Cylinder Identification

Cylinder Identification

During a recent job, we realised that the cylinders on the engine had been misidentified. It reminded me of a much more serious problem we’ve seen before, which you can see in the picture below. All this was as a result of the A-bank pistons being fitted in the B-bank and vice versa. Not only is it critical to return the pistons to the correct bank of the engine, but when it comes to communicating, resolving and recording engine information, it...

Engineer’s Resource

Engineer’s Resource

Back in 2016, we made a fresh commitment here at Bartech Marine – we wanted to share as much of our expertise as we could, to engineers all around the world. And that’s when we started sending out our emails, providing free content on all manner of issues related to engine performance, reduction of downtime, improvement of safety and many more topics. It’s fair to say that it’s been a worthwhile exercise – we regularly get feedback from...

This means that Bartech HQ is a hive of activity – not only do we have the usual servicing and overhauls to do, but we’re very busy getting ready for the exhibition. We’ve got a number of things planned, like the test engine that I mentioned last week, and today I just wanted to give you a little bit more info about a few of the case studies we’ll be sharing...

Critical engine spares problems

Critical engine spares problems

Have you ever felt the pain of having to wait for spares to arrive whilst your critical engine is out of action? If you have, then the chances are you’ll have considered (or acted upon) the idea of holding more spares in your stores. And usually, we’d promote this type of proactiveness, though there is something else to consider, which was highlighted to us while helping a client this week. Tim’s our store manager. Right now, he’s cataloguing a...

Learning from the big guns in the power sector

I was at a seminar in Leicester recently, discussing the changing engine requirements for the power sector. There were some pretty big organisations represented there, including ABB Turbochargers, Wartsila, Jenbacher, Chevron and Centrica, and it was really interesting to hear their views on things, and how everyone is getting on. And regardless of the industry, if you’re at all reliant on diesel engines, I think you’ll get some good learns...
