In this Article,I have added what are the advantages of crosshead type engine ?
The advantage of crosshead type engine are following :-
- The Cross head type engine are able to devlop higher power at lower rotational speed of the engine than trunk type engines.It is because the space available for the crosshead bearing is greater than the space within the piston for gudgeon bearing assembly.
- The combustion product contamination of crankcase lube oil is less than the trunk type engine.
- Total costs of lubricants of crosshead engine is less than the trunk type engine having same power.
