Engine Care Systems Australasia recommends the Amsoil Synthetic Stationary Natural Gas engine oil for continuous protection in stationary gas engines that require an SAE 40, low-ash lubricant.
“Its shear-stable formula qualifies it as a multi-grade 20W-40 so it can be used over a broad ambient temperature range, eliminating the need for seasonal oil changes,” said Engine Care Systems’ Laurie Hyland.
Gas-powered engines are increasingly used for power generation, various types of pumps and other ancillary machinery for site services. Many maintenance engineers recognise the need for specialised lubricants that address common problems, such as carbon deposits and port blockages.
“This product is formulated with low sulphated ash to minimise carbon deposits and port blockage, resulting in reduced maintenance and extended equipment life,” said Hyland.
“Premium base oils and additives are designed to improve engine lubrication by keeping oil passages clean. The balanced formula of ANGS allows for a high total base number (TBN) to protect against corrosion while meeting low ash requirements.”
Amsoil Synthetic Stationary Natural Gas engine oil is recommended for stationary four-stroke and select two-stroke engines that require low-ash (< 50%) engine oil and are fuelled by natural gas.
“Nitration is a common concern in natural gas engines and can cause oil to thicken, reducing operational efficiency. This oil is naturally resistant to nitration, delivering maximum protection in natural gas engines,” said Hyland.
“In addition, low zinc and phosphorus levels prolong the life of emission catalyst systems without sacrificing wear protection.”
