  • •Accumulated reputation has made A-112 widely acceptable technology in Industries.

LUBRICON gets registered to NETIS

New Technology Information System,
established by the Ministry of Land and Transport of Japanese Government

  • •The system was introduced to enhance using superior technologies developed by private sectors in the public project, which is considered to be effective on;
    • - Shortening the construction period, or
    • - Improving the safety, or
    • - Environment protection.
  • •For the contractors who bid on public project could have a significant advantage by using the NETIS approved technology, method, and products.
  • •The standard of the NETIS qualification is so high, and demanding data is vast and deep including reference of effectiveness on real plant, that many similar products had failed to obtain the status.
  • •Only LUBRICON was successfully registered by NETIS in additives category, which shows LUBRICON is the REAL FUEL SAVER.

LUBRICON will be active on the world’s green technology solution.

We have presented LUBURICON A-112M at ‘Green Technology Financing Scheme’ took place by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia and ‘Green Technology Solution LUBRICON Seminar’ for decision makers in marine related companies, covering details on ship operators, managers, charterers, marine equipment companies, shipbuilders & repairers, engine builders & repairers, towage & salvage, offshore supply, dredging contractors, marine computing, ship finance, marine insurance, P&I associations, maritime lawyers, ship brokers, maritime organizations, classification societies, consultants & surveyors, maritime schools, port authorities and port operators took place by Global Event Malaysia and us in Malaysia.

Solution to Environment and Economy

Why this technology is needed and Why now ?
- Because It is challenge to those requirements

  • (1)Demand for clean environment
  • (2)Improvement of poor quality of marine fuel
  • (3)Energy saving to reduce fuel consumption
  • (4)Reduction of CO2 emission
  • (5)Reduction of maintenance cost

Proven Technology & Performance

  • •The energy conservation rate: 3.9% by the actual data of 4 vessels for 2.5 years voyage
  • •0.1 ton CO2 reduction per 1KL fuel can be achieved by LUBRICON usage.
  • •Everything goes clean: flue gas, equipment
  • •Less maintenance of engine and boiler
  • •Technology for Cost Saving

How "Enzyme" Works for Sludge?

  • •Core effect comes from Enzyme in plant
  • •Breaks the mass of asphaltene
  • •Disperse sludge to go all to pieces
  • •Fuel quality to be uniform
How "Enzyme" Works for Sludge

Improvement at Pre-combustion Stage

  • •Eliminates sludge accumulation/deposit in storage tank
  • •Cleans the inside of fuel pipeline
  • •Eliminates strainer clog
  • •Change fuel with more fluidity less viscosity

Improvement of Combustion Stage

Diesel Engine

  • •Smooth ignition
  • •Remedy against "Long Flame"
  • •Fine control toward complete combustion
  • •More power output by high engine efficiency

Burner Combustion

  • •Smooth ignition
  • •Easy for flame control
  • •Efficiency improvement based on complete combustion and excess O2 control in flue gas

Improvement of Post-combustion Stage

  • •Less PM (Particulate Matter) and less soot in flue gas
  • •No more sticky soot accumulation on boiler tubes
  • •No fouling of engine inside and equipment
  • •Color-less stack gas

Summary of Advantages

1) For Vessel Owner

  • •Cost Saving: Fuel cost, Maintenance cost, Less duration of dock maintenance and inspection
  • •Reliable voyage with fewer troubles of engine/equipment
  • •Contribution to environment

2) For Engineer on Board a Ship

  • •Relief from waste oil control and sludge problem
  • •Less workforce necessary for cleaning and daily maintenance
  • •Reliable operation without fouling problem: Main Engine, Generator, Economizer, Fuel purifier, Fuel tank

3) For Boiler Operator

  • •Fuel cost saving
  • •Smooth and complete combustion
  • •Color-less smoke and less PM from stack
  • •Less fouling problem: Fine soot and no more sticky fouling on tubes
  • •Less sludge problem

Addition Rate

•Initial addition requires 1:5,000 (200ppm)

e.g. Tank capacity
: 500 m3
Bunker fuel inventory
: 470 m3
Required LUBRICON rate
: (470k)/(5k)=94 liters

•Subsequent additive requires 1:10,000 (100ppm)

Remaining bunker fuel
: 120 m3 (This portion is mixed with LUBRICON already)
Receiving bunker fuel in stock
: 350 m3
: 350k/10k=35 liters

Cost Save Calculation

- Engine output (MCR)
: 10,000ps
- Engine service output (CSR)
: 8,000ps
- Fuel consumption in 6 months
: 3,550 ton,which is 26.9 (t/d) x 132-days (22-running-day/month)
- Fuel cost ($500/ton)
: $1,775,000
- Required LUBRICON (1/10000)
: 355-liter
- LUBRICON price
: $60/Liter
: (355)(60)= $21,300
- Saved bunker fuel cost
: (1,775,000)(0.039)=$69,225
- Balance saving in 6-month
: $69,225–$21,300= $47,925

Proven improvement by users

Through extensive testing on four vessels over 2.5years to collect many data,
following results were confirmed by adding LUBRICON.

  • (1) Significant reduction of PM
  • (2) Recorded higher Combustion pressure (max)
  • (3) Despite higher output, exhaust gas temperature remained in low range
  • (4) Confirmed less fuel consumption. 3.9 %, average of the four (4) vessels.
  • (5) For Boiler of land use, 10 % less fuel consumption was confirmed.
