Longest life and maximum safety with gas engine oils from ADDINOL
ADDINOL Lube Oil GmbH has been a specialist in the development and production of high-performance lubricants for over 70 years. Lubrication of permanently installed gas engines, in particular for operation with special gases, is one of our core competencies.
A gas engine powered by biogas places the highest demands on gas engine oil; the gas quality of every production system is different and is rarely constant. The output of the gas engine with varying gas quality and individual operating conditions depends essentially on the engine oil. Only with oil of the highest quality, specifically developed for the use in these engines, can the advantages of a biogas plant be enjoyed in the long term.
ADDINOL MG 40-Extra Plus gas engine oil is based on the latest additive technology and selected mineral base materials. Due to the extraordinary results achieved in laboratory and field tests, the oil has been approved by MWM, GE Jenbacher, MAN and MTU Onsite Energy for biogas, sewage gas, landfill gas and mine gas. In addition, ADDINOL MG 40-Extra LA gas engine oil has been registered by MWM and GE Jenbacher for use with all gases, by MAN for natural gas; tests with MTU Onsite Energy are still running.
ADDINOL gas engine oils proved their excellent performance in controlled field tests over 100,000 operating hours and based on more than 15,000 parameters as well as numerous engine inspections:
• Excellent protection from mechanical and corrosive wear
• Outstanding engine cleanliness
• Neutralizes aggressive contaminants
• Excellent stability against oxidation due to heat
• Long-life characteristics of oil and engine
ADDINOL monitors the use of MG 40-Extra Plus and LA by regular evaluation and oil analysis. Based on results and an internally developed matrix which reflects field test results, the oil change intervals are defined for every cogeneration system to ensure maximum oil life.
