When purchasing marine fuel, shipping companies need to carefully inspect the the fuel quantity and quality they receive from suppliers. During bunkering, some suppliers mislead their customers by conducting malpractices such as manipulation of temperatures, magic pipes, incorrect density, erroneous trim/list calculations, defective gauging tapes, faulty flowmeters and flawed strapping tables.
ROB and Sludge surveys can help shipowners and charterers avoid falling victim to such malpractices and ensure the fuel quality and quantity are in full compliance with ISO 8217 standards.
ROB and Sludge surveys involve investigation of various variables such as complex tank profiles, changing vessel trims and list conditions and more. Sometimes ship crews are not equipped with the knowledge and expertise to study these complex parameters, making it difficult for them to accurately measure and calculate the fuel quantity onboard when they receive the fuel from cargo officers.
