What’s new Remaining

What’s new Remaining power available to drive the vehicle Inside LongLife low frictiongear oils Heat – 50% Mechanical power loss Engine – 8.5% Hypoid rear axle – 2.5% Transmission – 1.5% 100% Fuel Remaining power = 37.5% As a manufacturer of chemical and industrial products, MOTOREX is frequently asked about its environmental policy. It’s a subject that has always been of genuine concern at BUCHER-MOTOREX and not just an area to which lip service has to be paid. MOTOREX’s living environmental policy 6 Pictures: Scania You’re driving your car and have filled up with 60 liters of petrol. Your fuel economy is 10 liters/100 km, which means that you can drive for 600 km. The vehicle’s power balance from the tank to the tires on the road is sobering: Of the energy that you put in your tank, only slightly more than a third, or 37.5%, is left to drive the vehicle. 62.5% is “lost” on the way and converted to heat. The transmission and rear axle together account for up to 4% of this chain of losses. Transmission losses cost you the driver about 2.4 liters of fuel! It’s easy to calculate how much this costs you in your local currency. If you are driving a truck, it would cost you twice as much to cover this loss. What’s needed: new transmission oils In the past, an SAE 80W GL-4 standard transmission oil was used in the manual transmission, and an SAE 90 GL-5 was used in the hypoid rear axle. However, with the need to reduce fuel consumption, transmissions have become smaller, lighter and higher performing; which means stricter specifications for modern transmission oils. Working together with vehicle manufacturers, MOTOREX produced a new generation of transmission oils, which are making a significant contribution to your car’s ecoefficiency. The main properties are: •Maximum shifting comfort Totally smooth shifting over the entire temperature range (–40 to +120°C).Even at wintry temperatures, manual shifting does not require any noticeably greater force, nor are any lowtemperature-induced rubbing and scratching noises audible. •Reduced noise Whining, humming, or grinding transmissions are out of place in high-tech vehicles. • LongLife oil change intervals In modern transmissions, peak temperatures of up to 135°C may be encountered.At these temperatures, the lubricant must fully retain all of its properties and must do so over its full service life. •Fuel economy The design and lubrication of differentials and manual transmissions help to save fuel (low-friction transmission oils).Lower friction losses can improve fuel consumption by 0.5–1.5%. • Measurably more power As little torque (and therefore power and performance) are lost in the transmission as possible. • Universal use Manual and trans-axle transmissions and in some cases even hypoid rear axles can be optimally lubricated with just a single product. Synthetic base fluids Semisynthetic and fully synthetic base fluids have played a crucial role in the breakthrough in LongLife transmission oils. MOTOREX high-end products are now available with optimally matched additive combinations. The following products have been especially developed for large truck transmissions with extended oil change intervals: • MOTOREX PENTA TL SAE 75W/90 Fully synthetic LongLife low-friction, highperformance transmission oil for trucks, GL-5, MB235.8, MAN 342 SL+, SCANIA STO 1:0 (Transmission Oil STO 1.0, Issue 6), ZF TE-ML 07A, 12B, 16F, 17B • MOTOREX PENTA SAE 75W/140 Fully synthetic LongLife, low-friction, highperformance transmission oil for trucks, GL-5 • MOTOREX PRISMA TF SAE 75W/85 Synthetic LongLife, low-friction, high-performance transmission oil for trucks (Synthetic Performance, API GL-4, Performance Level: VOLVO 97’305 and VOLVO 97’307, MAN 341 TL, ZF TE-ML 02D, Eaton The range of low-friction transmission oils from the CAR LINE was already featured in a previous edition. All of us have certainly asked ourselves on various occasions what our world will look like tomorrow or beyond. Our ultimate goal, however, is to make certain that planet Earth will remain a wonderful place for future generations to live. All the employees of the BUCHER-MOTOREX group are committed to this principle, and truly sustainable development lies at the center of all our activities. Our responsibility to our environment is of central concern, both at the workplace and in our private lives. We are guided by the following principles: • Our environmental policy encompasses every area of the BUCHER-MOTOREX group and serves as a guiding principle in all our industrial processes. • We develop, sell, and produce MOTOREX products that are safe to manufacture, safe to use, safe to recycle, and safe to dispose of. • We minimize the burden on human beings and on the environment in the manufacturing, storage, sale and use of our MOTOREX products. • Each day we strive to produce as little waste as possible, to conserve resources, and to keep emissions low. • Economic concerns, safety, environmental protection and health all enjoy the same high status in our MOTOREX strategy. • We are continually striving to improve safety, health, and environmental protection. We accept this responsibility voluntarily, without being forced to do so by laws or government regulations, and we regularly invest significant sums of money in these areas. • We seek an open, constructive dialogue with our partners, with governmental agencies, and with the public. Our goal is to promote mutual understanding and create trust in the BUCHER-MOTOREX group. It goes without saying that MOTOREX’s environmental policy is continually being modified to take on board new achievements, discoveries and suggestions for improvements from our employees. MOTOREX’s environmental policy needs to be a vibrant and perceptibly efficient commitment. Picture: BASF A total of 15 tank cars transport the base oils used by MOTOREX via the most direct route possible from the refinery to our storage tanks in Langenthal. Used brake fluid is collected and converted to valuable basic molecules for use in the manufacture of plastics. 7
