Color Line AS, a large ferry operator, based in Norway runs a fleet of seven ships in international routes between Norway and Germany and Denmark and Sweden.
Boasting two of the world’s largest passenger and car cruise-ferries, the Colour Magic and Colour Fantasy operate the route between Oslo in Norway and Kiel in Germany.
To achieve reliable operation and to avoid mechanical breakdown, Colour Line understand the importance of maintaining hydraulic and lube oil quality.
Having tested several types of by-pass filters, Color Line made the decision to use the Purifiner filtration system. This was due to its ability to remove solid particles and chemical pollution, such as water.
Since installing the filtration technology onboard Colour Magic, Colour Line has sent oil samples to their lube-and hydraulic oil supplier once a month for analysis. Feedback from the oil samples shows that the Purifiner filters are maintaining oil condition to the highest standard.
Colour Line has now installed five Purifiner filter units onboard Color Magic and is monitoring oil condition on stern tube bearings, CCP propellers, bow and stern thrusters, fin stabilisers, and hydraulic cargo systems.
