Marine Diesel Cylinder Lubricants

 

12S90ME-C Mark 9.2

As 2020 moves ever closer the need to ensure long term reliability is assured is a hot topic in the minds of the marine lube industry product development and marketeers.

The linked article by Dr Neil Canter for Tech Beat, references some of the key players in the lube oil field and is a very useful reference when trying to understand the future needs of the industry.

Cold corrosion gets a mention though the measures to engineer out the issue via choking the cooling circuits and thus raising the liner temperature above the dew point for the acidic byproducts is not mentioned. A fine read nevertheless.
