A variety of lubricants is available for different machines. These include engine oil, gear oil, grease, hydraulic oil, compressor oil and turbine oil. Each type of lubricant is used in various applications and in different parts. Engine oil is used to lubricate engines, while hydraulic oil provides lubrication as well as transfers power through the hydraulic system. Equipment that are part of offshore rigs and FPSOs include cranes, hydraulic lifts, diesel engines, compressors, traveling blocks, hydraulic boost pumps and propeller shafts.
Marine Diesel Oil (MDO) is a type of fuel oil that is blend of gas-oil and heavy fuel oil, with less gas-oil than intermediate fuel. MDO is designed and intended for use in the maritime diesel prime movers. Marine Diesel Oil is also called “Distillate Marine Diesel”. MDO is widely used by medium speed and medium/high speed marine diesel engines.
It is also used in the larger low speed and medium speed propulsion engines which normally burn residual fuel. Petroleum residuals, or inorganic salts, in such fuels normally result in fuel injector tip deposits that prevent the injector from creating the desired fuel spray pattern.
