Total Rubia: a Superior Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oil Line
DEVELOPED FOR THE HEAVY DUTY MARKET
The right engine oil is what drives your truck, bus or fleet. The wrong choice can cause premature engine wear, reduced fuel economy, more downtime, or even mechanical failure. Fortunately, TOTAL has been successful in the creation of Rubia TIR 7900 15W-40 – a premium lubricant that not only exceeds API CJ-4 standards, but a lubricant that is also backwards compatible. This advancement has come from TOTAL’s commitment to bringing ease to maintenance management and to meeting the needs of most applications.
Developed to exceed the latest and most stringent API, ACEA and OEM requirements, it is recommended for on-and off-highway diesel-powered equipment and is specially formulated using TOTAL’s Low SAPS Technology to provide optimum performance – even under severe operating conditions. Rubia TIR 7900 is ideal for transportation and off-highway equipment such as long-and short-haul delivery trucks, farm tractors, construction equipment and other heavy-duty vehicles.
THE API EVOLUTION AND RUBIA
Through the introduction of Rubia TIR 7900 15W-40, TOTAL has been successful in the creation of a lubricant that not only exceeds API CJ-4 standards, but a lubricant that is also backwards compatible. This advancement has come fromTOTAL’s commitment to bringing ease to maintenance management and to meeting the needs of most applications.
THE EMISSIONS CHALLENGE AND TOTAL
Since 2007 (and on), the EPA has mandated that all on-highway diesel engines meet the following reductions in exhaust emissions: 90% for Particulate Matter (PM) and 50% for Nitrous Oxide (NOx).
As mandates have changed, engine and truck manufacturers have had to make numerous changes to meet the new emission requirements. This has led to lubricant manufacturers also being forced to adapt, mainly in the development of low SAPS* oil as defined by the latest CJ-4 specification. The reason being that using oils of a lesser quality than CJ-4 would lead to damage of the after-treatment devices (ash would fill the Diesel Particulate Filter resulting in reduced engine life and shorter fuel efficiency).
Through its commitment to Research and Development,TOTAL has stayed ahead of the standards and competition –offering cutting edge products and continuously developing new Rubia lubricants.
THE RUBIA ADVANTAGE
Rubia TIR 7900 15W-40 is a premium heavy duty diesel engine oil developed to exceed the latest and most stringent requirements of heavy duty trucks and diesel powered equipment.
The detergency and dispersancy of the oil are vital in keeping the engine clean which impacts horsepower and oil consumption. Formulating a low SAPS* oil such as Rubia TIR 7900 15W-40 meant reducing the use of traditional detergents (which contain sulfated ash), so TOTAL developed technology to optimize the cleanliness of the oil and offer excellent viscosity control (even at 288 hours and 8.5% soot).
ENGINEERED TO PROVIDE ADVANCED PROTECTION
Rubia TIR 7900 15W-40 was engineered by TOTAL to provide advanced protection, exceed OEM standards, outperform the competition, and deliver superior results under the toughest operating conditions.
