis.
