Our customers are out there on the road, in the dirt, the mud and the grime, getting the job done and at SCL we are always looking for new and improved ways to support them in maintaining and optimizing the machines, fleets and vehicles that keep our country moving. As a proud partner of Chevron, we stand behind their Chevron ISOCLEAN Program as an effective and reliable way to fight wear while preventing costly equipment downtime while simultaneously extending the life of your valuable equipment.
The cold, hard truth is that when you’re working in rough, dirty environments, particles such as metal, dirt, rocks, dust and sludge have a way of entering your engine and lubrication system causing further contamination and wear. Chevron’s ISOCLEAN® Program was designed to combat such contamination and wear from the inside out, providing just the right products and expertise to enhance the overall wellbeing of your engine. Like a blood thinner moving through the circulatory system, Chevron ISOCLEAN offers contamination control for your circulating lubrication systems.
