New performance indicator enables effective fuel savings, increased efficiency and early damage detection in diesel engines
Reliable results even at elevated pressure ranges up to 350 bar
Fuel consumption in shipping and the associated costs are enormous – it is not without reason that many operators pursue a slow steaming strategy. But this is not a permanent solution. In the “Safety and Shipping Review 2015” Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty warns that this technology shortens the life of the engine and increases polluting emissions. So rather than restrictions, increased efficiency is more effective in reducing consumption and preventing permanent damage. One possibility for this is the “indexing” of the engine – the dynamic pressure measurement in the combustion chamber of the diesel engine at the indicator valves – the PREMET X measuring device presented by CM Technologies GmbH at this year’s SMM in Hamburg, makes it possible to precisely determine the cylinder pressure at every cylinder position, the actual injection and ignition timing, as well as other aspects of the combustion process. Based on the results, the injection can be optimised and fuel consumption reduced. Furthermore, nearly all wear processes can be monitored and maintenance planned accordingly. Innovative sensors from Kistler Switzerland are used for maximum reliability, making it possible to measure pressures up to 350 bar. (…)

IMPORTANT! To be able to proceed, you need to solve the following simple math (so we know that you are a human) :-)
