Mobil Jet Oil 254

Mobil Jet Oil 254 is a third-generation synthetic lubricant made from a specially prepared hindered-ester base stock fortified with a special chemical additive package.

 

Description

Mobil Jet Oil 254 is a third-generation synthetic lubricant made from a specially prepared hindered-ester base stock fortified with a special chemical additive package. The result is a product having superior thermal and oxidation stability that resists deterioration and deposit formation, while maintaining the physical characteristics required by builder and military specifications. Because of this, the physical properties of Mobil Jet Oil 254 are similar to currently available, earlier-generation turbine lubricants.
The closely controlled viscosity at -40° C (-40° F), along with a pour point below -54° C (-65° F), ensure good low-temperature fluidity to permit starting and lubrication at -40° C. In extensive laboratory testing and in-flight experience, Mobil Jet Oil 254 exhibits excellent bulk oil stability at temperatures up to 232° C (450° F) for extended periods. The evaporation rate at these temperatures is low enough to prevent excessive loss of volume. The load-carrying ability of Mobil Jet Oil 254 comes from its synthetic base stock viscosity and, therefore, is not subject to loss from viscosity index additive shear. The lubricant has excellent resistance to
foaming.
When compared to a typical Type II lubricant, Mobil Jet Oil 254 reduces bulk oil oxidation by up to 50 percent and shows deposit control capability 50 Fahrenheit degrees higher. These properties have been confirmed in various laboratory tests, including the Corrosion-Oxidation Stability Test, Alcor Deposit Test, Erdco HighTemperature Bearing Test, and the Thin Film Oxidation Test. Mobil Jet Oil 254 is compatible with other synthetic gas turbine lubricants meeting MIL-L-23699E. Mixing with other products, however, could result in some loss of the superior performance features of Mobil Jet Oil 254. The lubricant is completely compatible with all metals used in gas turbine construction, as well as with F Rubber (Viton® A), H Rubber (Buna N), and silicone seal materials. Do not spill the lubricant on insulation, plastic, rubber, or paint.
Mobil Jet Oil 254 may be stored for 15 years in sealed quart metal cans and up to two years in drums. If held longer, check it for suitability before placing it in service. Your Mobil representative will provide the necessary information for conducting inspection tests.

Application/Uses
