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.
