Puma Energy Australia has launched its own brand of lubricants. Previously, Puma Energy Australia sold lubricants from other suppliers.
“Our products include heavy duty industrial oils, transmission fluids, industrial gear oils, hydraulic oils, coolants and brake fluids, detergents and degreasers, as well as passenger car motor oils,” said Ray Taylor, general manager, Puma Energy Australia.
Puma Lubricants’ product range includes mineral oils, semi- and full-synthetic oils. The products are manufactured in Singapore by a world-class partner which has state-of-the-art lube blending facility, he said.
Among the lubricant products being introduced by Puma Energy Australia is an API CK-4 diesel engine oil, Puma HD Ultra 15W-40.
“Our new Puma Lubricants incorporate molecular technology, offering a new level of protection from engine wear,” Taylor said.
He added that Puma Energy is one of the first lubricant marketers to introduce API CK-4 diesel engine oil into the Australian market.
“They protect engines from wear, oil oxidation, filter-plugging, sludge and soot-thickening, while also meeting or exceeding the new generation of diesel engines with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF).”
“With diesel engine approvals from leading manufacturers, including Mack, Cummins, Volvo and others, our range has proven performance around the world, from South African mines and Central American transport fleets to Australia’s DirectHaul road trains.”
“Trials of our Puma HD Ultra 15W-40 on our hardest working DirectHaul quad road trains, in some of Australia’s harshest working conditions between Darwin and Alice Springs, delivered promising results. These trials have shown a decrease in engine wear iron levels and oil oxidation levels, as well as improved shear stability; keeping the product’s viscosity in grade for the life of the oil change when tested at 100°C.”
He said the launch of Puma Lubricants in Australia meant the company was now able to deliver fully integrated, cost-effective supply chain solutions across the country with a suite of its own products.
“What also sets us apart is our ownership of infrastructure, depots and transport, which allows us to deliver fast, flexible service to our customers.
“With our wholly owned subsidiary, DirectHaul, we have our own fleet of vehicles and drivers, which means we can deliver fuel and lubricants to remote and demanding environments across Australia,” he added.
