Stern Tube Leakage
With our ABCON MARINE STERN TUBE SL products, you can fix your leakage without dry-docking and continue operation.
Stern tube leakages
Leakages in stern tube seals occur when they are least expected.
ABCON provides simple and efficient solutions addressing these leakages. By adding one of our STERN TUBE SL (Stop Leak) series of additives to the existing system oil, a Teflon barrier is created on the damaged seal which reduces the leakage significantly or stops it altogether. ABCON provides solutions to both minor and major leakages in the different kinds of seals for Mineral oil and EAL (Environmental Acceptable Lubricant) systems.

The high content of Teflon and other complex particles produce a barrier on the damaged surface of the seal ring. Works for leakages as well for water ingress. As a result, the leakage is significantly reduced or stopped altogether. In case of sea water in the lube oil, the ABCON products will provide a substantial safety margin as Teflon maintains its lubrication properties even in sea water. Furthermore, the products reduce wear and tear.
All our STERN TUBE products can be blended with all types of mineral and biodegradable lubricants as appropriate. They can be used with all types of approved aft seal materials.
