Specialty Lubricants

Besides the main engine and diesel generators, ships have various systems onboard which require lubricants such as air compressors, hydraulic systems, turbochargers, etc. as indicated on the vessel’s lube charts. Selecting the correct lubricants for each application on board is critical and is part of a good maintenance program.

Drew Marine support operators make the correct selection(s) and can even provide on-board testing kits or even service engineer visits should there be a need.

Gear Oils

Gear systems must be cooled, lubricated, and protected by high-quality gear oils. Those same oils also flush away particles from the contact areas that can cause damage or excessive noise. These oils must also protect from high pressures and extreme temperatures to prevent unnecessary wear and tear. Gear oils have a duty to protect from elemental damage as well, like corrosion.
