Intelligent cylinder lubrication

Alpha Lubricator system
* ensures considerable cylinder oil savings
* controllable wear rates, scuffing control and
* longer intervals between engine overhauls.
* However, over lubrication is not only expensive - it may even be counter productive in promoting scuffing through excessive carbon deposits  and/or "bore-polished" running surfaces.
The properties of cylinder oil scraped from the cylinder liner wall reflect the chemical environment in the cylinder as well as the physical condition of rings and liner; and there is a direct relationship between some of the key parameters in the scrape-down oil and the actual cylinder condition. A lubrication algorithm - based on scrape-down oil analysis data, cylinder oil dosage, engine load and cylinder wear rate can thus be created.
