Next gen­er­a­tion

Valvo­line’s All Fleet PLUS E900 meets new test stan­dards of orig­i­nal en­gine man­u­fac­tur­ers.


CHANGES TO GLOBAL emis­sion stan­dards have re­sulted in en­gine man­u­fac­tur­ers re­quir­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of oils that can sur­vive for longer at higher tem­per­a­tures.

Orig­i­nal en­gine man­u­fac­turer ( OEM) test stan­dards are used to en­sure oil man­u­fac­tur­ers com­ply with th­ese new en­gine oil re­quire­ments.

Valvo­line’s All Fleet PLUS E900 has been tested to th­ese stan­dards with for­mal OEM ap­provals, to­gether with com­pre­hen­sive proven per­for­mance in the field to en­sure trou­ble-free op­er­a­tion of your equip­ment.

The next gen­er­a­tion of diesel en­gine oils have been de­signed to meet the lat­est spec­i­fi­ca­tion, in this case API CK-4, the stan­dard en­dorsed by the Amer­i­can Pe­tro­leum In­sti­tute (API).

While re­duc­ing costly ser­vic­ing is one of the key con­sid­er­a­tions for OEM’s, next-gen­er­a­tion oils are de­signed to per­form in higher tem­per­a­tures like those found in the lat­est low-emis­sion heavy-duty ve­hi­cles.

Ed Kopin­ski, Valvo­line tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor, says field trial pro­grams, of­ten con­ducted in con­junc­tion with fleet own­ers, are de­signed to eval­u­ate the per­for­mance of a lu­bri­cant such as Valvo­line All Fleet Plus E900. Field trial work is ex­ten­sive, con­ducted across the globe and un­der Aus­tralian con­di­tions, in­clud­ing light, heavy and road trains, be­fore it can be re­leased to mar­ket.

“We’re talk­ing about millions and millions of kilo­me­tres of testing be­fore we’re able to in­tro­duce new prod­ucts.

A lot of de­vel­op­ment work is done two years prior in terms of phas­ing a par­tic­u­lar lu­bri­cant into mar­ket,” he says.

“At Valvo­line we don’t look to only meet stan­dards when launch­ing new prod­ucts, fol­low­ing such ex­ten­sive field trial pe­ri­ods, we’re con­fi­dent this oil goes above and be­yond to help ex­tend the life of the en­gine.”

Valvo­line All Fleet Plus E900 car­ries for­mal ap­provals across var­i­ous man­u­fac­tur­ers such as Detroit, Mack, Volvo, Re­nault and Cum­mins.

Ac­cord­ing to Kopin­ski, the OEMs fo­cus on four key prop­er­ties: wear pro­tec­tion; aer­a­tion or foam­ing within the en­gine; ox­i­di­s­a­tion; and shear-sta­bil­ity.

“By com­bin­ing in­no­va­tion and proven perf-or­mance, Valvo­line hands-on ex­per­tise in diesel en­gines en­sure the end user has the lat­est lu­bri­cant tech­nol­ogy for their fleet,” he says.

In field tri­als, Valvo­line All Fleet Plus E900 was tested for wear pro­tec­tion, aer­a­tion or foam­ing within the en­gine, ox­i­di­s­a­tion and shear-sta­bil­ity. The prod­uct ex­ceeded the per­for­mance of pre­vi­ous grades even un­der high load sit­u­a­tions ex­pe­ri­enced in road-train ap­pli­ca­tions.

Valvo­line All Fleet Plus E900 does not in­ter­fere with after-treat­ment de­vices typ­i­cally found in new low-emis­sion en­gines (eg SCR, DPF etc).
