ASTM Heavy-Duty Engine Oil Classification Panel ABSTRACT In order to meet the U.S. EPA’s 2007 on-highway emission standards for particulate and NOx, all diesel engines will re- quire diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and will utilize ultra-low sulfur fuel. As this will be the first time that all on-highway diesel engines will employ DPFs combined with ultra-low-sulfur fuel, the Engine Manufacturers Association (EMA) requested that a new oil category be developed to provide compatibility with DPFs in the exhaust system, as well as engine durability for both new and legacy engines. This paper reviews the development of this new oil category called API CJ-4, which will be introduced in October 2006. This diesel engine oil category is the first in the U.S. which limits the oil’s sulfated ash, phosphorus, and sulfur in order to insure adequate service life of the DPF. The API CJ-4 oil category includes 10 fired engine tests and 6 bench tests. The new multi-cylinder tests in the category include Caterpillar ACERT C13, Cummins ISB, Cummins ISM, Mack T-12, and Mack T-11, which cover oil consump- tion, piston deposits, ring-liner, bearing wear, valve-train wear, soot dispersancy, oil oxidation, and viscosity shear. These tests are juxtaposed on existing tests selected from the API CI-4 category. It is the most robust API oil category ever de- veloped in the U.S. INTRODUCTION of improvements in in-cylinder combustion. These im- provements include the use of: The U.S. EPA has defined specific emission reductions of • Turbocharging, air-to-air intercooling, four valve particulate and NOx for both on- and off-highway diesel- cylinder heads, and changes in the piston bowl powered vehicles.

(See Fig. 1 and provide engine durability for both new and legacy engines. Appendix Fig. A-1.)

Exhaust Diesels will also employ some form of EGR to control NOx in all 2007 engines. The level of EGR will be increased over the 2002 high pressure EGR rates, though this will not change the external architecture of engines. In the case of Caterpil- Clean Air lar’s Advanced Combustion Emission Reduction Technology 15 ppm Max Fuel Sulfur (ACERT) engine, they have selected low pressure EGR. This NO-NO2 requires taking the exhaust at the outlet of the DPF and return- Engine ing it to the inlet air via an external piping system. Caterpillar Exhaust refers to this as “clean air induction.” Temperature Oxicat DPF Control The 2007 standard requires that the engine emission system must remain compliant for the following specified mileages, depending on vehicle type: • 700, 000 km (435,000 miles) for heavy-duty vehicles Auxilary Heat NO + 1/2 O2 NO2 over oxicat (1) and transit buses Additional Exhaust Heat For Cold-Duty NO2 + C NO + CO in DPF (2) • 290,000 km (180,000 miles) for mid-range vehicles Cycle NO2 + C 1/ N2 + CO2 in DPF (3) 2 • 240,000 km (150,000 miles) for light-duty vehicles Fig. 2.

This NO2 combusts the particulate matter at a low combustible material in the DPF at constant oil consumption temperature range of 250-350°C (1-3). (See Fig. 2.) (4).

In regard to regeneration (3). diesel engines, the greater concern was valve train wear, since the phosphorous level is critical to its control. INCOMBUSTIBLE DPF MATERIALS 1.0% Ash 0.12% Phosphorus Since the filter media is designed to trap soot particles of the order of 60 nm in diameter, the media is also capable of trap- ping ash derived from the engine oil’s metallic components (3). Previous research studies indicate that the incombusti- ble material is dominated by the combustion products of lubri- API CJ-4 cants additives. It is primarily derived from the lubricant’s cal- Chemical Limits cium or magnesium detergents and from zinc dithiophosphates (ZnDTP), which is both a wear and oxidation inhibitor (2-9). The most recent study by Mc Geehan et al. in 2005 character- ized the incombustible particle size. The distribution of these elements is bimodal, with a large number of particles of 0.4- 13% Volatility 0.4% Sulfur micron diameter and the remainder at 8 microns. Overwhelm- ingly, the majority of particles are submicron. Also, the carbon Fig. 3.
