One of Europe’s leading manufacturers of off-highway lubricants has two new products designed to perform in the harshest of environments.
Morris Lubricants, a supplier partner of Barton Petroleum, has added the Terrain LS 80W-90 and the Terrain CT 10W-30 to its off-highway offering.
The oils have been made by Morris’ experts in close collaboration with Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to ensure that they exceed the very latest global standards.
Terrain LS 80W-90
The Terrain LS 80W-90 is a mineral oil based gear oil that has been formulated with a high level of extreme pressure additives and friction modifiers. These elements protect the critical mechanisms of limited slip differentials used in heavy off-highway and agricultural equipment.
The sophisticated oil will also protect against rust and corrosion and has a low foaming tendency. It has been designed to cope with shock loading in off-highway machines.
Adrian Hill, product manager, explained: “Shock loading occurs when one of the driven wheels loses traction and the differential locks, redistributing the drive equally.
“Standard API GL5 gear oils are unable to cope with this extreme condition and therefore it is necessary to use the correct limited slip differential oil to promote long component life.”
The Terrain LS 90W-90 can be used where SAE viscosity grades 80W-90, 85W-90 or 90 are specified, or in standard differentials, axles, reduction hubs, slewing gears and transfer boxes where an API GL5 80W-90 gear oil is required. It has proved popular in places such as New Zealand for mining machinery.
The product is ZF TE-ML 05C approved.
Terrain CT 10W-30
The Terrain CT 10W-30 has been developed for Caterpillar transmission systems. Formulated with high quality Group II base oils and additives, the oil provides the correct frictional characteristics required by Caterpillar in transmission and hydraulic systems.
The additive system also gives this oil improved temperature performance, superior resistance to oxidation, rust, corrosion and improved anti-foam properties. In addition this grade gas excellent extreme pressure and anti-wear characteristics ensuring maximum frictional material life in powershift transmissions.
Terrain CT grades also have outstanding wet brake performance, eliminating “squawk and chatter” and prolonging component life.
Adrian added: “We’re constantly striving to develop the next generation of products that not only meet, but far exceed, our clients’ expectations.”
Morris Lubricants is a British company that has been manufacturing lubricants in Shrewsbury since 1869. Over 140 years of development has seen the company grow to become one of Europe’s leading oil blenders and marketers, with a reputation for quality and service.
