THE ENGINE PERFORMANCE PROGRAM--A SYSTEM APPROACH TO ENGINE MAINTENANCE

The combination of engine performance analysis and awareness of chemical technology to assist in maintaining power outputs is an unusual approach to the shipsowner's problems. An increasing number of owners now see the importance of giving ship's staff the modern tools to ensure that their engines are producing acceptable outputs per cylinder and are correctly balanced. This has led to the extensive use of "Combustion Analysers" that produce "out of phase" diagrams per cylinder and calculate all essential information related to pressure, angles, rpm and power.
