ExxonMobil has launched Mobil SHC™ 800 Ultra Series of high performance turbine oils. These advanced lubricants have been specifically designed to improve the productivity of steam, gas, combined cycle turbines and turbo compressor applications, operating under the most severe conditions.
Formulated to offer exceptional keep-clean performance and prevent the build-up of lacquer, varnish and deposits particularly on valves and bearings, Mobil SHC 800 Series lubricants can help to prevent operational issues, unscheduled maintenance and shut down. The oils are also designed to provide outstanding protection against thermal and oxidative degradation, helping to ensure low maintenance and long oil life.
The turbine oils can also help to:
- Increase operator flexibility and reduce inventory.
- Minimise corrosion and the formation of an undesirable stable emulsion.
“Increasing demands on turbines and compressors, including high temperatures and cyclic operations, put more stress on today’s lubricants,” said Derek Selby, ExxonMobil’s EAME Technical Advisor. “This can result in varnish and lacquer formation, which is a major problem for the industry. Mobil SHC 800 Ultra Series is specifically designed to tackle this challenge, helping ensure trouble-free operation, reduced maintenance and maximised production.”
“We are delighted to launch this major new product range, which was developed side by-side with customers and equipment builders,” said Inge Vervoort, EAME Commercial Marketing Offer Advisor at ExxonMobil. “This has enabled us to formulate a premium lubricant that delivers standout performance benefits that exceed even the most demanding equipment needs.”
