BORESCOPE INSPECTION ENABLES EXTENDED ENGINE OVERHAUL INTERVALS ON RIVER-GOING WORKBOAT

The ALBERT AUBERGER, a barge pusher operating on the Rhine River is powered by three Deutz MWM SBA 8 M 628 engines. Data gathered over 43,000 hours of engine operation indicates the longevity that can be attained with close monitoring of engine condition and wear. In particular, the service history points up the value of endoscopic examination of internal components and shows how this form of inspection can be used to substantially extend the intervals between engine overhauls.
