  • Switching from diesel to CNG or LNG fueled engines

    Gas engine fact: there are more than 28,000 engines in service in the refuse industry worldwide. Over the past several years, more and more American refuse companies have been considering the change from diesel to either CNG (compressed natural gas) or LNG (liquefied natural gas) fueled engines in their collection fleets. This article will discuss some components to consider before transitioning ...

  • A computational study of compressor surge during transient operation of turbocharged diesel engines

    The transient response of turbocharged diesel engines is of great importance, especially when compressor surge is likely to occur. Turbocharger compressor surge is a dynamic instability mode that can generate air mass flow rate and pressure rise oscillations of large amplitude, and may also induce severe torsional loading to the turbocharger shaft. In this paper, an effort is made to study by ...

  • On the Ground with Diesel Corrosion - Case Study

    When the EPA revealed the results of its study in July on the increasing presence of substantial corrosion in diesel fuel tanks, it proved that the problem is much larger than anyone anticipated. The facts are staggering: 83%of the diesel tank systems exhibited moderate-to-severe corrosion. 75%of the owner/operators of those diesel tanks had no idea it was ...

  • Fault diagnosis of a diesel engine by using the analysis of instantaneous angular speed with a flexible model

    Engine shaft instantaneous angular speed (IAS) can be used to diagnose combustion related faults and other faults affecting the output of engines, especially for small-scale diesel generators. Unfortunately, it is difficult to apply this technology to monitoring the operational condition of a marine propulsion diesel engine due to its complex shafting systems and multiple factors affecting the ...

  • Diesel dispersion is the most demanded light oil products today

    Diesel dispersion is the viscous, hardly evaporated combustible liquid received from oil kerosene-gasoil fractions, by their distillation. It is applied generally, as fuel for trucks, cars, railway transport, a water transport, and also agricultural machinery. All scope of diesel fuel usage is very wide. Diesel dispersion is one of the most demanded light oil products today. This fuel is intended ...

  • Improved Oil Handling and Disposal: Rocklea Diesel Injection Service

     Background Truck mechanical workshops use large quantities of oils. Over time, there is an inevitable build up of spillages to give the traditional image of a messy, dirty workshop environment. This is not desirable when working with diesel injection systems. A high level of cleanliness and precision is essential. Several staff members of Rocklea Diesel Injection Service are ...

  • Large Diameter Impellers Make Trash Pumps More Versatile

    The introduction of these impellers allow for a higher range of discharge pressure. Pumps are available in many types—diaphragm, positive displacement and progressive cavity—but the most common is a centrifugal pump. Centrifugal pumps have an impeller that spins, transferring energy to the fluid by centrifugal force and directing the water to the discharge point within the ...

  • Waterless coolant extends engine life, saves fuel

    Forget about overheating your cooling systems if you use Evans waterless coolant. With a boiling point of 375 degrees and a freezing point of -40 degrees, your engine operates more efficiently and reduces the cooling load on radiator and fan, says Mark Stone of Evans Cooling Systems, Inc. “Water based coolants run at or near their boiling point, while Evans waterless coolants, due to their ...

  • Generation using gas-fuelled engines in South Africa – an overview

    Most gas engines are Otto cycle spark ignition internal combustion reciprocating engines using natural gas as the primary fuel. Smaller models utilise stochiometric combustion while the larger engines are lean burn engines with pre-chamber ignition systems. The engines are coupled with packaged generator sets, ...

  • OEM off-highway `Why aren`t engine OEM`s already using waterless coolant`

    In simple terms, the engine OEMs have been comfortable with existing cooling system arrangements. Engineers leaving school and heading for employment with truck/engine manufactures are educated in the use and limitations of water-based coolants and in many instances, when asked to evaluate the possibility of using a waterless coolant in their engines, they often make assumptions on what they know ...

  • Case study - NAPL forensics analysis at tank farm in Boston

    Ambient Engineering, Inc. (Concord, MA) used Sitelab to investigate and remediate a former tank farm along Boston Harbor contaminated by a large, subsurface plume of commingled diesel fuel and No. 6 fuel oil. Loading racks (above) are suspected to have contributed to most of the site’s contamination. Light Non Aqueous Phase Liquids (LNAPL) collected from 40 monitoring wells were tested ...
