MAN Diesel launches lube oil range

21 Sep 2010 13:58 GMT

PrimeServLube product range launched for high, medium and low speed engines.



As part of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s customer care programme, the company has decided to provide a special package of lube oils for its engines under the PrimeServLube brand in association with a leading, global lube-oil producer.

Lube oils for high and medium speed engines have already been released – with an initial sale of 60,000 litres to an Australian power station served by MAN 51/60DF medium speed engines – and will be followed by products for low speed engines.

The HSeries40D lubricants are fully synthetic Extra High Performance Diesel (XHPD) oils designed to meet the most severe performance requirements of the latest European Euro-2 and Euro-3 type high speed diesel engines with high power ratings and low emissions. High speed engines of Japanese origin are also targeted as well as similar marine engines for which M3277 performance oils are specified.

Amongst the benefits yielded are said to be reduced maintenance costs, maximised engine life and power output, ultra-long oil drain intervals and low oil consumption.

A range of MSeries crankcase and trunk piston engine oils for medium speed engines are tailored to the requirements of gas-powered designs (MSeries40G) and engines burning marine diesel (MSeries40D) or heavy fuel with low, medium or high sulphur contents (respectively MSeries40H2, H3 and H4).

Numerous benefits from a balanced additive combination include wear protection, deposit control, oxidation stability, rust prevention and detergent-dispersant properties.

Low speed two-stroke engine requirements are covered by LSeries system oils and cylinder oils. The LSeries30s product is a premium quality SAE 30 grade alkaline system oil for the crankcases of two-stroke engines, and is particularly suitable for those with oil-cooled pistons. According to MAN Diesel, bearings are protected from corrosive wear, oil purification is simplified and time-between-overhauls extended.

The LSeries40c product has been tailored to the requirements of two-stroke engines burning low sulphur fuels. It is said to be a high performance 40 BN/SAE 50 cylinder lubricant delivering lubrication properties in conjunction with wear protection. Similar benefits are said to be offered by 70 BN/SAE 50 cylinder oil (LSeries70c) formulated for two-stroke engines burning high sulphur fuels.

Both cylinder oil products are designed to lubricate all low speed marine engines operating at high specific power outputs and high thermal loads.

"MAN Diesel & Turbo’s principles of high ecological and economical efficiency provide the impetus for a continuous development of its engines, and the company always strives for its products to be of the highest quality and to exceed environment regulations," the company said in a statement.
