- Taro® Ultra 40 is a 40 Base Number (BN) cylinder lubricant designed for lubricating the latest generation two-stroke / slow-speed crosshead diesel engines running on low sulphur fuels under all loads and operating conditions. Taro® Ultra 40 is blended with highly refined base oils and carefully selected additives to provide excellent ring and liner wear protection and piston cleanliness in slow-speed crosshead diesel engines.
- Taro® Ultra 40 is recommended for lubricating the cylinders of large two-stroke / slow-speed crosshead diesel engines continuously using low sulphur fuel, under all loads and operating conditions. Running on low sulphur fuel requires the reduction of base introduced into the cylinder. This can be achieved by optimising the oil feed rate or selecting a diesel cylinder lubricant with a lower base number. Taro® Ultra 40 should be used in accordance with OEM guidelines and recommendations.
