  • Marine Fuel Monitoring
    Manufacturer sells oil and/or fuel additives to marine diesel users to improve fuel economy. Company needed to measure improvement in engine fuel efficiency to provide their customer with accurate cost savings and investment vs. return information. Installation was on large ocean or Mississippi
  • Engine Cell Exhaust: RTO
    A Mid-western outboard engine manufacturer bought a three year-old plant for the production of its marine engines. When finished the engines are removed from the assembly line and run for quality control.
  • Marine Insulation Issues (.pdf)
    Due to the narrow confines of Engine rooms, galleys and gangways on board, in the interests of safety and good working environments insulation is critical for personnel protection, reduction of ambient heat load, protection of heat sensitive sensors and equipment, fire prevention, and maximizing
  • Designed Marine Hydrostatic Prop Drive
    Existing mechanical prop drive systems have limitations which include: Mechanical drive systems are inherently inefficient, Engine placement is fixed, High knots require high engine RPM, Low speed docking maneuvers are accomplished with plugging (bumping) the mechanical transmission in and out
  • Diesel Engine Turbochargers on Test Benches
    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the data acquisition solution for a leading German manufacturer developing and producing marine diesel engines and compact turbochargers enabling optimal levels of performance, fuel consumption and emissions.
  • Residual Cylinder Oil Base Number (BN) Measurement with Portable IR Analysis for Shipboard Use
    the risk of developing cylinder cold corrosion if cylinder lubrication is not carefully managed. Avoiding cold corrosion on cylinder liners is a major challenge for ship owners practicing slow steaming. All marine engine suppliers have issued technical bulletins discussing the problems (Fig 1).
  • Plastic industry honors innovative parts
    The top cowl for an outboard marine engine took the Conference award in the Structural Plastics Div. (SPD) 2004 design competition. It's reportedly the largest injection-molded nylon part, weighing in at 11.3 lb and measuring 33.5x23x16 in. The cowl is part of a three-piece assembly that won both
  • From Lubricants to Packaging Materials: ARS Scientists Just Say "No " to Petroleum
    and colleagues have developed a new process for making biobased additives, ones suitable for use in formulating greases; crankcase, two-cycle, and marine engine oils; and hydraulic, transmission, and drilling fluids. The additives would be made from the predominant fat molecules --triglycerides --in natural
