Petro-Canada’s DURON and DURON XL Synthetic Blend heavy duty engine oils have added Caterpillar’s new ECF-1 (Engine Crankcase Fluid – 1) specification to their list of OEM and global credentials.
The ECF-1 specification was created to help Caterpillar’s ACERT (Advanced Combustion Emissions Reduction Technology) engines meet 2002 emissions regulations. ECF-1 defines an engine oil that provides higher soot control, acid neutralization capability, maximum thermal stability and wear control while minimizing diesel engine piston deposits.
Jim Abram, Category Manager, Heavy Duty Engine Oils and Commercial Products, Petro-Canada., says his company is committed to formulating lubricants that meet the specifications of all modern 4-stroke diesel engines, regardless of the emission control strategies being used.
“Unlike some other lubricant suppliers, Petro-Canada has never used the high ash technology that makes many API CI-4 oils unsuitable for Caterpillar ACERT engines. This means maintenance managers can consolidate lubricants because they can use DURON and DURON XL Synthetic Blend in both Caterpillar ACERT and new EGR engines.”
DURON and DURON XL Synthetic Blend are formulated from the patented HT purity process, Petro-Canada uses to produce 99.9 per cent pure base oils.
