LUBRICATION EFFICIENCY AS MEANS OF REDUCING OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE COST

Operational experience with three tankers powered by two-stroke diesel engines is reported. It was found that the vessels (two with the uniflow scavenging system, one with a loop scavenging system) could be operated from two to four years without overhauling the pistons. Low wear rates and satisfactory cleanliness of major parts were observed as a result of special cylinder and main engine lubricating oils. Order from NSFI as No. 14913.
