Preventative maintenance the key to reducing operating costs

Posted & filed under News.

For over 100 years, Vickers Oils have led the way in developing specialist lubricants for the Marine industry. In addition to providing the most technologically advanced lubricants to our customers, we have always taken great care to provide the support and advice needed so that they can maximise the benefits our products can offer.

 We work closely with our customers to help them select the appropriate, approved product for each application, and always encourage them to adopt preventative maintenance practices by using our lubricant Condition Monitoring Service. Our CMS, provides a comprehensive database of results, drawn from over a decade of EAL analysis, and  allows us to expertly interpret the lubricant’s performance in the vessel. The key feature of our service is that the resultant reports offer judgements on machinery health and not just lubricant condition. These judgements state, where appropriate, that the machinery is suitable for further service and does not require remedial action.

Therefore, it was with interest that we saw a recent article in the Marine Propulsion magazine which highlighted the consequences of mechanical failure due to lack of correct preventative maintenance. Riviera Maritime have kindly given us permission to publish a link to the article, which we trust you find informative. Please click on the link below to access the article.
