Petro-Canada Lubricants has announced that its Sentron LD 5000 premium natural-gas engine oil has been approved by GE Jenbacher for use in all of its Type 6 engines fuelled by natural gas.

The field trials were conducted in GE Jenbacher J620 and J420 engines up to 20 bar used in CHP (combined heat and power) applications, including a chemical plant in Germany and a textile manufacturing plant in Spain.

During field trials, Sentron LD 5000 displayed extended drain capability without detriment to engine cleanliness, particularly regarding ring-zone deposits, due to its very robust detergency capabilities.

Sentron LD 5000 is approved by several OEMs, including GE Jenbacher, MAN, MTU, Waukesha, Guascor and MDE, and has been verified by Caterpillar.

High-performance additives are incorporated in the oil for the extra performance required for severe service applications, including high-output, turbocharged engines that encounter high exhaust-gas temperatures.

With its robust base retention and acid resistance, it is also expected to meet the more severe operational needs of CHP, light biogas, sewage gas, coal-bed methane and halogen-free landfill gas operations.

Type 6 engines serve the 1.8 to 3MW power range.

Its 1,500rpm engine speed results in a high power density and low installation costs.

The Type 6 pre-combustion chamber achieves maximum efficiency with low emissions.
