MFAME published an interesting update from TOTAL where it launched a new cylinder oil which could suit any sulphur fuel (from 0% to 3.5%). Now here is one more interesting piece of information where Lukoil has announced about the two new lubes with improved additive formulation:
- Navigo 6 CO – A crankcase oil.
- Navigo 70 MCL AW – A cylinder oil.
With newly designed additive packages, both products offer additional benefits with regard to thermal and oxidation stability, corrosion prevention and wear protection, the company claimed. Lukoil said that it had been focusing its research and development activities during the last two years on enhancing its standard crankcase and cylinder oil portfolio.
NAVIGO 70 MCL AW is a cylinder oil for marine 2-stroke engines, covering several applications and fuel sulphur contents of between 0.5% and 3.5%. The new cylinder oil is based on the same additive technology that has proven successful for NAVIGO 100 MCL. As the new formulation offered increased engine protection against cold corrosion and enabled extended piston overhaul, the name of the original product, NAVIGO 70 MCL, was extended by adding ‘AW’ for ‘Anti-Wear’.
NAVIGO 6 CO is a crankcase oil developed by Lukoil for latest design 2-stroke engines. “Our customers benefit from the improved formulation with enhanced detergency and dispersion and improved crankcase cleanliness and deposit control of oil-cooled piston under crowns,” explained Stefan Claussen, Lukoil Marine Lubricants technical and marketing director.
The crankcase oil is also claimed to be perfectly suited for Lukoil Marine’s on board unit for intelligent cylinder oil lubrication, the patented iCOlube. This unit combines high BN cylinder oil with new or used system oil to tailor the ideal cylinder oil for each engine. Additional benefits include the reduction in the number of cylinder oil grades that a vessel needs to store on board plus safe, easy and efficient engine operation for the crew.
Both lubricants have been extensively tested and approved by all major OEMs, the company said.
