Delo’s 30,000 km oil drain interval helps heavy duty vehicles
Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC achieved new heights of product development and technology. Delo took a monumental step forward in the lubricant market by proving an oil drain interval of 30,000 kilometres providing Heavy Duty Diesel Engine vehicle owners with extended service intervals and a plethora of other benefits.
In 2020, Delo underwent a trial in Sri Lanka with reputed local fleet operators - Freight Link & Auto Ezone, carrying out bi-weekly tests on vehicles with single oil drain through an independent test lab in Singapore, whose results proved the 30,000km mileage on two test cycles.
Using ISOSYN technology, Delo, has utilised the expertise and experience to develop top tier products that combine premium base oils with high-performance additives to deliver protection to engine parts, granting Delo users performance advantage of 30,000 kilometres on single oil drain, extended engine protection, confidence, durability and savings a spokesman for the Company said.
This innovative technological advancement will grant businesses a stronghold in these uncertain times by enhancing savings potentially of up to 17% through maintenance, service and operational cost reductions, supporting corporate, small and medium sized fleet operators to overcome the difficult economic conditions that the country is currently facing.
This development will help increase availability, reliability and durability of vehicles for fleet operators, enabling them to operate vehicles on the road whilst minimizing service downtime and breakdowns, increasing the ability of engines to withstand damages and generate more income.
Furthermore, this development is expected to encourage sustainability through the extended drain intervals, which may then lead to reduced disposal of used oil and help provide vital support to promote environmental protection.
Najam Shamsuddin, MD and CEO of Chevron Lubricants Lanka PLC said, “We have always focused on providing our customers with the best products to protect their vehicles and thereby enable them to gain the maximum benefits.”
