Railroad Oil or locomotive or zinc free train engine oil or railroad diesel engine oil is an optimized formulation. It contains lower sulfur levels. It increased emission control systems for new as well as the older locomotive engine. Due to chlorine deprived composition, there is a significant reduction in detrimental effects on the environment.
The grade produced at DANA, SAE 40 oil for railway locomotives complies with the international quality standard. As a result, it has developed goodwill in the international market
The balanced detergent, dispersant, and anti-wear system provides superior control against soot, sludge, and wears which results in improved engine cleanliness, lower wear, and particulate emissions.
DANA SAE 40 locomotive engine oil can be effectively used for applications including railroad, marine, and stationary engines where zinc-free oils require.
Railroad oil provides proper lubrication for 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines, it can be effectively used irrespective of the engine is naturally aspirated or even a turbocharged unit.
Features of Railroad oil
The selection of proper diesel engine oil means increased fuel efficiency. It also adds cold start benefits.
The use of proper railroad diesel engine oil would provide excellent wear protection. Also, high-temperature stability and oxidation control are all desirable for longer engine life.
A zinc free composition is responsible for providing superior corrosion resistance for silver-bearing and other metals. It is the desired property because corrosion can prove to be really harmful in moist environments
The overall maintenance cost decreases due to lower oil consumption (increase in efficiency of the lubrication oil)
Since the DANA SAE 40 railroad oil boasts of excellent lubricating characteristics, it ensures that the engine remains clean for most of the working time. So, it can further translates into an extended engine life and better engine protection.

Applications of railroad oil
The SAE 40 Railroad diesel engine oil finds its application in the following scenarios –
- The Zinc-free Railroad oil finds its application in cases that require heavy-duty lubrication. Also, it is mainly recommended for use in diesel locomotive of Indian railways. Owing to its application in the Railroad industry (which is its primary application) it has been named the Railroad Diesel Engine oil.
- It is also used as a shunting locomotive in heavy-duty steel and cement plants.
- It can use effectively with a variety of engines including Railroad, marine, and stationary engines.
