CIMAC to Focus on Engines and Cylinders

Monday, July 08, 2002
It is estimated that 80 to 90 percent of world trade in volume terms is carried by vessel. There are approximately 86,000 ocean going merchant ships over 100 gt in operation. About 97 percent of them are propelled by large-bore, highly supercharged diesel engines. State-of-the-art diesel engines with maximum availability have to be reliable, maintenance-friendly, highly efficient, and they have to operate at lowest emissions. Cylinder condition is a very important item in diesel engine technology and development. Therefore CIMAC has chosen the topic: Interaction Between Engine Design, Cylinder Lube Oil Dosage, and Cylinder Condition. for the CIMAC Circle at SMM 2002, Hamburg on September 26, 2002, 1:30-4:00 pm in room: Kopenhagen I - III This type of CIMAC event has been held with great success for several years at major trade fairs like SMM, EUROPORT and ASME Turbo Expo.

A panel of experts from users, engine designers, and lube oil designers will present their viewpoint as the introduction to this interesting and challenging plenum discussion.
