Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring

Instantly track the health of your fleet  

Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring is our next-generation onboard scrape down oil analysis service. It acts as a heart rate monitor for your fleet, providing ongoing engine data that can identify issues such as under- and over-lubrication, cold corrosion and the presence of cat fines. This can help you optimise cylinder oil feed rates and react quickly to problems as they arise, which can result in significant cost savings.

The game-changing Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring service offers:

  • State-of-the-art scan-and-go technology
    The service uses XRF technology for easy registration of samples and a cloud-based platform to deliver real-time reports on engine health, complete with actionable insights, to help you minimise operating costs and improve operational efficiency.
  • Quick and easy process
    With safe, fast, simple and accurate onboard sampling, minimal preparation and no wet chemistry, you can reduce the risk of human error and the handling of hazardous materials.
  • Instant results and continued savings
    We benchmark vessel performance by engine type and operating conditions thanks to our extensive database of more than 500,000 data samples. Within minutes of data submission, we deliver comprehensive reports and recommendations to help you plot your realised and potential savings. To date, Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring has helped our customers save over US $2.5 million in cylinder oil costs.*
  • Stress-free compliance
    The new service measures the sulphur content of marine fuel, which can help offer peace of mind and ensure compliance with IMO 2020 – the International Maritime Organization’s 0.50% sulphur cap on emissions.
  • Reduced waste and emissions
    Decreasing cylinder oil consumption can potentially reduce sludge disposal and emissions.
*Total reported cylinder oil cost savings of surveyed customers from 2012 to date (including under MobilGard™ Cylinder Condition Monitoring – the previous name for Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring). Actual savings realised may vary based on a number of factors, including equipment used, its maintenance, operating conditions and environment, and any prior lubricant used.
