rigs & drillships – engine diesel

Diesel oils are used on rigs and drill-ships, primarily in the engines that are the power producer, which supply all the drilling equipment and DP system with power. Clean diesel is essential for operation, especially for common rail designs, since much finer tolerances in injectors and feed pumps are being applied. Keeping diesel clean and free from water in the settling tank and the day tank is key to achieving a good performance of the engine.

Diesel bugs in the tank can be a major problem if diesel is not kept dry. Lifetime of injectors and fuel pumps especially with common rail tier 3 engines can be drastically reduced. At the end of the day, if you do not keep the diesel dry, then you risk dead ship due to blocked filters and damage injectors, because of diesel bugs multiplying.

Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters

  • Keep your engines running and avoid dead ship
  • Optimise availability of the drilling rigs and vessels
  • Reduce risk of diesel bugs
  • Increase lifetime of injectors and fuel pumps.
  • Reduced maintenance costs

When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on your engine diesel system, you get an oil filter with excellent water and particle removal and the highest dirt holding capacity. This gives you cost savings and better reliability of the engine, and a high efficiency of your vessel. 

Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil clean and dry with a minimum of maintenance, which is documented over many years and in several drilling rigs and drill-ships diesel engine 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 and you avoid dead ship due to blocked filters.
