Why you should consider using Cenex Diesel Engine Oils?

August 5, 2020

The diesel engine is an invention that has shaped the world today as we know it. Consider Rudolf Diesel, a German inventor, who is widely recognized for his invention of the compression ignition/internal combustion engine in the late 1800s. Or Alexander Winton, a Scottish-American Inventor, who developed and sold a semi-trailer truck to deliver his automobiles. His success led him to improve the diesel engine, producing his first in 1913. Then there is Henry Ford, who revolutionized the transportation industry in America by developing the assembly-line method of production, allowing for the mass production of automobiles. We certainly have come a long way when it comes to the truck and diesel engine efficiencies. So how do we keep moving forward when it comes to engine performance and longevity?

Now more than ever, your diesel engine needs to be properly cared for to continue to get the performance you want out of your engine and the productivity out of your truck fleet or operation. Cenex is on the cutting edge of technology and has developed engine oils that provide the proper lubrication and protection against the toughest demands you place on your engines. Plus, it offers the features that are needed for today's newer equipment. I believe it is important to understand the differences between Cenex's diesel engine oils and how Central Valley Ag can help you determine which diesel engine oil is right for your operation.

One common misconception about diesel engine oils is that they are all made the same. They are not. Different formulations offer different features, which is why Cenex offers three types of diesel engine oils to fit your operation and budget while providing your engines with the exceptional protection they need to keep performing at the highest level. Cenex's flagship product is Maxtron Enviro-Edge. Maxtron Enviro-Edge is an advanced, full-synthetic 5W-40, CK-4/SN diesel engine oil, engineered for optimal fuel economy, wide temperature range performance, and superior protection of all Tier IV and newer-model year, low-emission engines, and exhaust after-treatment systems. The unique formulation of this product allows for it to be backward compatible and provides additional protection for older engines. In addition to these benefits, Maxtron Enviro-Edge boasts EnduroVis, an industry-leading 5 SSI advanced, radial polymer that provides best-in-class shear stability and protection against viscosity loss due to mechanical and chemical stress in heavy-duty, diesel engines. Because of the EnduroVis technology, you can expect engines to be cleaner from deposit build-up, which can result in a 1.2% improved fuel economy. The performance of Maxtron Enviro-Edge is backed-up by extensive field testing and has proven to provide longer engine life for equipment under severe service and extreme temperature conditions. Maxtron Enviro-Edge is an excellent choice for trucking fleets, contractors, and agriculture operations looking for extended oil drain intervals and increased fuel economy.

Maxtron DEO is Cenex's synthetic blend CK-4/SN diesel engine oil. It can be found in SAE grades of 15W-40 and 10W-30. Like Maxtron Enviro-Edge, Maxtron DEO uses the EnduroVis polymer to protect your engines from viscosity loss while adding shear stability properties to the oil. Maxtron DEO is engineered to protect all Tier IV and low-emission engines and their exhaust after-treatment systems. This formulation is designed to provide additional protection for older engines as well. Maxtron DEO has also undergone thousands of hours of engine testing and millions of miles of field testing to give superior backward-compatible and unsurpassed, engine protection. Another feature of Maxtron DEO is that it has reserve protection built into the oil. This reserve capacity suspends additional soot, neutralizes additional acids, and reduces wear for longer engine life. Maxtron DEO is an excellent choice for trucking fleets with newer, low-emission compliant engines, Agriculture or Construction operations which operate under heavily loaded conditions, or any stationary, irrigation, or standby generators. Maxtron DEO is also compatible with most Ag OEMs including John Deere, Case IH, and AGCO.

The third type of engine oil Cenex has to offer is Superlube TMS Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oil. It is a synthetic blend diesel engine oil that meets the latest API service category CK-4, is backward compatible, and comes in SAE grades of 15W-40 and 10W-30. Superlube TMS engine oils are engineered for Tier IV and newer diesel engines with advanced emission control systems. Extensive field testing has proven by using para-synthetic base stocks with Cenex's additive chemistry. Superlube TMS improves engine protection from soot, deposits, varnish, wear, and acid accumulation, viscosity shear loss, and oil consumption, as well as excellent operability in extreme temperature environments. Superlube TMS is an excellent choice for construction or agriculture operations looking for engine oil that performs well in severe conditions or extreme temperature environments. It's also a good choice for truck fleets with new, low-emission compliant engines or older engines, stationary diesel engines, and most Agriculture OEMs. 

Overall, there are many benefits to choosing the right engine oil for your operation. By choosing the right engine oil and using our LubeScan oil analysis to track your oil life, you can increase your operation's productivity and increase the performance of your equipment. As the diesel engine has helped to power the world for the last century, Central Valley Ag is committed to offering you superior Cenex products to keep you moving forward in the next.
