Total Lubmarine offers custom engine oil analysis

ADVERTISEMENT

London-based Total Lubmarine is introducing a feed rate optimization program tailored for the latest generation of two-stroke marine diesel engines through the combined and regular analysis of lube, drain and system oils.

The program is designed to give ship operators a complete and ongoing picture of the condition of their engines to prevent corrosion and wear, as well as deliver reduced levels of lube consumption and operating expenses.

“This service goes well beyond spot testing and allows each customer to anticipate any future problems as well as create a unique engine-specific lubricant strategy under the guidance of our skilled engineers,” Total Lubmarine OEM Relationships Manager Nikolaos Kotakis said in a news release.

The new service will consist of a regular analysis of drain and system oil by Total Lubmarine engineers and will be combined with Total Lubmarine’s Diagomar Plus laboratory-based lube oil analysis, which examines residual BN, kinematic viscosity, insolubles, water content, PQ index, oxidation, iron and other metal content. Customers are provided with regular engine-specific reports.
