Vessel owners and operators must ensure their vessel(s) remain on schedule afloat and meet legal requirements Exol’s global logistic network, combined with it’s testing and oil condition diagnostics expertise, instils the confidence you need. Our World Class Fuel Oil section will analyse and report your bunkered sample within 24hrs of receipt, ensuring the product meets specification.

How Fluid Check can help:

  • Reduce vehicle downtime
  • Identify excessive fuelling.
  • Reduce unnecessary oil changes
  • Extend oil drain intervals – reducing lubricant costs & waste production.
  • Identify poor fuel supplies and contamination.
  • Independent analysis in warranty cases to identify the root cause of failure.

Types of analysis:

  • Lubricated systems: Detecting contamination, confirming suitability of the lubricant, monitoring wear metals and identify root causes of problems before they lead to a failure. Systems monitored include Emergency Engines, Scrape-down systems, Stern-tubes, Bow thrusters, Crane Hydraulics, Control Pitch Propellers, Remote Control Valves and Thermal Oils.

  • Fuel Systems: Test Fuel oil to full ISO 8217 specifications with various custom test suites. Identify water, microbes and contaminated on site bulk storage tanks.

  • OWS Systems – Ensure vessel’s water discharge meets the local and international specifications.

  • Coolant Systems – Your anti-freeze is not just to stop your coolant system freezing, it also has an important role in cooling the engine. If your engine oil is not lasting as long as it should be, or your engine is running hot, then confirming the coolant condition may be a good place to start.
