PRODUCT NEWS / Post date: 1 February 2018
Castrol has launched Transmax Manual E Long Life 40. This new product meets all of the requirements of the next generation heavy-duty manual transmission specifications put forth by Eaton® and others.
Along with the new Eaton PS-386 approval, the product is also approved under API Category MT-1, Mack TO-A Plus, Meritor O-81, and Navistar MPAPS B-6816 Type II.
This new product is required by Eaton for all equipment fills that are still under warranty and that specify a PS-386-approved product. It can be used in place of Castrol Syngear CD-50 (with its PS-164 approval) in applications where Syngear CD-50 has been used previously.
New Transmax Manual E Long Life 40 can provide extended drain capabilities up to 500,000 miles while maintaining superior shear stability. It can also provide up to a 1.5% improvement in fuel economy and it demonstrates excellent protection from corrosion, foaming, rust, and wear.
It is formulated to protect higher-torque transmissions coupled with increased horsepower engines and is approved for use in Eaton transmissions such as Ultrashift Plus, Fuller Advantage, FR and RT Series transmissions.
Castrol offers this new fluid in 5-gallon pails, 16-gallon kegs, and 55-gallon drums. Importantly, Eaton has required that all packs containing PS-386 fluid include an Eaton PS-386 approved placard… please be sure to look for this notification.
