Mobil Pegasus™ 1005 gas engine oil success story
Annual savings of$5,420
A non-Mobil™ gas engine oil was used to lubricate two GE Jenbacher 1.06 MW gas engines. This was causing unexpected downtime and affecting productivity as the engine oil needed to be changed every 2,000 hours.
The Mobil Lube Engineer recommended Mobil Pegasus™ 1005 – a high performance gas engine oil that delivers exceptional cleanliness and long-lasting protection for natural gas engine components. The performance of the natural gas engine and the lubricant were also closely monitored through disciplined implementation of the Mobil Serv℠ Lubricant Analysis program.
Since the implementation of Mobil Pegasus™ 1005 gas engine oil, the oil drain interval of the two GE Jenbacher gas engines has been extended beyond 4,000 hours, representing a 100 per cent increase. In addition to improved productivity, the plant achieved an estimated annual cost savings of US $5,420.
*This success story is based on the experience of a single customer. Actual results can vary depending upon the type of equipment used and its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
