Description

In any diesel engine, whether it’s in a motorcycle or on an ocean-going vessel, corrosion can be a major problem. One of the ways in which corrosion can occur is via the presence of acid, and if this isn’t monitored and dealt with it can quickly lead to major damage. The resultant repairs, not to mention the downtime, can be serious.

One of the most effective allies in the battle against acidic corrosion is a reliable and accurate Base Number (BN) Analysis. Marine Testing Solutions supply both an Electronic BN Test Kit and, for cylinder drain oil in two-stroke crosshead engines, an Electronic CDO BN Test Kit.

Both of these products will provide you with vital information in regard to the presence of acids, and therefore the performance of the engine. If an acidic build-up is taking place, you can perform preventative maintenance rather than wait for more serious issues to occur at a later date.
