Improved Process Efficiency with Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis


The Situation

A Texas-based alumina production company obtains more than 150 oil analysis samples per month as part of its comprehensive preventative maintenance program. The process of collecting and labeling the samples typically requires 24 labor hours a month, which a significant portion of that time is dedicated to printing and filling out sample labels. In an effort to streamline the sampling and labeling process, the company approached ExxonMobil engineers for an alternative maintenance solution. 

The Recommendation

ExxonMobil engineers recommended that the company use Mobil Serv™ Lubricant Analysis. The Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis program eliminates the time-consuming sample labeling process through the use of pre-labeled sample bottles with QR codes and a unique number identifier. These QR codes and number identifies allow the sample bottle to be quickly paired with a piece of equipment in the Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis System with no additional sample labeling. 

QR CODES Explained

QR codes, or Quick-Response codes, are easily readable barcodes that when scanned with a QR decoder (usually available on smartphones) can translate the code into a URL, a telephone number, a bit of text, or other data.

The Benefit

Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis has helped this Texas-based alumina production plant improve sample process efficiency while reducing monthly labor associated with oil analysis to eight hours per month. This has helped deliver a total cost savings of $9,600.

The Impact

According to company reports, after implementing Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis, the company experienced improved process efficiency by reducing their monthly sample collection time by 66 percent to eight labor hours per month. This is an average savings of 16 labor hours per month and 192 labor hours per year, which has helped generate a total cost savings of $9,600 in reduced labor.
