How to increase efficiency for construction equipment with Mobil Lubricants - case study

According to the "Ziarul Financiar" publication, 2015 seems to be the first year where the construction market as increased after the depression. The data from the Romanian Construction Entrepreneurs' Association presented here confirms this aspect, especially since the first trimester of 2015 has registered an increase in the volume of constructions, compared to the same period of 2014.

Construction equipment represents one of the main aspects that directly influences the development of this sectos, especially since their functioning at maximum capacity will help you meet deadlines and at the same time reduce costs with maintenance.

A powerful ally for developers in the field of construction are the lubricants used for commercial vehicles and agriculture equipment, available in Romania through Star Lubricants.

They help your equipment work at maximum capacity for longer and offer important benefits related to savings from maintenance costs.

Please find below 3 case studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of these lubricants in the case of 3 companies in the field of constructions.

1. Savings of $82.000 for a construction company

In the case of a construction company in Egipt, ExxonMobil has recommended switching from Mobilux EP 2, to Mobilgrease XHP 222 for bearings in the construction equipment used.

The grease with a basal Lythium Litiu Complex has brought significant benefit to the equipment, thus managing to:

  • Double the grease change interval,
  • Considerably increase bearing lifespan,
  • Protect equipment from oxydation and corrosion.

The equipment has been monitored for 2 years, during which the company has registered total savings of $82.000.

2. Performance even at low temperatures with Mobil Delvac 1 SHC 5W-40

A construction company in Russia has chosen for their crane a high performance synthetic oil, Mobil Delvac 1 SHC 5W-40. The crane functioned for 800 hours, during which the oil has protected its engine. During this period there has been an improvement in the engine cleanse parameters.

Functioning in a cold environment, the purpose was also to ensure the cold start puts less pressure on the engine and Mobil Delvac 1 SHC 5W-40 offered protection even in the frequent below 0 temperatures.

Thus, it's not only the oil consumption that reduced for the crane but also the idle times caused by the very low temperatures.

3. Fuel saving of 7.5%

Switching from Mobil Delvac MX 15W-40 to Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 for a VolvoA35D truck, an equipment that worked in extreme conditions (dust, big temperature variations and intensive exploitation), brought a fuel saving of 7,5%.

Also, the oil change interval doubled from 500 hours of work to 1000 hours for this particular equipment.

The characteristics of the new Mobil Delvac 1 LE 5W-30 formulation have brought the construction company annual savings of over $5000 / truck.

The 3 cases above demonstrate the performance of Mobil lubricants for construction equipment. By using these lubricants you ensure the endurance of bearings even if used at high speeds and in case of extreme loading conditions, particular to the construction sector. Moreover, you will increase the oil change interval and support fuel economy.
