B&W Offers Technical
Paper On Advantages Of
New Low-Speed Diesels
A forty-five page technical pa- per entitled "The Low-Speed Die- sel and The Future Energy Sce- nario" has been published by
B&W Diesel, Inc., New York, a subsidiary of B&W Diesel A/S,
Well illustrated with drawings, charts, tables and photographs related to the text, the paper de- scribes technical considerations of the low-speed diesel as the most efficient converter of ther- mal energy into mechanical power.
The paper traces the develop- ment and design parameters of the company's low-speed diesels from the K-GF engines first pro- duced in 1973 to the newly intro- duced L-GB engines. The new engines, the paper states, opti- mize the combination of longer stroke, higher output, higher maximum cylinder pressure, and the latest turbochargers produc- ing high-thermal efficiency.
The new engines range from the L-35 GB/E to the largest, the L-90 GB/E. The L-35 has a 350-mm cylinder bore and a stroke of 1,050 mm which apply for the first time a stroke-bore ratio of 3:1. The cylinder output ranges from 690 bhp at 200 rpm to 405 bhp at 163 rpm. Specific fuel oil consumption down to 129 g/bhph is guaranteed.
The largest of the new engines is the L-90 GB/E which is based on the existing and well-proven
GFCA design. The cylinder out- put ranges from 4,570 at 97 rpm to 2,740 bhp at 79 rpm. Specific fuel oil consumption down to 126 g/bhph is guaranteed. Most of the GB/GBE engines will be available starting in 1983. For a free copy of the paper,
