Ecological heating oil with low sulfur content
The sulfur content was again massively reduced compared to the heating oil qualities known today. With a sulfur content at the natural gas level of less than 0.001%, the formation of sulfur oxide is no longer a problem. Almost residue-free combustion ensures a clean boiler during operation. During the winter season, constant and high energy use is guaranteed. Polluting emissions are minimized when using eco-friendly low sulfur heating oil.
With low sulfur heating oil, heating requires little maintenance. Boiler manufacturers therefore recommend the use of environmentally friendly heating oil. In the case of new heating devices specially adapted to the special properties of the new fuel, the use of environmentally friendly heating oil is even required.
Diesel and Petrol
The most common fuel in Switzerland is petrol. It is obtained from crude oil through distillation and various refining processes.
Depending on the design and compression ratio, gasoline engines require a fuel with a knock rating of 95 or 98 octane. Most engines today can run on 95 octane unleaded gasoline. With the help of special processing methods, by adding high-octane components, the octane number can be increased to 98.
Unleaded motor gasoline was introduced to the market so that vehicles with gasoline engines could be equipped with catalytic converters for advanced emissions control. In colloquial language we speak of “lead-free 95” and “lead-free 98”.
To ensure that petrol engines work perfectly all year round, petrol is sold in winter quality (from 1 October to 31 March) and summer quality (from 1 April to 30 September). The only difference between the two qualities is their volatility. In winter, greater volatility of gasoline is required to ensure good cold starting properties. In summer, however, low volatility is necessary to avoid the formation of vapor bubbles.
Lubricant Bases Group l+
The rerefined lubricating bases obtained with a high pressure catalytic hydrogenation process have chemical-physical and compositional characteristics ideal for use in various lubrication applications, both in the automotive and industrial sectors.
The very low content of sulfur and aromatic components and the high viscosity index favor the choice of formulation solutions in a wide viscosity range, capable of satisfying the most severe performance and environmental requirements required of modern lubricants, thus also allowing savings in the use of additives in formulation
Lubricant Bases Group ll+
Thanks to advanced re-refining technology and further refinement of the hydrogenation process, it has created the new HG Group II+ product range, a step towards the future needs of its customers.
- More stringent engine testing and new “Manufacturer” specifications require an HG Group II+ base oil
- A mix of Viscolube HG Group II+ base oils may perform better than a mix of Group I/III base oils
- More than 75% of engine oil demand can be met using HG Group II+ bases
- More than 95% of the demand for industrial oils can be met using HG Group II+ bases.
- They are ideal with Low/Mid SAPS additives
- They reduce formulation complexity
- They save on formula cost
