MARINE LCX is a marine cylinder lubricant designed for use in the direct-injection quills of large crosshead marine diesel engines. It is a combination of quality, paraffinic base oils that have a high natural Viscosity Index (VI), a very high alkaline metallic detergent, and an effective ashless dispersant.
Marine Engine Oils
MARINE MTX – Medium Speed Marine Diesel Oil
MARINE MTX is premium oil designed for the lubrication of the medium-speed trunk type diesel engines in marine service. These oils are blended from top quality paraffinic base oils for their stability and high natural Viscosity Index (VI). They provide an optimum balance of detergency, oxidation and corrosion resistance, water tolerance and wear prevention.
MARINE LSX – Premium Marine Engine Oil
MARINE LSX is premium oil designed for the lubrication of the crankcase of large, low-speed, crosshead engines used in marine vessel applications. Crosshead engines differ from trunk engines in that the connecting rod, between the piston and the crankshaft, is hinged in the middle. This allows the top part of the connecting rod, along with the piston, to experience purely vertical motion, with no side-to-side forces, effectively eliminating uneven wear of the cylinder walls. For lubrication, this arrangement also allows the piston-cylinder area to be separate from the crankcase of the engine so that the crankcase lubricant does not have to contend with the high levels of contaminating soot and acids that are a feature of the piston-cylinder area. Such oils are called System oils and they lubricate all parts of the engine except the piston-cylinder area, where specialized Cylinder oil is required.
