Wärtsilä Cylinder liner temperature monitoring system

While engine breakdown in a power plant is not common, the risk increases in peaking plants with frequent engine start/stop and where load fluctuates heavily. Avoiding breakdown is also crucial for power plants operating in island mode in remote locations. Abnormal piston behaviour increases cylinder liner temperatures, which may cause piston scuffing or breakdown in case of piston seizure – ultimately leading to an unexpected engine stop. Unexpected stops result in lost production and revenue, repair costs and even possible financial penalties. The Wärtsilä Cylinder liner temperature monitoring system for Wärtsilä 32 engines uses real-time monitoring to help prevent breakdowns in the case of abnormal piston behaviour.

    Technical info
    • The Wärtsilä Cylinder liner temperature monitoring system increases the safety and reliability of engine operation through continuous monitoring
    • To prevent breakdown, the system generates an alarm and automatically shuts down the engine if the monitored temperature values exceed specified limits
    • The system enables you to follow up trends and historical data to support more effective condition-based maintenance
    Benefits
    • Prevent damage to Wärtsilä 32 engines by using real-time cylinder monitoring
    • Increase the reliability and safety of your power plant operations
    • Use collected data and trends to improve condition-based maintenance (CBM) – for customers with a valid CBM agreement with Wärtsilä
    Applicability
    Available as a retrofit solution for power plants with Wärtsilä 32 engines. The system is already standard in Wärtsilä 34SG and marine Wärtsilä 32 installations.
