Although slow steaming has dramatically reduced the problem of abrasive wear, it is still a risk factor and needs to be monitored. Most common problems for abrasive wear in cylinder liners are:

  • Broken or sticking piston rings.
  • Disruption of the cylinders lubricating film caused by water.
  • Presence of CAT fines in the injected fuel.
  • Residue of calcium ash and carbon from burned cylinder lubricant or incomplete combustion.
