Inclination test rigs for large marine diesel engines and motor generator units from CFM Schiller are particularly designed for examination of the water and lubrication system in those engines.
CFM Schiller has developed these test rigs for the marine and offshore industry to comply with the very strict requirements regarding operating safety of technical equipment and machinery. Guidelines for type approval tests stipulate that marine engines must operate reliably and faultlessly under an inclination of 25° in order to guarantee continuous power supply to ships and oil platforms at all times.
By order of a world-famous manufacturer of large marine diesel engines, CFM Schiller has developed a 2-axial inclination test rig, which simulates the required angle of list for ships and offshore platforms. The inclination test rig can provide inclinations of 25° in both axes; respectively longitudinal axis and transversal axis of the engine.
The maximum weight of the specimens, comprising diesel engine and generator, is 200 tons. Because of the enormous weight, a heavy-duty crane is necessary to place the specimens on the test rig. If no crane is available, the entire test rig can be disconnected from the ground, put on air cushions, and can then be moved to another workshop with suitable crane. This inclination test rig is the very first of its kind – worldwide.
Dimensions and Weight: Test rig weight: 197 t | Length: 16 500 mm (54.13’) | Width: 6 350 mm (20.83’) | Height: 4 500 mm (14.76’)
