Gasoline & Diesel Engines
/ Automotive Performance
Diesel Engines and
We offer a large array
of testing and analysis services related to internal
combustion engines. Industrial
diesel engines sometimes fail in service and require analysis
to determine the cause of the failure and to determine the
most effective repair procedures.
We also provide engineering support for design changes
and for new component development.
We have assisted in
many diesel engine projects in engines ranging from small
Perkins/Detroit/Cummins engines to much larger Cat/EMD/Cleveland/MAN/GE/Nordberg/Sulzer engines.
We can solve problems with individual components,
balance problems, over-stress problems, and part design.
We have experience aboard vessels operated by
Washington State Ferries, the US Navy, foreign cruise liners,
foreign and domestic shipping companies, commercial fishing
companies from the US, Russia and S. Korea.
We also have experience on several different types of
locomotives and their drive systems.
We have the in-house
capability to assess engine performance potential and to
recommend upgrade changes for a particular engine design.
We occasionally build engines for Clients.
We are currently building two high performance street
engines in our laboratory. These engine builds are done by our engineering staff and
overseen as with any regular work project in the laboratory.
The environment is clean and temperature controlled.
We can diagnose broken
parts, make part upgrade recommendations, or give some sound
engineering guidance on your rebuild project.
We are currently
expanding our services in this area.
