Petro-Canada SENTRON™ LD 8000 is a premium
performance, long life natural gas engine oil (NGEO)
specially formulated to lubricate natural gas engines
and compressors.
SENTRON LD 8000’s extended drain intervals can
mean lower maintenance costs, less used oil to
dispose of and a more efficient and profitable
SENTRON LD 8000’s exceptional performance is
especially important in the severe service conditions
common in compression, power generation and
combined heat and power applications. Its
outstanding anti-wear protection helps to minimize
polish and wear of cylinder liners and wear of piston
rings, while helping to reduce carbon buildup.
That can mean:
• Longer service intervals
• Cleaner engines with less wear
• Less downtime
• Less backfiring
• Fewer service calls
SENTRON LD 8000 is formulated with
Petro-Canada’s pure HT Severely Hydrocracked base
oils and highly advanced additive technology to help
deliver a combination of extended oil life, and
excellent control of engine deposits in many
applications. Offering exceptional protection against
wear and corrosion, SENTRON helps provide worry-free
operation, increased engine durability and engine life,
which can lead to a reduction in overall operating

Features and Benefits: 

• Revolutionary extended drain intervals can reduce maintenance and provide savings: 

• Field tests show that SENTRON LD 8000 extends oil drain intervals by up to 300%* in Caterpillar G3500TALE engines, in a natural gas compression application in comparison to the leading global conventional competitor. This trial was completed with pipeline gas quality, under high load > 90% conditions. The extended drain interval helps to: • Reduce downtime and maximize production availability. • Lower operating costs by reducing maintenance costs. • Increase uptime, leading to a reliable business operation. • Longer oil life provides long-lasting equipment protection: • Exceptional resistance to breakdown caused by oxidation and nitration. • Outstanding capability to neutralize acids through greater Total Base Number (TBN) retention. The greater the TBN retention, the greater the ability of the oil to neutralize acid, extend drain life and inhibit wear, corrosion and deposits. • Helps extend engine life by reducing varnish, sludge and carbon deposits as well as by inhibiting wear and corrosion. • Helps improve engine performance. • Outstanding anti-wear/anti-scuff protection helps to: • Reduce wear on piston rings, cylinder liners and bearings, prolonging engine life and reducing oil consumption. • Control and minimize valve recession. • Reduce operating and maintenance costs. • Keeps engine parts clean by: • Minimizing ring zone and valve stem deposits. • Improving engine lubrication by maintaining clean oil-ways. • Maximizing the time between major engine overhauls. • Preventing corrosion. • Inventory consolidation: • Specially formulated to enhance nitration control, SENTRON LD 8000 is suitable in both low and high nitrating engines, thus allowing the consolidation of products which apply to only one type of nitrating engine. • SENTRON LD 8000 goes a step beyond SENTRON LD 5000 in terms of nitration control.
