CDO Total Iron Test

Cold corrosion creates many new challenges for ship operators. While in Ordering Information
the past the selection and dosage of the lubricant was based solely on fuel
sulphur content it is now necessary to take into account a number of new

The severity of the acid condensation on

Patent pending
the cylinder liner wall is influenced by (EP 14 156 620.8)
the following:

Sulphur content of the fuel

High pressure in the combustion
Liner wall temperature

Although slow steaming has dramatically

reduced the problem of abrasive wear
it is still a risk factor and needs to be
monitored. Most common problems for
abrasive wear in cylinder liners are:

Broken or sticking piston rings.

Disruption of the cylinders
lubricating film caused by water.
Presence of CAT fines in the
injected fuel.
Residue of calcium ash and carbon
from burned cylinder lubricant or
incomplete combustion.
