Lubrizol announces two new lubricant additives for stationary natural gas engine oils
Wickliffe, Ohio-based Lubrizol Corp. has introduced two new advanced 4-stroke low ash lubricant additive technologies for the growing stationary natural gas market: Lubrizol(R) SG9L01 and Lubrizol(R) SG9L20.
Stationary natural gas is one of the world’s fastest growing primary energy resources, accounting for 24% of global primary energy consumption. It market share is expected to grow 50% by 2040, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
Many market applications—including power generation, cogeneration, gas compression, biogas, landfill and more—have developed increasingly complex requirements for desired operation. Today’s stationary natural gas lubricants must optimize engine performance and provide:
- Extended service life for maximized uptime
- Robust protection against the most severe gasses
- Enhanced reduction in harmful deposits
- Assured emissions compliance
Lubrizol SG9L01 delivers enhanced varnish and deposit protection at extreme temperatures, reduced chamber deposits, improved copper corrosion protection and excellent wear protection with Lubrizol Hyper(R) ZDP Technology. Lubrizol SG9L20 offers these benefits and more, delivering breakthrough extended oil life for maximized uptime, improved maintenance interval planning and increased overhaul intervals.
“Lubrizol’s advanced technology resources brought these products to life,” says Paul Nai, Lubrizol global business manager, Large and Small Engines. “We’ve put novel chemistry to work in order to deliver higher performance beyond what has been seen before in stationary natural gas additive technology.”
