Modern trucks use new technologies to make as much as 30% higher torque, but that also brings higher engine temperatures and pressures. This can lead to accelerated oxidation and oil thickening, increased build-up of deposits, and rapid depletion of the oil’s acid-controlling reserves. All of which pushes the oil closer to breakdown and reduces useful oil life.
Castrol has developed VECTON with new System Pro Technology™, which has an extra performance reserve that fights oil breakdown by helping to control oxidation, reduce deposits, neutralise harmful acids and also adapt to higher temperatures, maintaining viscosity. That means longer useful oil life, giving you confidence in your maximum drain interval.
The harshness of increased torque accompanied by increasing temperatures and pressures can lead to the following accelerated operating conditions:
High temperatures can accelerate the rate of oxidation and oil thickening. This reduces the fl ow to vital engine parts.
System Pro Technology™ combats oxidation and oil thickening to help protect your engine from heat damage.
An increase in build-up of deposits can reduce effi ciency and increase blow-by.
System Pro Technology™ controls these harmful deposits by helping to keep pistons clean.
The rapid depletion of the oil’s acid-controlling reserves can leave surfaces vulnerable to corrosive wear.
System Pro Technology™ protects surfaces from corrosive wear by helping to neutralise acids.
