Taro Special HT 55
Taro® Special HT 55 is recommended for lubricating the cylinders of all crosshead-type marine diesel engines using lower sulphur fuel (2% to max 3.5% sulphur) and operating at high specific power outputs and high thermal loads. Running on lower sulphur fuel requires the reduction of base introduced into the cylinder. This can be achieved by optimizing the oil feed rate or selecting a diesel cylinder lubricant that has been specially optimized to a lower base number.
Taro® Special HT 55 has been approved by MAN Diesel & Turbo for use in large diesel engines and by Wartisila for use in OEM specific engines.
Ensures protection against excessive cylinder liner and piston ring wear, thus allowing prolonged service intervals.
Prevents ring sticking and minimizes deposit formulation throughout the combustion chamber exhaust areas.
Excellent Lubrication Properties
Maintains an oil film under severe, high load conditions, thereby reducing frictional wear and preventing scuffing of liners, pistons and rings.
Completely stable at all ambient temperatures. Will not separate or deteriorate in long term storage.
Fully miscible and compatible with single-phase alkaline diesel cylinder lubricants generally known to the international marine trade.
