How the Auramarine MGO handling system works

Ensuring lubrication: number one priority
Because of the lower viscosity of Marine Gas Oil (MGO), the lubrication requirements of the engine manufacturer may not be met. In most marine diesel engines, the viscosity of the fuel needs to be at least 2.0 cSt. At normal temperature, the viscosity of MGO varies between 1-2 cSt, which means that sufficient engine lubrication can no longer be guaranteed. The viscosity can be improved with additives, but this is relatively costly. However, there is a much more affordable way of ensuring proper lubrication and sufficient viscosity.

Auramarine MGO cooling system
The solution offered by Auramarine is simple and reliable. This handling cooling system cooling chills Marine Gas Oil
even below 20 degrees Celsius, so that the viscosity and lubricity meet the requirements of the engine manufacturers. For the cooling of the MGO, we use a system consisting of a Chilling unit and an MGO Cooler unit.

Stages of the alteration process
The complete process has to include a report on the starting conditions, an inspection of the existing equipment and the alteration work. As a turnkey supplier, Auramarine can assume responsibility for the proper follow-through of all these stages.

Auramarine MGO Units And Operating Principles

For the cooling of MGO to sufficient viscosity, we use a system consisting of two main units: the Auramarine Combi Chiller unit and MGO Cooler Unit.

MGO Combi Chiller

A complete unit for the cooling of fresh water in the Marine Gas Oil cooling water circuit. The unit consist of a compressor, a condenser, an evaporator, filters, a control panel and all necessary valves and fittings for operation.

MGO Cooler Units

The purpose of the unit is to keep the viscosity of the MGO suitable for the engine. The unit contains a cooler, a viscosity sensor (range 0-10 cSt)*, a three way control valve on the water side for cooling control, a temperature transmitter on the MGO outlet line for mA signal to ECR and all necessary valves and fittings for operation.
