Articel: Concequences of oil film degradation - The Motorship

Short part of the article, written by Rathesan Ravendran og Peter Jensen

"Oil stress measurements are as important as oil thickness measurements in order to prevent significant liner wear or damage of sliding surfaces. However, oil stress may be difficult to measure as several locations must be measured to understand the physical and chemical properties of the lubrication oil film.

Lubrication oil injection at each piston stroke will refresh the oil film at each piston stroke and thereby minimise the stress level of the oil film on the cylinder liner. Degradation of the oil film will therefore be prevented and low wear rates can be obtained. Furthermore, by injecting only the required amount of lubrication reduces furthermore the accumulation of oil additives, such as calcium carbonate particles which will lead to scuffing."
