Industry Database

Total Lubmarine has launched a feed rate optimisation programme designed to enable ship operators to monitor the condition of their engines to prevent corrosion and wear as well as deliver reduced levels of lube consumption and operating expenses.

Tailored for the latest generation of two stroke marine diesel engines, the programme will comprise the analysis of lube, drain and system oils.

“This service goes well beyond spot testing and allows each customer to anticipate any future problems as well as create a unique engine specific lubricant strategy under the guidance of our skilled engineers,” said Total Lubmarine OEM relationships manager, Nikolaos Kotakis.

The global marine lubricant supplier created the programme to meet customers’ requirement for a sophisticated approach to long-term engine maintenance and as part of the service customers are provided with regular engine-specific reports.

The programme will be combined with Total Lubmarine’s Diagomar Plus laboratory-based lube oil analysis.

Mr Kotakis added: “Achieving the right levels two stroke engine cylinder lubrication is about combining many different operating parameters under the guidance of a lube expert. Modern engines are particularly sensitive to corrosive wear and both under and over lubrication can cause expensive damage.”

Currently being trialled on board a range of ships, the programme is expected to have a full roll-out this summer.
