Marine engine lubrication made compact
Lube oil quality impacts engine lifetime. Efficient oil cleaning is crucial for minimizing marine engine wear and damage, and for ensuring consistent operation at peak performance. The inevitable changes in fuel types after 2020 make it necessary to reassess lube oil strategy.DATE 2019-06-20
There are still many unanswered questions regarding the impact the 2020 sulphur cap will have on marine engine lubrication systems. However, evidence suggests that the use of a centrifugal separator, to remove contaminants from the lube oil, will continue to promote engine longevity and efficiency, regardless of the fuel oil used.
The compact, low-maintenance Alfa Laval MIB series centrifugal separation systems are excellent for purifying or clarifying lubricating oil on smaller vessels. Featuring new designs and materials that improve performance and usability, they help reduce maintenance hours and boost oil system reliability.
