Following the recent launch of Infineum M8040 additive package, UK-based Infineum announced that it has received a Main No-objection Letter (NOL) from MAN Energy Solutions (MAN ES) for another newly formulated category II single oil solution โ€“ Infineum M7095 with Infineum performance booster additive package for two-stroke engines running on low sulphur fuel oil (<0.5% S).

โ€œMAN 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,โ€ said Louise Renouf, Large Engine Technology manager, Infineum.

The new additive package offers vessel operators greater operational efficiency and supply chain simplicity, reducing the complexity of the operations as it is a single oil solution, Infineum said. 

Infineum M7095, an approved 20BN marine diesel cylinder oil additive package by the major industry OEMs, can now be combined with Infineumโ€™s performance booster additive package to meet 40BN MAN category II lubricant requirements.

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 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 reduces 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.
