Ergon's New Bright Stock HyGold 5000BS Now Available

Mon., Sep 26, 2016

Jackson, Miss. – Ergon Refining, Inc., has announced the availability of HyGold 5000BS, a product of the company's investment in the latest Group I bright stock refining technology.

HyGold 5000BS offers a unique combination of high viscosity, low pour point, low odor and high flash point. Its color and appearance are superior to other bright stocks on the market.

This product is well-suited for a wide range of lubricant applications. Many of Ergon's current and future customers have been testing the product for more than a year and are finding “no harm” in applications including greases, marine engine oils and cylinder lubes, high viscosity/monograde engine oils and a variety of industrial gear oils.

Recent modifications at the company's refinery in Vicksburg, MS, allow for production capacity of 150,000 tonnes or one million bbls per year of HyGold 5000BS. Purchase orders are now being accepted for October 2016 shipment.

With this investment, Ergon becomes the second largest Group I bright stock producer in the world. The development of HyGold 5000BS stems from the company's commitment to meeting current and future global market demand for specialty base oil products.
