Mobilgard™ 5100 cylinder oil and Mobil Serv℠ Cylinder Condition Monitoring ended cold corrosion

APL, a leading provider of global container shipping services, discovered that its MAN Mark 9.2 engines were suffering from significant levels of cold corrosion. Its MAN Mark 7 and Wärtsilä RTA engines were also affected although at lower levels. Mobil Serv Cylinder Condition Monitoring data was used to assess cylinder oil needs and feed rates.

The MAN Mark 9.2 engines were switched to Mobilgard™ 5100 cylinder oil and benefited from reduced cold corrosion and an 18.5% reduction of cylinder oil consumption. Analysis of the MAN Mark 7 and Wärtsilä RTA engines, which were running Mobilgard™ 570, enabled a 7% overall feed rate cut.
