Chevron Products Company, maker of the Delo brand of technologically advanced heavy duty engine oils, lubricants and coolants, has unveiled a new category of heavy duty motor oil designed to address the growth of severe duty applications in on- and off-highway markets. Delo 400 SD SAE 15W-30 is an API CJ-4 heavy duty diesel engine oil formulated using a new Chevron patent pending technology to provide key benefits for engines with “severe duty” cycles in on- and off-highway applications.
“The increase in severe duty operations is due to changing driving habits on highway, including shorter haul lengths, the growth in intermodal delivery, and more stop-and-go operations, while off-highway has new energy efficient equipment that helps minimize fuel usage by cycling engines from load to no load,” said Jim Gambill, Manager Americas Marketing with Chevron Products Company. “In order for engines to last as long as they’re designed to, we need to reassess maintenance practices for this type of operations. A critical part of this process is to find an engine oil which is not just heavy duty, but severe duty.”
