What is diesel engine oil for?

Castrol’s range of diesel engine oils are formulated to deliver a high level of engine protection throughout service intervals, which can help you save on maintenance costs, repairs and downtime.

 

The value that your commercial vehicles and equipment deliver to your business depends on robust engine oils that are capable of helping engines combat heavy loads and challenging environments. When they also help extend service intervals, the value to your business is even greater. Castrol’s range of engine oils has been formulated to provide high levels of protection and increase the time your fleet is on the road, delivering value.

 

Our Liquid Engineers have developed engine oils that meet a range of needs:

  • Extended drain intervals – validated with a proper used oil analysis program like Castrol Labcheck
  • Improved fuel efficiency
  • For use in both diesel and natural gas-fueled engines
  • Excellent anti-wear protection
  • High resistance to acid corrosion

 

Our range includes engine oils that meet—and exceed—OEM specifications for Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Mack and Volvo.

VECTON® LONG DRAIN 5W-30 CK-4

PERFORMANCE ADVANTAGES

 

Castrol VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN with unique SYSTEM PRO TECHNOLOGY™ delivers up to 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. This means longer useful oil life, giving
you confidence in your maximum drain interval.^

 

DRAIN INTERVALS UP TO 80,000 MILES OR 1,000 HOURS^

 

PROVEN COLD START BENEFITS

 

Compared to conventional 15W-40 oils, Castrol VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN starts flowing through the engine faster, lubricating vital engine components sooner, helping to prevent engine damage at cold start. In addition, Castrol VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN requires lower power to crank the engine to life in cold temperatures than the
conventional 15W-40 oil. This means fewer no-starts. Furthermore, this indicates a potential for improved battery life and starter motor life.

 

FUEL ECONOMY

 

Due to the high quality, full-synthetic base stocks in its formulation, Castrol VECTON Long Drain 5W-30 CK-4/SN can help improve fuel economy without compromising engine protection. Up to 2% improvement vs. SAE 15W-40 oil1 in class 8 diesel engine bench testing.

OTHER HEAVY DUTY DIESEL ENGINE OILS

Castrol Assuron™ (SAE 10W, 30, 40, and 50)

 

These high-performance, heavy-duty monograde engine oils couple selected base stocks with a carefully balanced additive package. Castrol Assuron has proven performance in various on- and off-highway heavy-duty diesel engines, particularly in applications requiring API CF-2.

ON-ROAD NATURAL GAS ENGINE OILS

Castrol Duratec™ ES 15W-40

Duratec ES SAE 15W-40 is specifically formulated for modern natural gas engines with high-quality synthetic base oils that take performance to the next level – enabling drain intervals up to 1,200 hours.* 
 
Although natural gas engines burn cleaner, they also burn hotter, making acid neutralization and oxidation and nitration control critical in protecting engines from deposits and wear over the useful life of the oil.

 

Suppresses Oxidation and Nitration


Higher combustion temperatures can lead to increased oxidation and nitrogen oxide formation.  Duratec ES natural-gas engine oil suppresses and controls oxidation and nitration throughout extended drain intervals, preventing sludge, varnish, plugged filters, and deposits.

 
Outstanding Acid Neutralization


Acid formation can lead to corrosive wear.  Duratec ES has outstanding combustion acid-neutralization capability throughout extended drain intervals, which helps to prevent corrosion and protects critical engine parts. 

 

Meets Cummins CES 20092 Specification


Duratec ES meets the Cummins CES 20092 spec and it is fully backwards compatible.  Natural gas engine oils meeting this latest Cummins spec provide significantly improved oxidation and thermal stability compared to previous versions.

 

 
*Extending oil drain intervals should only be done in conjunction with a comprehensive used oil analysis program like Castrol Labcheck

 

Castrol Duratec™ NG 15W-40

Duratec NG SAE 15W-40 is formulated for use in natural gas-fueled engines where minimal thermal degradation and good deposit control are expected. Duratec NG provides outstanding resistance to nitration and oxidation.  It also provides improved cold temperature engine starting and reduced oil consumption relative to monograde natural gas-fueled engine oils.

 

Product Benefits:

 

  • Exhibits excellent thermal and oxidative stability
  • Provides excellent resistance to acidic corrosion
  • Offers exceptional anti-wear and extreme-pressure protection
