Chevron Debuts ISOCLEAN® Certified Lubricants and Services, the Industry’s First National Program Focused on Controlling Particle Contamination

Particle contamination is the number one cause of lubricant related failure in equipment.

SAN RAMON, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, today announced the launch of its ISOCLEAN Program, a first of its kind national program that offers a solution to particle contamination through products and in-plant services designed to assist customers in maximizing the life of their equipment by meeting stringent quality control standards set by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Chevron’s ISOCLEAN program includes ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants, which have been certified to meet the fluid ISO Cleanliness requirements of OEMs, and ISOCLEAN Services, which are in-plant services designed to clean up and manage contamination of in-service lubricants and operating systems. Both offerings are dependent on each other and help to reduce wear, decrease unscheduled downtime and extend the life of equipment.

Chevron’s ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants meet a specific ISO Cleanliness code at the point of delivery, which represents the most stringent cleanliness standards and specifications for lubricants placed in equipment that are required by several leading OEMs. An important first step in controlling lubricant contamination is starting with a certified lubricant. These products help reduce the expense and manpower required by end customers to pre-filter non-certified lubricants to meet OEM requirements.

ISOCLEAN Services are performed by a national certified network of service providers at the plant location. Controlling particle contamination for in-service equipment is another critical element in maintaining efficient operation. The portfolio of services performed may include:

  • Fluid purification and dehydration
  • Varnish removal and mitigation
  • High velocity flushing
  • Reservoir and tank cleaning
  • Condition monitoring and system audits
  • Fluid handling consultation

Chevron began rolling out its ISOCLEAN program in early 2015 and has developed a national network of ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricant Marketers. The program has seen such dramatic success that it will begin to expand internationally in 2016. The company’s goal is to significantly increase the number of certified marketers throughout many regions.

“No other company is as dedicated to providing solutions for lubricant particle contamination as Chevron,” said Doug Hinzie, VP Americas Lubricants at Chevron. “Our ISOCLEAN Program with certified lubricants and services is proof that we are investing heavily in this crucial industry need. In response to the request for a turnkey solution from customers and OEMs, we developed this comprehensive national program because we know how important it is to provide a consistent solution which is certified and backed by Chevron, and delivered wherever our customers need it.”

The number one cause of lubricant-related failures in equipment is contaminant particles – most of which are so small that they are unable to be seen by the naked eye. Controlling fluid contamination early in the process can significantly reduce the costs to remove it later, which is a direct saving that goes to the bottom line of our customers.

“It doesn’t matter if you are in mining, construction or own a fleet of trash trucks, it is all about lubricants and high pressure lubricants – the cleaner that oil is the longer it is going to last, because downtime is a killer,” said Freddie Dodge, expert miner and star of “Gold Rush” on the Discovery Channel. “You get peace of mind with ISOCLEAN lubricant system because every gallon you use you get a certificate that it is free of harmful contaminants.”

Chevron offers more than 50 ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants for critical equipment components from hydraulics to gear oils to synthetics for a variety of industries: agriculture, construction, manufacturing, mining, petrochemical refining, power generation, and waste hauling. ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricants give customers the opportunity to significantly maximize equipment component life: by 2 to 4 times in most cases.

These lubricants have undergone one of the most rigorous testing processes in the industry to verify that the lubricants performance is not compromised, which is exclusively done at the Chevron Research and Technology Center. All products delivered by ISOCLEAN Certified Lubricant Marketers meet the required certification process, which includes multiple tests, and follows stringent delivery processes to verify that the products meet specification on each delivery.

2014 Year In Review

2014 was a year filled with challenges, and continued improvements. We started the year with a tragic event when two of our colleagues were involved in a serious accident resulting in one of them losing their life. All great companies are made up of great people, and ours’ rallied in support of one another. While we continued to move forward, the loss was certainly felt throughout the company. Here are some of the positive changes that occurred throughout the year.

  • New sales personnel were added to outside sales.
  • Jackson moved into the number one slot as Brenntag’s largest DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) distributors in North America for the month of October just missing the mark for the entire year. We’ve also expanded our capabities by adding a second DEF tank wagon to the fleet.
  • Jackson Oil & Solvents surpassed its’ largest year of grease sales.
  • Ft. Wayne saw the addition of a new loading dock
  • Jackson rallied the fuel team to keep the Nestle plant operating after it lost a cooling tower.
  • The best single month performance ever and a strong start to the year.
  • Pacific Pride was introduced at the newly remodeled Joe’s Junction location at Kentucky & Raymond.
  • Our Deicng Fluid sales set a new record, thanks to the “Snow Team”.
  • Jackson Oil set a new record for equipment & services which continues to be a big differntiator for our business..

Whether you’re looking for outstanding premium lubrication and antifreeze products (Chevron), the Cummins Endorsed Valvoline Premium Blue for your heavy-duty engine (Valvoline), the Titanium advantage of Kendall & Guardol (ConocoPhillips),or a trusted name in premium additized fuel (Howes), we hope you’ll choose Jackson Oil.

From our family to yours, we hope you had a happy holiday and we are looking forward to providing you with great value and service in 2015.

The interactive truck was a great way to showcase premium Delo engine oils, lubricants, and coolants. The truck started an open dialog between the customers and their salesman. After the customers were done touring the truck, the salesman took them through our other 6 booths. The booths were Fuel Polishing, Racing, DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid), Equipment/FuelMaster, Polaris – oil/lubricant analysis, and Palmer Trucks.

The Fuel Polishing/Filtering booth was led by Mike Klepfer, our fuel filtering guru! He was able to not only talk about the benefits of being on a fuel filtering program, but he was able to show the benefits. He took the customers through the truck and explained how the fuel is transferred from the tank and filtered through from start to finish.

The Racing booth was led by the race master herself, Diane Poff. She explained our racing program and our race sponsorship (find out more here: http://jacksonoilsolvents.com/services/24-hour-race-station/). Also, she was able to showcase our full line of VP Racing Products and our 24-hour Race Station.

The DEF booth was led by Keith Huff, the creator of DEF-Depot. Keith went through the importance of being pure to the tank by showing the customers how we are able to keep the product pure. To watch a short video on DEF visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvU-uE_h7HM. To learn more about DEF-Depot visit: www.def-depot.com.

The equipment booth was led by 3 talented equipment and FuelMaster specialists: Jodie Brill, Randy Collier, and Rob Horton.   FuelMaster is an automated fuel management system that can be customized to a customer’s needs; such as smartcard (memory chip card), PROKEE® (memory chip key), credit card reader, keypad only, fleet card, AIM2 passive fueling (radio frequency device inside the vehicle with RFID Tags), mobile fueling for tanker trucks, car wash activation and gate openers just to name a few.

The Fluid Analysis booth was held down by Christine from Polaris Laboratories. She explained an effectively executed fluid analysis program eliminates the guesswork, risk and reactionary nature of your maintenance department. By learning to trust the power of the data, you can save millions of dollars by catching and monitoring problems before they become catastrophes, making unplanned downtime a thing of the past and even reducing the frequency of your current fluid changes.

The final booth we had was Palmer Trucks and the ever so talented salesman John Cummings manned this booth. He also brought a Kenworth tractor to show that in all Kenworth tractors, they are serviced with Chevron Delo XLE 400 10W30. For more information on Palmer Trucks visit: www.palmertrucks.com
