My experience with ICE is only one engine Kawasaki Man 52/55 12 cyl. I added ICE after a complete overhaul off main engine in January 2001

Before we added ICE the engine was running good, with only 4 hours off hire last year

So then, why spend all this money for ICE.

I heard from sister Vessel Sea Pride and had read a report from Navigare that this is a well known product that will reduce friction in engine, and with less friction,
better performance, less fuel and oil consumption.

  1. My experience after only four month running is.

  2. Less oil consumption

  3. Less fuel consumption

  4. Sound off engine when is running is different,  the hard knocking is gone, lot is due to reduced of friction in engine.

  5. Lube oil purifier is running longer intervals without cleaning, also  oil auto filter is back flushing only once an hour, before we had more than 100 times a day.

  6. Pressure in crankcase is dropped due to better sealing between cylinder liner and piston rings.

  7. Overhauling of exhaust valves, inlet valves, and fuel injectors; we have longer periods  without overhauling.

  8.  Exhaust temperature went down from a average 450 to 380C this is with seawater temp 20C and air temp. on 25C. in extreme hot areas  with sea water up to 32C temp  raise up to a average of 400C.

When we did the main engine overhaul in Singapore September 1999 average in oil consumption until next overhaul in January 2001 was 397 liter a day

My average lube oil consumption to day 4 months amounts is only 116 liter a day. If this continue I will save a lot of money on lube oil budget.

Fuel Oil consumption has gone down with 0,5 ton a day and we have better combustion, cleaner exhaust gases.

I can recommend ICE especially on medium Speed engine.

Today I am not the only one in Barber Ship Management using ICE. We will also do test on another systems, especially on a big hydraulic systems and on auxiliary engines.

Best regards
Superintendent

Dear Sirs:
   The gas leak from both turbo chargers exhaust pipe had been reduced after further bolts retightening. In Lyttelton B-bank side tightening was repeated after observing minute gas leaks which again started to discolor already painted surface. Now there is still very small gas leak coming out from exhaust pipe protective shield at B-bank. It must be coming from other place which we shall locate and again retightening next port.

  Lube oil consumption is recorded and as you may see in attached monthly record sheet the engine is presently consuming amazingly less oil, We assumed the sealing
effect between piston rings and new honed liners may have contributed much to prevent oil from reaching into the burning chamber.

  But as we wonder to look back on previous repairs, honing of liners has become part of every major overhaul of this engine before, And with those repairs there has been no history of remarkable change of consumption.

   In my opinion another contributory factor to bring less oil consumption this time might be the result of the introduction of ICE catalyst in the system oil.

   As we noticed our system oil now is much cleaner as revealed by less frequency of lube oil filter back flushing. Before we have more than a hundred back flushing being automatically initiated per day as registered in our meters. Now we got only 24 times. This means system oil is clean due to good sealing effect of piston rings and cylinder liner.

Good news about lube oil consumption. After running for seven days, lube oil consumption is 25 ltrs.
Before adding ICE,
our consumption is 25 ltrs in 2 days.
We will be ordering more ICE for the other Aux. engines.

Subject: ICE Oil Additive
Date : 23.12.2000

 I remembered that ICE metal treatment ( oil additive) and ICE air cooler treatment had been introduced to this vessel during last dry docking in April 1999, in China when I had just signed on for my first contract to this vessel.

  First of all we had sprayed ICE air cooler treatment to air side tubes and fins of both main engine air coolers just before refitting those to the engine after cleaning by dockyard hands at their workshop.

  Then such engine parts as pistons, piston rings, cylinder liners, fuel pump plungers and guides etc. had been smeared with ICE before reassembling during overhaul and moreover, ICE oil additive had been filled into main engine system oil at recommended ratio.

  The result is amazing. The charge air pressure drop across both air coolers could be maintained within limit at all time. There was no turbocharger surging and engine performance had always been satisfactory throughout my first contract, throughout the time of previous C/E who had taken over me and throughout my second contract too - at any engine r.p.m up to 137.7.

   Lube oil consumption and fuel oil consumption had dropped substantially due to anti-friction property of ICE and improved sealing between pistons and piston rings, between piston rings and cylinder liners and also between fuel pump plungers and guides etc. due to ICE layer in-between.

  When we had pulled out WE pistons for overhauling in October 2000, i.e., after running 10,657 hours - all pistons, piston rings and cylinder liners, cyl, covers etc. found to be surprisingly clean and shining with only very slight carbon deposits and minimum wear down. In fact with this condition, I was confident that we could have run this engine satisfactorily for many more thousands of hours without overhauling yet.

 For your information, according to reports and records, until last docking this engine was forced to be run at lower r.p.m. ranges i.e., most of the time soon after overhauling due to turbochargers surging problem. Currently we are running WE at 128 - 134 rpm. satisfactorily without any problem.

 We had also filled ICE into aux. engines oil sumps after last docking. After that we had noticed that, fuel and L.O. consumption of aux. engines had dropped abt. 22% according to records.

  During recent overhauls of No.2 and no.3 aux. engines ( no.2 after 13,192 and no.3 after 8,627 service hours after last O/H ) for CMS, all pistons, piston rings, cyl. liners and cyl. covers found to be very clean with minimum wear rate. Condition of bearings, crank pins and journals also found satisfactory.
Note: our aux. engines has no air coolers fitted so that there's no need to apply ICE.

  Due to above-mentioned distinctive advantages, I would like to advise that ICE air cooler treatment should be applied to air coolers of our fleet vessels' main engine and aux. engines after every cleaning of air side- and ICE oil additive be filled into system oils at manufacturer's recommended ratio and engine parts should be smeared with ICE before reassembling during overhauls, in order to improve the engine performance, prolong the service life and reduce fuel and lube oil consumptions.
