ExxonMobil is launching Mobil SHC Hydraulic EAL (Environmentally Acceptable Lubricant), a new readily biodegradable synthetic hydraulic oil that protects equipment can help improve energy efficiency of hydraulic equipment by up to 3.6 percent. The high-performance lubricant also has low toxicity, making it ideally suited for equipment used in sensitive environments or industries where EALs are required, such as offshore oil and gas applications.
Mobil SHC Hydraulic EAL delivers a balanced technical performance. It meets EU Ecolabel standards, and is non bio-accumulating. It also features properties that can increase equipment durability and extend oil life, meaning it can even protect machines operating in rugged environments where deposit build-up can be an issue.
“For years we have championed the capabilities of advanced synthetic lubricants. And the newest addition to our range of hydraulic oils, the Mobil SHC Hydraulic EAL oils, demonstrates why it is environmentally acceptable, offers superior protection and potential efficiency gains,” said Ayman Ali, Europe Africa Middle East, oil and gas marketing advisor for ExxonMobil. “In the oil and gas sector, rugged working conditions and strict environmental standards test hydraulic equipment to the limit. Our hydraulic oil meets all of these needs and protects equipment so it can deliver optimum performance.”
