Chevron Lubricants launches HDAX 9200 engine oil for natural gas applications

  • Exclusive formulation designed to meet the demanding needs of high speed 4-stroke gas engines in cogeneration applications 

  • Offers significant deposit control, sludge, wear and corrosion protection 

  • Extended oil drain cycle and longer oil service life

18 April 2016. Chevron Lubricants is pleased to announce the launch of a new engine oil for natural gas engine applications, HDAX 9200.  The new product offers robust component protection with reliable corrosion resistance and good combustion chamber deposit protection. HDAX 9200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil SAE 40 has been formulated with a combination of premium base oils and high performance additives which extend oil drain periods, while low fluid volatility helps reduce oil consumption.  

HDAX 9200 is designed for the latest generation high output, turbocharged, low emission 4-stroke engines which require low ash lubricant technology.  The oil has strong oxidation and nitration resistance and strong base retention characteristics which help to prolong oil service life and minimise viscosity increases while in service. 

Chevron Lubricants Power Generation Co-Ordinator – Europe Paul Nadin-Salter said: “Following a number of extensive field trials with the latest generation of high BMEP engines, the HDAX 9200 engine oil has demonstrated the ability to provide protection at low oil consumption rates, minimise combustion chamber and piston deposits and extend drain capability.  These benefits combine to give customers reduced costs for oil and maintenance work and help to avoid the cost of buying power on the grid.”

The new product is formulated with Group II premium base oil, offering low sulphur, nitrogen and aromatic content, in combination with ashless dispersant and oxidation inhibitors, with a metallic detergent and anti-wear additive system.

HDAX 9200 Low Ash Gas Engine Oil SAE 40 is formulated to meet catalyst compatibility requirements with low phosphorus levels and is suitable for use with fuels containing low levels of sulphur and chloro-fluoro-carbons (CFC).
