Abstract:Existing theories describe corrosive wear in crosshead diesel engines in terms of acid condensation, when the temperature in the combustion space drops below the dew point. Here a theory is proposed which stresses the role of alkaline cylinder lubricants in protecting the metal surface. Calculated liner wear rates as a function of fuel sulphur content, feed rate and alkalinity of the oil, and axial position are in satisfactory agreement with experimental data.
