Tough Testing - Aeration Control

What is aeration? Aeration is not a chemical reaction but a physical process in which small bubbles of air as a foam become trapped in the lubricant.

Why does it matter? Aeration directly affects the intended lubrication properties of an oil. A high level of entrapped air will degrade the ability of the oil film to protect engine parts, potentially causing engine wear and ultimately meaning greater costs for operators.

How the new DURON™ handles aeration. DURON Next Generation meets or even exceeds the new category requirements for aeration control. That mean better long-term engine protection, so your engines work more and need maintaining less.
