Mobilgard™ 540 X cylinder oil

Mobilgard™ 540 X cylinder oil contains a next-generation formulation, providing superior protection for two-stroke marine diesel engines using 0.10%, 0.50% sulphur fuels and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). As the latest edition to the advanced MobilGard™ range of lubricants, it reflects the evolving fuels landscape following the International Maritime Organisation’s (IMO) 2020 sulphur cap and a view towards the Green House Gas emissions regulation to come in 2050.

Mobilgard 540 X has passed extensive fit-for-use testing on the most recent engine designs and is suitable for use with all three of these three fuel varieties. It is also the first cylinder oil to be gas validated by WinGD.

Mobilgard 540 X offers a range of benefits, including:

  • ‘Keep clean’ performance across these low-sulphur fuels
  • Seamless compatibility with 0.10%, 0.50% sulphur fuels and LNG
  • Potential for substantial feed-rate reductions, compared to current generation cylinder oils
  • Ability to combat deposit formation

The IMO’s 2020 sulphur cap has heightened the importance of knowing what is happening inside your engine. ExxonMobil’s Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring (MS CCM) can also provide you with actionable insights on your engine’s health.

By combining Mobilgard 540 X with the MS CCM service, engine operators can take the next step in protecting their engine.

Mobilgard 540 X is available in major ports around the world including Singapore, the Antwerp-Rotterdam- Amsterdam port area, Houston, Hong Kong and Korea. It will also be offered at additional locations through ExxonMobil’s extensive network of over 650 ports throughout the world. Details and further updates are available via the ExxonMobil’s Ports and Services guide.

Product Information

Mobilgard 540 X combines the use of high-quality, globally consistent base stocks with a superb additive formulation to provide exceptional deposit control due to increased temperatures and pressures within combustion cylinders, which are particularly prevalent in LNG fuel operation. Mobilgard 540 X also offers outstanding resistance to oxidation, acid formation and wear protection which can lead to reduced component wear rates.
