Chevron Products Company Issues New Case Study Highlighting Performance of Delo® Products at PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara Mines

-- Delo Oils and Coolants Deliver Over 18,600 Hours of Life in a Cat® 3516 Engine --

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 new case study highlighting the performance of Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 and Delo Extended Life Coolant at PT Newmont Nusa Tenggara (PTNNT) copper mines located on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa.

PTNNT operates a fleet of 111 Caterpillar® 793 Haul Trucks, which run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, under harsh mining conditions. The trucks are powered by Cat® 3516 engines and typically experience 500 hours oil drains and 12,000 coolants service cycles. PTNNT uses Delo 400 Multigrade SAE 15W-40 and Delo Extended Life Coolant to protect its engines. After a complete engine teardown and inspection of one of the Cat 3516 engines following 18,600+ hours of operation, PTNNT found the engine components in “pristine condition” with minimal wear.
