ExxonMobil announced that the new Mobilgear 600 XP Series of premium industrial gear oils will be introduced worldwide. Formulated to deliver exceptional, long-lasting protection for industrial gearboxes, Mobilgear 600 XP can help industrial companies become more competitive in global markets by raising their productivity.
"Gearbox technology has advanced significantly in recent years. As a result, maintenance professionals are demanding higher-performance gear oils that can enhance the durability and performance of gearboxes," said Jeff Biamonte, ExxonMobil's global industrial advisor. "At the same time, gear industry groups, gearbox and equipment manufacturers continue to introduce new specifications and equipment designs which impose ever higher demands on gear lubricants."
With its advanced and balanced formulation, Mobilgear 600 XP delivers exceptional performance over the long haul, even under the most demanding operating conditions, surpassing the industry's most demanding specifications, such as Flender BA Table 7300 A, DIN 51517 Part 3 and AGMA 9005 E02.
Mobilgear 600 XP is formulated to minimize wear and enhance the performance of all critical gearbox components - including gears, bearings and seals.
By providing exceptional wear protection, Mobilgear 600 XP helps control micropitting and other forms of gear wear. Its balanced formulation improves bearing and corrosion protection while remaining compatible with commonly used gearbox sealing materials. Furthermore, Mobilgear 600 XP is designed to significantly reduce the formation of oil degradation by-products that often lead to frequent oil changes.
Robert Errichello, a gear failure analysis expert and head of GEARTECH consulting firm based in the United States, stated, "All gear metallurgies are susceptible to wear, and without the appropriate lubrication, this can lead to machine failure. Gear oils need to have basestocks and additives that are properly balanced to protect against micropitting, macropitting, scuffing and corrosion."
"Maintenance and production professionals continue to seek ways to increase productivity and reduce costs by maximizing the reliability of their equipment. Mobilgear 600 XP offers them a huge advance in this quest," said Dr. Tim Nadasdi, ExxonMobil's product technical advisor.
