MAN approval for Chevron cylinder oils
Chevron Marine Lubricants has received approvals from MAN Energy Solutions for three of its Taro cylinder oils indicating the firm’s confidence in the products.
Two No Objection Letters (NOLs) were received following successful field tests being carried out on a 6S90ME-C8 MAN B&W two-stroke engine using MAN’s Automated Cylinder Oil Mixing (ACOM) system.
“The Taro range of cylinder lubricants provides solutions for the varied range of engines, different fuels and the increasingly complex operating requirements that we are faced with. It also highlights our continued strong working relationship with this leading OEM,” said Ian Thurloway, brand & marketing manager, Chevron Marine Lubricants.
The first NOL demonstrates the high performance of Taro Special HT Ultra, a 140BN product that has achieved impressive results helping combat cold corrosion in slow speed vessels burning high sulphur fuel.
Taro Special HT Ultra is blended with Taro Special HT LF, a 25BN lubricant ideal for low sulphur, distillate and alternative fuel types.
The second NOL allows for blending Taro Special HT 100 (100 BN) and Taro Special HT LF.
Chevron Marine Lubricants is a leading provider of marine products and services, that was among the first to market with both a 100 BN and 140BN cylinder lubricant.
It provides a range of cylinder oils suitable for the majority of two-stroke vessels and engine types, compatible with a wide sulphur range of fuels and most alternative bunker fuels.
