Reducing the need to add supplementary inhibitors to coolant decreases operating costs, increases reliability and reduces environmental impact
Total Lubmarine has introduced an innovative coolant onto the market with patented carboxylate technology. Total Lubmarine claims WT Supra Coolant is an environmentally friendly inhibitor concentrate that delivers extended service life and superior corrosion protection.
“We offer a solution to help increase operating performance and protection for both engine manufacturers and operators alike, and which gives complete assurance on their engine performance,” said Total Lubmarine global brand manager Stuart Fuller. “We are delighted with WT Supra’s proven coolant performance and corrosion inhibitors. It is approved by more than 10 major engine designers which gives the market confidence in the quality and suitability of our product technology and what it can deliver for the marine and power generation industries.”
The coolant is formulated using unique organic technologies and the product has been designed for use in marine 2-stroke, 4-stroke and stationary engines as well as smaller, high-speed auxiliary engines.
“WT Supra Coolant contains none of the inorganic ingredients, such as phosphates, nitrates, amines, boron or silicates, typically found in other coolants,” said Mr Fuller. “We have developed an advanced solution that reduces the need for frequent waste disposal and provides added protection to the environment with non-polluting properties. It uses the latest organic technology, delivering high performance and extended service life to equipment, reducing overall maintenance costs.”
Total Lubmarine claims the science behind WT Supra Coolant provides:
Mr Fuller said “Unlike other coolants on the market, with WT Supra Coolant there is no need to introduce supplementary additives because there is minimal depletion of the coolant’s active ingredients.”
“It is in essence a ’fill-for-life’ product, which saves on regular maintenance and costly downtime especially when correct top-up procedures are followed. We’ve been delighted with the laboratory tests and the on-site operations using diesel and gas engines. As part of this analysis we carry out ageing tests that are conducted under more severe conditions compared to those commonly used in the industry. Results have shown that the organic inhibitors used in WT Supra Coolant provide optimal results even at high running temperatures due to its strong anti-corrosion and anti-cavitation protectors.”
Mr Fuller highlighted “We have also introduced an onboard laboratory kit, Tech Care Coolant, specifically optimised for the WT Supra Coolant product. Alongside our existing laboratory analysis services, we have also introduced the Diagomar Coolant analysis service.”
Reducing the application of further additives in engine coolant is a small but significant step in the optimisation process.
