High-speed operators, such as fishing fleets and trawlers, demand confidence in their engine performance to keep their business moving and customers happy. Castrol’s range of oils for high-speed engines are proven to deliver optimum protection even in the harshest conditions.
With the advances of technology in modern diesel engines and ever tighter emission legislations, the role of engine oil has become extremely important. In addition, efficiency and reliability are still key drivers for the owners and operators of all commercial vehicles. Every day you need to make sure that your vehicle performs well and no unexpected failure occurs. Minimizing unscheduled downtime is key to keeping your business running smoothly and delivering on your promise. In response to those needs, Castrol has engineered a product range of advanced diesel engine oils that can reduce frictional resistance and protect against corrosion and wear, assist in sealing, contribute to cooling the engine, and facilitate the suspension of harmful combustion by-products.
Castrol HLX is a Super High Performance Diesel (SHPD) engine oil, specially formulated to meet the toughest marine lubricant industry specifications, including approval as a ‘Type 2’ MTU monograde lubricant. This provides extended drain capability that can double drain intervals when compared to standard marine oils. Castrol HLX is available in both SAE 30 and 40 viscosity grades.
