passenger & ro-ro vessels – hydraulics

Every passenger vessel has hydraulic systems for winches, ramps, elevators etc. The hydraulic systems have to be kept free from particles, water and varnish to function perfectly. The hydraulic systems are a key part of the operation on passenger vessel, and they must work at all time to avoid off-hire.

Winches, ramps, elevators etc. can fail if the oil is not clean and dry. The hydraulic oil in the system will be contaminated with particles, condensation water and oxidation residues, which could lead to malfunctioning valves, and pumps. Systems are typically idle for a long period, and when taken into use, you can experience sticking valves caused by oxidation residues, resulting in malfunction. Existing filters do not remove oxidation residues, and this can prevent operation of ramps, winches or elevators. If remote valves are not working it could prevent ballast and fuel transfer between tanks. 

Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters

  • Protect your investment and reduce risk of off-hire
  • Ensure availability of ramps, winches, elevators etc.
  • Optimise efficiency of the passenger vessel during operation
  • Reduce risk of hydraulic system repairs
  • Reduced maintenance costs

When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on your hydraulic system, you ensure perfect operation of winches, ramps, elevators etc. You get an oil filter with excellent dirt, water and oxidation removal capacities, and the highest dirt holding capacity. This gives you cost savings and better reliability of the system, and a high efficiency of your passenger vessel. 

Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil clean, dry and without oxidation residues, which is documented over many years and in several hydraulic system installations. CJC® Oil Filter solutions are installed with many shipowners worldwide. 

When you choose CJC® Oil Filters, you ensure a long lifetime of the hydraulic system, reduce maintenance and you avoid unplanned breakdowns. You can even monitor the condition of your system using the Oil Contamination Monitor.
