Diesel Engine Oils extend operating life, maintenance intervals.

Press Release Summary:

Diesel Engine Oils extend operating life, maintenance intervals.

Oct 27, 2016 - While promoting fuel economy, Blue Flame Synthetic Blend API FA-4 and CK-4 series keep diesel engines operating by reducing engine wear, preventing high temperature corrosion, and controlling abrasive soot contamination. These API-licensed products offer direct replacement for API CJ-4 diesel engine oil specification, come in lower viscosity grades, including API 15w-40, and deliver performance to meet needs of heavy-duty engines. Optimized oxidation resistance extends drain intervals.

Champion Oil to Launch Two New Diesel Engine Oils at SEMA

Press release date: Oct 25, 2016

Champion Oil, an industry leader in the development of synthetic motor oils, will launch next week at SEMA two new diesel engine oils. Champion’s Blue Flame Synthetic Blend API FA-4, & CK-4 series oils will be a direct replacement for the current API CJ-4 diesel engine oil specification.

Champion Blue Flame FA-4, & CK-4 oils will be offered in lower viscosity grades including an API 15w-40 that are designed to help maximize fuel economy with no compromise in durability. These new API licensed engine oils will have limited backwards compatibility and will be labeled as such.

Both engine oils are designed to provide industry-leading performance to meet the needs of the next generation of heavy-duty engines.  Increased power density, reduced oil volume and extended drain intervals place unique demands on engine oils to control oxidation by-products, sludge and deposits.  Due to higher shear stress and lower viscosity minimums for engine oils, only oils with the highest wear protection and viscosity stability can maximize the performance and life of advanced diesel engines

Champion Blue Flame FA-4 & CK-4 engine oils take oxidation resistance to an elevated level, allowing users to achieve longer drain intervals, reduce maintenance and downtime, and extend engine life.  Controlling oxidation, corrosive acids, sludge and varnish precursors allow for extended drains and minimized wear even under the most extreme conditions.

This new series of Champion engine oils will keep diesel engines going longer by reducing engine wear, preventing high temperature corrosion and controlling abrasive soot contamination, even while allowing for improved fuel economy and lower total cost of ownership.
