Designed to optimize overhaul-to-overhaul periods
ExxonMobil and Fluitec introduced Mobil Solvancer, an oil-soluble cleaner designed for gas and steam turbine applications, compressors and hydraulic systems.
Fluitec has worked closely with ExxonMobil to bring Mobil Solvancer to the North America market. It can be added to in-service oils to quickly dissolve varnish and organic deposits. This helps to maintain system cleanliness and optimize reliability. It has one of the lowest treat rates in the industry, which can extend protection of equipment for more than one year, thus allowing operators to optimize overhaul-to-overhaul periods, the companies said.
Mobil Solvancer is engineered to provide a new way of easily reducing maintenance costs, increasing reliability and efficiency of an operation. Mobil Solvancer can assist in solving bearing temperature issues, sticking servos, filter blockages and minimize unexpected shutdowns. The combination of in-depth expertise and industry-leading technology from both of these leaders have worked together to develop a solution for this global challenge of varnish.
“When operating power generation and petrochemical equipment, maximizing productivity and enhancing reliability is critical to minimizing downtime and driving your bottom line,” said Sarah Parsons, North America Industrial Lubricants Brand Manager, ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants Company. “That’s why we partnered with Fluitec, the industry’s leading oil enhancement technology company, to develop Mobil Solvancer, a cost-effective cleaner that can help operators dissolve varnish and deposits that can cause long-term harm to systems while keeping their equipment running longer between overhauls. That means less downtime - both planned and unplanned.”
