Lagersmit Launches Oil Collector Ring
Lagersmit has launched the Oil Collector Ring which prevents oil leakage into the engine room.
A clean engine room provides safety. The Oil Collector Ring (OCR) prevents oil droplets or mist from the stern tube and the forward seal entering the engine room. The OCR is applicable to all Supreme seals both new and delivered models.
Wear at the stern tube seal which is located in the engine room may cause emission of oil. Sometimes emission is limited to mist. When the wear is heavy drops of oil will enter the engine room.
The OCR captures this kind of oil emission which entails several benefits:
- A clean engine room • Prevents a slippery floor and the risks of accidents
- Reduces fire risks
- Fewer issues with Port State Control which no longer accepts this type of pollution
With the OCR Lagersmit adds a new product to their Supreme product line which makes zero-emission of oil possible. The OCR is available for both new and existing seals.
