Want to prolong the lifetime of your engines?

The operating conditions of engines can result in abnormal liner wear and seized or broken piston rings. To increase the lifetime of engines and reduce costs it is crucial to monitor the condition of the engines and perform maintenance regularly.
By using high-quality precision equipment, it is possible to reduce liner wear and piston ring wear and prevent engine failure and off-hire situations.

Chris-Marine offers complete monitoring and maintenance solutions for all types of diesel and gas engines that provide electricity for base load, grid stability, emergency generators and oil & gas applications. The solutions include monitoring and maintenance equipment, service of equipment, and training conducted by super-users. This means that our customers get everything they need from one global supplier, which significantly facilitates the running of their engines.

PTL at a glance
PTL is a portable lathe used for in-situ machining of engine frames on medium speed diesel engines. It is a highly versatile, precise, and robust machine, which has a stepless feed for vertical and horizontal movements. PTL can be equipped with mounting adapters specifically designed for individual engine types. PTL has a capacity of machining from Ø300 to Ø900mm and operates at three different levels: upper liner (machining of landing surface and upper guiding surface), lower liner (machining of the lower sealing surface) and the intermediate liner (machining of sealing/guiding surface).

However, machining of engine frames is a complicated job which requires skilled personnel who are used to performing such maintenance. Therefore, our service teams are busy helping our customers around the world with their PTL jobs. Without professional machining of liner surfaces there is a significant risk of water leakages and engine downtime. Chris-Marine’s service teams have hands-on experience of jobs on cruise ships and power barges as well as at power plants and in mines. They also provide advice and support to our customers’ own technical crews.

Our teams are often involved in projects like PTL machining with our own technicians, training our customers’ technicians to use PTL, as well as remote support for customer technicians doing a PTL job. By having this kind of flexibility, we not only help our customers reduce costs, but also provide them with more service options to choose from. In addition, we offer rental options for customers who wish to carry out a PTL job but aren’t interested in purchasing a machine.
