Bunker Survey /Draftt Survey Standard Operating Procedure SOP (Guidelines)

Bunker Inspection Standard Operating Procedure Checklist.

The main purpose of SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) is to provide a step by step guide to conduct bunkering operation with highly ensured safety precautions. Simultaneously its purpose is to provide a certified statement of the quantity and quality of the oil delivered and to draw attention to matters which may be relevant to the protection of the client’s interest.

Bunkering operation lets the bunker owner/captain/producers know the quality, quantity and safety measures applied into the oil cargo and vessel itself.

Here is a checklist to conduct bunkering operation.

Oil Condition Monitoring test is mandatory to check the real condition of oil, whether it is suitable to use in certain equipment or engine or how long we can use this for same engine. What are the content details including water content, it’s lubricity, viscosity etc. If your engine is damaged or incurring some issues due to the use of lube, you still need to investigate that why its happening and what are the factors involved, is there any solution using same oil or need to change the oil.

FTIR stands for Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, and we can measure absorption of the chemical/oil using infrared light source. One used and one fresh oil would be required to compare the values of the two, hence to determine solution. This process goes with absorption of wavelength of the infrared light to produce results.

Soot, oxidation, nitration and sulphation tests can also be conducted in this analysis to reach the best of testing results.

Then particle count is generally done for the hydraulic oil to determines particles present in the oil.

Based on the results, companies may be manufacturers take advice to put some additives in the oil to bring it up to the standard required for the specific use.

so feel free to write us here, if you’re looking for OCM, FTIR, Particle Count type analysis. Our labs are accredited for OCM inside the scope of ISO 17025.

You can also see type of tests conducted in ocm and ftir with methods and complete packages here in our page Lube Oil Testing.
