The US-based ExxonMobil has launched the Mobil Pegasus 1100 Series, a next generation series of gas engine oils, aiming to keep up with the latest gas engine developments
Inspired by major OEMs to cope with severe engine conditions and significantly extend oil drain intervals, the Mobil Pegasus 1100 Series aims to help in extending oil drain intervals by up to 1.5 times compared with competitor mineral oils.
According to the company, the new natural gas engine series includes Mobil Pegasus 1105 and Mobil Pegasus 1107.
Mobil Pegasus 1107 has been designed for high severity natural gas engines and Mobil Pegasus 1105 focuses on meeting the specifications for all piston types.
ExxonMobil said that the lubricants are helpful for oxidation and thermal stability, thus helping to extend oil life. The anti-wear characteristics focus on reducing wear of engine components and scuffing of liners in highly loaded gas engines.
In addition, the oil controls varnish formation and carbon deposits, thereby maintaining engine cleanliness.
Speaking to the press, Inken Reuser, industrial marketing advisor at ExxonMobil, said, “Gas engine development is pushing the boundaries of engine design to try and increase gas engine power and reduce costs. In turn, this has put higher demands on lubrication.”
“Our Mobil Pegasus 1100 Series is designed to keep up with recent gas engine improvements. The next generation oils, inspired by major OEMs, can help extend oil drain intervals by up to 1.5 times while also maintaining engine protection and cleanliness,” Reuser added.
ExxonMobil is one of the largest publicly traded international oil and gas companies, which manufactured chemical and petroleum products.
