Water Is One of the Most Destructive Substances on Earth

Boats and ships travel some of the most hostile environments on the planet, pushing through thousands of miles of water with hundreds of thousands of pounds of freight, fuel, and vessel in a variety of climates. Heat, cold, the impact of water against the hull, and the resistance of water against propellers and thrusters take their toll. Whether it is a personal watercraft that makes it out to the lake a few days a year, or a ship carrying hundreds of shipping containers across the oceans, they all experience a tremendous amount of wear and tear. Water is a very unforgiving environment.

Saltwater is highly corrosive as well as abrasive, and the moment a ship or boat enters the water, the chemical compounds found in seawater begin to eat away at the paint and metal of its hull and interior. Freshwater isn’t much better. An important part of any seafaring vessel is moisture control. Moisture allows for the propagation of organic microbes that can grow and contaminate anything from freshwater supplies to fuel and oil, as well as causing rot onboard. Moisture also facilitates basic chemical reactions such as electrolysis, oxidation, and other processes that begin to change the physical strength and toughness of even high carbon steel, eventually reducing it to rust. Water is also a poor lubricant for moving metal parts and components, and can actually cause slippage and damage due to its properties under extreme heat and cold conditions.

The Importance of Engine Maintenance

It’s well known that water and oil do not mix, which means that proper engine maintenance, especially in marine environments, is essential for controlling or removing water from engines as much as possible. Water vaporizes at much lower temperatures than oil, and this phase shift from liquid to a gaseous form creates extreme amounts of pressure. Engines often hit those vaporizing temperatures and stay there for long periods of time. If water is present, this pressurization can create a lot of problems inside an internal combustion engine. The water is also corrosive and will begin to pit and mar the inside of cylinders, reducing efficiency and performance, until enough metal breaks away to create a serious parts failure.

Engines should be serviced regularly and maintained to remove worn or broken parts in order to prevent further damage to adjacent mechanisms. This is especially true of marine equipment. After all, failure on a seafaring vessel often means that you will be a long way away from any kind of help. It could even endanger the lives of passengers and crew. Under certain conditions, and without proper upkeep, it is even possible that fires could break out and cause the ship to sink.

Ocean Vessels Markets

Ocean vessels are especially susceptible to long term use and excessive wear from the harsh conditions of seawater, wave impacts, and the strain of pushing hundreds of thousands of pounds of ship and freight across thousands of miles of harsh open sea. It is crucial that the engines powering these vessels be treated with more than merely conventional lubricants.

Our Product Serves A Variety of Watercrafts

  • Inboard: High performance sport boats often use an inboard engine. ELEV8 can give these engines an advantage in not only horsepower but fuel economy and emissions as well.
     
  • Outboard: Most personal watercraft use an outboard. ELEV8 can also give these engines a boost with both horsepower and fuel economy.
     
  • Jet-ski: A high-performance motor which is right on the water. Water is forced through a jet, which means that jet-ski motors are exposed to more water than typical propulsion methods.
     
  • Yacht/Luxury Boats: These vessels rely on engines to power a relatively small boat over potentially massive distances. Many yachts and luxury boats are very fast, and to maintain these speeds and headings they require motors with extremely reliable and durable engine hours. As the skipper of a yacht or luxury boat, you might not have a team of mechanics on board and should expect your vessel to make it from port to port reliably, as well as being easy on fuel consumption.
     
  • Fishing Boat, Personal Yacht & Commercial Seafaring Vessels: These vessels, like yachts, are often very isolated and have a need for longevity, durability, and self-reliance. They also run other equipment, such as winches, cranes, and have very heavy cargo to carry over long distances. This causes a lot of wear on just about any motor, as well as heat and friction which can break down an engine.
     
  • Cruise ships: Travel vast distances quickly with a lot of passengers.
     
  • Commercial fishing: Getting out on the water and back, traversing long distances, over long periods of time.
     
  • Barge: Heavy, difficult loads with relatively small engines doing all the hauling.
     
  • Container ships: Incredible amounts of weight over long distances for sometimes months at a time between servicing.
     
ELEV8 Performance

How ELEV8 Can Enhance the Performance of These Markets

ELEV8 is an oil additive which is ideal for marine craft of just about any size. Here are some of the things it has been tested to do in laboratory environments when compared to untreated engine oil.

  • Reduced friction up to 75%
  • Reduced steel temps up to 40%
  • Reduced wear up to 82%
  • Reduced fluid temps up to 36%

Through nanotechnology, ELEV8 fills in the gaps between components better than untreated motor oil alone. It also reduces moisture, which is ideal in marine environments.

  • Increased direct load capacity up to 302%
  • Increased fuel economy up to 27%
  • A 10% horsepower increase
  • Improved surface hardness up to 6%
