Lubmarine will launch a new genera- tion of clean lubricants for medium- speed engines and high stress applica- tions, which will be available this month. The new range, Aurelia XL, has been formulated using the latest additive technology to cope with the increasingly demanding environment of modern marine engines.

The new clean formula is designed to reduce ring sticking and breakage, which contributes to a longer engine life. The lubricant offers superior pro- tection of all engine parts against corro- sion due to Aurelia XL's high BN.

Aurelia XL has been developed for use in medium speed main propulsion and auxiliary trunk piston diesel engines in both marine and power plant applica- tions. It is also suitable for use in tur- bochargers, geared transmissions, oil filled stern tubes and variable pitch pro- pellers and other deck equipment requir- ing a SAE 30 or 40-grade oil.

Aurelia XL is available in SAE 30 and 40 grades and in a range of BNs with the major grades being BN 30. BN40 and
