Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes practical sessions and demonstration where participants carryout diesel engine and crane maintenance. Theory learnt in the class will be applied using a mobile crane through hands-on practical sessions. The diesel engine produces far more useful torque per rated horsepower than spark ignition (Sl) gasoline engines or gas turbines. Diesel engines are much more efficient, durable and reliable than any other heat engine. US diesel engine manufacturers warranty their Class 7 & 8 heavy-duty truck engines for 500,000 miles! In other words, the diesel engine powered vehicles are the most economical to own and operate. Like most other construction equipment, cranes of all types are powered by diesel engines. This course is designed to provide a good overview of the maintenance, troubleshooting and service of diesel engines and cranes. It will cover system operation, engine specifications, hydraulic system, troubleshooting, lubrication and maintenance, testing and adjusting as well as a detailed account of the causes of engine malfunctions and their solutions. In addition to the diesel engine, the course will discuss all maintenance issues related to crane components.Through interactive lectures, discussions, case studies, exercises and videos, the first four days of the course will cover everything related to diesel engines from components up to maintenance. The last day of the course (day 5) will be conducted in a workshop where participants will be given hands-on experience on operating, testing, troubleshooting and maintenance of a diesel engine.
