Latest addition to the SENTRON family extends drain intervals to an unprecedented level of up to 8,000 hours

Mississauga, Ontario (Friday, October 10, 2014) ““ Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc., a Suncor Energy business, the innovators behind the high-performing SENTRON family of natural gas engine oils (NGEO), has launched the latest in the SENTRON line-SENTRON LD 8000. One of the major benefits of SENTRON LD 8000 is that it is so advanced, it provides up to 8,000 hours between drains*. In field testing conducted on a Caterpillar G3500 TALE series natural gas engine operating at a high load (>90%), SENTRON LD 8000 extended oil drain intervals by up to 300% longer than the leading global conventional competitor’s NGEO.

A long-life oil, SENTRON LD 8000 is suitable for use in 4-stroke engines that operate on natural gas, pre-treated sewage/bio-gas and selective pre-treated process gases. A premium low-ash SAE 40 lubricant, SENTRON LD 8000 is built from 99.9% pure base oil-among the purest in the world.

“We have put ground-breaking technology into our development of SENTRON LD 8000,” said Sharanie Patterson, category portfolio manager, Suncor Energy. “As a result, we are proud to be the industry leader that has raised the performance bar once again, for a product that provides maximum engine reliability and bottom line performance.”

In addition to breaking the drain barrier, field tests show that SENTRON LD 8000 takes oxidation control to unprecedented standards and offers better acid neutralization compared to leading conventional competitors. SENTRON LD 8000 also provides optimal performance for both older engine types and new lean burning engines in high temperature, high pressure operations.
