Texaco Lubricants launches new premium performance engine oil

Texaco Lubricants has announced the introduction of a premium performance dispersant and detergent-type extended drain gas engine oil, HDAX 8200 SAE 40.

 The product has been designed for the latest generation of high output, turbocharged, low emission 4-cycle engines and is recommended for natural gas applications, particularly those in cogeneration environments. HDAX 8200 SAE 40 is formulated to meet catalyst compatibility requirements thanks to its low phosphorus additive formulation and is suitable for use with fuels containing low levels of sulphur and Chloro-Fluoro-Carbons (CFC)*.

Texaco’s HDAX 8200 SAE 40 product offers customers enhanced drain intervals and reduced oil usage due to good oxidation, nitration resistance, and base number retention. It also helps to reduce maintenance requirements through effective deposit, sludge, and wear control, while promoting engine cleanliness with robust dispersant or detergent, and oxidation or nitration resistant systems.

Formulated with premium base oils, HDAX 8200 SAE 40 contains extremely low sulphur, nitrogen and aromatics. The product features an advanced additive package containing ashless dispersants, oxidation inhibitors, metallic detergents and a metallic anti-wear agent. This provides good corrosion resistance, while helping to prevent combustion chamber deposits. The advanced low ash additive system also helps to reduce valve recession and lower pre-ignition risks.

 HDAX 8200 SAE 40 has already gained approval from MTU, for Series 4000 gas engines, Model types L61, L62, L63 and L64, as well as from Bergen Engines, for natural gas engines B36:45, B35:40, C26:33, and K-G1-2-3.
