ConocoPhillips Lubricants Announces Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 Upgrade

ConocoPhillips Lubricants recently announced that Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 has been upgraded to meet the latest DANA SHAES 256 REV C specification for extended drain gear oils, according to Reginald Dias, director, commercial lubricants, ConocoPhillips Lubricants.

ConocoPhillips Lubricants, the fourth largest U.S. lubricants supplier, recently announced that Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 has been upgraded to meet the latest DANA SHAES 256 REV C specification for extended drain gear oils, according to Reginald Dias, director, commercial lubricants, ConocoPhillips Lubricants.

“This new upgrade helps us continue to equip our customers with the consistent, reliable performance they have come to expect from ConocoPhillips,” said Dias. “In addition to providing our customers with a premium product, the upgraded Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 offers improved equipment durability, less churning losses and fuel economy gains, particularly at low operating temperatures.”

Meeting the new specification, Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 is approved for 500,000-mile drain service in DANA heavy-duty final drive axles under OEM’s extended warranty. The SHAES 256 REV C specification replaced the previous SHAES 256 (formerly EATON PS 163) specification and sets a higher standard for gear oils used in DANA axles for 500,000 mile drain intervals. In the new specification, DANA has revised the shear stability, low temperature properties and deposits control requirements of the gear oil. DANA now recommends only 75W90 grade gear oil for 500,000 mile extended drain use.

Kendall SHP Synthetic Gear Lube 75W90 also meets the O-76 N (75W90) specification for 500,000 mile drain service in ArvinMeritor heavy-duty axles and Mack GO-J Plus (75W90) approval for extended drain service in the Mack axles.
