New Lubricant Minimizes Risk of Cold Corrosion
Wednesday, December 04, 2013

Marine lubricant provider, Total Lubmarine today launched its latest product, TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100. The lubricant is designed to reduce the risk of cold corrosion in Mark 8.1 and newer marine engines, as well as electronically controlled engines.

Following the latest guidance from certain engine manufacturers on how to effectively manage severe cold corrosion, TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100 supports the technical changes made to the latest generation of engines.

In an effort to reduce fuel oil consumption and reduce emissions, new engines have been designed with lower rotations per minute, longer strokes and increased scavenge and combustion pressures. These factors, along with the use of heavy fuel oils of varying quality and sulphur levels, can cause cold corrosion, leading to rapid and excessive wear if left untreated.

TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100 builds on the modern chemistry of Total Lubmarine’s pioneering single-oil, TALUSIA UNIVERSAL. It will provide operators with all the associated benefits, including increased neutralization efficiency in extreme conditions and better control of deposit build-up in case of less severe conditions.

 “With the introduction of TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100, we are ensuring our customers have a choice of lubricants and can easily adhere to the latest recommendations from engine manufacturers,” said Norbert Schieren, director, Total Lubmarine. “Although these new engines currently represent just 10 per cent of the market, we appreciate that demand is growing. Our customers using new generation engines have welcomed the introduction of TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100 and its availability in major ports worldwide.”

TALUSIA UNIVERSAL 100 is available in ports worldwide including Singapore, Europoort, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Busan, Ulsan, UAE ports, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, Houston, New Orleans and Gibraltar.
