Dalian Cement switches to synthetic lubricant

A change in lubrication on the hammer crusher bearings at Dalian Cement Group Co. has helped the company reduce operating costs. According to a press release from ExxonMobil, the Chinese cement maker saved US$153 000 annually by converting the lubrication on the bearings to Mobilith SHC 100 synthetic grease.

The hammer crusher had suffered from frequent overheating, resulting in multiple bearing failures.

“After an onsite investigation, ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch its conventional lubricant to Mobilith SHC 100 synthetic grease,” ExxonMobil said. “The high-performance grease is formulated for extreme environments, and its advanced formulation resists viscosity thinning and oxidation at elevated temperatures.”

Following the switch to the new lubricant, the hammer crusher bearings are no longer overheating, which has reduced bearing failure and unscheduled downtime. “These benefits resulted in significant cost savings and enhanced safety by reducing employee-equipment interaction,” ExxonMobil concluded.
