D-A Blue Flame HB-5™ is designed specifically for use in medium and high speed (rpm) gas engines fueled by processed natural gas or other gas sources that may contain corrosive materials. The Hard Base™ TBN of five (HB-5) comes from an exclusive detergent/dispersant additive system providing a new level of deposit control for low ash oils while also effectively neutralizing the corrosive by-products of combustion.
D-A Blue Flame HB-5 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. The low ash, low phosphorus composition is compatible with exhaust gas catalytic converters and promotes longer spark plug life for minimized maintenance costs.
