SAN RAMON, Cal. — Chevron has introduced a new Delo Grease ESI (extended service interval), boasting service intervals of 30,000 miles or more.
The ESI grease is designed to reduce friction and wear for a wide variety of on- and off-road applications. Delo Grease ESI is ideal for Classes 6-8 trucks in a variety of applications, including: wheel bearing, chassis, steering drag links, kingpins, shackle pins, transmission cross shaft spring pins, brake cam shafts, and fifth wheel faceplates and pivots operating under high and low temperature conditions.
“Time spent in the shop on maintenance is lost income,” said Len Badal, commercial sector manager, Chevron Lubricants. “The extended service interval capabilities of Delo Grease ESI, matched with other Delo products like our Extended Life Coolant, Gear Lubricant ESI, Trans Fluid ESI and Delo 400 LE 15W-40 allows our customers to safely protect their equipment while maximizing uptime and profitability.”
The new grease is formulated using highly refined bas stocks, a lithium complex thickener, rust and oxidation inhibitors and pressure and tackiness additives, the company says. It’s compatible with automatic centralized greasing systems and in wheel bearings operating near high temperatures.
Chevron claims its new Delo Grease ESI excels in: bearing water washout; load wear index; low temperature torque; and automotive wheel bearing life comparisons. The new grease will be available across North America late in the second quarter.
