Get enhanced performance with every drop of Mobil Pegasus

Small things can make a big difference to your gas engine. With its enhanced performance, Mobil Pegasus™ oil increases oil drain intervals, helps protect your gas engine, improves engine output and reduces downtime.

EnergyDecentral November 2018

Sharing knowledge and innovation at key industry events

The 2017 Power-Gen Europe exhibition provided an excellent forum for decision makers and ExxonMobil was pleased to lead the debate on gas engine operation and lubrication. Watch the highlights in this video, including the launch of ExxonMobil’s Mobil Pegasus™ 1100 Series and a technical presentation in partnership with OEM GE Jenbacher.

ExxonMobil was also in attendance at the UK AD & Biogas exhibition this year. At the show, they met with media and hosted two technical presentations about the role of lubrication in optimising equipment for aggressive biogas applications.

Our latest customer success stories

Providing engine protection from biogas

Greenlake Systems BV operates a large biogas plant in The Netherlands and was looking for a lubricant that would help enhance productivity. Equipment performance and reliability is key to their success, particularly with engines running on aggressive gases.
Enhancing engine performance

With 121 operating landfill gas-to-energy sites across the UK, Infinis is one of the UK’s leading landfill gas-to-energy generators. Working hand-in-hand with ExxonMobil, Infinis improved engine performance and realised cost efficiencies across its fleet.

Top tips

A scheduled maintenance programme is essential to support the smooth running of your gas engines.

Replacing consumables, such as oil and filters, typically occurs every 1,000 – 2,000 operational hours, depending on engine type and fuel quality. Using a high performance synthetic lubricant, such as Mobil SHC Pegasus™, can help extend oil and filter life, reducing maintenance downtime and used oil disposal costs.

A scheduled maintenance programme is essential to support the smooth running of your gas engines.

A common cause of unscheduled maintenance is fuel gas quality – natural gas is cleaner and less challenging than landfill or biogas. It is therefore important to ensure that maintenance periods are more frequent if poor quality gas is being consumed.

A scheduled maintenance programme is essential to support the smooth running of your gas engines.

By working in partnership with your maintenance service and lubricant suppliers, you can help to ensure you have the best possible safeguards in place to support the smooth running of your gas engines.

Employing the expertise of ExxonMobil’s Field Engineering Services (FES) team can help you build your business. The company’s field engineers are sector specialists with an in-depth knowledge of how ExxonMobil’s lubricants can help cut costs and boost equipment reliability.

Their expertise, experience and knowledge is a global resource ready to be tailored to your specific needs based on your individual requirements.

ExxonMobil’s Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis (MSLA) service is a fast, intuitive used oil analysis tool designed to save time and money by helping safeguard equipment efficiency. Its findings can help:

  • Increase productivity
  • Decrease unscheduled downtime
  • Improve equipment reliability
  • Reduce lubricant consumption

MSLA is backed up by ExxonMobil’s extensive lubricant knowledge, which enables the company to produce precise analysis and deliver detailed, actionable recommendations.

When lubricants aren’t handled and stored properly, they can deteriorate or become contaminated. This can lead to inadequate lubrication or become waste. In contrast, by taking a best practice approach you can optimise engine performance.

Good storage and handling practice includes correct unloading procedures and use of a single, designated storage area. Storage should be away from heaters, cold areas, moisture, dust and areas of varying temperature cycles.

While lubricants may represent a small percentage of operating costs, simply selecting the right oil can have a significant impact on long-term maintenance costs. Operators should take into account OEM recommendations, as well as the gas type being used. ExxonMobil works with major OEMs to test and develop its lubricants, and is continuously developing new products that are tailored to specific gases. For example, Mobil Pegasus™ 605 Ultra is specifically designed to mitigate the contaminants commonly found in gases produced from waste.
Advances in lubricant technology have resulted in breakthroughs in extending engine life, optimising oil drain intervals and improving the overall efficiency of equipment. By switching from conventional mineral oils to high performance lubricants, gas engine operators can help decrease the need for unscheduled maintenance, resulting in safer operations and cost savings.
As part of routine maintenance, the “health” of the lubricant and the equipment itself should be regularly checked. By trending oil analysis data it is possible to proactively address undesirable conditions before they result in equipment downtime. ExxonMobil’s new Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis program is a quick and easy to use system that sends maintenance professionals expert oil analysis assessments to identify potential issues, list possible causes and recommend corrective actions.
