Q8Oils, INNIO launch lubricant for non-natural gas engines
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.
