The base number (BN) of the marine cylinder lubricant produced with MCLA should align with the sulphur content of the fuel used. It is important that the additive is mixed with a proper feedstock, to ensure it performs efficiently.
1. Wear Protection
Ensures protection against excessive cylinder liner and piston ring wear resulting from the use of bunker fuels containing various levels of sulphur.
2. Detergent/Dispersant Properties
Helps to prevent ring sticking and minimizes deposit formation throughout the combustion chamber exhaust areas.
3. Good Lubrication Properties
Maintains an oil film under severe, high load conditions, therefore reducing frictional wear and preventing scuffing of liners, pistons and rings.
4. Storage Stability
Completely stable at various ambient temperatures and during long-term storage.
Miscible and compatible with alkaline diesel cylinder lubricants generally known to the international marine trade.
