Shell Literature Details Benefits Of MVI Lube Oils In Marine Diesels
Taking note of the growing worldwide shortage of suitable crudes from which to refine medium viscosity index (MVI) lube oils, Shell Oil Company has prepared new literature pointing out the historically proven benefits of MVI lube oils for mediumspeed diesel engines, and describing the company's efforts to help alleviate the MVI lube oil shortage for U.S. customers.
Acknowledging the fact that engine manufacturers now have lube oil standards for warranty and service requirements that permit the use of oils with viscosity indexes as high as 100 in recognition of the growing MVI oil shortage, Shell maintains that it should be able to continue to supply premium lube oils in the viscosity index range of 60-70 for the foreseeable future. The literature graphically illustrates operating benefits with engine teardown photographs.
