We have released our new C20 BearingMaster, bearing temperature monitoring system for 2-stroke engines.
The C20 BearingMaster, is based on our DataChief and AutoChief C20 automation
systems, and promises to be the most reliable bearing temperature monitoring system
available and therefore the most protective against engine damage through overheating.
In addition to running parallel with existing automation systems, C20 BearingMaster
also makes use of other Kongsberg Maritime technology. The Midi Operator Station
33 (MOS 33) can be used for local display of temperatures and the GB-100 Sentry
system is integrated to offer real-time monitoring of crosshead and crank pin bearing
temperatures. Main bearing temperatures are measured by using our custom designed
PT100 sensors as part of the core C20 BearingMaster system.
Designed for use on all types of Sulzer RTA/RTF engines or MAN B&W MC-C/ME-C
engines, the system is as relevant to retrofit of existing engines as it is to newbuild
vessels. In order to further facilitate ease of retrofitting, Kongsberg Maritime
has formed a cooperative alliance with Goltens, who will assist in retrofit installations.
