We have highly qualified and skillful Retrofit Pulse Lubrication System(RPLS) installation teams with retrofit experience on numerous vessels.
With only one contact, you can cover your entire retrofit workscope including dismantling of existing systems, piping remake, fitting of new components, electrical work, and recommissioning of new RPLS systems including training of operators.
We miximize the satisfaction of our clients.
RPLS can be installed during normal service hours of the engine and/or at port with no off-hire time
- 15hours engine stand-still for Crank Angle Sensor(CAS) installation
- 7 days sailing with 4men onboard for installation
- 24hours engine stand-still for pre-commissioning, switch over and commissioning
- Short commissioning voyage from port to port for validation and eventual fine-tuning or the system
Alternatively RPLS can also be installed during dry-docking of the vessel.
RPLS reduces Cylinder Oil Consumption(CLO) by 30 to 50 percent leading to a remarkable reduction of total operation costs. The system also quarantees accurate metering and precise injection of CLO into the piston ring package and the environmental benefits of reduction in solid particle emissions due to reduced lube oil consumption.
Installation of the main component includes:
• Pulse lubricating module consisting of a dosage pump with electronically controlled timing
• New lubricator quills
• Filter and measuring system
• Servo oil supply unit
• Control system
• Crank angle sensors
• Pipe & electrical work
• Parameter set in RPLS FlexView software
• Cylinder oil consumption measurement
• Piston/Liner inspection
We offer the full retrofit package including materials, installation, commissioning and crew instructions.
• Optimized cylinder lubrication curve based on the engine power and not on the load indicator only
• Improved specific cylinder oil feed rate
• Reduction of cylinder oil costs & carbon deposits
• Improved reliability and increased safety
• Simple installation, eliminating weak mechanical parts
Modifications of existing system:
• Removal of the mechanical components which control the old load indicator dependent cylinder lubrication system
• Removal of the former control valve
• The new electronic lubrication control system is installed in an engine room mounted cabinet.
• A new proportional valve controlled by the CLU-1E system adjusts the load dependent cylinder oil pump speed.
• The CLU-1E is a stand-alone system, independent from the existing Remote Control System (RCS)
• Engine speed and load indicator signals are used to calculate the actual engine power and the optimal cylinder oil feed rate.
• Carried out when the vessel is in service during normal port stay
You can receive our full support and advice in required layout, installation, commissioning and piping/tank adaptations.
We also offer a range of support services, from operational advice and overall lubrication optimization programs to supply of additives and system oils. The system supply and support services can also be packaged in an Engine Lubrication Management Agreement, which will provide additional guarantees and benefits.
• Lower costs compared to using commercial cylinder oil
• Overall lube oil consumption reduction by re-use of used system oil
• Optimal constant low cylinder oil feed rate by variable BN blending, matching the fuel sulfur content
• Engine cleanliness and reduction of deposits due to regular replenishment of new system oil in main & auxiliary engine
• Optional XRF analyzer: Analysis of HFO for cat fines, fuel sulfur level and all lubricated systems, as well as onboard analysis of used lube oil and fuel oil analysis
What is BOB?
• The BOB system consists of a blender with a control panel and an optional XRF analyzer.
• The BOB produces the cylinder lubricating oil by blending used main engine system oil with additives.
• Instead of purchasing commercial cylinder oil, the operator can use main engine or auxiliary engine system oil and add the additives.
• Some modifications to the existing piping and tank allocation will be necessary (no new tank installations).
• The blended cylinder oil is pumped to the cylinder oil tank or directly to the cylinder oil daily tank.
• BOB is already approved by ABS and Lloyds Register.
• Optimize the overall engine lubrication performance and costs
• Keep constant low cylinder oil feed rate also at high fuel sulfur contents
• Keep the engine clean
You are provide a total service ranging from pre-inspection of the location where the equipment is installed, installation, commissioning, engine performance analysis and NOx emission measurement to trouble shooting.
We can install the upgrade kit for all RTA and RT-flex engines with multiple turbochargers. The modified engine can be operated at any time up to its full installed power for full sea speed.
The installation and commissioning of the upgrade kit can be completed during normal commercial operation of the ship and during normal port calls for the majority of engine types.
• Major savings in fuel costs and a major reduction in BSFC (brake specific fuel consumption)
• Extend the load range of engine for continuous operation
• Prevent the risk of engine fouling and excessive component temperatures in case of continuous operating that is below 50% of engine load
Scope of supply: on a turn-key basis
• Pre-inspection before modification
• Engine performance analysis before and after modification
• Turbocharger shut-off valves, new piping, manifold compensators, cabling, control system and all other parts and materials, including transport to ship
• Installation and commissioning
• NOx emission measurement and certification
Concept of upgrade kit:
• Cutting out a turbocharger when the engine is to be operated at low load
• Increasing of the scavenge air delivery at low load for better combustion and more optimum temperatures of engine components
• Fitting remotely controlled shut off valves on the exhaust duct and air ducts
• Fitting a control system to operate the valves
• RPLS: although not included in the standard scope of supply for the kit, it is highly recommended that the engine is equipped with the Pulse Lubricating System (PLS). This well-proven electronically-controlled cylinder lubrication system will ensure reliable engine operation during prolonged slow steaming.

Since every damage case is unique, our engineers and machining experts assess the damaged components and are able to offer the best combination of repair method:
• Crankshaft post heat treatment in order to lower the hardness of the overheated areas
• Material removal by cutting, which is the safest method to prevent further heating damages of the crankshaft material
• Grinding of radius areas and oil inlet holes
• Superfinish (polishing) of the final surface
Fretting between main bearing shells and girders on large 2-Stroke engines can roughen up the girder surface and complicate the bearing exchange.
We are available to customize the machining basket to any journal size so as to machine or polish the affected girder areas located under the fitted crankshaft.
You can save long auxiliary engine downtimes or minimize off-hire times of your main engines. By machining the crankshaft in place without dismantling it from the engine, the repair time and costs are drastically reduced.
With our many years of experience in crankshaft repairs we can guarantee a desirable result.
All types of crankshafts:

Pre-inspection report of the incoming liner is done to decide wether honing is recommended or not.
After completion of honing, the surface of cylinder liner is carefully inspected and microscopic judgement is taken in order to verify the liner micro structure.
Liner surface roughness parameters Ra, Rpk, Rvk are recorded and compared to the drawing specification.
Careful high pressure cleaning after machining is essential to remove free particles and honing grains from the liner surface and bores.
• Regular honing of 4S liners will result in reduced system oil consumption
• 2-Stroke liners honing is recommended in the case of uneven or sudden wear.
