passenger & ro-ro vessels – thrusters and water jets
Passenger ships are equipped with tunnel thrusters, Azimut thrusters, Azipods or water jets, which are used for propulsion and mooring your vessel. Ensuring perfect propulsion and mooring operation can only be achieved if your thrusters work at all time and you work to achieve a high reliability.
Thruster seals, bearings and gears are at risk of being damaged if hydraulic and lubrication oil is not kept free from seawater, particles and oxidation residues, and this can cause the system to fail. Water ingress happens through propeller seals due to damage, wear seal pumping and movement of the shaft, and seawater causes corrosion and increases wear rate on bearings and gears.
Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters
- Protect your investment – ensure manoeuvrability of your passenger ship
- Avoid off-hire
- Optimise efficiency
- Reduce risk of costly thruster or water jet repairs
- Reduced costly replacement of EAL oils
When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on the thruster or water jet oil systems, you get an oil filter with excellent water, dirt and oxidation removal capacities, and the highest dirt holding capacity. This gives you cost savings and better reliability of the thruster.
Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil dry, clean, and without oxidation residues, which is documented over many years and in several thruster installations. CJC® Oil Filter solutions are installed with many shipowners worldwide.
When you choose CJC® Oil Filters, you ensure a long lifetime of the thruster, reduce maintenance and you avoid unplanned breakdowns. You can even monitor the condition of your system using the Oil Contamination Monitor.
For thruster systems on passenger ferry or Ro-Ro ship, you can select between below solutions:
- CJC® Filter Separator, PTU
- CJC®Desorber/Filter Combi Unit
- with or without CJC® Oil Condition Monitor, OCM15
The CJC® System solutions fit all sizes of thrusters and water jets – new or old, and we deliver globally where required. In close co-operation with technical organizations, we help select the most fitting solution depending on system type and conditions in the environment.
