Lubrizol recently introduced two new advanced four-stroke, low-ash technologies for the stationary natural gas market.

Lubrizol SG9L01 is an additive package formulated to deliver varnish and deposit protection at extreme temperatures, reduced combustion chamber deposits, improved copper corrosion protection and wear protection. In addition to these benefits, the new Lubrizol SG9L20 additive solution also promises extended oil life for maximized uptime, improved maintenance interval planning and increased overhaul intervals.

"Lubrizol's advanced technology resources brought these products to life," says Paul Nai, Lubrizol global business manager. "We've put novel chemistry to work in order to deliver higher performance beyond what has been seen before in stationary natural gas additive technology."

Lubrizol's investment in stationary natural gas and its development of new additive packages reflect the company's commitment to this growing market. Stationary natural gas is one of the world's fastest growing primary energy resources, accounting for 24 percent of the global primary energy consumption. It is anticipated to increase 50 percent by 2040, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

"Over the past decade, Lubrizol has dedicated significant resources and capital to the development of these highly advanced additive packages," says Al Haas, Lubrizol global product manager. "Through exhaustive screen testing, field trials and our deep industry relationships, we can confidently deliver on important needs of OEMs and engine operators."
