ExxonMobil aviation signs commercial agreement with Pratt & Whitney
Pratt & Whitney to begin multi-year testing of Mobil Jet™ Oil 387 in 2015 on PurePower® engines
- Mobil Jet Oil 387 to be tested in all Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine models
- Mobil Jet Oil 387 exceeds performance specifications for High-Performance Capability (HPC)* lubricant
Fairfax, Virginia – Oct. 23, 2014 – ExxonMobil has signed a commercial agreement to have its most advanced, HPC synthetic jet engine oil, Mobil Jet Oil 387, tested in all of Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower engine models. Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp (NYSE: UTX).
Scheduled to begin in early 2015, the multi-year testing program will span the complete family of PurePower engines, including the PW1100G-JM, PW1200G, PW1400G, PW1500G, PW800, PW1700G and PW1900G engine models.
Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower engines are widely featured on regional and single-aisle aircraft and have been recognized for their ability to reduce fuel burn, emissions, engine noise and overall operating costs. PurePower engines are the only engines used on the Bombardier CSeries, Mitsubishi Regional Jet, Gulfstream G500 and G600 business jets, Embraer's second generation E-Jets, and are offered as an option for the Airbus A320neo family and the Irkut MC-21 series aircraft.
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with ExxonMobil to begin testing Mobil Jet Oil 387 in our PurePower engine family,” said Greg Gernhardt, president, Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney. “With the success of our engines in the marketplace and their demonstrated performance, this agreement enables us to continue to find ways to exceed the performance goals we set for ourselves.”
“As the most advanced High Performance Capability oil that ExxonMobil has ever developed, Mobil Jet Oil 387 is also an ideal option for the Pratt & Whitney PurePower engine line,” said Frans Horjus, global aviation lubricant sales manager at ExxonMobil.“Today, as airlines seek new ways to maximize the performance of their fleet and reduce maintenance-related complexity, the outstanding turbine component protection that Mobil Jet Oil 387 offers for a wide range of engine technologies is generating significant interest,” Horjus added. “We look forward to demonstrating the superb performance of Mobil Jet Oil 387 in all PurePower engine models.”
Mobil Jet Oil 387 lubricant exceeds the performance specifications for HPC oils and is approved to the SAE AS5780 HPC specification. Documented in extensive testing, in the lab, on the ground and in-flight, Mobil Jet Oil 387 oil offers a wide range of benefits, including exceptional seal compatibility, outstanding deposit control, excellent oxidative stability and low-temperature fluidity, as compared to competitive HPC oils tested.
*About High-Performance Capability (HPC) Oils: The High-Performance Capability (HPC) classification represents the highest aviation industry standard for aviation turbine engine oils. To meet the HPC classification, oils must deliver exceptional overall performance, high levels of oxidation resistance and outstanding deposit control. Mobil Jet™ Oil 387 is certified as an HPC oil.
