Chevron's Delo brand of engine oils, lubricants and coolants, announced the latest member of its product family, Delo Heavy Duty EP.
Formulated with Chevron ISOSYN base stocks, these greases are ideal for heavy to severe duty on- and off-highway construction and maintenance vehicles.

"Although our current Delo Greases EP are ideal for most applications in the trucking market, there are more demanding service environments that require a heavier duty grease," said John Geyer, global industrial channel specialist, Chevron Products Company. "In these 'severe service' environments, our new Delo Heavy Duty EP greases are the ideal fit. Delo Greases EP and Delo Heavy Duty EP greases are fully compatible, so there are no issues when switching between the two products. With the introduction of our new grease, we've created a comprehensive Delo product offering that meets the needs of our most demanding customers."

Delo Heavy Duty EP greases display outstanding water washout and spray-off resistance properties in wet, off-road environments and offer shock load extreme pressure (EP) protection. These properties make the product ideal for use with pins and bushings on dump beds, buckets, loaders, shovels and continuous miners, shaker screens, crushers and conveyors.

Two versions of the new grease; Moly 3% EP and Moly 5% EP are available. These greases will work in a wide range of applications where 3% and 5% molybdenum content is required to meet OEM warranty specification requirements.

The additive technology of these products helps them in adhering to metal surfaces found in these demanding heavy duty environments while helping to protect the machine's vital components from wear, rust and corrosion.

All three Delo Heavy Duty EP greases come in multiple grades and will be available across North American in the second quarter of 2008. These greases meet the requirements of the Mack MG-C grease specification and also meet Caterpillar recommendations for greases containing 3% and 5% molybdenum disulfide.
