Delivering trust around the clock for the Marine Industry Delivering trust around the clock for the Marine Industry

The maritime industry, a cornerstone of global trade and commerce, faces numerous challenges in today’s world. From stringent environmental regulations to the persistent pursuit of operational efficiency, the industry has never been more focused on understanding the importance of marine oil and lubricants, especially since studies have shown statistically that most engine propulsion failures are mainly brought about by poor fuel quality. Besides engine parts, other units, like turbochargers and boilers, are also affected by the low-grade fuel oil. This is where Caltex Middle East’s range of marine products can make a monumental difference to the marine industry. Take, for instance, the Delo 1000 Marine Engine Oil.  


What makes Delo 1000 Marine relevant to the future of today’s Marine industry? 

This Marine and Stationary Diesel engine oil with its lower alkaline reserve (12 Base Number) trunk piston engine oil (TPEO) is designed for use in medium-speed trunk piston engines burning distillate fuels with sulfur content up to 1.5% in marine or stationary service. To understand how Delo Marine 1000 works towards delivering trust around clock, here are some of its features:


Power output maintenance: The detergent/dispersant additive system of Delo 1000 delivers control of high temperature deposits in areas such as the under crown of the piston and the piston ring belt area, enabling piston rings to function efficiently. 


Prolonged oil life: If, as a marine operator, you are plagued by constant wear and tear, then take relief in Delo 1000 Marine’s Base Number (BN) level and superior alkalinity retention characteristics that maintain adequate BN to ensure corrosive acids formed by the combustion of fuel sulfur are effectively neutralized, thereby minimizing liner wear.


Efficient purifying system performance: Additionally, Delo Marine 1000’s excellent water separation characteristics enable water to be centrifuged out with essentially no loss of additive. 


In all, ship owners and operators must recognize the significance of selecting high-quality lubricants like Delo 1000 Marine that not only meet industry standards but also contribute to the overall sustainability and success of the maritime sector.
