Norwegian company Tide Sjo had been experiencing ongoing problems related to contaminated lube oil aboard its ferry MF Fedjefjord and required a suitable oil filtration unit.
A Europafilter EF2115 oil filtration system was installed to reduce oil contamination levels and eliminate overheating and valve failures that had resulted.
The filter was assembled in an offline circuit in order to continuously treat lubricant on the ferry while it is in operation.
Since installation, operators have experienced considerably less wear on crucial engine components, no overheating issues and a restoration of crucial valve functions.
Inline filters now perform under significantly improved operating conditions, with the entire system working to improve the cleanliness of lube oil while streamlining maintenance procedures.
