Chevron launches synthetic lubricant for final drives and axles

The US based manufacturer of full range lubrication and coolant products Chevron Products Company has introduced Delo TorqForce Syn FD-1, a high-performance, fully synthetic lubricant designed for use in final drives and axles of large mining haul trucks and other support equipment. Delo TorqForce Syn FD-1 was designed to increase performance over conventional SAE 60 TO-4 and FD-1 products and formulated to deliver maximum system protection.

“We’re excited to introduce Delo TorqForce Syn FD-1 designed to maximize productivity and reliability of large mining haul trucks and support equipment. Chevron strives to provide lubricants with proven performance through rigorous testing for the mining industry. Results for Delo TorqForce Syn FD-1 showed excellent gear wear protection and very strong oxidation control with minimal varnish to extend service intervals from the standard 4,000 hours to 6,000 hours and well beyond,” said Jason Gerig, Chevron Lubricants Commercial Sector manager.

After Caterpillar announced its FD-1 specification for final drive axle lubricants under heavy load pressure, Chevron introduced Delo® TorqForce SAE 60, a mineral-based solution formulated to meet the FD-1 specification. Now, in response to many customer inquiries and after years of R&D, the company is introducing a synthetic version: Delo® TorqForce Syn FD-1. It is a premium, multigrade, full synthetic lubricant specifically designed for use in final drives, differentials and axles of modern Caterpillar off-road equipment, including mining trucks and dozers. The purpose of the FD-1 spec was to ensure that lubricants for today’s Caterpillar off-road equipment could handle heavier gear and bearing loads and higher temperatures than those operating under the older TO4 specification. Delo TorqForce Syn FD-1 meets and, in some cases, exceeds the performance requirements of the Caterpillar FD-1 specification.
