Cosco Yantian container ship

Mobilgard™ 570 helped more than triple a container vessel’s piston ring replacement period

Costamere Shipping implemented Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoringand Mobilgard™ 570cylinder oil on the Cosco Yantian container vessel.

As a result of using Mobilgard™ 570 cylinder oil, after more than 55,000 hours the piston rings throughout the engine were still within operational parameters, almost three and a half times the recommended replacement period for unmonitored operation. In addition, on-board testing also showed an impressive reduction in liner wear rates.

All this was achieved under intensive operating conditions. The vessel had operated with a fixed cylinder oil feed rate for many years before the change in cylinder oil, plus the Cosco Yantian had been slow steaming in the 10 to 40 per cent load range, which made the engine more corrosive than had been expected.
