Liner Lacquering

  • Occurs in medium speed engines.
  • Build up of lacquer on liner grooves -Glazing due to which cylinder LO consumption increases.
  • If left unnoticed - Scoring \ polishing of liner and operating cost of engine

Because of 

1. Large variation of load \ frequent \ prolong perios of idle running followed by full load.
2. High mean effective pressure
3.Low sulphur


The time for injection  , injection and combustion is very small.
Therefore beside complete combustion , thermal cracking of fuel component can be expected .
If these cracked component reach relatively cylinder liner , they will condense , concentrate and start formal sticky resinous lacquer of process of polymerization and evaporation of light ends
  1. Fuel droplets injected at HP begins to burn rapidly
  2. Rapid burn leads to incomplete combustion of some layer fuel droplets but intense heating of droplet corresponds
  3. Thermal cracking of some fuel components occurs within larger drop.
  4. Some droplets impinging on cylinder liner where thernal cracking reaction c ontinuse to form unsaturated reactive ydrocarbon
  5. Condensation and polymerisation of unsaturated products of the liner forms resinous organic polymeric deposit.
  6. Sticky resinous deposit is spread over te liner by piston ring movement.
  7. Lubricant including metal - containing additives beconmes entrained in the deposit.
  8. Continual dexposure of the deposit to combustion , evaporation of light ends and rubbing by piston movement forms hardened lacquer deposit.
  9. Build up of lacquer fills honing grooves and leads to increased rate of oil consumption

Differences between MC/MC-C and ME/ME-C engines

The electrohydraulic control mechanisms of the ME engine replace the following components of the conventional MC engine: Chain drive for camshaft Camshaft with fuel cams, exhaust cams and indicator cams Fuel pump actuating gear, including roller guides and reversing mechanism Conventional fuel pressure booster and VIT system Exhaust valve actuating gear and roller guides Engine driven starting air distributor Electronic governor with actuator Regulating shaft Engine side control console Mechanical cylinder lubricators. The Engine Control System of the ME engine comprises: Control units Hydraulic power supply unit Hydraulic cylinder units, including: Electronically controlled fuel injection, and Electronically controlled exhaust valve activation Electronically controlled starting air valves Electronically controlled auxiliary blowers Integrated electronic governor functions Tacho system Electronically controlled Alpha lubricators

Why is a man hole door elliptical in shape?

Any opening in a pressure vessel is kept to a minimum and for a man entry an elliptical hole  is lesser in size than the corresponding circular hole. More over it is prime concern to have a  smoothed generous radius at the corners to eliminate stress concentration. Hence other  geometrical shapes like rectangle and square are ruled out.  To compensate for the loss of material in the shell due to opening, a doubler ring has to be  provided around the opening. The thickness of the ring depends on the axis length along the  dirrection in which the stresses are maximum and the thickness of the shell. It is important to  align the minor axis along the length of the vessel, as the stress in this direction is  maximum. Longitudinal stress: Pd/2t where P= pressure inside the vessel, d= diameter of the arc, t=  thickness of the shell plating  Circumferential stress: Pd/4t  More over a considerable material and weight saving is achieved as minor is along the  direction of maximum stress.

Main engine interlocks

Interlocks are provided so that the engine can be started or reversed only when certain conditions have been fulfilled. When there is a remote control of engines, it is essential to have interlocks. This reduces the possibility of engine damage and any hazards to the operating personnel. Turning gear Interlock . This device prevents the engine from being started if the Turning gear is engaged. Running Direction Interlock . This prevents the fuel from being supplied if the running direction of the engine does not match the Telegraph. Starting Air Distributor in end position . This prevents starting from taking place if the shifting of the Distributor has not been completed. Main Lube. oil pressure, Piston cooling pressure, Jacket water pressure, and important parameters must be above the required minimum. Auxiliary Blower Interlock . The Auxiliary Blower is provided in case of Constant pressure turbo charging. Air Spring pressure Interlock . In case of the present generation
