Chevron’s New Heavy Duty Engine Oil
By Mike Osenga08 November 2019
Chevron Products Co., a division of Chevron U.S.A. Inc., the manufacturer of engine oils, lubricants and coolants, has launched a new heavy-duty engine oil (HDEO) product, Delo 600 ADF with Omnimax, a Chevron patented technology.
Delo 600 ADF with Omnimax is designed to deliver system protection to both the engine and the emissions system. Chevron said current heavy-duty engine oils are formulated up to the API CK-4 limit of 1% sulfated ash. Delo 600 ADF is formulated to 0.4% sulfated ash, Chevron said, which helps to reduce the rate of diesel particulate filter (DPF) clogging. This in turn, is expected to deliver extended DPF service life and reduced operating costs.
Delo 600 ADF meets or exceeds API CK-4 & OEM specifications, and has demonstrated oxidation stability in industry, OEM and field tests, providing the opportunity to extend engine oil drain intervals, Chevron said. Delo 600 ADF also delivers valve-train wear protection and piston deposit performance.
The full Delo 600 ADF line will be available on December 2nd and will include: Delo 600 ADF 15W-40 and Delo 600 ADF 10W-30
“Chevron has taken a customer-forward approach by realizing early on, the extent of the problems caused by the integration of hardware to address the latest emissions regulations and current HDEOs, and today we’re announcing a new solution,” said James Booth, NA Commercial Sector Manager at Chevron. “Delo 600 ADF significantly reduces the rate of DPF clogging, extending DPF service life by up to 2.5 times, and bringing a 3% fuel economy retention advantage over the life of the equipment, delivering significant savings to customers. Let’s not forget this is an engine oil, and we have seen remarkable performance in engine protection too, which will add to the value Delo 600 ADF will bring customers.”
