New Engine Peak Meter simplifies condition
monitoring of marine propulsion engines.

The new engine peak meter from Kistler has been designed
to simplify condition monitoring and preventative maintenance
of large marine diesel propulsion engines.

The enhanced data storage capacity and powerful processing provides
statistical analysis of peak combustion chamber pressure over 100
cycles plus an averaged pressure/time curve for accurate combustion
analysis.  Two areas of memory provide storage for twenty records
each to make use in confined spaces easier and minimises errors
when data is being evaluated on a PC using the software supplied.

The enhanced functionality and evaluation software makes the new
engine peak meter ideal for monitoring cylinder pressure of large
marine diesels to identify loss of compression so that corrective
action to be taken as part of planned, out-of-service maintenance,
rather than as an emergency repair.  The evaluation software facilitates
simple representation and recording of both numerical data and
pressure/time combustion curves before (as found) and after (as left)
maintenance and adjustment.  The meter is hand-held and has a
large LCD screen which, combined with the intuitive operating
procedure, provides an easy to use instrument equally suitable for
use in the engine room and the workshop.

The Type 2516A engine peak meter is supplied as a complete kit
in a protective carrying case.  The kit includes the meter, a choice
of pressure sensor, PC data analysis software, cables and accessories.

Kistler Instruments is one of the world’s leading manufacturers
of piezoelectric and piezoresistive precision sensors covering
acceleration, force, pressure and torque.  Established in
Wintherthur (Switzerland) in 1957, Kistler is represented in over
50 countries and has subsidiaries in Germany, France, Italy, UK,
Japan, USA, China, Korea and Singapore.
Heavy investment in research and development, 15% of staff
worldwide are engaged in research and development, has
generated a number of innovations using piezoelectric,
piezoresistive and capacitive techniques to provide solutions
to numerous force, pressure and acceleration measuring problems.
These innovations include the world's first commercial quartz sensor,
two-wire constant current technology to integrate sensors with
microelectronic circuitry, high-temperature pressure sensors for
use up to 400 deg C and three-component force measuring sensors.
