Kistler continuously develops its piezoelectric pressure sensors for large engines to pave the way for efficiency gains and new technologies such as dual or multi-fuel operation. Innovative sensor technology, custom adaptations and lifetime-optimized design: these advantages yield sustainable increases in performance and cost efficiency.
Stricter emission guidelines for marine engines and large stationary engines mean that cylinder pressure monitoring is becoming increasingly important. Continuous monitoring yields many benefits in addition to increased engine efficiency: in particular, optimization of the combustion process – the key to operating dual-fuel engines that are more environment-friendly, but also more complex. With solutions from Kistler, fuel savings of up to 2% per year and per large engine can be achieved – an average reduction of environmental pollution equivalent to about 200 tonnes of CO2.
