ExxonMobil opened its new Asia Pacific Signum Laboratory at the ExxonMobil Shanghai Technology Center. The new laboratory in China is the company's first in the Asia Pacific region and provides customers direct access to oil analysis to help improve their equipment performance.
Signum, ExxonMobil's oil analysis program, leverages more than 40 years of oil analysis expertise and is designed specifically to help evaluate the condition of in-service lubricants. It is a quick and non-invasive way to gauge the health of a machine and help achieve optimum performance.
"The new Signum Laboratory at the Shanghai Technology Center extends ExxonMobil's technology footprint in China and the Asia Pacific region and enables us to better support customers in the region," said Darrin Talley, vice president, marketing, ExxonMobil Fuels, Lubricants & Specialties Marketing Company. "With the Mobil branded lubricant business growing steadily in China and the Asia Pacific region, more and more customers are requesting superior oil analysis to improve productivity and reduce downtime. The new Signum Laboratory will help meet customers' requests quickly through technical application expertise."
The Signum Laboratory at the Shanghai Technology Center is designed to exacting laboratory standards and complies with stringent quality requirements. ExxonMobil has full control of the laboratory operations, quality assurance, data integrity, equipment reliability, and safety standards. The Signum Laboratory provides access to the Company's centralized database of oil analysis results and is capable of handling several hundred analyses a day. The lab then generates a comprehensive analysis report for most client applications in 24 to 48 hours after sample reception.
