D-A Blue Flame HB-8™ is designed specifically for use in engines fueled by processed natural gas or other gas sources that may contain corrosive materials. It is a medium ash, natural gas engine oil engineered for maximum performance in turbocharged or naturally aspirated medium and high speed (rpm) gas engines. It is formulated for exceptional control of engine deposits and wear, minimized exhaust valve recession, longer oil life and limited corrosive wear in both normal and severe service. The HardBase™ TBN of eight (HB-8) comes from an exclusive detergent/dispersant additive system providing a new level of deposit control for medium ash oils while also effectively neutralizing the corrosive by-products of combustion.
D-A Blue Flame HB-8 is formulated with thermally stable, high VI base oils that are naturally resistant to oxidation. These base oils are combined with a unique additive system that further extends oil oxidation life. Special valve cushioning additive components help reduce exhaust valve seat and face wear during severe service.
