Perkins ELC (Extended Life Coolant)
Get better protection for your engine
Perkins Extended Life Coolant (ELC) is a proven performer at protecting the life of your engine – and using it can cut your coolant costs by up to 50 percent.
Developed, tested and approved by Perkins, ELC lasts for 6,000 hours in our industrial and commercial engines, which is at least twice as long as conventional coolants. Another advantage is that it doesn’t require the addition of supplemental coolant additives (SCAs).
The longer running time not only reduces the cost of the coolant itself by up to 50 percent, but also saves on downtime, labour and disposal costs.
