Chevron Introduces Marine Lubricant For Low Sulfur Fuels

Posted on September 23, 2009

Chevron’s Delo brand of engine oils, lubricants and coolants has introduced the newest member of its product family, Delo 710 LE (Low Emissions) SAE 20W-40 –designed with tier-four engine compliance in mind. Chevron Delo 710 LE is a premium diesel engine oil for use in EMD and GE engines. The lubricant is specifically formulated for use with Low Sulfur Diesel (LSD) and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuels and new low emission engines.

Chevron Delo 710 LE employs newly developed dispersants, detergents and oxidation inhibitors to provide outstanding oil life and reduced ash content. In fact, the advanced additive technology found in Delo 710 LE cuts ash levels in half – over previous generation Delo 6170 CFO – significantly reducing emissions. These features make Delo 710 LE an excellent lubricant for engines using LSD and ULSD fuels with or without exhaust after-treatment equipment.

“Like many industries, the marine market is in the process of changing to address emissions issues,” said Tom Keirnes, marine account manager, Chevron Global Lubricants. “In this change, Chevron saw an opportunity to deliver a new marine diesel engine oil formulated for new, lower sulfur fuels. We also looked toward the future in an effort to make sure Delo 710 LE would work with the new engine technologies and exhaust after treatment systems that are on the horizon. The result is a product that reduces emissions, provides enhanced protection against wear and lowers oil consumption. Delo 710 LE gives our customers an oil that provides bottom line impact while positioning them for the future.”

Chevron Delo 710 LE protects cylinders, pistons, rings and bearings against wear and corrosion, resulting in longer service life and reduced maintenance costs. The SAE 20W-40 lubricant can also reduce oil consumption by 15-20%* compared to single-grade oils, lowering operating costs. Delo 710 LE is formulated with ISOSYN® Technology. ISOSYN Technology combines highly refined base oils with advanced additives to create products that rival synthetic lubricants in critical performance tests.
