SPRING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ExxonMobil today announced that Mobil JetTM Oil 387, a synthetic High Performance Capability turbine engine oil, has been approved by UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp., for use in all of its integrated drive generator (IDG) models.
Used to supply constant frequency AC electrical power to an aircraft, UTC Aerospace Systems’ IDG models can be found on many commercial and military aircraft applications.
As part of the approval process, Mobil Jet Oil 387’s performance was evaluated over a two-year period in IDG models used in various engine types. Results from the service evaluations revealed that Mobil Jet Oil 387 can provide outstanding component protection and oxidative stability, even under the stressful, high-temperature conditions common with IDGs.
“With this approval, airlines now have the convenience to use Mobil Jet Oil 387 in both their engines and the IDGs mounted on their accessory gearboxes,” said Vipin Rana, global aviation lubricants sales manager at ExxonMobil. “We’re confident that this added benefit, coupled with Mobil Jet Oil 387’s proven ability to help optimize engine performance and reduce risk and operational complexity, will result in more operators choosing Mobil Jet Oil 387 as their preferred lubricant of choice.”
Along with this recent approval from UTC Aerospace Systems, Mobil Jet Oil 387 has been approved for use by other 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.
Mobil Jet Oil 387 is produced at ExxonMobil’s state-of-the-art Port Allen aviation lubricants plant in Baton Rouge, LA. The 90,000 square foot facility, which recently commenced operations, is equipped with advanced production technologies designed to raise the bar on product quality and integrity, including in-line blending, high-speed quart line and flow-through racking systems.
