ExxonMobil is launching Mobil ServSM Cylinder Condition Monitoring which will provide operators with fast and actionable engine insights.

The fuel giant said that this new industry service will drive a new era of onboard lubricant analysis delivering significant cost savings for operators by helping them to better manage and improve engine protection and optimise performance.

“Vessel operators are under increased pressure to improve efficiency and drive cost reduction initiatives,” said Iain White, global field engineering manager, ExxonMobil.

“This next generation scrape down oil analysis service can identify issues such as over or under-lubrication, cold corrosion and the presence of cat fines. But crucially, this can happen quicker than ever before with our next generation service.”

Oil analysis

The scrape down oil analysis service leverages innovative XRF technology to provide operators with rapid, detailed insights for their engine, driving a range of benefits including a safe, fast, simple and accurate onboard sampling process.

By using Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring, operators will receive recommendations on feed rate and cylinder oil to optimise engine lubricant consumption.

In addition, this next generation monitoring service will have the ability to measure the sulphur content of the vessel’s fuel giving operators peace of mind that the fuel they have on board is compliant with the IMO’s 2020 global 0.5% sulphur cap.

Mobil ServSM Cylinder Condition Monitoring will be available from July 2018 and is the latest addition to ExxonMobil’s comprehensive global services portfolio, Mobil ServSM, launched last year.
