STANDARDISATION OF DIESEL LOCOMOTIVES. PREVENTION OF CORROSION IN DIESEL ENGINE COOLING CIRCUITS. (TEXT AND APPENDICES)
The Report, resulting from a comparison between the experience obtained by eight Administrations, gives a description of the various aspects of the damage caused by corrosion and a study of its process of development. It contains indications concerning the various measures which can be taken to prevent and repair such damage, and, in particular, details regarding the processes adopted for water treatment. Follwing acceptance (homologation) tests on engines, proposals are made regarding the limit values which can be allowed as far as the various types of corrosion are concerned. Information is given regarding the studies to be pursued or to be undertaken. The report also contains an extensive bibliography, a glossary in 5 languages and an album with photographs of corrosion phenomena on various components, particularly cylinder liners and cylinder blocks. The Working Group has already compiled two reports relating to the maintenance of diesel engines, one concerning crankshafts (Report No. 12), the other concerning pistons, gudgeon pins, piston rings and cylinder liners (Report No. 14).
