Marine Diesel Engine Lubrication

Marine Diesel Engine Lubrication The SATISFACTORY LUBRICATION OF Diesel engines presents some of the most difficult problems encountered by oil technologists. This is especially true of large marine engines, where, due to low speeds and high loads, it is difficult to establish fluid film lubrication. Cylinder lubrication is particularly difficult due to the high temperatures encountered. This problem is more difficult in twostroke engines than in fourstroke engines as, in the former, there is no nonworking stroke during which it is easier to form an oil film on the cylinder walls. Pressurecharged twostroke engines are the most difficult of all to lubricate satisfactorily. The problem is aggravated in engines operating on residual fuel due to the high sulphur content increasing corrosive wear, and to the abrasive ash forming constituents present in such fuels. In addition, the contaminating influences of partially burnt products of combustion on the crankcase oil have to be considered. The everpresent risk of water leakage into the crankcase oil, either from condensation, or from leakage of the cooling system, influences and often restricts the use of otherwise beneficial additives. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial Lubrication and Tribology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The SATISFACTORY LUBRICATION OF Diesel engines presents some of the most difficult problems encountered by oil technologists. This is especially true of large marine engines, where, due to low speeds and high loads, it is difficult to establish fluid film lubrication. Cylinder lubrication is particularly difficult due to the high temperatures encountered. This problem is more difficult in twostroke engines than in fourstroke engines as, in the former, there is no nonworking stroke during which it is easier to form an oil film on the cylinder walls. Pressurecharged twostroke engines are the most difficult of all to lubricate satisfactorily. The problem is aggravated in engines operating on residual fuel due to the high sulphur content increasing corrosive wear, and to the abrasive ash forming constituents present in such fuels. In addition, the contaminating influences of partially burnt products of combustion on the crankcase oil have to be considered. The everpresent risk of water leakage into the crankcase oil, either from condensation, or from leakage of the cooling system, influences and often restricts the use of otherwise beneficial additives.
