Most engineers are familiar with the importance of regular checks on diesel engine crankshafts and cylinder liner. The old dial gauge for crankshaft alignment checks were time-consuming, unpleasant, dirty and gave uncertain accuracy.
By using Prisma Tibro’s electronic Deflection Indicator DI-5 series the task will be much easier and the accuracy will be improved. As an option to the instrument you can connect the ovality kit to check the cylinder liner ovality and wear comparison.
The Deflection Indicator DI-5 series has been used by large numbers of engineers in over 90 countries worldwide. Our customers are diesel engine manufacturers who equip their engines with an instrument for the service program, service companies and shipping companies.
Four push buttons on the DI-5C panel are used to select, change and accept values on the display such as temperature, engine number, number of cylinders, measurement direction and so on. Just push the OK button to store the value.
On completion of the first cylinder, move the transducer to the next cylinder and store measurement values. The generous measurement range allows the transducer to be moved between cylinders without mechanical adjustment. When all cylinders are completed soft copy can be downloaded to a PC for reference and future comparisons.
Prisma DI Ovality Kit
With smart option DI Ovality Kit for DI5 or DI4 cylinder diameter 180 mm - 600 mm, length of stroke: 870 mm
The ovality kit is designed principally to measure cylinder liner wear and ovality. However, the device can be modified to take measurements from various applications according to your own requirements.
The standard kit contains equipment to measure cylinder liners with diameters of 180-600 mm and stroke up to 870 mm.
The supplied software with the deflection indicator Prisma DI-5C also handles the measurements taken with the ovality kit. By this, you can transfer ovality data to your PC to evaluate and compare, all with graphs and printouts, and more over the measured data can be exported to Excel by installing Prisma DI-5C software
