The heavy duty diesel engines that power many marine applications operate in a uniquely demanding environment and are continually exposed to harsh oceanic conditions that create multiple opportunities for lubricant contamination and component wear to occur.
Monitoring fluids with oil analysis, coolant analysis and fuel analysis will ensure peak performance and extend equipment life and reliability.
Routine oil analysis monitors the condition of both the lubricant (contamination) and individual machine components (wear). Coolant analysis monitors changes in coolant properties, due to chemical reactions occurring within the cooling system, before they escalate to failure. It also identifies coolant mixing and deficiencies in cooling system maintenance practices.
Testing fuel deliveries can reduce operational expenses and ensure satisfactory ignition and combustion, compatibility with fuel injection systems and convenient handling at all levels without degradation or contamination.
Bureau Veritas offers multiple levels of fluid testing and analysis and can develop test slates specific to application and equipment type.
