CRL 1-hr: Nov 7 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Chevron Products Company, a manufacturer of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, today introduced HDAX 7200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil SAE 40. The new oil is specifically designed for large stationary gas engines in gas compression, processing or co-generation applications that operate in extreme environments. HDAX 7200 Low Ash is particularly suited for lean-burn and stoichiometric four-stroke engines operating under high load, high temperature conditions as well as selected two-stroke gas engines requiring good low temperature startability.

The new oil is formulated with high-quality Group II base stocks and uses a proprietary, premium additive package containing ashless dispersants, oxidation inhibitors, metallic detergents and a metallic anti-wear agents. This combination of high-quality Group II base stock and a premium additive package results in excellent wear protection, helping to maximize equipment life and resulting in minimal downtime and maintenance costs.

Chevron’s HDAX 7200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil SAE 40 is formulated to meet NSCR catalyst compatibility requirements and is especially suited for installations requiring low phosphorus oil to prevent exhaust catalyst poisoning.

“HDAX is a brand known for exceeding OEM specifications, customer demands and market challenges,” said Rochna Kaul, Americas Marketing Manager, Chevron Products Company. “Our new HDAX 7200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil lives up to that legacy and will allow our customers to maximize their technology investments by delivering long engine life, fewer maintenance cycles and extended oil drains.  As gas engines made by top North American and European manufacturers increase in power and efficiency, they will need an oil designed to successfully handle these conditions; HDAX 7200 Low Ash is that oil.”

HDAX 7200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil SAE 40 provides the following potential benefits:

·      Exceptional engine performance - Minimizes the formation of engine deposits
·      Low wear - Protects against piston, ring, and liner scuffing, scoring, and wear
·      Valve recession protection - Reduces the potential for pre-ignition and spark plug fouling
·      Long oil life - Delivers maximum flexibility in maintenance scheduling
·      Clean pistons - Helps to prevent ring sticking and maintains clean, varnish-free piston skirts
·      Clean crankcases and top decks - Minimizes the formation of sludge in the crankcase, valve cover and top deck area
