Global Classification of performance properties of diesel engine oils
These specifications were developed jointly by ACEA (Association des Constructeurs Europeens des Automobiles), members of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, EMA (Engine Manufacturers Association) and JAMA (Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc.). The development combines requirements for diesel engine oils in a single specification and is intended for use around the world.
The Global DHD-1 specification applies to truck diesel engine oils with a gross vehicle weight rating greater than 3,900 kg.
The Global DLD-1, 2, 3 specifications apply to diesel engine oils for passenger cars, vans and light trucks.
Classification of engine oils for diesel engines global
|DHD-1||Engine oils are designed for high-speed, four-stroke heavy-duty diesel engines that are designed to meet global exhaust emission standards of 1998 and newer. The basic requirements of Global DHD-1 are close to the requirements of API CH-4. These oils are suitable for engines running on diesel fuel with high sulfur content.|
|DLD-1||The basic level to the performance properties of engine oils for light duty diesel engines. Global DLD-1 requirements are close to the requirements of ACEA A3/B3.|
|DLD-2||The highest level of performance for light-duty diesel engine oils. Energy-saving oils for engines that run on low-sulfur diesel fuels.|
|DLD-3||Higher level of performance for light duty diesel engine oils. The requirements of Global DLD-3 are close to the requirements of ACEA A3/B4.
Oils for engines running on low-sulfur diesel fuels.
