Over the last few months the team at Morris Lubricants have been reviewing its product structure. The decision has been made that two of the company’s heavy duty diesel engine oils are to be superseded. Both Versimax HD6 and Versimax HD7 are to be superseded by Versimax HD12 and Versimax HD14 respectively.
To explain this change in more detail is Automotive Product Manager Adrian Hill: “In order to address the increasing level of biofuel used in heavy dusty diesel engines, new engine oil specifications have been relased to help cope with its effects should it get down into the sump.
The main one is API CK-4, which is especially effective at sustaining emission control system durability where particulate filters and other advanced after-treatment systems are used. API CK-4 is fully backward compatible and can be used in all API CJ-4 and related applications, Many of the OEM specifications have been upgraded in the same way: For example Volvo VDS4 has been upgraded to Volvo VDS 4.5. Again this is backward compatible. As such, Versimax HD12 15W-40 will replaced Versimax HD6 15W-40 in all applications and Versimax HD14 10W-30 will repalce Versimax HD7 10W-30. This will help reduce inventories and eliminate the possibility of misapplication where newer engine deisgns require this latest level or protection.”
STOCKS OF BOTH VERSIMAX HD6 & HD7 ARE ALMOST DEPLETED WHEN THEY ARE GONE THEY WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE.
VERISMAX HD12 (ACK005, ACK025 & ACK205) WILL REPLACE VERSIMAX HD6 (UPL)
VERIMAX HD14 (VMF025 & VMF205) WILL REPLACE VERSIMAX HD7 (ECN)
