Infineum expands its single oil category II solutions for MAN B&W two-stroke engines

Sustainable Transportation - 1 June 2022

New combination of Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package delivers proven cleanliness, protection, and wear rate capabilities, meeting the needs of MAN Energy Solutions category II lubricants for two-stroke engines operating on low sulphur fuels (<0.5% S).

Following the recent launch of Infineum M8040 additive package, Infineum, global leader in lubricant additives, once again received a Main No-objection Letter (NOL) from MAN Energy Solutions (MAN ES) for another newly formulated category II single oil solution – Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package for two-stroke engines running on low sulphur fuel oil (<0.5% S).

Building on the company’s years of lubricants technical expertise, Infineum M7095, an approved 20BN marine diesel cylinder oil additive package by the major industry OEMs, can now be combined with Infineum’s performance booster additive package to meet 40BN MAN category II lubricant requirements.

Infineum has completed rigorous field testing, accumulating 3,200 running hours on a vessel operating on VLSFO (<0.5% S) fitted with a 6G60ME-C9.5 engine, in addition to a field test of 1,500 running hours on a vessel running on distillate fuel (DMA <0.1% S) fitted with a 6S35ME-B9.5 engine and a pre-screening test.

These multiple tests validated that Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package delivers improved overall cleanliness capabilities versus a 100BN category II (Cat II) cylinder oil for two-stroke Mark 9 engines and higher. Its detergent and dispersant capabilities control deposit build-up, which reduce wear rate on pistons and liners, and keep engines working for longer. Higher engine efficiency will lead to reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package is an option without the need for bright stock in the formulation to provide customers with more alternatives to suit their supply chain operations.

MAN Cat II introduction increased the focus on detergency, dispersancy and thermal stability. Our deep formulation understanding and experience in bench, engine screeners and field delivery, have enabled us to deliver strong product performance in this challenging operational environment. The achievement of this approval once again proves that we can provide our customers with superior technology solutions. It ensures that customers are well positioned for future, lower carbon fuels and lower base number (BN), leading to lower ash, gives improved cleanliness in an increasingly stringent regulatory world.

This new additive package will also offer vessel operators greater operational efficiency and supply chain simplicity, reducing the complexity of the operations as it is a single oil solution. The combination also has a comparable piston cleanliness of a 100BN Cat II cylinder oil at the same feed rate but with a lower BN. This helps optimization of lubricant consumption while lowering emissions.

Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package is available to order now.
