Decarbonization of Engines

Decarbonization of Engines

Decarbonization of aux engines such as power generators aboard ships is a part of routine engine maintenance. It involves the removal of the cylinder heads and valve gear, pistons and rings, allowing the inspection of the liner and removal of the accumulation of carbon from these components.
Marine Engine Firing Order

Marine Engine Firing Order

Marine engine firing order is designed to distribute the engine power on the crankshaft bearings evenly. It should also be the optimum firing order to ensure the least engine vibration through balancing the power output along with consideration given to torsion and axial characteristics.
