Total Lubmarine has launched a new product designed to improve the performance and protection of medium-speed engines, while achieving savings on maintenance and operational costs.
The new lubricant, Aurelia TI facilitates performance in terms of cleanliness, particularly for the engine piston under-crown, and thus offers enhanced protection of the engine itself.
Aurelia TI has been tested on a wide variety of vessels and diesel power plant , including cruise ships, ferries, and tugs. The key to Aurelia TI’s performance is its high viscosity and BN control, which ensures that the lubricant’s quality is maintained for a longer period of time than is the case with other products. Aurelia TI is specifically formulated to operate effectively under severe conditions, using a combination of diverse detergent chemistry which helps maintain a high level of performance while extending the life of the oil, thus reducing the frequency of required oil changes.
Extensive field trials have confirmed that Aurelia TI is suitable for use with demanding, highly rated medium-speed diesel engines. In addition, it will be capable of meeting technological advances and new restraints which will be even more stringent than those of today – for example, new designs of engine, and the Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems that will be needed to achieve compliance with future emissions standards and which will reduce the level of NOx emissions.
Aurelia TI is available in a range of base numbers to meet individual engine specifications, and has been approved by all major medium-speed diesel engine manufacturers.
