Taro® DP SAE 40

Marine Engine Oils

Taro® DP SAE 40

Mineral Oil

Taro® DP Series lubricants are high-performance, medium- to high-BN, diesel engine oils for medium and high-speed trunk piston diesel engines. Taro® DP Series lubricants are specially developed for use in medium-speed, trunk piston diesel engines burning residual fuels with a maximum sulphur content up to 4%. Taro® 20 DP can also be used in combination with marine diesel or gas oil. Taro® DP Series lubricants are blended from high-quality base oils and additives that provide an extra margin of protection against ring sticking, piston deposits and wear under the most severe operating conditions.

Suitable Applications
  • Wear Protection
    High BN levels control cylinder liner wear effectively and protect bearings from corrosion. High-performance, antiwear additives provide excellent protection against adhesive wear for cams, camshaft and bearings. Taro® DP Series lubricants also provide a high degree of water tolerance and antifoam protection.
  • Detergent-Dispersant Properties
    Keeps crankcases and oil control rings clean. Prevents deposit formation throughout the engine. Reduces lube oil filter blockage. Effectively handles insolubles.
  • Oxidation Stability
    Oxidation inhibitors protect the oil against high thermal stresses, protect engine parts from corrosion and reduce undercrown deposits while promoting extended lubricant life.
  • Taro® DP Series lubricants are high-performance, medium- to high-BN, diesel engine oils for medium and high-speed trunk piston diesel engines. Taro® DP Series lubricants are specially developed for use in medium-speed, trunk piston diesel engines burning residual fuels with a maximum sulphur content up to 4%.

Taro® DP Series lubricants are blended from high-quality base oils and additives that provide an extra margin of protection against ring sticking, piston deposits and wear under the most severe operating conditions.
  • Taro® DP Series lubricants have very good viscosity control when used in severe high temperature service, and their excellent BN retention characteristics prevent corrosive wear over long periods of operation. The unique detergent and dispersant additive system provides outstanding piston cleanliness as well as control of fuel contaminants. This results in extreme reduction of both “hot” (piston lands and grooves, piston undercrown, purifier preheaters) and “cold” (crankcase, cambox, rocker area, fuel pumps, purifier bowl) deposits. Taro® DP Series lubricants provide a high degree of water tolerance and have good water separation and base retention properties.
  • Taro® DP Series lubricants are recommended for all types of trunk piston diesel engines burning 1) marine diesel oil or low sulphur heavy fuels with a sulphur content up to 2% [Taro® 20 DP]; or 2) residual fuels with a maximum sulphur level of 4% [Taro® 30 DP]. Taro DP Series lubricants are approved by all major OEMs.
