rigs & drillships – engine 4-stroke lube

The piston rings, cylinder liners, crankshaft bearings, and LO pumps of offshore engines all have lubrication systems that keep them running smoothly. Because of ever-smaller tolerances, the lubrication oil must be kept free from particles, soot, residues and water for the engine to run smoothly and to decrease the wear on components.

If the oil is not properly cleaned and dried, then you risk having short intervals between oil changes. If contaminants are not removed then the wear on components will be higher, and the main or auxiliary engine will not function perfectly. Eventually, this can lead to reduced efficiency and higher maintenance costs and ultimately lost production resulting from engine break down. 

Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters

  • Protect your investment
  • Optimise efficiency of the drilling rig and vessel
  • Increase interval between oil changes
  • Reduce handling of waste oil
  • Reduce risk of ME or aux repairs and wear on bearings

When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on your drilling rigs and drilling vessel 4-stroke engine lube system, you can increase intervals between oil changes. You will experience less wear on bearings and other oil-wetted parts. Compared to conventional oil cleaning methods, waste oil will be less so you will have less sludge handling, which gives you cost savings.

Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil clean, dry and with less soot residues, which is documented over many years and in drilling rigs and ships 4-stroke engine lube installations. CJC® Oil Filter solutions are installed with many ship- and rig owners worldwide. 

When you choose CJC® Oil Filters, you ensure a long lifetime of the engine, reduce maintenance, sludge and you avoid unplanned breakdowns.
