Maintaining a fleet of high-mileage vehicles requires a lot of precision, and some help from premium oil. Using a premium-quality engine oil can help keep your fleet on the road for longer and avoid unnecessary downtime.
While using a high-quality diesel engine oil may feel like an investment, it pays off by standing up better to drastic thermal changes, oxidation and contamination without sacrificing oil quality. Engines operate under intense heat and pressure, which leads to a higher risk of contamination. Using a premium synthetic oil like Cenex® Maxtron® Enviro-EDGE® or Maxtron DEO will help avoid breakdowns in your fleet and provide a significant return on investment down the road.
Better than ever, these synthetic heavy-duty diesel engine oils fight shearing and viscosity loss thanks to a new industry-leading viscosity modifier called EnduroVis™. Because of its star shape – as opposed to a traditional linear coil-shaped viscosity modifier – EnduroVis’ radial form keeps the elements of the balanced additive package intact as the oil moves through the engine. Enhanced with EnduroVis, Maxtron Enviro-EDGE and Maxtron DEO are up to seven times more shear stable than a traditional linear coil-shaped viscosity modifier, ensuring your rig is protected and stays on the road longer.
Premium engine oil offers advanced benefits to reduce wear on your engine in addition to providing a return on investment. It can also impact the efficiency of your engine, and the balanced additive technology of Maxtron synthetic diesel engine oils plays an important role in your machine. Read on for the benefits of premium diesel engine oil.
Increase the efficiency of your engine
Fuel isn’t the sole factor of engine efficiency. Engines operate as a system, and the way all parts of the system work together determine optimum performance. Massive friction can be generated within an engine through the fuel combustion process. When friction occurs, the engine then needs to work overtime with each cycle, which causes the engine to burn through more fuel than usual. Typical fleet vehicles running above 1,500 RPM can see the effect of friction compound quickly.
Synthetic lubricants are your engine’s best defense against excessive friction. The base oil at its foundation is so finely distilled that its molecules become uniform. This stabilizes the fluid against the intense heat and pressure of the combustion process, reducing friction by cooling key components and keeping them protected.
Balanced additive technology package
Engines are only as effective as they are clean. Oil impurities can wear on moving parts and lead to expensive repairs. Fortunately, Maxtron diesel engine oils contain a balanced additive package to protect engines against deposit buildup and sludge caused by thermal oxidation, which helps to avoid downtime and unforeseen costs.
- Detergents: Natural acids form as a byproduct of combustion every time an engine is running. Without treatment, these acids can result in the corrosion of key components. With detergents, these harmful acids are neutralized before they’re able to cause pricey issues.
- Dispersants: Excessive soot is another threat to equipment. Dispersants suspend soot within the oil itself, keeping it away from key engine components. Paired with detergents, dispersants keep engines clean and running at peak performance.
Protect your rigs with a LubeScan® Used Oil Analysis
A premium-quality engine oils is a huge help to keep engines clean and running at optimum performance. However, as oil moves through the engine, it picks up traces of other contents that might be inside. A LubeScan® Used Oil Analysis can be extremely helpful to uncover clues to larger issues before they become catastrophic.
Getting an oil analysis every 15,000 miles is a good rule of thumb, but an analysis should be done no less than every time you get your oil drained. LubeScan Used Oil Analysis kits can be purchased from your local Cenex distributor, and only a small sample of the used engine oil is needed. Once the sample has been tested, an analysis report will let you know if your oil sample is contaminated with anything like metal, coolant or fuel which could cause potential problems in your machine.
