ConocoPhillips upgrades transmission oil products

June 23, 2008

ConocoPhillips Co. has upgraded its TO-4 transmission oil products line "to meet the increasing demands for higher performance fluids in today's heavy duty machinery," according to the company.

As part of the upgrade, the current line, featuring Conoco PowerDrive Fluid, Phillips 66 Torque Fluid, 76 Lubricants HT/4 Fluid and Kendall Powershift Transmission Fluid, will be enhanced with an additive technology "that provides better equipment protection and improved performance while increasing productivity through reduced equipment maintenance and related downtime," says Reginald Dias, director of Commercial Products Lubricants.

"ConocoPhillips Lubricants' upgraded transmission fluids not only meet or exceed the current industry specifications, they also provide elevated performance in friction control, load carrying capacity and the protection of hydraulic systems," he adds.

The new TO-4 fluids come in several different viscosity grades for use in the final drive gear box (heavy), transmission (medium) and hydraulics (light) systems. The revised fluids directly replace the previous generation fluids.

The upgraded TO-4 fluids will be available at the end of June. For more information, visit
