CASTROL CYLTECH 40SX

High performance cylinder oil for use with all compliant fuels

CASTROL                            CYLTECH 40SX 

 

Castrol Cyltech 40SX is a marine diesel engine cylinder lubricant developed with a bespoke detergency system for operations at higher temperatures and pressures in modern engines,which operate on fuels with sulphur content of between 0.0-1.5%*, and LNG.

 

WHY YOU NEED IT

 

  • Bespoke detergency system for engine cleanliness
  • Very good overall performance, especially deposit control
  • Excellent performance at optimised feed rates
  • Approved for use in WINGD DF dual fuel engines running on LNG
  • Proven performance on biofuels (B30 and B50)**

 

     *  Refer to OEM guidelines.

   **  Based on no harms vessel trials carried out by bp on B30 and B50 biofuel blends

A successful transition to a compliant cylinder oil

A SUCCESSFUL TRANSITION TO A COMPLIANT CYLINDER OIL

Headquartered in Athens, Greece – and in business for over 50 years – Sea Pioneer Shipping operates a fleet of bulkers and tankers that provide safe, efficient, and cost-effective transportation services. In partnership with Sea Pioneer, Castrol has provided technical guidance and lubricant solutions for their fleet for more than a decade.

 

To prepare for compliance with IMO 2020 regulations – which limit the level of sulphur in a ship’s fuel oil to a maximum of 0.5% – Sea Pioneer leadership called for a review of fleet operations, including its tanker, Tenacity. Sea Pioneer Shipping needed to ensure that any changes would protect their vessels’ engines, meet compliance with IMO 2020 regulations, and deliver safe, efficient, and cost-effective service to their clients.

 

 

The Castrol Technical Services team applied their deep understanding of Tenacity’s operating goals, OEM guidance and potential engine risks with a fuel transition, and recommended a switch to Castrol Cyltech 40SX.

 

To facilitate this transition, the Castrol Technical Services team conducted a series of closely monitored tests to assess Tenacity’s main engine cylinder lubrication using Scavenge Drain Analysis (SDA) while the vessel’s crew conducted regular Scavenge Port Inspections (SPI).

WE THANK CASTROL TECHNICAL SERVICE LOCAL OFFICE IN GREECE FOR GUIDING AND SUPPORTING US DURING THIS OPERATIONAL CHANGE AND FOR THE OVERALL EXCELLENT COOPERATION WE HAVE THROUGH THE YEARS.Kallergis Leon,Technical Manager.

 

CLEANER CYLINDERS, RELIABLE OPERATIONS

The collaborative partnership between Sea Pioneer leadership and the Castrol Technical Services team helped ensure Tenacity’s transition to the appropriate lubricant at an optimized feed rate, which in turn helped reduce operational risks. Throughout 2020, Tenacity continued to meet its client needs and no abnormal engine part failures relating to lubricant usage were reported. In October 2020, another round of SPI and SDA sampling tests showed that Castrol Cyltech 40SX had helped protect Tenacity’s MAN Mark 9 engine.

  • No failures in engine parts relating to lubricant usage
  • Clean piston rings and crowns, with no polishing or scuffing
  • No unplanned maintenance or abnormal failures
