Mobil1March2015Mobil SHC Cibus™ hydraulic oils, which form part of the Mobil SHC Cibus series of advanced NSF H1-registered food-grade lubricants, have demonstrated potential energy efficiency benefits in commercial hydraulic equipment. Compared to a conventional oil, Mobil SHC Cibus hydraulic oil has the potential to help reduce the energy consumption of hydraulic equipment by up to 3.5%, helping to reduce power consumption and realise significant cost savings.

The energy efficiency potential and performance benefits of Mobil SHC Cibus hydraulic oil were highlighted following rigorous laboratory and commercial pump testing including the Eaton 25VMQ run under the controlled conditions of ASTM D7721 energy efficiency testing, the FZG Gear Scuffing test and various industry and in-field deposit evaluations. The tests demonstrated that the flagship oil offered energy efficiency potential, reduced equipment wear and the potential to extend oil drain intervals due to low deposit formation. This can help food and drink manufacturers to boost plant productivity, reduce maintenance and cut costs.

Mobil2March2015Rainer Lange, Mobil SHC Brand Advisor for Europe, Africa and Middle East region, ExxonMobil, says: “We are pleased to announce that Mobil SHC Cibus hydraulic oil can help to significantly reduce the energy consumption of food and drink processing equipment. Our unrivaled application expertise can help food and beverage manufacturers achieve the ISO 50001 Energy Management certification and inform them about the benefits of operational efficiency beyond energy savings.”

The hydraulic oil is part of the Mobil SHC Cibus series that is ideal for the full spectrum of hydraulic, gear, bearing, circulation system and heat transfer applications. The series has been designed to provide outstanding equipment protection, long oil life and problem-free operation. Mobil SHC Cibus can also offer food and beverage manufacturers the potential of 3.6% energy efficiency benefits in gearbox applications.

Designed to enhance food safety initiatives, the Mobil SHC Cibus series complies with Title 21 CFR 178.3570 of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lubricants with the potential for incidental food contact and are manufactured in facilities that meet the hygiene requirements of ISO 21469:2006.The product range is formulated to nut-, wheat- and gluten free specification and suitable under Kosher Parve and Halal dietary requirements.
