L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OIL
Full product specs:
Several years ago, natural gas engines were commonly lubricated with uncompounded naphthenic oils or conventional motor oils. Unfortunately, with those lubricants, oil deterioration and engine deposits resulted in frequent shutdowns for maintenance. Texas Refinery Corp. has formulated an oil with additives chosen specifically for L.P. and natural gas engine service. A low ash additive package is used which significantly improves piston deposit control.
Low Ash Oil
Quality Base Oils
No VI Improvers
Texas Refinery Corp. L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OILS do not contain viscosity index improvers. Some engines equipped with electrical governor actuators are not compatible with viscosity index improver polymers. This is because the crankcase oil lubricates these controls and precise control of those engines using electrical governor actuators cannot be provided if the engine oil uses VI improver polymers.
Helps Spark Ignited Engines
Texas Refinery Corp. L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OILS provide excellent service in heavy-duty spark ignited engines. Using these oils in the 7,000 hour field tests indicated no ring sticking or ring scuffing. In addition, there was no liner scuffing or carbon cutting from excessive piston top land deposits. During these same field tests oil consumption, and valve recession remained well within the test limits allowed. At the end of all specified oil change periods, the oil condition remained within limits for oxidation, nitration and Total Base Number (TBN).
Texas Refinery Corp. L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OIL has a TBN of 7.0. This is low in comparison to some of our oils used in other engines; however, most low ash oils used for L.P. and natural gas engine service only have Total Base Numbers of 5. The extra measure of safety with Texas Refinery Corp. L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OIL means it is possible for these oils to neutralize more acids and protect against the harmful effects of acids better than many of the commercial oils on the market.
Typical applications for L.P. & NATURAL GAS ENGINE OIL include engines manufactured by Caterpillar, Clark, Cooper-Bessmer, Cummins, Fairbanks Morse, Ingersoll-Rand, (category I, II and III), Stewart, Stevenson, Superior & Waukesha V.H.P. which call for low-ash-type oils for L.P. and natural gas engines.
