HON S Improvements to enhance safety and ease-of-use

Chris-Marine has recently made improvements to our honing machine HON S in order to enhance safety and ease-of-use.

HON Air Safety


Remote control box
The control handles for driving speed and stone pressure have been moved from the honing machine to the same external control box where the reset and emergency buttons are situated. This makes HON S much easier and even safer to use.

Chain slack detector (optional)
The patented chain slack detector stops the machine if there is slack in the chain from the hoist. This can occur for instance if the stone pressure is too high, thus preventing the honing head from sliding down in the liner.

Upgrade kit
Those customers who already have a HON S will get a chance to upgrade their HON S by purchasing an upgrade kit.
There will be two versions of the upgrade kit:

1)Remote control box + chain slack detector
2)Remote control box

Product descriptionHON S is an automatic honing machine for restoration of medium speed engine cylinder liner geometry and surface structure.
For workshop and in-situ use.

Chris-Marine AB acquires monitoring solutions from LEMAG LEHMANN & MICHELS GmbH.

Malmö, Sweden, October 12, 2016 – Chris-Marine AB today announces its acquisition of monitoring products from German company LEMAG LEHMANN & MICHELS GmbH (LEMAG). The products will complement Chris-Marine’s portfolio of products and services and will further strengthen Chris-Marine’s position as a leading supplier of quality maintenance products and methods for maintenance of combustion engines.

The products that will be integrated in Chris-Marine’s range of products are LEMAG® SPEAT, Shaftpower®, Cylinder Pressure Indicators, Calibration tools and Crankshaft Deflection Indicators.

In connection with the acquisition, Chris-Marine establishes a subsidiary in Germany with key employees from LEMAG. The new Chris-Marine office will be situated at the LEMAG premises in Rellingen close to Hamburg.

”We are welcoming our new colleagues and their expertise to the Chris-Marine family and we are really excited about the integration of LEMAG’s quality monitoring instruments into the Chris-Marine portfolio of products,” says Jens Groth, CEO Chris-Marine/IOP Marine.

“The LEMAG range of monitoring instruments not only complements our own range of products for combustion engines, but also supports our business idea to help customers optimize the running of their engines in order to save time and money while keeping the environment in mind,” Jens Groth continues.

Did you hear about the updated VRL?

The Chris-Marine VRL is a dual-purpose tool for maintenance of medium-speed diesel engine cylinder heads and it facilitates complete maintenance of cylinder head air intake / exhaust valve seats and seat pockets.

VRL dual spindle

The VRL can be used for maintenance of cylinder head valve seats, which can be restored to their original contact angle and surface geometry and surface roughness. The VRL can also be used for renovation of cylinder heads where seat pockets have experienced corrosion or been scratched in connection with change of seat.

Use the VRL to machine to suitable oversize and insert relevant oversize seat. The VRL cutting angle can be adjusted and the VRL is compatible with the majority of medium-speed 4-stroke engines, including but not limited to engines from Wärtsilä, MAN, Pielstick, HiMSEN and Rolls Royce.

Next generation spindles

Recently, Chris-Marine introduced next generation of VRL mounting spindles. The spindles are auto-centering and allows for quick positioning of VRL machine on cylinder head. In addition, these spindles features a cut-out in the central part of the spindle, allowing a small measurement tool to be used while VRL is in place. This makes it very quick to check result of machining and reduces time spent on completion of recess machining job with more than 50%.

Measuring slot

The new VRL mounting spindles are available for existing VRL’s and will be standard for new VRLs unless otherwise agreed. Along with the new generation of VRL guiding spindles, we also introduce a special toolkit for measuring of the machining result with the VRL in place.

Contact us for more information or a quote for the new spindles and the toolkit.

To learn more about the VRL, check out the product page for technical information, product sheet, pictures and video!

Save money by monitoring your cylinder liners

At Posidonia 2016, we will be showcasing the newly upgraded Liner Diameter Measurement tool, designed and developed for accurate measuring of cylinder liner diameters without the need to remove cylinder head or valve housing.

How to use the LDM – Liner measurement instruction

The Liner Diameter Measurement tool can be used for verifying cylinder wear and deformation prior to dry-docking or for following up cylinder wear and deformation on a single engine of interest by complementing regular scavenging port inspections with cylinder liner measurement.

Recently, some of our Technical Support and After Sales Technicians were onboard one of DS Norden’s vessels to measure the liner wear on a MAN 7S50MC-C engine.

As we have previously heard from customers that they would like information on how to use the Liner Diameter measurement tool, the job was not only finished according to DS Norden’s satisfaction, but also resulted in this step-by-step video of how to use the LDM.

We hope this video will help our customers when using the LDM – however, if you feel more comfortable with our service technicians doing the job for you, we are happy to help!

MAN Diesel approval of LDM

We are very proud to receive this appreciation certificate from MAN Diesel & Turbo, as well as an official “No Objection Letter” for our LDM tool, which measures liner wear and deformation.

During the past year, the liner wear measuring instrument has been tested onboard several vessels in close cooperation with the well-known engine builder and as a result, MAN Diesel & Turbo has found that the LDM is acceptable as cylinder liner dimension measurement instrument, especially for repeated measurements for evaluation of the cylinder liner trend wear profile.

The majority of the LDM tests have been carried out on MAN B&W two-stroke engines of the type S80ME-C, where the measurement results have been validated against the traditional manual measuring method and found to be reliable also with repeated measurements.

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 can now be done in under an hour per unit by opening the inspection hatch and removing the indicator cock on the units that are measured.
