A good understanding of your staff for the monitoring of machines and plants has a direct influence on the lifetime and reliability of the plants.

Basic Oil Seminar

Oil is used in various crucial different applications and has different important tasks to fulfil. Lubrication oil is used to avoid friction between moving parts and therefore to avoid wear or damages.
Hydraulic oil is used to transmit forces and the hydraulic systems are used in nearly all industries. Oils are also expected to cool or to avoid contaminations which would cause harm to the engine. Oils in modern equipment are complex and expensive liquids. It is therefore important to understand and maintain the oil. Oil can tell us long stories about the performance of the equipment.

Potable Water

Water is an important topic onboard a vessel which due to different regulations concerning it also a quite complicated one. As key topics we have identified Potable Water, Sewage Water and Ballast Water for which we each offer training courses.
If you would like to combine topics let us know and we will work on a customized seminar that is tailored to your needs. Our experienced seminar speaker will tackle topics that need to be addressed as well as answer questions which originate from the daily work experience of the participants.

Safe potable water secures good health!

With help of the International Health Regulations (IHR) from the World Health Organisation (WHO) wurden weitere internationale Vorschriften hinsichtlich der Überwachung der Trinkwasserqualität forciert. Soon these regulations applied also  for the Potable Water on Seagoing vessels.The comliance of these Regulations is now part of the certificate for ship hygiene. The monitoring and control mechanisms are set out  in detail in the Guide for Ship Sanitation of the World Health Organisation (WHO).
The following things are described:

  • Systems that need to be monitored.

  • Methods and frequency of monitoring

  • Requirements for the records.

The guidelines for water hygiene were developed in close cooperation with the international Labor Oranisation (ILO) and the Internationale Maritimen Organisation (IMO).  Besides SOLAS, MARPOL and the STCW convention is the MLC 2006 the fourth cornerstoneof the IMO´s set of rules.  After the entry into force of MLC 2006 every seagoing vessel needs a certificate of compliance with these guidelines.

Cylinder Drain Oil

Cylinder oil in a main engine has three main tasks:

  • it should lubricate the engine to have an acceptable low wear level

  • it has to neutralize the sulphuric acid to avoid unexpected acid corrosion in the liner

  • Es hat Reinigungsaufgaben, um vorhandene Partikel abzutransportieren.

By analysing scrapedown oil collected from the scavenge space shipboard personnel are able to monitor the condition of the engine’s cylinders and detect changes as they occur. This task helps to protect the engine, optimise the feed rate, monitor for mechanical & corrosive wear and reduce maintenance and operating costs.

Protect the liner of your engine!

Vibration Analysis

Vibration diagnostics tools are here to help us to predict the machine failures. When predictive maintenance is applied and the machines are checked regularly, machine faults can be discovered at an early stage and appropriate action can be taken. By doing so you can avoid unexpected machine shutdowns and you can prevent replacement of parts which are still in good condition.
To use the tools effectively and to help with the implementation CMT offers a Vibration seminar. Depending on the level of the knowledge of the participants the seminar can be amended accordingly. Also in some cases an on site training may be beneficial so make sure to let us know your requirements.

Increase the lifetime of your equipment!

The performance of vibration analysis is based on the fact, that physical processes such as friction, impacts, etc. can be measured directly. Vibration Analysis can be applied to virtually all rotating systems. The key to success lies in great sensitivity and simultaneous robustness of this special measuring and testing technology.

Diesel Performance

The challenge of upholding a maintenance regime on board ships is to protect the vessel against costly downtime and to operate it cost effectively. Engine maintenance can be planned, thus saving in parts and labour by changing engine parts based on need, not based on timing intervals.
Slow or late combustion is one of the most common problems in diesel engine operation. Balancing the cylinder load extends engine life, increases efficiency, and reduces emissions to assist with environmental compliance. Proper ignition timing reduces the exhaust gas temperature and rate of excess carbon build-up. Tuning the engine may reduce specific fuel oil consumption resulting in significant savings which are paramount to a ship owner´s bottom line.

Improve the efficiency of your engine!

Slow or late combustion is one of the most common problems. balancing the load of the individual cylinders increases the lifetime of the engine and its components. In addition, efficiency is increased and the environmental impact of harmful exhaust gases is reduced. A well adjustet point of ignition reduces the exhaust gas temperature and the amount of carbon deposits. The correct setting of the diesel engine also ensures optimized fuel consumption and forms a potential for considerable savings.
