STARFIRE Railroad Engine Oil 40w and Multigrade SAE 20W-40 are premium locomotive crankcase oils designed to provide optimum engine
protection for high horsepower, turbocharged two and four cycle engines normally found in railroads, marine and stationary power generation
units where zinc-free oils are required. They are formulated to an LMOA Generation 6 quality level and are approved and qualified under EMD’s
internal listing. STARFIRE Railroad Engine Oils meet the requirements and are compatible with earlier generation railroad diesel engine oils.
PERFORMANCE FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
Recommended for Electro-Motive Diesel LMOA Generation 5 and General Electric LMOA Generation 4 Long Life applications.
Multigrade 20W-40 is formulated to provide year-round engine protection with enhanced cold weather start-up performance.
STARFIRE Railroad Engine Oils utilize the latest railroad oil chemistry that is both zinc and chlorine free to protect engines fitted with
silver bearings while helping to reduce used oil recycling costs and environmental impact.
Excellent detergent, dispersant and anti-wear performance that provides for outstanding engine cleanliness while reducing sludge build-up
helping to optimize oil drain intervals and fuel savings.
Good retention of Total Base Number (TBN) to protect engine against corrosive combustion by-products while meeting the needs of both new
and older locomotive engines.
GE and EMD engines designed for use with low sulfur and ultra-low sulfur fuels. Fully compatible with older engines formerly
using higher TBN oils and high sulfur fuels.
Medium speed two-cycle and four-cycle diesel engines typically employed in railroad diesel engines, switching, short line and
regional locomotives, including EMD and General Electric.
Most diesel marine applications such as tug boats, work boats and auxiliary engines that require a zinc- free additive system.
Stationary engines used in power generation, off-shore drilling and mine-haul applications.
