The Mobil DTE™ Oil Named Series of lubricants are premium performance circulating lubricants designed for applications including steam and hydro turbine sets and other systems where long lubricant service life is required. Mobil DTE Oil Named Series lubricants are formulated from highly refined base stocks and an additive system which provide an extremely high level of chemical and thermal stability, rapid and complete separation from water and a high resistance to emulsification. They provide excellent protection against rust and corrosion, including resistance to salt water, and good antiwear properties. They have a high viscosity index which ensures minimum variation of film thickness with temperature and minimum power loss during the warm up period. These grades have excellent air release properties which allow entrained air to separate, thus avoiding pump cavitation and erratic operation.
Mobil DTE Oil Named are the lubricants of choice for many users because of their reputation for long life, excellent equipment protection and outstanding versatility in the wide variety of industrial applications. DTE Oil Named lubricants are used widely in steam turbines and hydroturbines with splash, bath and ring-oiling arrangements, and all other continuous circulation methods involving pumps, valves and ancillary equipment. This product series is recommended for continous service in the lubrication of plain and rolling bearings and parallel shaft gearing. They have also been used successfully in rotary air compressor applications and reciprocating natural gas compressors as well as vacuum pumps. Their reputation is based on many decades of successful service and satisfied users.
Features and Benefits
The Mobil DTE family of products is well known and highly regarded worldwide based on their outstanding performance and the R & D expertise and the global technical support which stand behind the brand. The highly versatile performance of Mobil DTE Oil Named oils has made them the oil of choice for a multitude of industrial equipment applications around the world.
Mobil DTE Named oils enjoy an excellent reputation in the lubrication of the circulation systems of steam turbines and hydro turbines, including geared turbines, plus a wide variety of ancillary equipment. As designs change and increase in severity, it is the challenge of our formulation scientists to understand the effect of these changes on the lubricant and to formulate these products for the broad versatility they are recognised for.
For the Mobil DTE Oil Named Series of lubricants, this process has resulted in the use of special base stocks for outstanding oxidation stability, plus a unique additive combination to ensure the excellent, wide-ranging performance of these oils.
