Viscocity Measurements

Being able to test viscosity oil on board is of great value. Both for spot testing bunker oil such as HFO and lubrication oil, but also continuous measurements in fuel line systems greatly improves the ability to operate a vessel optimally. The viscosity will greatly impact the fuels efficiency and ensuring that the oil is heated correctly to obtain the optimal viscosity, will help in engine operation optimization. Periodic measurements of the viscosity help avoid critical deterioration of the lubricating ability of the lube oil. Whether you are measuring dynamic viscosity (mPaS and cP) or kinematic viscosity (cm2/s and cSt), we have an instrument that can help you.

 

 

Monitoring the viscosity and density of your fuel oil is very important to prevent engine damage and reducing the cost of maintenance.

A novel and patented viscometer designed for On-Site use. Suitable for testing and monitoring the viscosity of fuel and oil unheated to 40°C, lubes and fuels heated to 40 °C or 50 °C, for many industrial applications, eg. diesel engines, gas and aviation turbines, gear boxes, hydraulics and marine fuels. Rating combustion performance.
