ABCON Friction and Leak-Reducing Additives for Oil
ABCON produces and sells high-performance additives for blending into mineral lubricating oils. These additives decrease internal friction and thereby reduce wear, energy consumption and environmental pollution.
ABCON’s main products – ABCON MARINE-HYDRAULIC+, ABCON MARINE-TRANSMISSION+ and ABCON MARINE-DIESEL ENGINE+ – all reduce internal friction, leading to less wear and energy consumption. This extends components’ lifetime.
Stern-tube and thruster oil-leakage reduction pastes
ABCON is renowned for its widely used stern-tube stop leakage product ABCON MARINE-STERN TUBE PASTE SL which has demonstrated its capability on numerous ships. ABCON MARINE STERN-TUBE PASTE SL and ABCON MARINE-THRUSTER SL pastes reduce or eliminate oil leakages of existing systems. This can keep the ship going until the next dry-docking that is scheduled.
Stern–tube and thruster wear reduction products
ABCON MARINE-STERN TUBE PASTE+ and ABCON MARINE-THRUSTER+ protect against seal-leakage. They also reduce wear and tear, due to their high teflon-content. It is recommended to use them when dry-docking. They can also be used as a preventive measure to reduce the risk of future leakages.
Marine multi-lubricating paste for extreme pressure, temperature and seawater conditions
ABCON MARINE MULTI-LUBRICATING PASTE is used when extreme pressure capability, reduced wear and friction, corrosion protection or saltwater resistance is required.
Many ships already use this product. Applications in the engine room are:
- Hot bolts on turbo charger and exhaust system, to ensure these bolts will not get stuck
- Any assembly of engine or equipment where a later disassembly is foreseen
- Any oil seal and gasket
Applications on the deck are for valve spindles, open gears, hatch bolts and bolts exposed to seawater, and for winches.
Friction and leakage-reducing additives for hydraulic oils
When added to conventional hydraulic oils ABCON MARINE-HYDRAULIC+ reduces the internal friction in the moving parts, leading to lower wear and temperature. This provides lower energy consumption.
Also available is ABCON MARINE-HYDRAULIC SL (stop leak), which reduces or eliminates leakage from seals.
Noise-reduction product for hydraulic pumps
ABCON MARINE-HYDRAULIC SN (stop noise) reduces the high-frequency noise produced by the hydraulic pump.
Friction-reducing gearbox additives
ABCON MARINE-TRANSMISSION+ contains teflon to reduce friction in gearboxes and similar transmission systems. This reduces wear-and-tear, and minimises the noise level.
ABCON MARINE-TRANSMISSION SL is recommended for use in transmission systems where seals are leaking.
Additive for treating medium and high-speed diesel engines
ABCON MARINE DIESEL-ENGINE+ is an additive designed for treatment of medium and high-speed diesel engines. When added to conventional lubricating oils ABCON MARINE DIESEL-ENGINE+ ensures minimum wear and scuffing. It offers the highest degree of protection.
ABCON MARINE products are rapidly distributed worldwide from its own facilities in Copenhagen, near the international airport.
Products and Services
Stern Tube Stop Leak
ABCON Marine-Stern Tube Stop Leak (SL) forms a teflon barrier to prevent leaks in stern tubes.
Stern Tube Water Ingress
ABCON Marine-Stern Tube Stop Leak (SL) is a teflon-based product designed to stop water ingress.
Thruster Stop Leak
The teflon-based ABCON Marine-Thruster Stop Leak (SL) additive stops or reduces leakages in thrusters by adding 2%-4% of volume to oil in the system.
Thruster Water Ingress
ABCON Marine-Thruster Stop Leak (SL) stops water ingress and minimises the negative effects of water on the system by adding 2% to 4% of volume to the oil.
Preventive Maintenance for Stern Tube and Thruster
Stern Tube+ and Thruster+ are products designed for protective maintenance, and both protect against wear on bearings and seals.
