Marine Diesel 15W-40 is an SAE 15W-40, semi-synthetic, mid ash marine diesel engine oil formulated with a carefully selected blend of high performance additives and a mix of mineral and synthetic base oils to provide complete protection for marine engines. It exceeds the requirements of API CI-4 and ACEA E4/E7 industry standards and also meets many marine engine manufacturers’ performance specifications, including long oil drain requirements.
Penrite's new marine range has the right product for the right application whether you fish the estuaries or roam the open ocean. Our new range of marine oils and lubricants, have you covered.
Marine Diesel 15W-40 is designed for use in moderate to severe service, high speed and some medium speed four stroke European, U.S. and Japanese marine diesel engines, where a 15W-40 engine oil is required. It can be used in both turbocharged and naturally aspirated engines running either low or high sulphur diesel fuel. It is especially suited to coastal and fishing fleets but can also be used in recreational craft.
Marine Diesel 15W-40 is formulated with additive technology that is highlighted by the inclusion of special corrosion inhibitors as well as a high TBN (Total Base Number) content, allowing it to be able to achieve long oil drain requirements while providing outstanding engine protection for the life of the oil drain. It will provide excellent protection of engine components and resistance to oil thickening due to soot build up as well as start-up wear protection of the engine valve train.
Marine Diesel 15W-40 can be used in marine engines manufactured by Caterpillar (except for 3600 series), Cummins, Iveco (except C13 ENT M77), MAN, Mercedes Benz, MTU, Perkins, Scania, Volvo and many others.
Marine Diesel 15W-40 is not suitable for use with petrol powered engines
