ExxonMobil launches new gas turbine oilby Jyotsna Ravishankar on Jan 22, 2013
ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties has launched Mobil DTE™ 932 GT, a scientifically engineered gas turbine oil that can help oil and gas operators in Qatar to increase productivity by reducing unscheduled downtime and supporting their safety and environmental care objectives.
Engineered to enhance the performance of frame size combustion gas turbines with a common hydraulic and bearing oil reservoir, Mobil DTE 932 GT can help provide trouble-free service in gas turbines, which is crucial given the oil and gas industry’s reliance on turbine reliability.
Gas turbines play a fundamental role in liquefied natural gas (LNG) production, with many LNG plants using gas turbines to drive compressors that cool and liquefy gas for transportation. Keeping gas turbines running effectively is key to maximizing plant productivity and reducing unscheduled downtime.
One challenge to maintaining effective gas turbine performance is controlling the formation of varnish, a catchall term for deposits found in gas turbine operations.
“Varnish can have a significant detrimental impact on gas turbine operation, but Mobil DTE 932 GT offers the potential for greatly reduced varnish formation,” said Yan Côté, global business development advisor, ExxonMobil Lubricants & Specialties.
“Other performance benefits of Mobil DTE 932 GT include exceptional high temperature performance, outstanding deposit control, excellent foam control and air release.”
Across a wide range of testing procedures, Mobil DTE 932 GT was shown to deliver critical performance benefits that can help enhance turbine performance and durability. As a result, Mobil DTE 932 GT meets or exceeds the standards for General Electric frame 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 turbines.
Alongside its high quality lubricants, ExxonMobil also offers its proprietary online oil analysis service, Signum Oil AnalysisSM. 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.
