Home' Ausmarine : March 2010 Contents Cummins has introduced the latest
technology QSK19 marine engine in the
The engine, which meets US EPA Tier 2
and European Union Stage IIIA emissions
regulations and exceeds IMO Tier 2
requirements, is offered with an output
range of 373kW to 597kW for propulsion as
well as an auxiliary rating of 563kW.
"The 19-litre platform is one of the most
successful ever developed by Cummins,
surpassing any other equivalent engine in
terms of uptime availability," says Troy
Lawson, marine business manager for
Cummins South Pacific.
"The Tier 2 engine builds on that
reputation while meeting the most
stringent emissions regulations in the
world for high horsepower diesels.
"The Tier 2 QSK19 is ideally suited to
commercial fishing vessels, workboats and
The 19-litre in-line six features
Cummins' modular common rail fuel
system that is now used across the
Cummins Quantum Tier 2 high power
The fuel system is fully integrated with
Cummins' Electronic Control Module (ECM)
and allows for multiple nanosecond injection
events per engine revolution for precisely
Each injector has its own integrated
accumulator to keep injection pressures
constant throughout the system. A
high-pressure pump delivers fuel through
double-wall lines to the accumulators and
injectors which are electronically actuated
to provide highly accurate control of
metering and timing.
The system's constant high injection
pressure significantly reduces noise and
vibration across the operating range.
A combination of features enhances
reliability and durability. A single-piece, cast
iron piston, hardened cylinder liners and
premium ceramic surfaced rings significantly
increase the life of the power cylinder.
There is also reduced loading on the
camshaft and overhead rocker levers due to
the fact that camshaft-driven injectors are
eliminated with the use of the common rail
Minimal changes to the engine's
footprint and mounts ensure that new
installations and re-powers are simplified.
The Tier 2 QSK19 is offered with either
keel cooling or an engine-mounted plate-type
heat exchanger for cooling. Additionally, a
water-cooled triple-wall exhaust manifold
and turbocharger are used for added safety
and reduced heat in the engine room.
The Cummins Eliminator oil filtration
system is also offered on the Tier 2 engine
to help reduce maintenance and downtime.
This system replaces the traditional
disposable spin-on "paper" element filters,
thus doing away with the need to replace
and dispose of these filters.
Cummins' Quantum full-authority
electronics monitor operating parameters
such as fuel consumption (instantaneous
and trip), duty cycle, engine load and speed,
while providing diagnostics, prognostics
and complete engine protection.
As part of the electronics package,
Cummins C Command instrument panels
include a selection of display options that
help operators monitor and maximise
vessel operation and performance. Three
systems are offered: C Command basic, C
Command Elite, and C Command Elite
Plus for classed vessels, which provides
touch-screen wheelhouse monitoring.
The Tier 2 QSK19 meets the
requirements of all major classification
societies and is fully SOLAS compliant.
