In this paper, which was presented at a symposium in Geneva, the Author discusses in some detail a number of matters that affect the maintenance of engine lubricating-oils in good condition in ships' systems. The matters examined include: contamination and sediment build-up; full-flow filtration; by-pass cleaning; centrifuging and filtration; foaming and air entrainment; oil-pump suction and pump seals; water emulsions; bacteria system oil-tank design; the painting of engine interiors; and system flushing in new ships. A number of recommendations are made. Order from: BSRA as No. 47, 780.
