Chevron Oronite announced last Tuesday it has introduced OLOA® 61530, an SAE 5W-30 top-tier high and low HTHS heavy-duty additive package suitable for on-road and off-road applications.
“Heavy-duty engine design has evolved significantly over the last two decades and with that, the SAE 5W-30 market is growing,” said Teri Crosby, global automotive engine oil manager, Chevron Oronite. “Oronite has developed a new technological platform to help address these evolving needs.”
"Equipment operators strive to reduce their total cost of ownership (TCO), which is influenced by factors such as fuel economy, maintenance intervals, and equipment durability. At the same time, there are various regulatory requirements which require exhaust gas after-treatment systems, as well as operating conditions that place higher demands on engine oil. Automotive lubricants play a major role in all of these areas."
“Changes in automotive lubricants are primarily driven by performance needs and regulations,” says Marta Sabater Ferret, product line manager, Automotive Engine Oil, Europe, Africa, Middle East, Chevron Oronite. “These increasingly demanding market and regulatory conditions lead to a constant evolution of engines and after-treatment systems, and automotive lubricants must continue to keep pace.”
OLOA 61530 is a high-performance additive package which helps maximize fuel economy, as demonstrated in the Daimler 501LA fuel economy test, as well as delivering exceptional wear and oxidation control to assist with durability and extended drain intervals. OLOA 61530 performance has been proven in a series of industry bench and engine tests as well as real-world field tests. Based on these results, automotive lubricants formulated with OLOA 61530 can help equipment operators reduce TCO, says Oronite.
A full Group III formulation, blended with the globally available enhanced PARATONE® 24EX viscosity modifier, this optimized and flexible solution also has broad claims coverage which can help simplify logistics, according to Oronite.
