Valvoline UltraMax is for heavy-duty diesel equipment

Valvoline's UltraMax product line has two new offerings: UltraMax Heavy Duty Engine Oil SAE 10W-40, which offers high temperature film thickness and low temperature pumpability for extended wear protection; and UltraMax Diesel Fuel Injector Cleaner, which cleans harmful deposits from the entire fuel injection system.

Valvoline, a brand of Ashland Inc., has expanded its UltraMax product line with two new offerings formulated for superior performance and durability of heavy-duty equipment. This adds to the lineup of transmission fluids and high-performance hydraulic oils launched in March for off-highway equipment, the company said.

For the heavy-duty diesel market, new UltraMax Heavy Duty Engine Oil SAE 10W-40 is a full synthetic Valvoline formulation that exceeds the highest performance requirements of all major U.S. and European engine makers and industry bodies, according to the company. It will outprotect, outperform and provide better cost containment by surpassing OEM standards for combating wear, deposit formation, oxidation and corrosion. Valvoline said the oil offers excellent high temperature film thickness and low temperature pumpability for extended wear protection under severe loading conditions. It achieves outstanding performance across a wide range of U.S. and European, EGR and SCR engine tests, the company added.

A companion new product, Valvoline UltraMax Diesel Fuel Injector Cleaner, is Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (USLD) compliant. Designed for use in trucks, city buses, off-road machines, specialty vehicles and other equipment, it can be used as a one-shot, in-tank treatment. UltraMax cleans harmful deposits from the entire fuel injection system. Contributing to fuel cost savings as well as lower maintenance, the cleaner provides outstanding deposit removal across a wide range of diesel injector types and is also effective when using B10 bio-diesel fuel. For added convenience, the product can be used as an in-tank cleanup product or can be added to bulk fuel to maintain efficient performance of an entire fleet, Valvoline added.
