Providing companies in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage processing and packaging industries with machinery lubricants that are uniquely designed to help enhance equipment efficiency and maximize productivity, ExxonMobil has introduced its new, synthetic NSF H1 registered Mobil SHC Cibus Series.

Ideal for the full spectrum of hydraulic, gear and air compressor applications, Mobil SHC Cibus lubricants are designed to provide food and beverage processors with high-performance lubrication and long service life, even under extreme operating conditions such as freezers and cookers. In addition to being manufactured in equipment where cross-contamination is minimized, Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants are formulated to nut-, wheat- and gluten free and suitable under Kosher and Halal dietary law.

“Today, food and beverage processors are constantly challenged to find ways to boost productivity while also maintaining strict food safety standards," said Peter Bird, food industry advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Petroleum Specialties Company. "We engineered the new Mobil SHC Cibus Series by leveraging our vast application-expertise to formulate a premium lubricant solution that can help provide food and beverage manufacturers with a competitive advantage.”

Engineered with advanced synthetic base stocks, Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils, exhibit outstanding load-carrying properties and low internal friction helping to reduce energy costs. In proprietary worm gear bench tests,  Mobil SHC Cibus demonstrated up to 3 percent overall efficiency improvement compared to mineral gear oils.

Mobil SHC Cibus Series oils' high load carrying capability and excellent wear protection can help prolong equipment reliability and performance.  Additionally, Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants, with their long term-oxidation stability, anti-rust and anti-corrosion features, can reduce the potential of unscheduled downtime associated with component replacement.

Along with delivering exceptional performance and long lasting equipment protection, the new Mobil SHC Cibus Series can help maintenance professionals generate significant cost savings.

For instance, proprietary ExxonMobil hydraulic testing demonstrates that Mobil SHC Cibus 46 can last up to two times longer than conventional, non-NSF H1 registered mineral based hydraulic oils, while maintaining a high degree of system cleanliness. Long life and clean systems can reduce the costs and risks associated with frequent oil changes and unplanned component failures. 

Furthermore, Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants can be used in applications below and above the processing line, helping to reduce inventory costs and the risk of contamination from using non-NSF H1 registered lubricants.

Available in viscosities ranging from ISO VG 32 to 68 and 150 to 460, the new Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants are sold through ExxonMobil's worldwide network of distributors. Mobil SHC Cibus Series lubricants deliver both high performance and food-quality benefits to help food processing companies keep their productivity soaring.
