With the advent of low sulphur fuels, the focus has shifted from concern about acids attacking the lube oil, to deposit control, and the ability of the oil to deal with the higher temperatures and wear which occurs on modern engines where the pressures are higher putting the liner interfaces under more stress. The Parker Ferrous Wear Meter is an easy to use portable analyser which enables you to quickly spot any deterioration in your machine condition, thereby allowing you to take corrective action before serious damage occurs. The equipment is rugged and simple to use and is suitable for all marine applications such as cylinder scrape-down oil, gearboxes and bearings.  The FWM can also measure the oil content in grease and has a USB port to export the data.

The fluid condition sensor is an in-line multi-parameter sensor monitoring fuel, hydraulic oil and lube oil quality including conductivity, permittivity, moisture, temperature and pressure. By tracking both the electrical conductivity and relative permittivity, the FCS can detect fuel dilution, a common problem in four stroke engines, as well as soot ingress and oil contamination. When combined with the FCS Alert alarm, operators have a continuous monitoring tool to help guard against engine failure. The FCS is suitable for use on diesel large diesel engines, industrial gearboxes, gas turbines, turbochargers and hydraulic systems.

Oil purification

Wågene Purifiner can extend the lifetime of any amount of lubricating oil by 10 to 15 times with a quick return on investment. With a simple cotton filter construction, Wågene Purifiner has the lowest operating costs and is the most reliable technology of its kind. To date, over 3,000 units have been delivered worldwide. With the price of oil, and the challenges faced by operators of meeting tightening maritime legislation regarding waste and pollution, it is reassuring to know that substantial environmental and cost savings can be achieved with immediate effect. The unit is approximately 45 kilograms in weight, plugs into a standard electrical power supply, and can be carried safely by two people. The flexibility of the unit means that it can used to clean the lubricating oil in a sterntube assembly whilst it is being worked on simultaneously by an engineer.

Fuel analysis, quality and compatibility checking

The need to meet the demand for low sulphur fuels has led to an increase in blending.  This, in turn, has led to a significant increase in the problem of fuel compatibility.  Where fuels, which are not compatible are mixed, this may led to separation, stratification and sludging. 40% of the participants in a recent webinar said that they had experienced incompatibility issues. The compatibility tester will quickly identify potential fuel stability problems. It will also rapidly determine if a fuel is compatible with existing fuel stocks. Prevent sludge deposits, failure of fuel-handling systems and costly combustion-related engine damage. Identify possible stability problems before mixing fuel, giving you peace of mind when accepting fuel deliveries.

The XRF is a lightweight, portable and self-contained spectrometer, which can analyse the levels of sulphur in your fuel within three minutes to lab testing standards. With this equipment your crew can verify the fuel which is being bunkered as it is being bunkered without having to wait for lab results. Perhaps even more importantly it can be used to test the fuel being delivered to the engine after switching fuels when entering a SECA or port in case there has been contamination of compliant fuel with the tank / pipe residues of the previous fuel in the system. The XRF can also be used by port authorities and regulatory surveyors to pin-point non-compliance without the need to wait for laboratory results.   The XRF Analyser combines simplicity with accuracy and near instant results. By allowing test results to be downloaded, or storing them for up to two years, the XRF Analyser also plays an important role in helping vessel operators to manage compliance audits more efficiently.

The need to intensify the refining process to remove the sulphur has led to an increase in the amount of catalysers being used, which in turn has increased the quantity of cat fines found in the fuel. Cat fines can also accumulate during storage reaching much higher levels than in the fuel which has been recently bunkered. The result can be disastrous damage to the engine within a very short space of time. 12% of the participants in a recent webinar said that they had experienced damage on their engines caused by cat fines. The Parker Kittiwake Cat Fines Test Kit is an innovative breakthrough in the early detection of catalytic (cat) fines. In just 15 minutes, the simple onboard test identifies the presence of abrasive silicon and aluminium cat fines, which can cause irreversible damage to a vessel’s fuel system if they become embedded into engine components.  The test is a simple-to-use chemical bottle test which determines the level of cat fines in a representative sample of fuel oil where this level exceeds 60 ppm (Al + Si) and therefore exceeds the limit recommended by ISO 8217:2012.

The Parker Kittiwake Density Meter is suitable for both distillate and residual fuel oils. Fuel is delivered from the bunker barge by volume and confirmed by meter or tape soundings. It is paid for by mass with a conversion relying on an accurate density reading. Measuring the density of fuel using hydrometers, the Density Meter can be used to confirm the quantity and grade of fuel delivered. Density is calculated electronically, giving fast, accurate results and estimating the combustion performance (Calculated Carbon Aromaticity Index or CCAI) and correct viscosity in centipoise (cP) to centistokes (cSt) calculations giving results which have been proven to be as accurate as laboratory methods

Viscosity is often regarded as the most important characteristic of hydraulic, gear, and lubricating oils. The correct viscosity level provides flow resistance, optimum film strength in system clearances, and minimum friction losses and leakage. Viscosity can increase or decrease as a result of problems such as contamination, fuel dilution, and shear thinning. So periodic measurement of viscosity is an essential element in protecting critical components. Testing viscosity can also be used for verifying that the correct grade of fuel is being used, calculating combustion performance, and for adjusting of fuel handling and injection systems.  The Parker Kittiwake Heated Viscometer is a highly rugged and easy-to-use diagnostic device that provides accurate oil viscosity results in minutes for fast onsite maintenance decisions, and is suitable for testing viscosity of both residual fuel and lube oil for a wide variety of applications including diesel engines, gas and aviation turbines, gearboxes, hydraulics, and marine fuels.

LR and DNV-GL type approved bunker sampling rings are available from two to twelve inches in diameter. They are an integral part of the bunkering process in order to ensure that new oils or fuels, which are being bunkered, comply with the industry standards for the order fuel or oil.  The rings ensure that a representative sample of the total fuel delivered is collected during the entire bunkering process. Part of the sample is then sent for laboratory testing whilst the rest is kept for potential use as evidence. The rings are fully manufactured from stainless steel, and all products comply with ISO 3170, BS 3195, ASTM D 4057, ISO TR 13729 Singapore Bunkering Procedure.
