ExxonMobil launches high-performance gas turbine oil

This week ExxonMobil (XOM:US) launched its Mobil DTE 932 GT, a high-specification lubricant designed to improve the reliability and power output of gas turbines.

Mobil DTE 932 GT is part of ExxonMobil’s wide range of lubricants and services that are designed to help power operators improve the safety and productivity of their operations.

The new lubricant is based on high-quality base oils balanced with a proprietary additive system to provide long oil life, and aims to limit the age-old problem of varnish formation in gas turbines.

In addition, across a wide range of testing procedures, Mobil DTE 932 GT has demonstrated additional performance benefits, including high temperature performance and deposit control, as well as foam control and air release.

According to ExxonMobil, Mobil DTE 932 GT meets or exceeds the standards set for GE Frame 3,5,6,7 and 9 turbines.

An essential part of the development process for new lubricants, which can take seven or more years, is the partnership between ExxonMobil’s equipment builder engineers and OEMs.

Speaking with representatives of Mobil Industrial Lubricants, one of the major benefits of this relationship is that it allows for close development and monitoring of value field trials of the newest equipment with the latest product offerings from ExxonMobil.
