WAYNE, N.J. – BP Lubricants USA has introduced Castrol Hypuron S, a partial synthetic diesel engine oil designed for heavy-duty engines. Blended with a precisely engineered partial synthetic base stock, Castrol Hypuron S is claimed to provide superior performance and protection for engines while enhancing component and equipment life, lowering maintenance costs and increasing profitability.
Company officials say the superior performance of Castrol Hypuron S allows fleets to extend service intervals while maximizing equipment life, therefore reducing total cost per mile.
Officials also say the oil provides exceptional dispersancy to manage the higher soot levels generated by EGR engines, and robust detergency to neutralize higher acid levels. Castrol officials say the oil meets the newest specifications from both Mack and Caterpillar, and it surpasses the ideal performance requirements of many other engine manufacturers. Formulated with low ash technology, Castrol Hypuron S is designed to minimize oil consumption, reduce piston deposit formation and increase oil film strength.
BP Lubricants USA Inc. has also announced the offering of Castrol Tection Extra, a 15W-40 diesel engine oil, in the retail, mass, truck stop and auto parts channels.
Retail locations include AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, CSK, Pep Boys, O’Reilly, Strauss, Love’s Truck Stops and Wal-Mart.
“Now owner/operators can get the same protection and superior products that we’ve been providing to fleet and off-road customers,” said Karla DelGallo, brand manager, consumer truck for BP Lubricants. “We see this as a great opportunity to bring our premium products to more users through this new channel.”
According to company officials, Castrol Tection Extra has an unsurpassed viscosity protection among diesel engine oils that fights viscosity loss with a unique polymer and resists breakdown. They also said it has superior dispersancy to manage high soot levels, powerful detergency to neutralize acids generated in the engine and a unique low ash chemistry that will not compromise performance in older engines.
The oil meets CI-4 Plus specifications and passed the Mack T-11 soot handling test, as well as the revised version of the Kurt Orbahn shear stability test, which are necessary to be API CI-4 Plus approved.
Castrol Tection Extra is available in SAE 15W-40 grade where API CI-4 Plus, CI-4, CH-4, CG-4, CF-4/SL is recommended for stay-in-grade requirements. It is approved for use in all major large diesel engines, including Mack (EO-N Premium Plus 03, EO-N & EO-M+), Volvo, Cummins (20078, 20076, 20072 and 20071), Caterpillar (ECF-1) and Detroit Diesel (Powerguard 93K214).
