THE VALUE OF ASSET INTELLIGENCE

DETECTING FAULTS
BEFORE FAILURE

 

Cat® Asset Intelligence helped identify a faulty fuel injector for a main engine for an Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV).

This was identified using Cat® Asset Intelligence to assess the difference in exhaust temperatures between cylinder banks at different operating modes. This diagnosis was confirmed and a simple repair saved ~5% in fuel consumption at idle speed and prevented a potential future failure that could have cost $750,000 in downtime and repairs.

USING DATA TO
IDENTIFY PROBLEMS

 

Remote experts used Cat® Asset Intelligence to identify an exhaust manifold issue to prevent a costly engine failure and excess energy consumption.

Cat® Asset Intelligence analytics identified a high variance in exhaust gas temperature, coupled with a larger than expected difference in air manifold pressure. An expert quickly identified the root cause as either an exhaust manifold leak or a seized open bypass valve. The chief engineer was alerted and addressed the problem.

FINDING ISSUES
THROUGH ANALYTICS

 

Cat® Asset Intelligence analytics identified high fluctuations in fuel inlet pressure for an auxiliary engine on a container ship.

A quick review by the Cat® Asset Intelligence team identified the likely problem being a fuel dampener out of adjustment and provided the reference documentation for the ship’s crew to adjust the dampener. If this was not addressed, the fluctuating fuel inlet pressure could have masked much more serious issues such as clogged fuel filters, rack misalignment, or loss of load.

PROVIDING AN EXTRA
LAYER OF ANALYSIS

 

On a large cargo ship, Cat® Asset Intelligence identified persistent fuel oil inlet temperature spikes, not identified during periodic logs recorded by ship’s crew or monitoring system.

Providing fuel at an increased temperature reduces the viscosity of the fuel and the capability to lubricate, increasing the potential for damage to the injection components. As well, the heightened fuel temperature reduces the engine power and thus the fuel performance of the engine. Crew was notified and inspected alignment of fuel oil heater and corrected.
