ExxonMobil has announced that its Mobil Jet Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability turbine engine oil, has been approved by Pratt & Whitney for use in its PurePower Geared Turbofan 1900G engines, which includes the PW1918G, PW1919G, PW1920G, PW1921G, PW1922G and PW1923G variants, which power Embraer E190 and E195 E2 aircraft. As a result of increasing OEM approvals and continued airline interest in Mobil Jet Oil 387, the oil is now being used to protect more than 300 aircraft and has accumulated more than 3 million hours of on-wing performance.

 

Meanwhile, the shelf life of its aviation airframe greases, Mobilgrease 33 and Mobilgrease 28, has been extended to 10 years, an increase of four years following intensive laboratory testing. Mobilgrease 28 provides protection under heavy-load applications and resists deterioration when exposed to wide-ranging temperatures. Equally valued within the global aviation community, Mobilgrease 33 is an ester-free formulation that protects against the deteriorating effects of hydrolysis and provides airlines exceptional performance at extremely low temperatures and wet environments.
