MARINE LUBRICANTS: HOW TO KEEP ABREAST OF DIESEL ENGINE DEVELOPMENTS AND REQUIREMENTS

The authors describe the approach used by their company to develop lubricants that exceed the performance and maintenance requirements of the latest low and medium speed diesel engines and that provide some additional margin for future needs over several years. They confine themselves to the specific aspect of wear control. The discussion makes clear the importance of defining representative laboratory tests and techniques and the advantages to be derived from the use of sophisticated techniques for accurate and reliable assessment of cylinder liner and piston ring wear in actual engines at sea.
