PRESS RELEASE: To meet the severe conditions of mining and construction operations, Total's product development team conducted intensive research and field tests in order to achieve the targeted performance, extended service capability, and enhanced equipment durability and protection. The new range also meets the sulphated ash, phosphorus and sulphur (APS) restrictions applied by engine manufacturers, and helps extend diesel particulate filter service life.
TOTAL RUBIA WORKS 3000 FE 5W-30 is an ACEA E6 product, formulated with synthetic base stocks to achieve the stringent performance requirements of German OEMs. TOTAL RUBIA WORKS 3000 is available in an SAE 5W-30 viscosity grade, inherently provides adequate high-temperature and high-shear-rate viscosity protection. The company said the new oil, suitable for most Euro Stage IV or US EPA Tier 4 final machinery engines, can increase fuel savings by up to 1.47% compared to standard SAE 15W-40 lubricants.
TOTAL RUBIA WORKS 4000 range is formulated based on the latest API CK-4 performance classification and has been specifically developed to address the severe duty operating conditions found in off-highway applications. The range consists of three premium heavy-duty engine oils - TOTAL RUBIA WORKS 4000 15W-40, FE 10W-30 and 10W-40.
These products were specially made for the most recent engines of the world's leading construction and mining manufacturers. Their properties make them much more temperature resistant than the ACEA E9 minimum level; for example, they keep engines up to 70% cleaner than most oils in the market.
