Marine vessels rely on lubricating oil to keep their engines running smoothly and efficiently. However, excessive lube oil consumption can lead to increased costs, decreased efficiency, and higher emissions.
At Hans Jensen Lubricators, we understand the fine balance between reducing lube oil consumption while maintaining optimal engine performance. By reducing emissions and lube oil consumption, marine engine owners and operators can improve their environmental footprint, lower operating costs, and enhance overall performance.
In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of reducing lube oil consumption and how it can help reduce emissions.
The importance of reducing lube oil consumption
Reducing lube oil consumption is critical for several reasons. Firstly, there is the perspective of reducing operational cost. Then there is the matter of reducing emissions originating from the combustion process inside the cylinder. Another reason is the decrease in waste oil produced by marine vessels, which can have a harmful impact on the environment.
How Hans Jensen Lubricators’ technology reduce lube oil consumption by up to 60%
A unique feature of Hans Jensen Lubricators is the ability to inject fresh cylinder lube oil during each piston stroke to reduce wear and corrosion. The dosage of oil is adjusted for optimal effect and typically there is a significant reduction in lube oil consumption – sometimes up to 60% savings.
The added benefit of reduced emissions
Our technology reduces particulate matter emission in particular. Black carbon is generated during the combustion process, and we are able to reduce particle emission by up to 50%. Lower CO2 emission is another benefit that comes when optimizing lubrication. All-in-all, this helps marine vessels meet emissions regulations and reduce their environmental impact.
