Due to the continuous filtration and care of the gas engine oil by the CJC® Lube Oil Filter, the operator prolonged the oil lifetime from 1,500 to 3,997 operating hours, an increase of more than 60% The viscosity amounted to 150 cSt after 3,997 hours and was still lower than before, with 164 cSt after approx. 1,500 hours (reference new oil viscosity at 40 °C = 126 cSt).
After 3,997 hours, the operator evaluates the test result as a success because the aim to double the oil lifetime has been reached. The other oil condition values were well below the limit at the end of the test period. That means that the oil filling would not have had to be replaced even after 3,997 hours.
Spectro Oil in the United Kingdom analyzed the oil samples. The independent oil laboratory has analysed the gas engine oil (GEO) from Mobil Oil Danmark A/S since 1997.
