On-Site Drain Oil Analysis Kit
On-Site Drain Oil Analysis Kit
By analyzing the scrape-down oil from the scavenge space, shipboard personnel can check the condition of the engine’s cylinders, prevent damage from corrosion or abrasion by taking corrective actions, and detect changes as they happen.

To monitor the wear conditions in an engine, with minimal time lag between sampling and diagnosis of a high-wear situation, on-board test kits are available that can detect abnormal wear and enable the operator to take immediate corrective action to increase the lubricant feed.

The Electronic Drain Oil Analysis Kit includes a BN- and iron test kit that can measure the magnetic and corrosive iron separately and easily. It provides quick results of the drain oil’s most essential properties relative to the engine’s cylinder operating condition.

 Considering this, it becomes evident that a frequent on-site analysis of the most critical parameters is necessary, along with a regular laboratory oil test, if the aim is to reduce the feed rate and limit the risk of a liner wear problem. Besides measuring the remaining alkalinity reserve and other oil condition indicators, such as water and viscosity, in the scrape-down oil, measuring the wear rate if the feed rate is being optimized is crucial. Since there is no fixed optimum, it is necessary to have the possibility to measure the iron content frequently.

Always Remember

  • Onboard oil tests should be used as an essential supplement to the Laboratory Oil Test, which can provide a comprehensive oil analysis.

  • Combining the Laboratory Oil Test and the frequent onboard test is essential for effective cylinder drain oil monitoring.
