Railroad Oil/locomotive engine oil/ zinc free train engine oil/ railroad diesel engine oil is an optimized formulation containing lower sulfur levels and increased emission control systems for new as well as the older locomotive engine. A chlorine deprived composition means that there is a significant reduction in detrimental effects on the environment.
The grade produced here at DANA, DANA SAE 40 oil for railway locomotives complies with the entire international quality standard and 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 are required.
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 along with high-temperature stability and oxidation control which 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, which further translates into an extended engine life and better engine protection.
