Types of Used Marine Diesel Engines
The marine life is a different experience for machines due to both the saline and hydro states. Purchasing used marine diesel engines require some technical expertise for the buyer to get the value for money. This article will shine some light on the various models of engines, their abilities and adaptability features for such an environment. Each of the engines has undergone through our safety checks, lifespan audits and repairs to enhance their shelf life. We also have the details of previous owners, just in case, there is some information we need that might help in evaluation.
1. Caterpillar – there are two engines on this brand in-store; the 3508 DITA and the D398B
• The 3508 DITA is a strong engine, with a 775 horsepower and 1800 revolutions per minute (RPM). The exhausted system and turbo are both water-cooled, while the flywheel is 18 inch. The governor is mechanical with a keel cooling system.
• The D398B is a 750 horsepower engine with an RPM of 1200. It is one of the popular used marine diesel engines, thanks to its adaptability features. The lifespan and the RPM of this engine can be improved if matched with a V12 component.
