ExxonMobil launch new oil-analysis programme
Company replaces its Signum service with Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis programme
ExxonMobil have launched Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis, a new mobile-enabled used-oil analysis service to help quarry and mine operators identify potential equipment issues before they happen and avoid unscheduled equipment maintenance.
The service, which replaces ExxonMobil’s Signum, can help plant engineers maintain a healthy and reliable operation. When monitored regularly, the analysis programme helps to enhance equipment reliability, reduce maintenance costs and unscheduled downtime, improve equipment durability, and reduce lubricant consumption.
It can also help to extend oil drain intervals, which, in turn, improves safety by reducing intervention with machinery.
Designed to streamline the entire used oil analysis process from initial sample gathering to final reporting, the service leverages scan-and-go technology with QR codes so customers can easily deliver used-oil samples to ExxonMobil’s oil-analysis laboratory.
Customers can then access results and customized equipment recommendations on mobile or tablet devices using a cloud-based app, and share it with any other parties, as needed.
The new service package can also eliminate labels and paperwork, and facilitate real-time communication of sampling scheduling and results. Customers will, however, still be able to manage and assess their reporting manually, if preferred.
‘The Mobil Serv Lubricant Analysis programme can be accessed via any mobile device and our new report layout and expanded trend analysis make it simpler for users to understand the diagnosis and act on our recommendations,’ said Ayman Ali, ExxonMobil’s industrial marketing adviser for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
‘The launch of this new service builds on ExxonMobil’s long tradition of providing leading used-oil analysis services to companies around the world, enabling them to extend oil drain intervals and, in turn, benefit from reduced maintenance costs and improved efficiency.’
The used-oil analysis programme offers a full 360° analysis, allowing operators to track productivity trends and spot any anomalies. With 25 testing options available, users can pick and choose the right test package for their operation.
The new service is available now and customers previously registered to Signum will have been automatically migrated to the new programme, along with their analysis history.
