Mobil helps gold mine save 1.1 million USD

ExxonMobil helped a gold mine in the US save more than 1.1 million USD by switching to its Premium hydraulic oil Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46. The lubricant helped optimize the performance of two 250 ton capacity Terex excavators, helping to boost productivity, save fuel and enhance safety.

The mine operator experienced frequent failures due to cavitation damage and the effects caused by seasonal temperature swings, and therefore the company had to replace 52 main hydraulic pumps at US$54,000 each over a 40-month period.

ExxonMobil field engineers partnered with the mine in California and recommended transitioning to Mobil DTE 10 Excel™ 46 premium hydraulic oil. Formulated with a proprietary additive system, the oil’s high viscosity index and strong shear stability means it offers wide temperature range performance and can help optimize machinery operating in the toughest of conditions. It also helped eliminate oil-related hydraulic pump failure.

This transition improved productivity, while enhancing safety as 160 hours of human-machine interaction were eliminated as a result. Additionally, the lubricant helped reduce fuel consumption by 81,197 liters, lowering CO2 emissions by 216 ton. These improvements helped generate a company estimated annual cost saving of more than 1.1 million USD.

Kerem Kaynar, Industrial Marketing Advisor at ExxonMobil, said: “This is a great example of how a relatively small investment in a high performance lubricant can deliver significant productivity and financial gains. It’s also important to recognize the safety benefits – a top priority for all mine site operators. We’re delighted that our field engineers could help our customer optimize the performance of their machinery and improve their bottom line.”
