TORONTO, Ont. – ChevronTexaco Global Lubricants held a press conference at Truck World to announce the launch of its new Delo Extended Life Coolant (ELC).
Jim Arner, technical services manager with ChevronTexaco Global Lubricants, says the new product will “help improve the performance and reliability of the equipment out there.”
He points out 22 per cent of non-scheduled maintenance work can be attributed to the cooling system, with 60 per cent of those problems further traced to the water pump.
The new coolant is designed to work with the new exhaust gas re-circulation (EGR) engines, which are expected to generate more heat than older engines.
“Heat transfer is even more critical than it has been in the past,” says Arner.
“Delo ELC offers better value for customers.”
In order to prove this, the company has created a cost comparison worksheet that shows while there is a higher price tag on jugs of Delo ELC, the cost is recouped thanks to increased longevity of the product.
In fact, over the life of the product, Arner says $650 in savings per truck can be attained.
Delo ELC features supplemental coolant additives to help combat cavitation corrosion, one of the worst enemies of a truck’s engine.
Arner says it also delivers improved heat transfer and water pump protection, with water pump seal failures dramatically reduced.
Delo ELC will soon be on store shelves, and will be available in a pre-diluted 50/50 format as well as a concentrated product.
It is also CAT EC-1-approved.
