On the 6th of June, Exxon Mobil Egypt celebrated the launch of Mobil SHC 600 oil series and Mobil SHC Gear in the Four Seasons Nile Plaza hotel. The new products were introduced in Egypt by Exxon Mobil in order to meet the evolving requirements of the industrial sector.
Representatives of key players from all major industries in Egypt, ranging from cement and steel and petroleum to lighter industries such as food, were present at the event to witness the inauguration of Exxon Mobil’s new products. The company believes the new series of products holds unprecedented benefits able to service a myriad of industries, driving growth of the national economy.
The company was keen to highlight the advantages afforded by the new range of products. During on-stage presentations, Exxon Mobil representatives touted the Mobil SHC 600 Series as a provider of superior functionality in intense service applications at high and low temperatures. Furthermore, the SHC series, it was claimed, offers higher low-temperature fluidity, better thermal and oxidative stability, enhanced bearing wear protection, and a multitude of other high performance benefits.
A major element in the company’s promotion of the Mobil SHC Gear lubricants was its clear exhibition of reduced energy consumption. According to Exxon Mobil, energy efficiency falls by up to 3.6% using the new products, which can be attributed to a higher viscosity index and low traction coefficient. The product series also has great seal compatibility and displays oil life that is up to 6 times longer than standard industrial oil.
The products were released in Europe four months ago, and have garnered a reputation for reducing production costs, increasing profitability, fostering safety and boosting energy efficiency. Exxon Mobil is centering the products on the concept of sustainability, which essentially consists of a balance between environmental protection, economic growth, social responsibility and energy efficiency. The company identified the latter as being particularly crucial in Egypt in the coming period owing to the alleged inevitability of oil price liberalization.
Mr. Mohamed El-Assar, ExxonMobil Egypt Industrial and Marine Sales Manager stated that the latest generation of Mobil SHC 600 Series will leverage this success and continue to be recognized by major equipment builders for delivering enhancements in key areas while maintaining its excellent and balanced performance overall.
According to Mr. Al-Assar, The key to industrial productivity is keeping critical bearings and gears turning, and choosing the correct lubricant can help maximize productivity and reduce machine downtime. He ensured that ExxonMobil constantly commits itself to supporting development in all industrial areas through its genuine efforts to satisfy customers’ needs and offer important innovations in lubricants manufacturing.
The general sentiment prevalent throughout the event was a sense of pride on the company’s part regarding its innovative approach to the world of industrial oil and lubricants. Exxon Mobil is looking to replicate the success it has achieved in Europe with the SHC series here in Egypt. If it succeeds, the echoes of said success will be felt across multiple industries.
