CMT is currently working on a project for the early detection of liner scuffing.
During operation abrasion from unlubricated metal contact can quickly become a great problem with great financial damage. Reports out of the industry are indicating that the number of such incidents may greatly increase with the usage of the new low Sulphur fuels. In cooperation with MAN, Paul Gunton has published an interesting article for Shipinsight regarding that topic. MAN noticed that engines using new 0.5% sulfur fuels show increased liner scuffing.
Since the marine industry has to tackle this problem, we are working on a technical solution for the detection of such events. We are currently looking for trial partners out of the Marine industry and are welcoming anybody to get in touch with us.
If you are interested in becoming one of our project partners, please contact our technical department.
The Maintenance 2020 in Dortmund has set a new visitor record this year. On the 12th and 13th February 2020, more than 5.700 visitors visited the leading trade fair for industrial maintenance. This is an increase of 6% over the previous year.
We are very happy that we were able to contribute to this successful fair. For the 2 rewarding days we want to thank the organizers on the one hand, but the even greater thanks goes to the numerous visitors who were able to learn about the latest technology in condition monitoring at our stand.
The vibration analyzer VA5 as well as the other devices of our vibration measurements help many companies to gain more control over their machines and to detect damage in time.

The IBIA is concerned about the general knowledge for the implementation of the IMO 2020 regulations and the coherent increasing use of low sulfur fuels. The fuels are produced to be stable against asphaltenic sludge but mixing different fuels can relate into sludge build up and damage to fuel oil systems.
During the Presentation of our Managing Director Matthias Winkler on the IMarEST meeting they have learned more about our Compatibility Tester and its efficiency and easy use. The quick test is an easy way to avoid all problems that mixing incompatible fuels can cause. Smooth operation of your engine is no mystery but requires sufficient care.
Furthermore, the handheld PREMET® Devices and the Acoustic Emission Sensor can give even more insight for a trouble-free operation of your propulsion plant.
As the authors of IMarEST said: "For a detailed analysis of problems shown by an online system, a handheld system can be useful. Also, the Auxiliary Engines are often neglected when the main engine is monitored online and hence consume more fuel than needed."
The presentation was also commented by Nikeel Idnani, Honorary Secretary of the IMarEST UAE branch as he liked the introduction of "innovative ways of monitoring the complete combustion process to reduce fuel consumption and emissions"
To get your sulfur levels striving for the IMO 2050 target a combination of low sulfur fuels and efficient performance is inevitable.

Our managing director Matthias Winkler was part of the IMarEST meeting on the 12th December. He was holding a very requested presentation about fuel oil compatibility and diesel performance measurements especially with regard to the upcoming sulfur limit in the shipping industry. Problems with compatibility have been more recent than ever with the ISO 23263. The presentation or even more the following discussion has shown us, that there are still many questions to be answered.
For further information we have provided a few slides of the presentation for you:
The Diesel Performance was a second big point on the meeting. Mr Winkler demonstrated all the advantages of the newest generation of PREMET® devices especially in combination with the PREMET® Cloud.
For supplementary informations on the meeting:
Our representatives are the experts for the local markets and are a fundamental part of CMT. That is why we organized a dealer meeting to improve our collaboration in 2017. Due to the overwhelming success, the dealer meeting has become a fixed venue we are organizing every 2 years.
From the 5th to the 7th of November 2019, more than 25 agents from all over the world visited us to take part in this event. This year's focus was on the topic of diesel performance analysis with the new PREMET® units and the PREMET® Cloud, the IMO 2020 regulations and their impact, XRF analyzers and the brand new VA5 vibration analyser.
It has been 3 fully packed but wonderful and interesting days and we would like to thank our agents for the numerous and active participation. Our dealers made the meeting a big success.
If you want to contact your agent you will find him on our Dealer Network.
Take a little look into the workshops we organised in our company:
The renowned magazine "The Motorship" has published an interesting article about reducing greenhouse gases. The article is called "A Condition Monitoring Strategy for Conventional Emission Optimization Engines".
Optimising the performance of engines has been identified as a straightforward method of reducing the greenhouse gas emissions and operational costs of any seagoing vessel. While modern main engines are increasingly monitored 24/7 with an online system already provided by the manufacturer, the auxiliary engines are not always included and as a result can consume more fuel than necessary.
“The actual values of many diesel engines rarely correspond to the original settings from the shop or sea trial, which translates into performance losses,” explains Matthias Winkler, Managing Director of CM Technologies GmbH. “This manifests itself as increased fuel consumption, which increases operating costs. A poorly balanced engine often consumes up to two percent more fuel.”
This years Nor-Shipping in Oslo was fuelled by nice conversations on our booth and well visited lectures on stage. Our thanks for the successfully fair belongs to all the guests who made their way to the Norway Trade Fairs even on the rainy Thursday. The Nor-Shipping had 900 exhibitors from 48 different countries and was expecting about 35.000 visitors. All in all, we had a success like the last one two years ago and are happy to participate again in two years.
The Nor-Shipping 2019 is just around the corner and the global maritime and ocean industries are gearing
up for the most important event week in the business calendar. 1,000 exhibiting companies, 35,000
delegates and hundreds of networking and knowledge sharing opportunities await.
CM Technologies GmbH will be attending this years well-known Nor-Shipping Exhibition in Oslo.
Meet us from the 4th to 7th June at our stand X99 to learn more about the maintenance of your machines.
CM Technologies GmbH took part again in the Maintenance fair in Dortmund this year.
On February 20 and 21, more than 5,300 visitors gatherd more information about the maintenance of their systems.
CMT showed our product line of vibration equipment and devices for oil condition monitoring.
