Control and safety devices for marine diesel engine
The principal control device on any engine is the governor. It governs or controls the engine speed at some fixed value while power output changes to meet demand. This is achieved by the governor automatically adjusting the engine fuel pump settings to meet the desired load at the set speed.
Governors for diesel engines are usually made up of two systems: a speed sensing arrangement and a hydraulic unit which operates on the fuel pumps to change the engine power output.
A flyweight assembly is used to detect engine speed. Two flyweights are fitted to a plate or ballhead which rotates about a vertical axis driven by a gear wheel . The action of centrifugal force throws the weights outwards; this lifts the vertical spindle and compresses the spring until an equilibrium situation is reached. The equilibrium position or set speed may be changed by the speed selector which alters the spring compression.
Our well equipped workshop, freely available spare parts and proficient staff enable us to provide efficient and high quality service and repair of the following governing equipment:
Woodward we specialise in the overhaul, service and repair of Woodward Governor equipment (including types PG-PL, PSG, PGR, Caterpillar 3161, UG-8, UG-10, EG3P and EG6P Actuators, EGB10P and more) Diesel Kiki Zexel Europa R/E Russian Governor
We can offer new or reconditioned governors.
Reconditioned governors are built to new specifications using new seals, gaskets, bearings, springs etc. Final assemblies are fully tested In-House.
Where possible, service exchange units will be supplied in order to reduce expensive downtime.
