Marine Low Speed Diesel Engines (MEP 17) WS1740K
by Griffiths, Denis
Rev. Ed. This book considers the general principles of marine low speed diesel engines and provides examples of engine parts from the three different engine designs to aid understanding of construction, operation, selection and maintenance. Line drawings are used to illustrate fundamental differences in the components between different designs. The book contains a detailed chapter on engine construction. It describes the design and purpose of key engine components, together with their maintenance requirements and common malfunctions.
There is a separate chapter on safety, additional engine systems, monitoring and control. This highlights the potential hazards (and the necessary safeguards) of fire, explosion, hotspots, oil mists and excessive noise.
General guidance is provided on engine selection, installation, operation, maintenance and emission control.
