Shell Lubricants has introduced a new long-life axle fluid the company says offers improved fuel efficiency. SpiraxASX R has delivered a fuel economy improvement of more than 1% compared to competitive products, the company says. The new axle fluid is specially-formulated with synthetic base oils and additives providing improved lubrication of the drivetrain. It also lowers operating temperatures to extend equipment life, Shell officials announced. The new lube is designed for heavily-loaded axles and provides extra protection against gear wear and pitting, reducing premature failures, the company says.

• Oil Purification Systems has introduced a new on-board oil refining system the company says can reduce oil maintenance costs by 80% or more. The system continuously cleans the engine’s oil, extending drain intervals to up to hundreds of thousands of miles, the company claims. The company says a six-to 10-month payback is possible due to the increased oil change intervals. For more information, visit www.ops-1.com.
