Heavy-duty diesel engines

Build Up Your Engine’s Protection

Over time, metal-to-metal contact – caused by low speeds, high loads, cold starts, shock loading and extended idling – can cause debilitating engine damage. These daily demands require an engine oil with adequate viscosity control in extreme conditions, to prevent abrasive wear.

Transmission systems

Stop Contamination at the Source

Dirt, dust and water from your site can break down your oil, limiting its effectiveness and exposing your transmission to wear. A high-quality transmission oil with good oxidation resistance can limit degradation, reducing downtime by reducing oil change frequency.

Gears

Shift Gear Performance Up A Level

Conditions on site can be unpredictable. To keep gears moving, your grease must maintain performance in the harshest of conditions. Meaning: mechanical stability to resist breakdowns, oxidation stability for system efficiency and water washout resistance for excellent corrosion protection.

Hydraulics

Strengthen Foundations with High-Quality Hydraulic Fluid

Hydraulic fluid needs to protect, lubricate and transmit power efficiently. But uneven terrain exposes your oil to air ingress, risking cavitation in your hydraulic pumps. To combat this, hydraulic fluid must offer reliable air release, excellent filterability and improved cleanliness.
