Global monitoring of marine fuels and machine condition
The “Shipping, Marine and Ports World” has published in its Dec 2012-Jan 2013 issue, an article written by Dr. Helene Gutman (CTO, Xenemetrix Ltd.). The article presents: The use of EDXRF analytical method systems that enable fleet management to optimize bunkering and machine maintenance. The new sulfur emission regulations for ocean going vessels present a serious challenge for the maritime industry. Lower sulfur content in the fuel oil causes increased machine wear. Therefore exact and frequent...
New DESMI Smart Boom - Superior Monitoring Boom Technology
The system combines proven DESMI oil spill containment boom with the Boom Guard Monitoring Buoy, an oil pollution monitoring device used to monitor for the presence of oil pollution within the boom containment area. If oil pollution is detected, the buoy transmits an alert via Iridium satellite in real time. The buoy also monitors location and heading and should the SMART BOOM drift, the buoy reports its current location and heading, transmits an alert, and continues to transmit hourly allowing users to locate...
A quick guide to oil analysis for engine test applications
Reliability testing is a very important component of new engine development. Engineers need to fully understand and chart the engine lifetime performance under a variety of conditions before mass production may be considered. Many important performance data parameters are collected in real time through the many different types of sensors that are connected to the engine in the test cell and oil analysis is an integral part of the research process.Comprehensive real time oil analysis can provide critical information...
Monitoring hydrocarbons in Bilge water - Case study
The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.In the United States territorial waters, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)...
Oil Sampling Best Practices (Part 2)
Understanding Dynamic Particle Equilibrium in Closed Loop Systems Dynamic Equilibrium Condition (DEC) is defined as a steady state condition where the normal wear rate in a machine results in no net gain or loss of particles. Knowing what that level is in any lubrication system is necessary in order to detect departures from this level as a result of an abnormality. At equilibrium operating conditions, the rate of wear particle generation is constant. Under the same conditions, the particle eparation and removal...
