Chevron Oronite last Thursday issued a clarifying statement on its March 26, 2013 news release in which it indicated it had ‘received approval from GE Jenbacher for OLOA® 46600’.
In last week's clarification statement, Oronite clarified that GE Jenbacher only gives official approvals for finished oils, not on additives. Thus, finished oils formulated with OLOA® 46600 in group II base oils have met the requirements for inclusion on the GE Jenbacher Technical Instruction List for Class C and Class B fuels. After undergoing rigorous testing – over 30,000 hours – GE Jenbacher found that every one of the used oil analyses using OLOA® 46600 showed positive results, making OLOA® 46600 a broad solution for multiple engine types..
The previously mentioned Oronite announcement was shown in the April 1, 2013 issue of the OEM/Lube News. To view our story based on the previously mentioned Oronite news release, please click here.
