“The oil and gas industry in Malaysia produces a mix of low and high sulphur diesel fuel which ranges between 15 and 5000ppm. The introduction of the Caltex Delo ® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 is proof of our commitment and goal to providing customers with ground-breaking products which not only boost performance but reduce operating costs as well, while keeping their diesel equipment operating reliably,” said Lennard Kwek, Asia Pacific Marketing Manager, Chevron Lubricants.

Delo’s industry-leading lubricants have logged in 2.4 million kilometres and countless hours offering superior protection to diesel engine parts, allowing vehicles and equipment to operate smoothly. Caltex Delo® 400 MGX has been thoroughly field tested in trucks using up to 5000ppm diesel fuel sulfur levels to show its performance capability in neutralising harmful acids while at the same time retaining its alkalinity in extended-drain operations in both high- and low-sulphur diesel fuel environments.

“Many customers serving in the heavy equipment industry are facing challenging situations including exposure towards excessive occupational heat owning fleet of variant ages operating in both high- and ultra-low sulphur environments. The introduction of Caltex Delo® 400 MGX addresses these issues, while adhering to the latest American Petroleum Institute (API) specification as well as many American and European Original Equipment Manufacturers’ (OEM) approvals. Furthermore, one of the advantages offered to customers is the synthetic-like performance at the cost of mineral products, which significantly reduces the costs of premium lubrication costs,” said Asim Khan, Area Business Manager, Cluster Asia Pacific, Chevron Lubricants.

Chevron uses ISOSYN® Technology to formulate its top-tier Delo® products, combining premium base oils with high performance additives with the company’s formulation expertise to provide excellent protection for diesel engine parts – at a competitive value. This new advanced formula Caltex Delo® 400 MGX SAE 15W-40 delivers excellent soot dispersancy, as well as wear protection and sludge control to guard against loss of engine life and help reduce oil consumption.

Delo® with ISOSYN® helps to extend service protection and maximise engine durability as well as operating costs.
