Brittany Ferries prolongs medium-speed marine cylinder life using Signum℠ Oil Analysis

Brittany Ferries successfully extended cylinder life and reduced total oil consumption on a passenger ferry with the ExxonMobil Signum℠ Oil Analysis program.

Features and Benefits

Mobilgard M30 Series oils have high performance thermal and oxidation stability. They have excellent TBN retention and resistance to viscosity increases over long operating periods. They also promote a high level of engine cleanliness with protection against wear. Compared to other medium speed engine oils, they have excellent lube/fuel compatibility and separate easily from water.

When used as recommended, Mobilgard M30 Series oils provide the following benefits:

Features
Advantages and Potential Benefits
Excellent thermal and oxidation stability Reduced deposits in piston undercrown and ring belt areas
Improved anti-wear properties Extends the life of critical wear surfaces
Advanced detergency/dispersancy Clean camshaft and crankcase spaces
Outstanding rust and corrosion properties Protects wear surfaces from water and acidic corrosion
High Residual Fuel Compatibility Reduced sludge formation, longer oil life, cleaner engines
Low volatility base stocks Reduced lubricant consumption
Excellent TBN Reserve and Retention Combats fuel/combustion related corrosion and deposits

Applications

Mobilgard M30 Series oils can be used in most medium-speed trunk piston engine applications. They are recommended for use in main propulsion and auxiliary engines on deep-sea vessels; in main propulsion engines on coastal and river ships; and in stationary power plants. This new Series of oils is the result of an extensive research and development program, incorporating ExxonMobil's patented DAC (Detecting Aspahltene Contamination) Test.

Mobilgard M30 Series oils are designed to meet the needs of engines operating on heavy fuel. They are recommended for use in the latest model medium speed diesel engines and are especially beneficial in engines having low crankcase oil consumption or operating with low cylinder liner temperatures. Relatively high alkalinity reserves in these oils provide excellent protection in neutralising the strong acids resulting from the use of high sulphur fuels that find access to the crankcase to promote oil degradation and ring, cylinder, and bearing corrosion.
