Q8Oils, a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC),  and INNIO Jenbacher launched Jenbacher S Oil 40 gas engine oil for engines that do not operate on natural gas, including, but not limited to, biogas, sewage gas and  landfill gas. This lubricant is one of the first products developed by the long-term global partnership established by Q8Oils and INNIO in October 2020.  

Headquartered in Jenbach, Austria, INNIO is a leading solutions provider of gas engines, power equipment, a digital platform and related  services for power generation and gas compression at or near the point of use.

Based on the latest technology, Jenbacher S Oil 40 is a high-performing oil for stationary gas engines. It  provides very long drain intervals, reduces oil consumption and extends oil filter life. This medium-ash  product keeps engines running efficiently and reliably under the severest conditions.  

Jenbacher S Oil 40 gas engine oil is designed for the highly efficient Jenbacher Type 2, 3, 4 and 6 engines that  operate on non-natural gases. Even so, the Jenbacher S Oil 40 meets the demanding requirements of all  non-natural gas combustion engines. 

The key benefits of Jenbacher S Oil 40 include: 

∙ extends oil service intervals by an average 80%, resulting in a significant cost savings 

∙ outstanding oxidation stability and acid neutralisation. Exceptional performance in operations  using high H2S content gases 

∙ clean additive technology that protects the combustion chamber from excessive deposit  formation and provides excellent Total Base Number (TBN) retention

“Our goal is to provide  our customers with a highly reliable lubricant for efficient operations. Close cooperation between engineers  and scientists at INNIO Jenbacher and Q8Oils has created a high-quality lubricant which enables us to find  specific solutions for our customers,” said Mark Hensen, Q8Oils customer development team manager, Energy.

 “Jenbacher S Oil 40 is the result of years of  joint development and shared expertise, both in the laboratory and in field tests. In its development we have  focused on core customer requirements, such as cleaner technology and extended oil life, as the prime  drivers,” said Joris van der List, Q8Oils technology manager. 

“Based on a best-in-class co-engineering working relationship, the  INNIO Jenbacher and Q8Oils partnership focuses on sustainable solutions that support environmental  friendlier solutions, and this has resulted in the successful development of Jenbacher S Oil 40 gas engine oil,” said Andreas Kunz, CTO, INNIO.

Jenbacher S Oil 40 is available from 1st March 2021.
