Not all fuel oils are the same, and every ocean-going vessel may be running on blended fuel oils at any given time. Unfortunately, it’s often the case that mixing causes problems that can prove time-consuming and expensive to deal with.
If there is incompatibility, it could lead to increased sludging, for example, and if it’s not remedied there is a chance of blocked pipes, filters and centrifuge bowls. In the worst case scenarios, the downtime could be substantial.
Thanks to our Oil Compatibility Tester, you can conduct regular on-board testing at a time that suits you. Any indication of incompatibility will give your engineers the chance to nip problems in the bud at an early stage. Testing takes just 20 minutes, thanks to our easy to use device.
