Yanmar 4LH upgrade
PJ Sykes


Published on May 30, 2015
The old 1968 Chris Craft Express 31's engines needed a little love. The are Yanmar 4LH-DTE's that have plenty of life in them. I tore them down, fixed, cleaned, replace, sandblasted pretty much the entirety of both motors.
I've been a hermit all winter, working on the boat. All that's left is put it in the water and ops check it.
While the engines were out the inside of the boat from the cabin back got an overhaul.

Marine Diesel Engines How they work Documentary
REPAIR MANUALS


Published on Oct 4, 2016
Marine Diesel Engines How they work Documentary .When everything is Big.

Most modern ships use a reciprocating diesel engine as their prime mover, due to their operating simplicity, robustness and fuel economy compared to most other prime mover mechanisms. The rotating crankshaft can be directly coupled to the propeller with slow speed engines, via a reduction gearbox for medium and high speed engines, or via an alternator and electric motor in diesel-electric vessels. The rotation of the crankshaft is connected to the camshaft or a hydraulic pump on an intelligent diesel.

The reciprocating marine diesel engine first came into use in 1903 when the diesel electric rivertanker Vandal was put into service by Branobel. Diesel engines soon offered greater efficiency than the steam turbine, but for many years had an inferior power-to-space ratio. The advent of turbocharging however hastened their adoption, by permitting greater power densities.

Diesel engines today are broadly classified according to Their operating cycle: two-stroke engine or four-stroke engine Their construction: crosshead, trunk, or opposed piston Their speed Slow speed: any engine with a maximum operating speed up to 300 revolutions per minute (rpm), although most large two-stroke slow speed diesel engines operate below 120 rpm. Some very long stroke engines have a maximum speed of around 80 rpm. The largest, most powerful engines in the world are slow speed, two stroke, crosshead diesels. Medium speed: any engine with a maximum operating speed in the range 300-900 rpm. Many modern four-stroke medium speed diesel engines have a maximum operating speed of around 500 rpm. High speed: any engine with a maximum operating speed above 900 rpm.

Most modern larger merchant ships use either slow speed, two stroke, crosshead engines, or medium speed, four stroke, trunk engines. Some smaller vessels may use high speed diesel engines.

The size of the different types of engines is an important factor in selecting what will be installed in a new ship. Slow speed two-stroke engines are much taller, but the footprint required is smaller than that needed for equivalently rated four-stroke medium speed diesel engines. As space above the waterline is at a premium in passenger ships and ferries (especially ones with a car deck), these ships tend to use multiple medium speed engines resulting in a longer, lower engine room than that needed for two-stroke diesel engines. Multiple engine installations also give redundancy in the event of mechanical failure of one or more engines, and the potential for greater efficiency over a wider range of operating conditions.

As modern ships' propellers are at their most efficient at the operating speed of most slow speed diesel engines, ships with these engines do not generally need gearboxes. Usually such propulsion systems consist of either one or two propeller shafts each with its own direct drive engine. Ships propelled by medium or high speed diesel engines may have one or two (sometimes more) propellers, commonly with one or more engines driving each propeller shaft through a gearbox. Where more than one engine is geared to a single shaft, each engine will most likely drive through a clutch, allowing engines not being used to be disconnected from the gearbox while others keep running. This arrangement lets maintenance be carried out while under way, even far from port.

The Wartsila-Sulzer RTA96-C turbocharged two-stroke diesel engine is the most powerful and most efficient engine in the world today.It comes in 6 cylinder in-line through to a whopping 14 cylinder version. The cylinder bore is 38 inches and the stroke is just over 98 inches. Each cylinder displaces 111,143 cubic inches (1820 litres) and produces 7780 horsepower. Total displacement comes out to 1,556,002 cubic inches (25,480 litres) for the 14-cylinder version.The RTA96C-14 can achieve a maximum power output of 108,920 hp at 102 rpm.

At a length of 89 feet and a height of 44 feet, the total engine weight is 2300 tons - the crankshaft alone weighs 300 tons.

Tugboat EMD 16-645E3 blow down and start-up
FL92002


Published on Jan 14, 2017
We are in the engine room of an old tug built in 1960 by Blount Marine, where we see the full blow down and start-up of the Roots Blown EMD 16-645E3 engine. Enjoy the view as the engineer opens up all of the air valve cocks and blows the engine down to clear it of any moisture, then closes them up and starts the engine up. After the engine is started, listen to the engine as it revs a bit, after giving a bit of pressure to the lay shaft. If you have any questions about the video, feel free to message me. Comments are welcome. The video was taken on January 13th, 2017

Published on Jul 26, 2016
The Steamship Shieldhall is the largest working steam ship in Britain. A member of the National Historic Fleet she serves as a sea going tribute to Britain's maritime heritage. This video focuses on the Ships twin 800HP triple expansion engines and boiler room. Built by Lobnitz & Co., of Renfrew on the River Clyde in 1955, the Shieldhall was one of the last reciprocating steam ships in the world, running until 1985. Based in Southampton, she operates and number of sailings each year. To book trips and more information visit ss-shieldhall.co.uk

GGLS — Marine Triple-Expansion Steam Engine In Operation
paralleler


Published on Aug 2, 2016
On 20MAY2012, the Liberty Ship SS JEREMIAH O'BRIEN set sail for a champaign toast to the Battleship IOWA (BB-61) as it began its journey to San Pedro to become a museum there. Due to high winds causing heavy seas, the departure of the IOWA was moved to 26MAY2012. During cruises of the O'BRIEN, guests are allowed in controlled numbers to enter the engine room during its operation. It is REALLY something to see. My father started his career as a wiper on marine recipricating steam engines.

Wärtsilä Introduces Gas-Fueled Version of ‘World’s Most Efficient 4-Stroke Diesel Engine’

November 20, 2017 by gCaptain

Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has introduced a gas-fueled version of its Wärtsilä 31 marine engine, which is recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s most efficient 4-stroke diesel engine.

The engine, dubbed the Wärtsilä 31SG, builds on the efficiency of the successful Wärtsilä 31 engine, but with added flexibility and efficiency compared to its conventionally-fueled and dual-fuel predecessor.

“The defining feature of the Wärtsilä 31SG is its ability to achieve simple-cycle efficiency levels in excess of 50 % (compared to around 40 % with modern gas turbines), which represents a milestone achievement in the energy sector,” according to Wärtsilä. “In addition to reducing emissions, this higher efficiency offers the potential for considerable cost savings to power producers.”

The 20-cylinder, spark-ignited Wärtsilä 31SG produces 12 MW of power. The specially designed robust engine structure has an unprecedented brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) of 30 bar, allowing it to fully accommodate all the benefits of two-stage turbocharging, explains Wärtsilä.

“Another huge benefit made possible by the Wärtsilä 31SG is the increased flexibility which enables rapid response to continuously changing load patterns, especially within systems having a notable share of solar and wind energy. The engine can be continuously operated at 10 percent load, and can reach full load in two minutes from the start command. This flexibility overcomes the challenge created by the daily stops and starts that are inevitable with output from renewable sources,” the company says.
