Cylinder liner monitoring system

Hardware components

The KONGSBERG cylinder liner monitoring system monitors the piston running performance by measuring the temperature of the upper part of the cylinder liners. Increased friction between the piston rings and the cylinder liner creates an elevated temperature level leading to abnormal liner wear and potential piston ring breakage.

Temperature alarm limits can be individually set on the PC work station to give early warning about high thermal load and potential cylinder liner scuffing. Additionally, individual relay output alarms can be provided directly to the cylinder lubrication units in order to temporarily increase the cylinder lubrication.

The KONGSBERG cylinder liner monitoring system consists of high quality temperature sensors and one field-bus signal converter on each cylinder and one common PC work station.

Main benefits

  • No more undetected cylinder liner scuffing problems
  • Fast and reliable response to operational problems
  • Compact and simple installation
  • Stand-alone or fully integrated with the alarm monitoring system
