Mobil Pegasus™ 610 and Mobil Engineering Services help Charoen Pokphand Food PCL. Save over US$ 52,000 annually
The Charoen Pokphand Food PCL (Swine Farm Group) operates over 30 pig manure biogas farms in Thailand. The non-Mobil™ SAE 40 engine oil used on the Caterpillar™ G3406 engines was causing unscheduled downtime, resulting in an inefficient oil change interval of about 500 hours.
The ExxonMobil Lube Engineer analyzed the situation and recommended Mobil Pegasus™ 610 – a natural gas engine oil specifically developed for gas engines operating on biogas. Mobil ServSM Lubricant Analysis was performed at regular intervals to monitor oil performance and engine condition.
Mobil Pegasus™ 610 natural gas engine oil was deployed on a six-month trial at two biogas farms – Kasetsantirat and Raisam. The report from Mobil ServSM indicated that the oil was still in good condition even after six months of operation. This reduced the costs of spare parts and labor while minimizing unscheduled downtime, resulting in annual savings of US $52,780.
