Reducing costs incurred in tackling cold corrosion.
Cold corrosion increases acidity within cylinder liners.
Alkaline lubricant oil can tackle this. But you have to get it right...
Parker Kittiwake’s LinerSCAN, used by companies including AP Moller-Maersk Group, Hapag Lloyd, Ernst Russ and Reederei F. Laeisz, informs feed rate reduction
and helps achieve maximum penetration of the lubrication safety buffer.
For more information on tackling cold corrosion with feed rate optimisation visit www.kittiwake.com
The cost of non-optimal lubrication Over-lubrication of a cylinder lube can cost $100,000
Under-lubricate and risk cold corrosion:
Average insurance claim for unexpected liner loss
$250,000
Feed rate optimisation: identifying how much cylinder lube oil injection can be reduced to achieve
optimum operating conditions
A 0.1 g/kWh reduction in cylinder oil dosage represents a significant yearly saving- up to $30,000
In these efficiency conscious times...
Often four times the normal level of required lubricant is used.
