tugs – hydraulics and towing winches
The towing winch on a tug is essential for the operation. If hydraulics or towing winches are not working, then you will lose charter.
Condensation water build-up due to short operation cycles, and hot oil will lead to condensation at longer standstill periods. The hydraulic oil will be contaminated with particles and oxidation residues, leading to malfunctioning valves, hydraulic pistons, pumps and motors. Hydraulic equipment is typically idle for a long period, and when taken into use, it is not untypical to experience sticking valves caused by oxidation residues, and then the towing winch will not function perfectly.
Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters
- Protect your investment
- Optimise availability of the tug
- Achieve less wear and longer lifetime of oil
- Reduce risk of costly towing winch and hydraulic repairs
- Reduced maintenance costs
When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on your hydraulic system or towing winch, you make sure your equipment is operational, and that you do not lose charter. You get an oil filter with excellent dirt, water and oxidation removal capacities, and the highest dirt holding capacity.
Technically, CJC® is known for keeping oil clean, dry and without oxidation residues, which is documented over many years and in several tug towing winch and hydraulic installations. CJC® Oil Filter solutions are installed with many shipowners worldwide.
When you choose CJC® Oil Filters, you ensure a long lifetime of the hydraulics and towing winches, increase the lifetime of oil, and reduce maintenance and breakdowns. You can even monitor the condition of your system using the Oil Contamination Monitor.
