ExxonMobil last Tuesday announced that Mobil JetTM Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability turbine engine oil, has been approved by Pratt & Whitney for use in its PurePower® Geared TurbofanTM 1500G engines.
As a result, all Mobil Jet-branded turbine oils, including Mobil Jet Oil 387, Mobil JetTM Oil II and Mobil JetTM Oil 254, are now fully approved for use in a variety of Pratt & Whitney 1500G engines, including the 1519G, 1521G, 1521G-3, 1524G, 1524G-3, 1525G and 1525G-3.
Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower 1500G engines are the exclusive power plant for the Bombardier C-Series, a family of narrow-body, twin-engine, medium-range jet airliners.
The approval process for Mobil Jet Oil 387 consisted of performance evaluations in various PurePower PW1500G engine models. Test results showed that Mobil Jet Oil 387 helps provide outstanding engine protection for all Pratt & Whitney 1500G engine models.
“Created entirely by ExxonMobil lubricant formulators, Mobil Jet Oil 387 has custom-made esters and unique additives that help deliver a combination of benefits that have never before been achieved with an HTS/HPC turbine oil, including exceptional elastomer compatibility, outstanding thermal and oxidation stability and advanced deposit control,” said Vipin Rana, global aviation lubricants sales manager at ExxonMobil. “As the performance of Mobil Jet Oil 387 continues to be recognized by leading manufacturers, like Pratt & Whitney, we anticipate that more airlines will choose it to support their fleets’ current and future engine maintenance needs.”
Introduced globally in 2012, ExxonMobil says Mobil Jet Oil 387 is the most advanced turbine engine oil that it has produced in its more than 120-year history of serving the aviation industry. Mobil Jet Oil 387 is approved for use by engine manufacturers in a wide range of models and components. It also meets a range of demanding industry specifications, including SAE AS5780 High Performance Capability and U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-23699-HTS.
