WAYNE, N.J. — BP Lubricants USA has announced its Castrol Tection(TM) HD engine oil meets the requirements of the Caterpillar Engine Crankcase Fluid – 2 (ECF 2) specification, in addition to the list of specifications the engine oil has already met. Castrol Tection HD is engineered to provide superior soot management, deposit control and wear protection necessary to meet the ECF-2 specification, which applies to Caterpillar 3500 Series and smaller commercial and machine diesel engines along with all pre-2007 Caterpillar on-highway diesel engines.
Key to meeting the requirements, Castrol Tection HD is designed to disperse soot particles to prevent the excessive increase of viscosity, thereby protecting engines against soot-related wear and the generation of soot deposits. The oil is also designed to enhance engine efficiency and maximizes engine life by lessening the risk of piston deposit production and providing protection against engine wear.
“We are committed to providing the highest quality products and surpassing industry requirements,” said Steve Goodier, director of technology at Castrol. “Castrol Tection HD provides the best solution for customers who need an engine oil that meets Caterpillar ECF-2 requirements.
Castrol Tection HD and other oils meeting the Cat ECF-2 specification are not applicable to Caterpillar engines equipped with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF). Caterpillar strongly recommends that Caterpillar engines equipped with DPFs use oil that meets the Cat ECF-3 specification, such as Castrol Tection Extra.
Along with the Caterpillar ECF-2 requirements, Castrol Tection HD already meets the demands of a long list of engine oil specifications including API CI-4 Plus, Cummins CES 20078, Volvo VDS-3, Mack EONpp, and Detroit Diesel Power Guard.
