Castrol® Cyltech protects marine engines against both wear and corrosion, in a variety of operating conditions and across a range of fuel sulfur levels.
Lubrication of two-stroke crosshead diesel engines is increasingly problematic for ship owners. That's because cylinder protection depends on the ability to balance feed rate, fuel sulfur and lubricant Base Number (BN).
Changes to engine design and the variability of fuel sulfur levels - combined with the need to control emissions - mean that protecting cylinders against both wear and corrosion is a significant challenge. This is especially true in an era when few owners can afford the expense of downtime.
The Castrol® Cyltech range offers ship owners a number of benefits. It has been formulated to protect liners in engines operating under corrosive condition, keeping liners, pistons and piston rings clean and reducing wear.
The Cyltech range also includes options that are tailored to reduce deposits and prevent hard ash buildup, for a variety of steaming conditions and specific fuel sulfur levels.
Whenever and wherever you need protection, Castrol® Cyltech is here to help make it happen.
