If you missed ExxonMobil Field Engineer Adam McMurtrey’s webinar on the MobilServ Approach to Prescriptive Maintenance, “A Human Led Approach to Unlocking the Power of Industry 4.0” you can catch it here!
The emergence of Industry 4.0 and “connected plants” offer the promise of an exciting future – not through a plug-and-play model but rather a human led approach.
Ever wondered which data amongst a dataset is key to improving the reliability of a gearbox, or how that effort impacts your overarching program? In Adam's webinar, learn how companies can solve personnel concerns with technology and how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), big data, and artificial intelligence radically improve operational performance when technology is first used to connect humans. Just gathering more data won’t unleash the potential Industry 4.0 has to improve companies and operations; Mobil’s approach reveals that insights into human behavior and contribution are necessary to effectively leverage data to drive improvements in maintenance and operations. Now companies are able to build best-in-class operations because human-based insights will reveal to the company the best use of resources (time, money, people, etc.) to lower costs & improve production while securing future margins.
We invite you to learn from our experiences and find out how you can use it to transform your company into the future at mobil.com/plantstudy through a thorough assessment of your plant's current lubricants, lubrication requirements and practices complete with recommendations for improvement and estimates of the value of suggested changes.

On September 11th ExxonMobil partnered with three-time NASCAR Cup Champion Tony Stewart and Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) at the IMTS show in Chicago to host an exclusive event outlining challenges and best practices for running a machine shop in a high-performance environment.
Here is the recording of that event so you can hear what these expert panelists had to say!
A host of emerging challenges is making it harder for natural gas engine operators to maximize the performance of their equipment. Fluctuating operating hours, inconsistent fuel sources and quality, evolving exhaust gas limits, and variable stop-start engine ratios are all putting increasing pressure on equipment and the lubricants that protect them.
In the battle to overcome these challenges and maximize equipment performance, oil analysis plays a critical role. Regular oil analysis can help operators accurately assess oil condition and equipment health, enabling them to identify issues early and avoid unscheduled equipment downtime.
In a webinar moderated by Kelvin Ross, editor of Power Engineering International, experts Derek Selby and Frank Heber provide an in-depth look at key lubrication challenges for gas engines. They also explain how a robust oil analysis program can help operators maximize engine performance and minimize costs.
By watching this webinar, you will learn about:
Key lubrication challenges for natural gas engines
The role and benefits of used oil analysis in addressing these challenges
How to interpret and act on analysis results

With a €320 billion turnover, the plastics industry is one of the largest manufacturing contributors in Europe. And, it’s growing.
As a result of this continued growth, plastics manufacturers are facing greater challenges than ever before. From increasing customer demands – including shorter lead time and lower prices – to growing competition and an overwhelming variety of end product, plastics processers are looking at new ways to optimize all areas of their business.
To help plastics manufacturers learn to survive and thrive in this competitive market, ExxonMobil lubrication experts Rakesh Vyas and David Adams recently held a webinar hosted by Plastics News Europe to discuss how advanced lubricant solutions can help boost productivity and deliver substantial cost savings.
With more than 170 registered attendees, this webinar provided an overview of the importance of industrial lubricants in helping equipment run efficiently, as well as the potential benefits the right lubrication can provide, including:
In addition, the webinar discussed how balanced formulation plays a key role in lubricant performance, as well as how the right lubricant supplier can help you further achieve your operational goals with technical support and field engineering services designed to deliver tailored lubricant solutions.
To learn more about how using advanced lubricants can help you meet the increasing demands of plastics manufacturing today, check out the full webinar session below.

Gases produced from waste such as landfill and biomass are becoming increasingly important contributors to the energy sector. With these new gases, however, come new challenges for engine operators.
Biogas is a catch-all term for many different gases - those from landfill and agricultural waste, for example - and each gas presents its own challenges. Contaminants such as siloxanes and hydrogen sulphides can be present in high levels, and have the potential to accelerate wear in liners and piston rings, causing engine failure. This means close attention must be paid to maintenance operations, including the lubrication of engines.
The correct lubricant can help to significantly extend oil drain intervals, boosting reliability and power output. This is achieved by improving engine durability through a lubricant's ability to provide outstanding anti-wear and anti-scuff performance, and exceptional carbon and varnish deposit control - mitigating some of the challenges of operating engines on biomass and landfill gases.

The proper lubrication of electric motor bearings is essential to reducing downtime, enabling optimum equipment performance, and enhancing overall productivity. And, a key component of proper electric motor bearing lubrication is implementing a best practices approach to grease selection and application.
As different greases have varying properties designed to address specific operating conditions, it’s also necessary to understand the conditions under which your bearing will operate in order to select the right grease. For example, you may need to consider whether your electric motor is operating under specific load constraints, extreme temperatures or efficiency requirements.
After you’ve established the operating conditions under which your electric motor bearing is operating, as well as the desired grease properties, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind with the application of the lubricant itself, including:
