Mobil DTE™ 26 Ultra enabled 3X increase in oil drain interval and filter life for a rock breaker application.

Rock breaker application

Equipment: Rockbreaker
Plant: Bolbam Infrastructure
Address: Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh

Severe heavy duty operation conditions limited the hydraulic oil drain interval and filter life to 700 hrs in a rock breaker application resulting in lower productivity and high maintenance cost.

Mobil Field Engineering Services (FES) team conducted application assessment study and recommended to use Mobil DTE™ 26 Ultra (ISO VG 68) hydraulic oil to prevent rapid oil oxidation and deposit formation and also to monitor the oil and equipment performance regularly with Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis (MSLA).

  • Extended oil drain interval by 3x
  • Reduced oil consumption – 800 litres
  • Revenue Improvement – INR 362,000

The recommendations resulted in:

  1. ODI and filter life increase from 700 hrs to 2100 hrs.
  2. Oil consumption reduction by 800 ltrs annually per equipment.
  3. Man hours for maintenance reduction by 57 hours.
