Why Mobil SHC 600 Series is the Only Product You Need

Today’s energy costs are rising fast and budgets are being stretched to the limit. Management is under pressure to identify ways of increasing productivity and reducing operating costs throughout the manufacturing plant. Employees are being encouraged to implement energy saving and continuous improvement initiatives, including the reduction of storage and inventory costs.

Do you recognise some of these issues in your company? The Mobil SHC 600 series of scientifically engineered industrial gear oils is designed to help you reach these targets.

Mobil SHC 600 series – Helping to Save Energy Costs

The Mobil SHC 600 series of high-performance industrial oils are formulated with synthetic-base stocks in combination with a highly efficient, proprietary additive system. These synthetic-base oils offer lower traction (or internal friction) properties that translate into higher efficiency and lower operating temperatures.

Equipment running with Mobil SHC 600 at reduced temperatures can mean lower energy consumption or could potentially be up-rated to offer a higher power throughput. Mobil SHC 600 technology helps your critical equipment, whether it is gear boxes, compressors or bearings to run cooler, longer and better.

Gearbox running on Mobil SHC demonstrates a significant energy saving of 2% with a resulting temperature drop of 7°C. Reduced running temperature at the shaft area may also facilitate longer seal life without leakage.

Mobil SHC 600 – Helping to Improve Productivity

Mobil SHC 600 can also help improve productivity. Take longer oil life as an example. Due to its outstanding thermal and oxidative stability, Mobil SHC 600 can last up to six times longer than mineral oil based products. That means fewer oil changes, lower equipment failure and increased operational efficiencies.

Mobil SHC 600 also provides outstanding protection against wear and fatigue even at extremes of temperature. Due to its inherently high VI, Mobil SHC 600 helps extend equipment and component life, reducing maintenance budgets and costly downtime periods.

Mobil SHC 600 – Reducing Inventory and Administration Costs

The Mobil SHC 600 series represents the ultimate in multi-purpose industrial lubrication for modern flexible manufacturing processes. Available in the full spectrum of viscosities ranging from ISO VG 32 to 1000, they can be used equally in moderate and severe duty operating conditions in three of the most important applications in the industrial plant, namely:

  • Gear box: Longer equipment life, higher power transmission, energy saving
  • Compressor: Longer service intervals, lower fire risk, cleaner components, lower energy consumption
  • Circulation/bearing: Lower energy consumption at start-up, lower maintenance costs, long component life, wider operating range

Because the same versatile technology is employed across all the Mobil SHC 600 series, inventory and warehousing costs can be reduced and product administration can be simplified. Furthermore there are no compatibility problems, reducing the risk of human error dispensing the wrong lubricant.

Mobil SHC 600 – the Proof

Equipment builders agree the performance of Mobil SHC 600 deserves recognition. Mobil has been developing synthetic lubricants for more than 40 years and our global expertise derives from close cooperation with these leading equipment builders. Mobil SHC 600 is recommended for use in more than 1,800 applications by more than 500 major equipment builders.


Mobil SHC 600 is the ultimate industrial lubricant designed to offer improved productivity and help reduce energy costs in a multitude of applications and operating conditions. What other product do you need?
