Presented extensive lubricating oil technology obtained during the development of lubricants for high output medium-speed diesels. The oil requirements for present and future high output medium-speed diesels are analyzed with special emphasis on thermal stability, high temperature detergency, load-carrying capability, and oil life. Describes a study of base stock stability in a specially developed Spiral Coker Test and an evaluation of additive thermal stability in a Helix Coker Test.
