Engine filtration specialist Boll & Kirch reports that it has received more than 1,000 orders for its newly developed engineBoll® 6.49 filtration system in a short period of time, reports Ship Management International.

Redundant ‘on built’ filtration system

The current Boll & Kirch redundant ‘on built’ filtration system engineBoll® 6.49 convinces customers with the following newly developed filter components: It guarantees continuous cleaning of the servo oil and ensures zero-loss operation in the oil circulation system.

The automatic filter is a redundant arrangement, as it consists of two chambers with two backflushing mechanisms. In the event of a malfunction in one of these filter chambers, the second can take over the filtration process completely. This is done without manual switching from the outside.

The new engineBoll® 6.49 fulfils the required filter fineness of 6 micrometers in a never before seen, unique technical implementation. The smart filtration system from the Boll & Kirch innovation hotbed is also resource-saving and works with a claimed 100 percent reliability. The system is significantly reduced in weight and easy to install thanks to its compact design.

The product development was implemented in partnership with MAN Energy Solutions, Copenhagen and validated by the renowned French institute IFTS (Institut de la Filtration et des Techniques Séparatives).
