STARTEC Marine Diesel Engine Oil

Product Description

STARTEC Marine Diesel Engine Oil is trunk piston engine oil designed for use in medium speed diesel engines operating
on distillate fuels. The modern additive technology used in this oil provides superior engine cleanliness & protection. This oil is available in SAE 30 & SAE 40 viscosity grades with a TBN (Total Base Number) of 12. Each grade has got a suffix of 3 digits in which the first digit indicates the SAE grade (e.g. 3 indicate SAE 30 and 4 indicate SAE 40) and the last two digits indicate the TBN. These oils exhibit a high degree of water tolerance and meet the performance requirements of API CF.

Features & Benefits

• Superior detergency ensures piston and crankcase cleanliness
• Improved anti-wear property minimizes engine wear and reduces maintenance costs
• Excellent thermo-oxidative stability retards oil degradation and controls its viscosity
• Reserve TBN ensures protection of engine parts against corrosive combustion products
• Better demulsibility characteristics ensure water separation leading to trouble free operation
• Special rust & corrosion inhibitors prevent corrosion of engine parts in severe salt water environment


  •  Recommended for medium speed engines used in marine, power generation and industrial applications operating on distillate fuels  having sulphur contents up to 1 %. Specially recommended for older engines where liner-lacquer is not a potential problem
  • Oils of appropriate TBN to be chosen based on the sulphur content of fuel used. Follow manufacturers’ recommendation for selection of suitable TBN level/ viscosity grade
  • Also recommended for general lubrication of shipboard equipment where specialized lubricants are not required or use of API CF quality oils are adequate
