ExxonMobil is launching Mobil DTE™ 932 GT, a high-performance oil designed to help optimise the power output and reliability of gas turbines. Mobil DTE™ 932 GT is part of ExxonMobil's comprehensive range of lubricants and services specifically designed to help power operators improve the safety and productivity of their operations. A key feature of Mobil DTE™ 932 GT is that the oil is designed to limit varnish formation in gas turbine power systems.
During testing, Mobil DTE™ 932 GT was shown to deliver additional critical performance benefits such as high temperature performance, deposit control and excellent foam control and air release. Mobil DTE™ 932 GT meets or exceeds the standards set for General Electric (GE) frame 3,5,6,7 and 9 turbines. "Varnish can have a highly detrimental effect on gas turbine operations" said Kirill Chervyakov, Industrial Marketing Advisor, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants. He explained : "During gas turbine operation, varnish deposits can build up and stick to various interior surfaces and block openings and filters, which can reduce power output and reliability. Mobil DTE™ 932 GT offers the potential for greatly reduced varnish formation."
In addition to Mobil DTE™ 932 GT, Mobil SHC Pegasus™, the latest evolution in ExxonMobil's range of Mobil Pegasus™ natural gas engine oils, has been approved for use in GE Waukesha APG 1000 engines. GE cited good results for engine component wear and deposit control as well as fuel efficiency improvement. Mobil SHC Pegasus™ has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up to 1.5 percent and increase oil drain intervals from four to eight times that of conventional gas engine oils.
Alongside its high quality lubricants, ExxonMobil offers its proprietary online oil analysis service, Signum™ Oil Analysis. Signum enables operators to proactively monitor the condition of lubricants and address conditions which have the potential to lead to unscheduled downtime and increased costs.
