Chevron's Delo brand of engine oils, lubricants, and coolants has introduced the latest member of the product family, Delo Synthetic Gear Lubricant SAE 75W-90. The new product, which offers thermal and oxidation stability and meets all OEM warranty requirements, is suitable for use in rear axles and differentials for fleets in the commercial transportation and construction markets.
Delo Synthetic Gear Lubricant SAE 75W-90 also meets SHAES 256 Rev C, a newly developed specification by Dana Corp to debut in the second quarter of 2007. The specification resulted from a need for a gear lubricant that can handle greater power densities at lower operating temperatures.
The product is a specially formulated synthetic lubricant designed to improve performance in subzero temperatures. A specification requirement for the SHAES 256 Rev C is the Kinematic Viscosity (KV), which entails operating procedures be run at -40° C. With the new specification, users may benefit from improved equipment durability, less churning losses, and fuel economy gains, particularly at low temperatures.
Chevron's Delo Synthetic gear oil is available in pail and drum sizes. Access www.chevrondelo.com for more details.
