Marine Fluid Technology has a strong track record of providing first class, cost-effective, industry leading solutions that are designed to meet our clients’ lubrication needs.
The SEA-Mate® Blending-on-Board System is an Innovative concept compared to conventional lubrication practices. The key difference being that BOB addresses both Crankcase and Cylinder lubrication needs at the same time, without the need to maintain and store multiple lubricant products onboard the vessel.
The SEA-Mate® BOB equipment puts control firmly back into the hands of the operator by providing greater flexibility in terms of their lubricant options to accommodate the many technical challenges faced onboard a modern vessel.
The equipment is designed to produce a finished Cylinder lubricant to a targeted specific Base Number at the flick of a switch. It really is as easy as that, as a lot of time and effort has been invested into making the equipment user friendly and simple to operate.
Benefits from Blending-on-Board:
- Reduce lube-oil consumption up to 40%. For most MAN B&W 2-stroke engines it is possible to achieve 0,6 g/kWh feed regardless of sulphur content, for Wärtsilä 2-stroke engines down to 0,7 g/kWh can be achieved. Standard lubrication settings often result in lube-oil consumption of 1.2 g/kWh or more when running on high-sulphur fuel.
- Fit-for-Purpose base-number assists in solving cold corrosion challenges and reduce liner & piston ring wear.
- Keeps system oil additives fresh and contamination at a minimum- Actively consuming system oil for Blending-on-Board means fresh and active system oil is added to system oil sump with regular intervals. This reduces contamination of oil and thus ensures better lubrication everywhere.
- Proven fuel savings as result of fresh system oil – Actively consuming system oil for Blending-on-Board means no increase in system oil viscosity (friction) over time. Lower system oil friction translates into proven & documented fuel savings up to 1.5%.
