Valvoline launches All-Terrain off-highway diesel engine oil
U.S.-based lube manufacturer Valvoline Inc. has launched ValvolineTM All-Terrain, a new engine oil specially formulated for off-highway, heavy-duty diesel engines operating in severe conditions and extreme duty cycles.
“Not all heavy-duty engines are created equal. Valvoline All-Terrain was developed specifically with a focus on wear protection in equipment operating in harsh environments such as those experienced in mining, construction and agriculture,” said Edward Murphy, Valvoline senior group leader, Heavy-Duty Formulations. “This innovative product is designed for the heavy-duty diesel engine that needs superior wear protection in extreme applications and high idle time.”
“This engine oil was developed for heavy-duty vehicle operators with off- and on-highway engines who are looking for an oil to help protect critical engine parts against the challenges of severe duty cycles,” said David Young, vice president of Sales, Valvoline Heavy Duty.
“Valvoline All-Terrain has demonstrated real-world engine performance, providing outstanding wear protection for critical engine parts and enhanced viscosity and oxidation stability in rigorous fleet testing.”
The engine oil was tested in 25,000 hours of field trials among real fleets operating in mining and agriculture with extreme duty cycles. Even engines that were pushed to more than twice the OEM recommended oil drain interval, demonstrated excellent sludge, deposit and wear control, the company said.
Valvoline All-Terrain comes in both SAE 10W-30 and SAE 15W-40 viscosity grades and is recommended for diesel engines operating in a wide variety of environments calling for API service CK-4 and prior service categories CJ-4, CI-4 PLUS, CI-4, and CH-4.
Both large (bulk, tote and drum) and small packs (quart, gallon and pail) are now available.
