CERAMIC COATINGS' INFLUENCES ON MEDIUM SPEED DIESEL ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND RELIABILITY

Ceramic coatings on diesel engine parts offer numerous advantages, including increased reliability; increased durability; increased engine performance; and improved corrosion and wear resistant surfaces. The selection of thermal barrier coating material and coating processes is discussed. Tests are described that were performed on a medium speed engine to develop optimal operation with fuel oil of different qualities. Reduced heat loss to the cooling system is also examined.
