Another brilliant title presented by MarineInsight experts. This one is devoted to the components of the two-stroke marine engines. A two-stroke engine is deservedly considered the most critical part of the merchant ship since it provides the power required to propel the ship transporting the cargoes between ports.
Though there are numerous newly established regulations and technologies released to govern the maintenance and operation of these engines, some of the things remain same, and these include technical maintenance procedures, such as testing and measurements as well as taking clearances.
The authors of this volume have prepared an excellent compilation of the important checks and tests plus measurements commonly performed on the components of the two-stroke marine diesel engines. The content of the publication is covering the calibration procedures to be followed when conducting routine technical maintenance of the MAN B&W and SULZER marine diesel engines widely used on board marine ships.
The volume will definitely be of great practical interest for the students of marine engineering as well as for the machinery room personnel who will find many useful tips to be applied for their day to day work.
