You might think that engine oils are all the same. In fact, oil quality varies greatly. Lower quality oil has a shorter working life and more quickly impacts your engine’s fuel consumption, erodes performance and reduces the lifecycle of the engine.
Using high-quality oil is genuinely better for your engine, as it will maximize engine life, control emissions and reduce the cost of maintenance. The correct oil will give you significant benefits as the engine will run more smoothly, last longer and deliver you a better return on your investment.
To address our customer’s needs, we’ve launched a new Perkins Diesel Engine Oil, the only oil formulated specifically to match the conditions in Perkins engines.
Oil’s key role is to lubricate the engine and remove heat. With increasing emissions standards and demands for power efficiency, engine oil needs to work harder than ever to protect your diesel engine. Ever more sophisticated engine design and demands for reduced emissions mean smaller working tolerances inside the engine, so the quality and performance of the oil become more important.
The oil also reduces engine wear by preventing the build-up of deposits and sludge. With lower-quality engine oils, the levels and quality of additives can be significantly lower, dispersant levels may mean ash and deposits may not be kept in suspension. These deposits can attach to pistons and rings, causing cylinder wear, resulting in reduced performance, increased fuel consumption and potentially increased emissions.
Perkins custom formulation
Perkins oil has been formulated specifically for the long operating life, and performance of Perkins engines. Resulting from more than 28 years of experience from across our wider business, thousands of hours in the field and many hundreds of hours testing.
This engine oil is comprised of a unique mix of additives, designed specifically to prevent the build-up of conditions which can impair the oil performance, reduce operating life and potentially damage engine components
We’ve created Perkins oil to give you unbeatable protection and unrivaled engine performance and the results have been proven in high-stress condition testing,” said Julian Wood, product marketing manager, service and maintenance products.
Made up of three base oils that deliver the right viscosity across the working temperature ranges, Perkins oil includes a combination of 12 beneficial additives, such as:
- Viscosity stabilizers to ensure a long and stable operating life
- Dispersants and detergents to prevent the build-up of sludge and ash
- Anti-wear agents and friction modifiers to ensure good lubrication and prevent wear
This custom formulation is specially designed to meet the needs of our hard-working off-highway and electrical power engines, Perkins recommends Perkins Diesel Engine Oil 15W-40 API CI-4 as the only oil to use in Perkins engines, EU Stage IIIA/U.S. EPA Tier 3 equivalent and below.
The formulation of Perkins oil is unique to Perkins. Available in India in India in 20 litre and 208 litre quantities, Perkins oil is now available from your local Perkins distributor in India.
