ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants has launched its new product Mobil DTE 732 M, a specially formulated high-performance turbine oil, as part of its lubricants product line. The new product, expected to help power operators increase reliability and output of their gas and steam turbines, will be showcased at Power Gen Europe.

In extensive field trials and laboratory testing, Mobil DTE 732 M demonstrated the ability to enhance system cleanliness, deliver exceptional thermal stability and minimize varnish formation, all of which are critical for turbine durability and performance. It is recommended for use in Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ (MHI) range of non-geared single shaft gas and steam turbines, and multi shaft gas turbines.
The oil is approved against MHI’s stringent MS04-MA-CL005 specification, which means it meets MHI’s protection requirements for long life and high temperature turbine applications.
The lubricants product line includes the Mobil Pegasus range of natural gas engine oils, and ExxonMobil will showcase its Mobil SHC Pegasus oil at Power Gen Europe. Three Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) including GE Energy-Waukesha Engines Division, OAO ‘Kamaz’ and Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. have approved and recommended this advanced gas engine oil. With 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, this lubricant is said to promote engine cleanliness and increase engine life, apart from offering reliability and greater component protection.
Lubricants with the potential to increase equipment life and extend oil drain intervals “help reduce unscheduled downtime and contribute to improving the safety and productivity of power operations,” said Jarmo Vihersalo, Europe, Africa and Middle East Industrial marketing advisor for energy, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants.
