ConocoPhillips Co. announced today, Aug. 18, the introduction of Kendall SHP Diesel 5W40 Full Synthetic, which it describes as a premium-tier API CJ-4 diesel engine oil made from high-quality synthetic stocks and a state-of-the-art advanced additive technology for use by customers who want enhanced engine performance in equipment operating in a wide range of temperature and service conditions.

The new heavy-duty engine oil is designed for lubrication of modern low-emissions diesel engines with aftertreatment devices, and is back-serviceable for use in older engines specifying the previous categories of engine oils, says Reginald Dias, director of commercial products for Houston-based ConocoPhillips.

“We are pleased to offer our customers a new wide-grade full synthetic diesel engine oil that combines advantages of the synthetic stocks and performance of an advanced additive to deliver undiminished protection for heavy-duty engines operating in extreme applications that range from high to low in temperature and service,” says Dias.

Kendall SHP Diesel 5W40 Full Synthetic has the potential to improve the fuel economy relative to a 15W40 oil, benefiting customers through reduced fuel usage, Dias says. “As the performance requirements and market conditions elevate the demand for superior-quality heavy-duty engine oils, ConocoPhillips Company is dedicated to offering newer products that meet industry specifications while exceeding our customers’ needs,” he says.

Kendall SHP 5W40 Diesel Full Synthetic is formulated to provide excellent soot control, wear protection and low temperature pumpability for engines operating in extreme service conditions; the engine oil meets lubrication requirements of engines compliant with 2007 low-emissions regulations and meets heavy-duty engine oil specifications for Caterpillar, Cummins, Detroit Diesel, Mack and Volvo. The company says its unique features provide the following performance benefits:

  • Improved soot handling: Helps prevent oil thickening and reduces filter blockage and deposits;
  • Increased oxidation stability: Maintains oil quality by resisting oxidative breakdown;
  • Better low-temperature viscometrics: Ensures rapid oil flow for proper lubrication at low temperatures and prevents wear at startup;
  • Low lead corrosion: Prolongs bearing life by prevention of lead corrosion; and
  • Wear protection: Reduces wear on critical parts and extends equipment life.
  • Kendall SHP Diesel 5W40 Full Synthetic is the latest addition to the ConocoPhillips’ existing API CJ-4 heavy-duty engine oil line and is available now in bulk and drums.
