Petro-Canada Lubricants releases PRODURO TO-4+ UHP fluid to boost equipment productivity

Petro-Canada Lubricants, an HF Sinclair brand, has launched PRODURO™ TO-4+ UHP, a multi-purpose synthetic all-season transmission, hydraulic, drive line and wet brake fluid for heavy-duty mobile equipment that, the company says, increases equipment productivity and decreases operating costs.

Developed to improve the performance of mining and construction equipment operating in extreme conditions, PRODURO TO-4+ UHP maximises durability and equipment protection at elevated system temperatures and in severe operating conditions, it says.

Offering improvement in High Temperature High Shear and in-service viscosity, as well as the potential to safely extend oil drain intervals, PRODURO TO-4+ UHP can deliver significant cost savings for equipment operators, Petro-Canada Lubricants claims.

During a more than two-year long customer trial, the fluid demonstrated the ability to meet the requirements of the Caterpillar TO-4 specification, increase equipment life by up to 6% and deliver significant cost savings based on 25 units for a large Canadian mine operating across two sites, according to the company.

The advanced fluid can also eliminate seasonal change-outs for hydraulics, wet brakes, drive trains and transmissions without compromising the lubricant performance or equipment wear. Due to the fluid’s ability to prolong equipment life, PRODURO TO-4+ UHP can also help support a mining operation’s sustainability goals, the company says.

Sharon Perichak, Segment Marketing Manager for Mining at Petro-Canada Lubricants, said: “PRODURO TO-4+ UHP is a game changer. Working closely with our trial partner, we developed this fluid to extend transmission life and hours of service while reducing running costs. For years we have been supporting mining operators and equipment owners to overcome their lubricant challenges and optimise equipment performance. This ethos and collaborative approach has been at the forefront of the innovation and development behind PRODURO TO-4+ UHP and we are delighted to offer equipment operators the step-change in protection the transmission fluid delivers.”

HollyFrontier division set to showcase Petro-Canada Lubricants offering at MINExpo

“Delivering superior protection to help make mining operations more efficient, Petro-Canada Lubricants products reduce unplanned downtime and improve equipment reliability,” the company says.

Showcased at MINExpo will be innovative grease PEERLESS™ 3 Moly 322, which is formulated for the protection of low speed, severe heavy-duty applications where high temperatures and heavy loads are common, and wear protection is critical. Providing protection for pins, joints, bushings and bearings, PEERLESS 3 Moly 322 can extend component life on mining equipment operating in wet conditions, the company claims.

Visitors to the Petro-Canada Lubricants booth will also be able to access information regarding the GREASE-N-GO automatic lubricator.
