Exxon launches used oil analysis service to improve equipment reliability and cut downtime

14 Nov 2017 16:55 GMT

Mobile-enabled service monitors oil condition and assesses equipment health.



ExxonMobil has launched Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis, its new mobile-enabled used oil analysis service that monitors oil condition and assesses equipment health.

ExxonMobil says the new service can help prolong engine and equipment life by assessing oil condition and helping operators identify issues before they happen.

As part of the Mobil Serv offering, Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis provides data and reporting on key equipment such as the stern tube, main engine bearings, generators and other auxiliary equipment.

ExxonMobil points out that it can help a ship owner avoid opening up equipment for unnecessary inspection when the oil analysis report indicates no serious alerts within the operating period. This delivers additional cost avoidance on top of the prolonged engine and equipment life that can be achieved.

To eliminate labels and paperwork, the new service features scan-and-go technology. Operators simply scan the QR code (barcode) of the sample point and bottle, enter the sample information and submit the sample. Operators will then receive an informative report on the condition of equipment and lubricants with tailored advice to help inform maintenance schedules and understand data trends.

The service offers mobile access enabling operators to view data and results wherever needed.

"Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis can help enhance equipment reliability and reduce unscheduled downtime, helping to generate cost savings, which are crucial in today's economic climate," said Iain White, Global Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Marine. "With these benefits, this new service will provide a step change in marine oil analysis and help customers optimise performance and drive efficiencies."

This new service replaces ExxonMobil's used oil analysis program, Signum.
