Warren Oil Steps Out and Up with the First API Licensed SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic PCMO

Warren Oil Company, Inc., one of North American's largest independent lubricant manufacturers, is pleased to announce its LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil is the first API approved 0W-16 passenger car motor oil in the market. Expanding on its diverse portfolio of automotive engine oils, Warren's LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil was developed to meet the needs of the growing number of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), and consumers requiring ultra-low viscosity (ULV) passenger car motor oil.

For those unfamiliar with motor oil grades, close to 52% of the passenger car motor oils currently in use are SAE 5W-30 grade products. Second and third are 5W-20 and 10W-30, with an estimated 23 and 12%, market share, respectively. Whereas 5W-30 and 10W-30 have been the workhorse motor oils for several decades, times are changing. In today's world, although engine durability remains the primary concerns, fuel economy and other issues are driving motor oil demand towards lower viscosity grades (e.g. 5W-20, 0W-20, 0W-16). These products are designed to offer the best of both worlds (fuel economy and engine protection).

Irvin Warren, Chief Executive Officer and President of Warren Oil, Headquartered in Dunn, NC, says, "For these reasons, we made the decision to Step Up and Out with the first API licensed SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil." Although demand for this viscosity grade is currently limited in the United States, Mr. Warren adds "The trend towards lighter viscosity motor oils that offer meaningful increases in fuel economy without compromising engine durability is clear. We anticipate increasing demand for this grade and we are pleased to announce that LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil is the first API approved 0W-16 in the US market."

Adding to this, Chris Spell, Corporate VP of Marketing at Warren Oil says, "Warren Oil's success in the lubricants business is, in part, based on anticipating, planning for, and developing lubricants to assure we are ahead of the curve in meeting both current and emerging market needs, at a competitive price." For these reasons, Spell says, "We made the decision to take a leadership role with the introduction of LubriGold SAE 0W-16 Full Synthetic Motor Oil." In addition to LubriGold SAE 0W-16, Spell adds "Warren Oil's product portfolio includes a number of other quality consumer, commercial and industrial lubricants."

Chevron Debuts ISOCLEAN 
 Certified Lubricants and Services, 
the Industry's First National Program Focused on Controlling Particle Contamination
Chevron Debuts ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants and Services,
the Industry's First National Program Focused on Controlling Particle Contamination
Particle contamination is the number one cause of lubricant related failure in equipment.
Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, today announced the launch of its ISOCLEAN Program, a first of its kind national program that offers a solution to particle contamination through products and in-plant services designed to assist customers in maximizing the life of their equipment by meeting stringent quality control standards set by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Chevron's ISOCLEAN program includes ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants, which have been certified to meet the fluid ISO Cleanliness requirements of OEMs, and ISOCLEAN Services, which are in-plant services designed to clean up and manage contamination of in-service lubricants and operating systems. Both offerings are dependent on each other and help to reduce wear, decrease unscheduled downtime and extend the life of equipment.
Chevron's ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants meet a specific ISO Cleanliness code at the point of delivery, which represents the most stringent cleanliness standards and specifications for lubricants placed in equipment that are required by several leading OEMs. An important first step in controlling lubricant contamination is starting with a certified lubricant. These products help reduce the expense and manpower required by end customers to pre-filter non-certified lubricants to meet OEM requirements.
ISOCLEAN Services are performed by a national certified network of service providers at the plant location.  Controlling particle contamination for in-service equipment is another critical element in maintaining efficient operation. The portfolio of services performed may include:
  • Fluid purification and dehydration
  • Varnish removal and mitigation
  • High velocity flushing
  • Reservoir and tank cleaning
  • Condition monitoring and system audits
  • Fluid handling consultation
Chevron began rolling out its ISOCLEAN program in early 2015 and has developed a national network of ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricant Marketers. The program has seen such dramatic success that it will begin to expand internationally in 2016. The company's goal is to significantly increase the number of certified marketers throughout many regions.
"No other company is as dedicated to providing solutions for lubricant particle contamination as Chevron," said Doug Hinzie, VP Americas Lubricants at Chevron. "Our ISOCLEAN Program with certified lubricants and services is proof that we are investing heavily in this crucial industry need. In response to the request for a turnkey solution from customers and OEMs, we developed this comprehensive national program because we know how important it is to provide a consistent solution which is certified and backed by Chevron, and delivered wherever our customers need it."
The number one cause of lubricant-related failures in equipment is contaminant particles - most of which are so small that they are unable to be seen by the naked eye. Controlling fluid contamination early in the process can significantly reduce the costs to remove it later, which is a direct saving that goes to the bottom line of our customers.
"It doesn't matter if you are in mining, construction or own a fleet of trash trucks, it is all about lubricants and high pressure lubricants - the cleaner that oil is the longer it is going to last, because downtime is a killer," said Freddie Dodge, expert miner and star of "Gold Rush" on the Discovery Channel. "You get peace of mind with ISOCLEAN lubricant system because every gallon you use you get a certificate that it is free of harmful contaminants."
Chevron offers more than 50 ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants for critical equipment components from hydraulics to gear oils to synthetics for a variety of industries: agriculture, construction, manufacturing, mining, petrochemical refining, power generation, and waste hauling. ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants give customers the opportunity to significantly maximize equipment component life: by 2 to 4 times in most cases.
These lubricants have undergone one of the most rigorous testing processes in the industry to verify that the lubricants performance is not compromised, which is exclusively done at the Chevron Research and Technology Center.  All products delivered by ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricant Marketers meet the required certification process, which includes multiple tests, and follows stringent delivery processes to verify that the products meet specification on each delivery.
