HiTEC® 12204L is designed to deliver the key performance benefits required along with low treat rates, key OEM approvals and with broad base oil coverage.
Key Performance Benefits
Excellent Soot Handling
HiTEC® 12204L has advanced dispersant technology to deliver exceptional soot handling protection as demonstrated in the Mack T-11. Engines with EGR technology require soot handling protection in order to improve and extend engine life through better viscosity control and wear prevention.
Best In Class Wear Protection
HiTEC® 12204L demonstrates performance reserve delivering superior protection from engine wear.
Maintains Engine Power
HiTEC® 12204L has excellent control over deposits to maintain power over a longer oil drain interval.
Longer Oil Drains In Harsh Conditions
Sub optimal roads, loads and fuel quality combined with steep terrain and extreme weather conditions constitute harsh conditions. This often leads to short oil drain intervals - some as low as 16,000km/10,000 miles. The HiTEC® 12200 family of products have been field tested in harsh conditions to 50,000km/31,000 miles and demonstrate exceptional performance.
The recommended treat rate for HiTEC® 12204L is 14.2% wt. HiTEC ®12204L meets the requirements of API CI-4 Plus SAE 15W-40 in a range of base stocks.
