PETRO-CANADA has launched the first Canadian-made final dive and axle oil that meets CATERPILLAR’s new stringent requirements in severe duty applications. Produro FD-1 60 replaces Cat FDAO and offers improved performance by doubling drain intervals to 4,000 from 2,000 hours in Cat off-highway truck final dive and rear axles. Petro-Can claims it will extend component life with improved extreme-pressure performance, better performance at both high and low temperatures, improved rust and corrosion protection, and the reduction or elimination of foaming.
Produro FD160 is suitable for use in Cat off-highway mining, construction and forestry vehicles. It is intended for use in the differentials and final drive of tractors and trucks or the final drives of most large track-type tractors, pipelayers and track skidders that have steel tracks and elevated final drives.
Produro FD-1 60 is made using the patented HT purity process, which results in 99.9% pure, crystal-clear base oils, the purest in the world. By removing impurities that can hinder the performance of conventional oils, Petro-Canada’s base oil retains its "fresh oil" properties longer.
