Preparing liners for SIP lubrication valves

This year, the TSA team has completed several installation jobs of the Hans Jensen SIP Lubrication Valves onboard vessels. The SIP installation jobs are in high demand as many customers wish to reduce their lubrication oil consumption. Cylinder lubrication is a crucial factor for maintaining a good engine condition on 2-stroke diesel engines, as it limits the wear and corrosion on piston rings and cylinders. From an economic point of view, cylinder lubrication is a significant part of the ship operation due to the fact that the lube oil price has been increasing and significantly more expensive than ordinary diesel oil.

What is it worth to be able to monitor liner wear?

At SMM 2014, Chris-Marine will present an updated version of the Liner Diameter Measuring instrument (LDM), which can help ship-owners save thousands of dollars. With a liner costing 50.000 USD in a large 12 cylinder engine, a rise of the wear rate from 0,05mm/1000h to 0,2mm/1000h will make the average annual replacement cost of the liners rise from 26.000 USD to 105.000 USD. This does not take into account the labour, transport and other spares needed. With the updated Liner Diameter Measuring instrument measuring liners without removing the cylinder cover or the exhaust valve has become simpler than ever and
