CASTROL VECTON

Castrol VECTON
Castrol® VECTON® with unique SYSTEM PRO TECHNOLOGY™ is an advanced part-synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oil offering longer oil life and service intervals.
 

Castrol VECTON is specifically engineered to deliver longer oil life and enable longer service intervals—even under severe operating conditions. This exceptional diesel oil conforms to the latest engine oil specifications and is available in three viscosity grades.

 

Castrol VECTON delivers a 45% extra performance reserve* that fights oil breakdown by helping to control oxidation, reduce deposits, and neutralize harmful acids. It also adapts to higher temperatures, which helps to maintain viscosity.

 

* Average of percentages by which VECTON exceeds the industry standard requirement limits in API CK-4 and ACEA E9-16 engine tests for viscosity maintenance, heat protection, deposit control, minimum oil limits and acid neutralization. In API CK-4 tests only, the VECTON performance reserve is 37%.

All VECTON Products are Carbon NeutraL

Castrol wants to make a difference to your fleet; one that leaves an impression that reflects positively on your business. Through BP Target Neutral – a program that invests in carbon-reduction projects around the world – all Castrol VECTON products are certified CO2-neutral according to the internationally applicable PAS 2060 standard.

Castrol VECTON Long Drain SAE 10W-30 CK-4
Vecton 15W-40 CK-4/E9

Castrol VECTON 15W-40 CK-4/E9

CASTROL VECTON 15W-40 CK-4/E9 with unique System Pro Technology™ is an advanced heavy duty engine oil. Conforming to the requirements of PC-11 engine oil technology, it can be used in diesel engines where API CK-4 or, CJ-4 and below is required. Specifically engineered to deliver longer oil life, enabling longer service intervals even under severe operating conditions.

 

New technology developments in diesel engines have led to lower emissions in heavy duty vehicles. These technology advances result in increasing levels of torque within the engine, leading to higher pressures and temperatures. Castrol VECTON 15W-40 CK-4/E9 with unique System Pro Technology™ adapts to increased pressure and temperature with its strong shear stability and proven oxidation performance, extending useful life of the oil for longer service intervals and higher productivity.

 

Oil drain intervals vary based on factors such as engine type, duty cycle and fuel burn. Consult service manuals for recommended oil drain intervals. Extended drains may be possible if done in conjunction with Castrol’s Used Oil Analysis (UOA) program and in consultation with Castrol’s Technical Services team.

 

Features and Benefits:

  • Excels under high pressure:  engine combustion pressures are increasing, which puts increased pressure on key engine parts. Castrol VECTON 15W-40 CK-4/E9 with unique System Pro Technology™ is formulated to hold its viscosity under high shear contacts to extend oil life.
  • Performs at high temperature:  engine oil is subjected to areas of very high temperature in modern engines, causing oxidation and oil thickening.  Castrol VECTON 15W-40 CK-4/E9 is formulated to fight oxidation to extend oil life.
