Chevron Products Company Issues New Case Study Highlighting Performance of Delo® Engine Oil at ASARCO Mine

-- Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 Delivers 21,900 Hours of Life in MTU 4000 Engine--

SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of the Delo® brand of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, today released a case study highlighting the performance of Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 at the ASARCO Ray copper mine in Arizona.

ASARCO's Ray copper mine operates a fleet of 39 haul trucks, 21 of which are Liebherr T 282s. These 400-ton ultra-class trucks have 3600 horse power engines and operate 22 hours a day, seven days a week, in some of the South West's harshest conditions. Given the negative financial impact of equipment complications, ASARCO has implemented a preventative maintenance program that includes the use of Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 diesel engine oil.

After inspecting one of the facility's 20V MTU 4000 engines that had delivered 21,900 hours of service with 500 hour drain intervals, the engine components were found to be in "excellent conditions." The combination of the MTU engine, with good maintenance practices, and the use of Delo 400 Multigrade allowed ASARCO to increase engine life and achieve significant cost savings per engine per year.
