Maestro Ship Management Purchases Combustion Chamber Monitoring Equipment from Chris-Marine

chris-marine dec

Regular diesel engine combustion chamber tester inspections are an important complement to existing maintenance procedures, making it possible to customise engine overhaul intervals in order to lower operational costs and avoid engine breakdowns.

Considerable savings can be made through regular condition monitoring of the combustion chamber.

Broken or worn out piston rings, excessive liner wear or worn valve seats are easily detected by the diesel engine combustion chamber tester.

Such abnormalities are often not possible to detect through cylinder pressure measurements.

This is the reason why Maestro Ship Management recently purchased 10pcs of the Chris-Marine DEC-Tester for their fleet.

Maestro Ship Management technical superintendent Gary Brownless said: "The Chris-Marine compression testers are proving useful and allowing us to extend overhauls/predict problems on the 4-strokes."

For more than five decades, Chris-Marine® & IOP Marine have designed, manufactured and sold engine care equipment for two and four-stroke diesel engines.
