- Engine Protection
Effective acid neutralisation helps ensure protection against excessive cylinder liner and piston ring wear resulting from the use of high sulphur heavy fuel oils, contributing to extended cylinder liner and piston ring life.
- Engine Cleanliness
Helps to prevent ring sticking and minimise deposit formation on the pistons and throughout the combustion chamber exhaust areas.
- Storage Stability
Stable at ambient temperature and during long-term storage.
Compatible with diesel cylinder lubricants generally known to the international marine trade.
- Operating cost
If oil feed rate is above the minimum level recommended by OEM, there is potential to move to a higher base number formulation to provide the same level of alkalinity and corrosion protection but at lower feed rates, therefore reducing operating cost.
