Our Liquid Engineers understand the importance of keeping engines productive and avoiding unscheduled maintenance. We have designed lubricants to handle the high oxidation and nitration stresses of gaseous fuel, and help extend oil-drain intervals and engine life.
Internal combustion engines running on coal gas, biogas, landfill gas or natural gas typically output between 50–20000 kW and each gas type presents its own challenges. We have developed products to support longer engine life in natural gas and mine gas applications, where there are high levels of methane as well as corrosive elements such as hydrogen sulfide.
We have also specifically designed products to help you efficiently neutralize the acids and damaging deposits that impurities in biogas – landfill gas and sewage gas produced from household and industrial waste – can generate on combustion.
To meet the challenges of gas engine operations, our Liquid Engineers recommend the following products:
Gas engines running on natural gas, or relatively ‘clean’ (low impurities) mine gas, digester and landfill gas.
Gas engines using moderately contaminated digester and landfill gas, as well as unclean natural gas, mine gas.
Gas engines running on highly-contaminated digester and landfill gas.
Gas engines running on natural gas, or relatively clean mine, digester and landfill-gas where operating conditions are severe and/or extended oil life is required
Gas engines using relatively clean natural gas, mine, digester and landfill gas where the highest performance using synthetic lubricants.
