BALTIMORE, Md. — Castrol announced that two of its diesel engine oils Castrol Hypuron S and Castrol Tection Extra have met the requirements of Mack EO-N Premium Plus ’03 specification.
The new Mack specification was developed to ensure optimum life and performance of Mack ASET AC and AI 2002/2003 EGR diesel engines. Oils that meet this specification will also enhance the performance of all Mack non-EGR diesel engines.
Mack EO-N Premium Plus ’03 requires diesel engine oils to perform at a higher standard with regards to handling higher levels of soot, resisting shearing, improving seal compatibility and meeting a new minimum total base number (TBN).
"Of the top selling 15W-40s in the US," said Jim Burke, off-road marketing manager for Castrol Heavy Duty Lubricants, "Hypuron S and Tection Extra are the only two oils that not only meet the Mack 03 spec but that also meet the "ideal" sulfated ash range requirements of Caterpillar’s ECF-1 specification."
Castrol’s unique formulation approach for these oils was based on a dual strategy to provide the best performance and protection for the new Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) engines, while at the same time providing for enhanced performance in new and older non-EGR engines, including Mack’s.
