CASE: “K” Line Buld Shipping

”K” Line Bulk Shipping chose Hans Jensen Lubricator’s solutions for 10 sister vessels and reduced lube oil consumption significantly.

”K” Line Bulk Shipping experienced above average lube oil consumption and bought the HJ Lubtronic 2.0 SIP system for a total of 10 vessels.

Feed rates of 0.5 g/kWh have been achieved since installation on both MC and ME engines, while also improving the cylinder condition.
