ExxonMobil has announced that its Mobil SHC Gear Series of synthetic industrial gear oils have been approved for use in General Electric (GE) off-highway vehicle motorized wheel gearbox applications requiring GE’s new gear oil specification, D50E35. Effective January 1, the new GE D50E35 specification replaces the D50E27 specification for GE drives used in haul trucks. The new spec establishes micro-pitting protection requirements in addition to scuffing wear resistance and other improvements.
