In Canada, the oil industry has a life of its own. It breathes global change, pumps success and feels the impact of environmental challenges. At the heart of this business beats the machinery that keeps it running every day. Petro-Canada Lubricants is dedicated to providing high-performance solutions to protect these vital assets across the industry.
At Petro-Canada, we’re proud to work with leading oilsands operations. Every day, your equipment is met with tough working conditions, including severe temperatures, unpredictable weather conditions and unfavourable terrain. Oilsands mining is a key part of the global economy, and as such, there is greater focus on leveraging savings and preventing costly downtime – fundamental aspects of gaining that competitive edge. It takes the finest fluids and greases to meet the extreme demands placed on these machines.
Commitment, experience and expertise
Petro-Canada has been an integral part of the Canadian oilsands mining industry for over 30 years and we understand the circumstances faced by today’s operations. To our customers, we’re more than just suppliers – we’re partners in helping them meet their business goals.
We know the challenges in finding the right lubricants for the job, which is why we work with our customers to identify the right products across their equipment. And with proven experience working with major OEMs, we make sure your machinery is kept running the way it was designed to. We carry this service leadership and support right through to daily operations, upgrades and change-outs, every step of the way.
Products that perform
It’s this expertise that we put behind our full suite of products, designed to keep operations reliable and efficient. We understand the importance in extending the life of your equipment and minimizing maintenance costs. Whether it’s on-road or off-road equipment, our lubricants are formulated to improve equipment performance, reduce downtime, cut operating costs, and extend equipment life.
So what is our performance secret?
We use only the purest base oils to create the best products for your operation.
What sets our products apart?
Petro-Canada’s fluids and greases are free from impurities that hinder performance. It all starts with 99.9 per cent pure, crystal-clear base oils — among the purest in the world. Our base oils are produced from the patented HT Purity process. This severe HydroTreating process removes the impurities found in many conventional products.
These ultra-pure, API Groups II and III base oils are then blended with the highest-performance additives that deliver a clear advantage in our finished products.
Batch processing may be a traditional form of grease manufacturing, but Petro-Canada is anything but old-fashioned. Batch processing allows our crafters to take full advantage of the properties of the ultra-pure base oils. This advanced process produces results far beyond today’s standards:
- Exceptional low temperature performance
- Long life for maximum equipment durability
- Reduced equipment downtime
- Cost savings through lower maintenance costs
- Increased productivity
Proven performance in the field
At our facility in Mississauga, Ontario, we produce over 350 innovative lubricants, specialty fluids and greases that deliver greater purity, durability, multi-functionality and performance. We pride ourselves in being the total solution provider, no matter the operational challenges.
One of our standout products in the Canadian oil industry is the VULTREX family of greases for open and enclosed gear lubrication. These products contain synthetic fluids to provide excellent performance for handling some of the harshest operating conditions – from intense summer heat to severe winter cold, and wet or dusty environments.
Customers choose VULTREX OGL time and time again because of its ability to extend shovel component life, which can provide customers with reduced operating costs and savings. Petro-Canada’s VULTREX OGL technology is proven to extend BI 395B shovel component life by an average of 25,000 hours. This translates to time and money saved in replacements and repairs.
VULTREX is among many of our superior products formulated for use in today’s oil mining and drilling operations, including:
- PRECISION – Greases for a wide range of equipment
- ENDURATEX – Gear oils
- DURON – Heavy duty engine oils
