Mobil Pegasus™ 805 helps extend compressor life

Mobil Pegasus 805 extends compressor life

Ariel JGD-6 Compressor

Devon Gas Services, LP Bridgeport, Texas, United States

Situation

Expected compressor life between in-frame overhauls of Devon Gas Services’ Ariel JGD-6 compressor (Unit 651) is 48,000 hours. The company was interested in safely extending the compressor life beyond this interval and improving productivity.

Recommendation

Mobil engineers, working closely with Devon Gas Services’ maintenance team, recommended use of Mobil Pegasus™ 805 gas engine oil in its Ariel compressor.

Result

Use of Mobil Pegasus 805 oil helped extend compressor life between in-frame overhauls to 67,000 hours or more than 7.5 years, increasing time between in-frame overhauls by nearly 40 per cent. Devon Gas Services achieved associated cost savings of US $41,667 in deferred compressor overhaul costs.

The product performance of Mobil Pegasus 805, alongside the application expertise provided by local Mobil engineering support, once again helped to improve customer productivity.
