Q8Oils And INNIO Partnership Yields New Lubricant

Q8Oils and INNIO Jenbacher have launched Jenbacher S Oil 40, a new lubricant for engines that operate on non-natural gas – including, but not limited to, biogas, sewage gas, and landfill gas. This is one of the first products developed by the long-term global partnership established by Q8Oils and INNIO in October 2020.

“Jenbacher S Oil 40 is the result of years of joint development and shared expertise, both in the laboratory and in field tests,” said Joris van der List, technology manager at Q8Oils. “In its development we have focused on core customer requirements, such as cleaner technology and extended oil life, as the prime drivers.”

Jenbacher S Oil 40 is a medium-ash synthetic (hydrocracked) oil for stationary gas engines. While it is designed for Jenbacher Type 2, 3, 4, and 6 engines that operate on non-natural gases, the Jenbacher S Oil 40 meets the requirements of all non-natural gas combustion engines.

“Our goal is to provide our customers with a highly reliable lubricant for efficient operations,” said Mark Hensen, customer development team manager, energy, at Q8Oils. “Close cooperation between engineers and scientists at INNIO Jenbacher and Q8Oils has created a high-quality lubricant which enables us to find specific solutions for our customers.”
