ConocoPhillips Lubricants, the fourth largest U.S. lubricants supplier, announced the introduction of Triton Synthetic Transoil 50, which is specifically formulated to meet the new Eaton Roadranger PS-164 Rev 7 specification.
The new transmission oil is recommended for use in manual transmissions of heavy-duty trucks operating in a variety of environments. Triton Synthetic Transoil 50 will be available to ConocoPhillips Lubricants customers who buy products under the Conoco, Phillips 66 and 76 Lubricants brands, according to Reginald Dias, director, commercial lubricants, ConocoPhillips Lubricants.
PS-164 Rev 7, the new Eaton manual transmission lubricant specification, replaces the previous specifications and sets a higher performance standard for oils used for 500,000-mile drain service in Eaton transmissions under extended warranty. This upgrade was driven by the OEM’s need to enhance gear pitting protection, reduce wear, increase oil oxidation stability and provide better component cleanliness in its equipment. Eaton specifies use of this upgraded engine oil in its new transmissions and also in older transmissions for extended warranty coverage. Triton Synthetic Transoil 50 provides the following benefits relative to the older generation products:
• Increased protection against pitting and wear
• Improved thermal stability and component cleanliness
• Capability to reduce operating temperature in the transmission
