Ship Thruster Preventive Care
Reduce wear and risk of leakage with our ABCON MARINE-THRUSTER+ in your system – proven to decrease the maintenance cost of your vessels.
THRUSTER+ is a hydraulic oil and teflon based paste, which creates a teflon layer on all surfaces, thereby, reduces the risk of leakages. It is extremely protecting against wear on bearings and seals. Our ABCON MARINE-THRUSTER+ has successfully demonstrated a reduction in wear resulting in a doubling of the overhaul intervals.
When blended with the existing system oil, the blend constitutes excellent lubrication, which due to the teflon content, maintains the lubricating effect on rubber seal surfaces and on mating metal surfaces even during standstill. In case of longer periods of standstill, the teflon protects the seals/shafts from running warm at start-up, thereby, reducing the risk of damage. If you have saltwater in the hydraulic oil, THRUSTER+ will provide a substantial safety margin as teflon maintains the lubrication properties even in saltwater.
THRUSTER+ can be blended with all kinds of mineral and synthetic based hydraulic oils and can be used together with all seal material types.
