How does the Diesel Engine work?

In 1897, Rudolf Diesel built the first well-known high-compression engine. Since then, the diesel engine has evolved into one of the world’s most capable and reliable forms of generating power to do work.

In today’s modern diesel engines, internal combustion results in expansion of high-temperature, high-pressure gases, which in turn move pistons, transforming chemical energy into mechanical energy.

Future development goals for the diesel engine focus on improvements of exhaust emissions, reduction of fuel consumption, and increase of lifespan.

Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Diesel engines are designed for continuous application, hence due to the wear of components, it carries a defined life span. A diesel engine’s longevity, durability, and reliability are dependent on the below factors –

    1. The overall design of a diesel engine and the designer’s input to reduce the risk of parts and components failing.
    2. The grade of fuel filled into the diesel engine.
    3. Preventative maintenance frequency and grade/quality of filtration, oils and lubricants used.
    4. The application/environment of use of the diesel engine.

 Typically, we find that on an average basis major engine brands are due for rebuild around 20 000 hours of operation.
