ConocoPhillips Lubricants says its newly introduced Triton Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 and 80W140 is certified to meet the latest Dana SHAES 256 REV C specification for extended-drain gear oils.
The new lube will replace the following ConocoPhillips products: 76 Triton Syn Lube EP 75W90 and 80W140;
Conoco Syncon HP Synthetic Gear Oil 75W90 and 80W140; and Phillips 66 Philguard Synthetic Gear Oil 75W90. Existing branded products are thus now integrated in a single offering, the company says, which will minimize product complexity.
Meeting the new specification, Triton Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 is approved for 500,000-mile drain service in Dana heavy-duty final drive axles under OEM’s extended warranty. The SHAES 256 REV C spec replaces the previous SHAES 256 (formerly Eaton PS 163) spec and sets a higher standard for gear oils used in 500,000-mile drains. In the new specification, there are revisions to shear stability, low-temperature properties, and deposits control requirements of the gear oil. Dana now recommends only 75W90 grade gear oil for 500,000-mile extended drains.
Triton Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 and 80W140 also meet O-76 N (75W90) and O-76B (80W140) for 500,000-mile drain service in ArvinMeritor heavy-duty axles. It also meets Mack GO-J Plus (75W90) approval for extended-drain service in Mack axles.
