10 pcs Diesel Engine Combustion Chamber Leak Tester (DEC)

The DEC-Tester provides reliable and efficient condition monitoring of the combustion chamber in 4-stroke diesel- and gas engines with at bore size of 160-460 mm. The equipment monitors the current condition of the piston ring pack / cylinder liner and inlet and exhaust valves.

Regular diesel engine combustion chamber tester inspections are an important complement to existing maintenance procedures, making it possible to customize engine overhaul intervals in order to lower operational costs and avoid engine break-downs.

Reason for purchase:

Considerable savings can be made through regular condition monitoring of the combustion chamber. Broken or worn out piston rings, excessive liner wear or worn valve seats are easily detected by the diesel engine combustion chamber tester. Such abnormalities are often not possible to detect through cylinder pressure measurements

According to Gary Brownless, Technical superintendent at Maestro “The Chris-Marine compression testers are useful and allowing us to extend overhauls/predict problems on the 4-strokes”
