AOM Viscosity Control System to protect engines and enhance efficiency
Why accurate measurement and evaluation of viscosity is an essential part of safe engine operation
The viscosity of fuel oil must have certain characteristics to protect engine parts and pumps of a vessel. HFO needs to be heated to about 50 °C to become pumpable because of its high viscosity at lower temperatures. It needs to be heated to about 130 °C to reach the optimum injection viscosity of 8 to 15 mm2/s. This enables you to optimize combustion efficiency and thus fuel consumption.
According to tests by LR’s FOBAS team new fuel oil blends such as VLSFO vary greatly in viscosity and density. Therefore, the measurement and evaluation of viscosity becomes even more important to protect engines and pumps.
