INCREASING THE SERVICE LIFE OF MEDIUM-SPEED MARINE AND LOCOMOTIVE DIESELS

Results of an experimental investigation are presented in which newly developed lubricating oils, M14VTs and M15GB, were evaluated in relation to their effect on service life of diesel engines. It is demonstrated that through the rational use of these oils and through certain engineering-design changes, it has become possible to provide the necessary engine life for marine and locomotive medium-speed diesels at the level of 1970-1975 requirements. In order to ensure the operability of newly developed diesels and in order to increase the life of current- production diesels, new oils with more effective additives will be required. The determination of viscosity in accordance with GOST 33-66 on oils that have been in service for extended periods is essentially impossible, owing to the opacity and the so-called structural viscosity of these oils. Reliable viscosity values can be obtained on such oils in the Rheo/Hoeppler and Rheotest viscometers.
