ExxonMobil Premium AFME 200
ExxonMobil commercial-fuel , Rep South Africa
ExxonMobil Premium AFME 200 joins ExxonMobil Premium HDME 50 as part of a new category of marine fuel that has emerged as a result of the 2015 ECA sulphur limit of 0.10 percent. These low sulphur fuels help engineers safely and efficiently operate their main and auxiliary engines and boilers.
It is formulated using a proprietary refining process that removes sulphur, metals and other contaminants. This enables the fuel to comply with the ECA sulphur cap and also helps to optimise the performance of engines and extend component life.
The viscosity of ExxonMobil Premium AFME 200 is comparable to heavy fuel oil (HFO) enabling similar storage and handling practices. Both fuels require preheating, reducing the risk of thermal shock to engine components during switchovers to comply with the ECA sulphur cap.
The fuel also has a higher flashpoint than marine gas oil (MGO) and is therefore less volatile. This makes it safer to use in boilers as there is a reduced risk of boiler furnace explosions.
While ExxonMobil Premium AFME 200 is a unique product with advantages over traditional fuel oil, it also meets and exceeds the ISO 8217:2012 RME 180 specification.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
