ABCON MARINE has different additives that stops leaks or reduce the risk of having them. The clear benefit from using ABCON is that it is much less time-consuming and our products can be managed by the vessels own crew. The vessel doesn’t lose time on its schedule. Our product can simply be shipped by air as non-dangerous goods to anywhere in the world on short notice.
These are some areas on tankers where ABCON’s products can help as proven by the case studies.
ABCON MARINE Stop Leak additives can when added at 5-10% (by volume) stop leakages within hours.
ABCON has for years successfully delivered Stop Leak additives to more than 100 vessels per year. This is our proof of quality. See Stop Leak additives.
ABCON MARINE+ additives in the lube oil leads to lower friction and hence to lower wear. An added benefit is a lower risk of a future leakage. See MAINTENANCE products.
ABCON MARINE additive assortment consists of 22 specialized products for numerous applications on board such as stern tubes, tunnel thrusters, steering gear, gears, cranes and other hydraulic equipment.

Regarding your product ABCON MARINE-THRUSTER SL which was used to minimize or eliminate oil leakage from bow thruster 1 year before vessels dry-dock, kindly note that leakage was reduced from 20-30 liters per month to 2-3 liters per month which was more than ok until vessel was dry-docked and oil seal was changed.
Thank you and best regards

We faced a problem with a small leak from a cargo crane gearbox.
The gearbox is un-pressurized, and the leak a minor ‘drip’ from an ‘O’ ring seal, however, during annual inspect we were given a class condition.
We were informed that to dismantle the gearbox and replace the ‘O’ ring would take two makers technicians four days.
ABCON was used and the leak stopped, the satisfaction of the classification society, and the relief of the owners.
ABCON MARINE Multi Lubrication Paste increases wear resistance on multiple areas and ABCON MARINE SEAL PROTECT+ increases the lifetime of seals. See also under “Other Products”.
