Next generation lubricant oil analysis tool
ExxonMobil has launched what it calls a next generation oil analysis tool designed help generate cost savings and offer operators peace of mind.
The Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis is a mobile-enabled platform and uses scan-and-go technology option to eliminate labels and paperwork.
“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.”
As part of the Mobil ServSM offering, Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis can provide data and reporting on key equipment such as the stern tube, main engine bearings, generators and other auxiliary equipment.
Mr White said this can enable a ship owner to 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.
When it comes to eliminating labels and paperwork, operators simply need 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.
This new service replaces ExxonMobil’s used oil analysis program, SignumSM.
