In today's globally competitive business landscape, manufacturers feel constantly challenged to get the most out of their equipment. Even incremental increases in machine productivity can alter a profit/loss scenario - often the primary, if not the only consideration in many businesses. Also, in a world increasingly conditioned by a heightened awareness of environmental impact, concerns with the latter demand focus on sustainable business practices and energy efficient systems. In response, industrial and mobile equipment hydraulic systems have become smaller and lighter, and utilise higher pressures to achieve maximum system efficiency.
For instance, while gear lubrication has been commonly considered elementary, it is in fact, a dynamic process requiring sophisticated technology interventions. The differentials that house the gears are out of sight, and therefore, out of mind - a neglected process. But differentials are just as important to the operation of a vehicle as the engine is. An engine without a functioning differential will not move the vehicle. This is why advanced hydraulic fluids are now available, contributing to the overall hydraulic system and energy efficiency.
Apollo Tyres has been in the business of manufacture and sale of tyres since its inception in 1972. The company has a manufacturing presence in Asia, Europe and Africa, with nine modern tyre facilities and exports to over 118 countries. The company offers a comprehensive product portfolio spread across passenger car, light truck, truck-bus, off highway and bicycle tyres, retreading material and retreaded tyres. The company firmly believes that to truly move up the value chain, it is critical to use fewer natural resources while optimising its manufacturing output. For a growing organisation with a long-term focus and commitment, it is critical to safeguard resources for the future even as it creates value today. This is why Apollo is committed to the cautious and careful use of natural resources.
In 2012, Apollo Tyres experienced the benefits of using Mobil premium mineral lubricants in one of their Feed Mill Gearboxes which resulted in a steep drop in temperature, seal life enhancement and significant overall lubrication cost reduction. Thus, Apollo Tyres was satisfied with the services provided by ExxonMobil. But then, Mobil Industrial Lubricants had much more in store for its treasured customer. Keeping "Sustainability in Motion" and as a result of ExxonMobil's technical approach to Apollo Tyres, they wanted to experience energy conservation by using Mobil synthetic lubricants in their critical applications.
Cracker Mill Gearbox(202) was chosen to demonstrate "Energy Efficiency" by using Mobil SHC 600 Series, a fully synthetic gear lubricant offering following key benefits;
ExxonMobil Engineers recommended Apollo Tyres to replace the cracker mill gearbox with Mobil SHC 634 a fully synthetic gear lubricant with energy efficient benefits to customers and provided series of tech¡nical services such as thermal imaging of the gearbox and incorporate power logger to measure energy consumption during operation. The gearbox was registered under SIGNUM program to monitor condition of the equipment and Mobil SHC 634.
Today, Mobil Industrial Lubricants are used extensively in many industrial market sectors.
