Oil companies are taking diverse approaches to the question of the different cylinder lubrication needs of two-stroke engines running high or low suplhur fuels, and those changing between high and low sulphur fuel, such as when entering or leaving ECAs.
With the 0.1% fuel sulphur cap entering into force in ECAs on 1 January 2015, owners need to be prepared. The new rules are now less than three years away, and there is still some confusion.
Castrol Marine has launched Cyltech 80 AW, an 80BN cylinder oil developed for two-stroke crosshead engines to match engine performance with the demands of varying sulphur fuels and the impact of slow steaming.
Castrol Marine has spoken on the latest recommendations to ship-owners from MAN Diesel & Turbo, supporting Castrol’s advice that misapplication of mid-range base number (BN) cylinder oils can cause corrosion.
Castrol Marine has welcomed new guidance from Wärtsilä that undermines claims that mid-range base number (BN) oils represent a single cylinder oil solution for marine 2-stroke engines.
Castrol Marine says that it has developed a completely new cylinder oil in response to corrosion issues in modern two-stroke engines, particularly relating to slow steaming.
In terms of cylinder lubricants, cold corrosion is an issue that is currently giving cause for concern among many ship operators whose fleet includes modern two-stroke powered vessels.
BP Marine and Castrol have said that the two brands, both part of the BP group, will now consolidate their marine lubrication product offerings under the Castrol brand.
The controversial question of which base number cylinder lubricant should be used in large two stroke engines is being turned on its head once again as oil suppliers and engine designers come to terms with the effects of using fuels of very low sulphur content.
