III. GLOBAL CONFERENCE ON INNOVATION IN MARINE TECHNOLOGY AND THE FUTURE OF MARITIME TRANSPORTATION, İzmir, Türkiye, 18 - 19 Nisan 2019, ss.462-472
It is inevitable in time that the lubrication oils used in the marine diesel generators are
contaminated with fuel leakages from the combustion chamber, injector, fuel pumps. Due
to this contamination, the lubricating properties of the lubricating oil will decrease,
resulting in friction losses and wear in the piston ring-cylinder liner area on the engine.
In such cases, it will not be easy to change or clean (separate) the lubricating oil, which
will cause an additional cost.
For this purpose, in this study, friction forces of %10, %20, %30 diesel fuel mixed in the
lubricating oil are determined in the piston ring-cylinder liner area. Improvement of these
negative effects with tall oil fatty acid in different ratios was investigated by using Taguchi
