That's epic... a worker could fall into the cylinder and they wouldn't know until they started it up. Laughing

I read an article about these engines about 2 years ago in a trade magazine. Pretty impressive.

Building those for a living would be an awesome job! Or imagine being one of the engineers that designed it..

They tried, but all the fins all got sucked in during the first intake stroke.

I read an entry about the 14 cylinder one before. It makes around 186,000 horsepower with 5.5 million pounds of torque. Shocked Sounds impresive, but the tankers they put these in are slow as s**t. Laughing

First, you use a small electric motor on the flywheel to start turning the engine over, its something like 20:1 reduction geared! The engine has to heat up from friction to start setting the piston rings.

When its time to start, air is forced into the cylinders as per firing order, its the only way to start something this large.

Once its spinning more than a few rpms, diesel injection takes over and keeps it running. Depending on the area where the ship is, they may switch over to Heavy Fuel Oil, which is black and nasty as hell, but also very cheap.

My dad was a Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marines, and I work on ships too. The majority of these engines are in the 5-7 cylinder range, and yes they are usually 3-4 stories tall, and redline at about 130 rpms. Laughing

Back in the day, to clean the carbon out of a cylinder, they would open the engine and split up the 2-piece connecting rods to disable the cylinder, then remove the head, and then my dad would climb inside the cylinder and clean it manually. Shocked
