Diesel engines are an important piece of equipment on all offshore assets.
Diesel engines are utilised in many applications by the offshore industry. This can range from lifeboat engines, through emergency power generation applications to being the prime source of power for drilling operations. For each offshore engine application Castrol have a product available to meet the demanding needs placed on the lubricant. Lubrication recommendations vary, but all consider the following factors: industry specifications, OEM recommendation, lubricant oil viscosity and base number. Our diesel engine oils meet specifications of main diesel engine OEMs such as Caterpillar, GM-EMD, Detroit Diesel, MTU and Wartsila. For more information ask your local Castrol Technical Service Engineer.

RLX SUPER 40
Castrol RLX Super 40 is Zinc and Chlorine free monograde engine crankcase lubricant designed for the lubrication of diesel propulsion, diesel electric and stationary power generation installations, where a zinc free lubricant is specified. It is formulated to meet the requirements of engines manufactured by General Motors Electromotive Division (GM-EMD), General Electric (GE) and ALCO. This grade is suitable for all engines fitted with silver bearings, particularly those used in Marine and Offshore power generation sets.
ENDURON MT 10W-40
Castrol Enduron MT is an SAE 10W-40 semi-synthetic diesel engine lubricant . Enduron MT is recommended particularly for MTU diesel engines where “Type 3” approval is required. Enduron MT is also recommended for other high-speed marine engines such as MAN where ACEA E4 performance is required and/or extreme conditions require cold-start ability.
HLX 30 & 40
Castrol HLX, is formulated for use in very highly rated high speed marine and power generation diesel engines that use distillate fuel with sulphur from zero up to 1% and require extreme performance. It is particularly suitable for high power density applications such as fast ferries. Castrol HLX has been specially formulated to meet the latest performance requirements of marine monograde lubricant specifications, allowing extended drain periods to effectively compete with performance normally associated with synthetic oils. Castrol HLX is available in both SAE 30 and 40 viscosity grades.
MHP 153 &154
The MHP Range is a high performance lubricant formulated using the highest quality base oils and a unique balance of additives to offer both economic and operational benefits. MHP is available in both SAE 30 and 40 viscosity grades. The product is specifically developed for use in modern highly rated marine and power generation four-stroke engines operating on distillate fuels. MHP has high load carrying capabilities and excellent gear performance that allows it to be used as a common oil for both engine and transmission systems. MHP exceeds the specifications of API CF and is fully approved by major marine engine makers worldwide.
TLX PLUS RANGE
TLX Plus is formulated using high quality base oils incorporating a unique formulation of additive technology systems designed to overcome the adverse conditions seen in low oil consumption engines operating with varying heavy fuel qualities. TLX Plus is a range of engine oils developed for use in medium speed diesel engines in marine propulsion and power generation applications. Castrol TLX Plus range of oils hold approvals from all major medium speed engine manufacturers.
RADICOOL SF Premix
Castrol Radicool SF is a long-life coolant based on monoethylene glycol with advanced organic acid inhibitor technology. In contrast to traditional antifreeze coolants, Castrol Radicool SF does not contain amines, nitrites, phosphates, silicates or other inorganic inhibitors.It effectively works over a wide range of operating temperatures for effective engine cooling in all climates and for a wide range of engines, providing excellent protection against corrosion, cooling system blockage, overheating and freezing. Suitable for use in mixed fleets.
RADICOOL NF Premix
Castrol Radicool NF is a long-life antifreeze formulated using monoethylene glycol andselected additives, free from nitrite, amine and phosphate inhibitors. It uses hybrid technology for the modern performance engines of cars and trucks. This coolant gives optimum corrosion and freezing protection between -18°C and -36 °C.
Castrol Radicool is a concentrated summer engine coolant for use in both petrol and diesel engines with aluminium or cast iron engines. Castrol Radicool is a mixture of monethylene glycol and selected chemical agents. It contains no nitrites, amines or Phosphates that helps to reduce deposits in some modern performance engines. The product provides one full year protection in temperatures that do not exceed -18 deg C. To maintain optimum performance the product should be replaced after 1 year.
Always check your equipment manual and consult with a Castrol Technical Service Engineer to choose the right product for the right application.
