How you can maximize the life of your oil filling and engines
Lube oil filtration for marine diesel engines: CJC® Marine Lube Oil Filter for two-stroke and four-stroke engines
Lubricant filtration in marine diesel engines with CJC® is just the thing if you …
The challenge: contaminated and quickly ageing lubricant
The lubricant of marine diesel engines is loaded differently, depending on whether it is a four-stroke or two-stroke *). In principle, however, the entry of impurities into the lubricant is unavoidable: particles, water and blow-by gases enter the lubrication system as a result of combustion and wear processes, environmental conditions (temperature changes, climate zones, etc.) and during repairs and cleaning work. Impurities accelerate oil oxidation and additive degradation and cause early oil decay — even with high-quality and expensive lubricants such as synthetic oil. Since frequent refill and change intervals cost money and pollute the environment, efficient lubricant filtration and sensible fluid management are essential. Contaminated and rapidly aging lubricant has a serious impact on operational safety, availability, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of ship operations.
*) The lubricant of four-stroke engines is usually more heavily loaded because there is only one lubrication system and combustion residues quickly contaminate the entire lubricant source. Two-stroke engines, in comparison, have two separate lubrication systems — one for bearing lubrication and one for cylinder lubrication. Thus, combustion residues do not contaminate the entire lubricant source, and the lubricant for the cylinders remains clean (loss lubrication).
The conventional method
To ensure the reliable operation of the marine diesel engine, the crew regularly checks the condition of the lubricant. When a critical value is reached, they partially replace the lubricant or change the oil completely. However, this does not reduce the load on the lubricant. On the one hand, the newly filled-in oil contaminates within the shortest time due to deposits and dilution with dirty residual oil. On the other hand, impurities, oxidative processes and acids unhindered strain the lubricating properties and the long-term effect of additives, which shortens the service life of the oil filling. That finally results only in high oil consumption. With us, however, this is more ecological and economical.
CJC® Lubricating Oil Filter vs Centrifuges
Due to the enormous savings potential in terms of operating and energy costs, and the lower lubricating oil losses, the CJC® Lube Oil Filter amortizes within the first two years of operation despite the additional installation costs when retrofitting and replacing the centrifuge.
