Why purchase new cylinder liners?

Posted to Maritime Reporter (by on April 7, 2021

Why purchase new liners when there is a more cost-efficient and sustainable option?

Correct and regular monitoring & maintenance of cylinder liners significantly cuts the costs associated with liner wear and is a much more sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative. Proper maintenance can extend the lifetime of liners with as much as 20 years.

Following the introduction of the low-S legislation, many shipping companies are facing huge challenges with the condition of their cylinder liners. They report increased liner wear and piston ring wear, which of course is of concern when it comes to liner life expectancy. In addition, the Covid-19 virus has had a severe impact on movement of people and goods worldwide. Getting access to engine maintenance experts and equipment when needed has proven very difficult for many companies.

Chris-Marine can provide engine maintenance equipment for sale or rental and we can assist ship owners and ship managers with training & support remotely. We are happy to share our expertise when it comes to Cylinder Condition Monitoring & Reconditioning.
