Cummins KT38-M800 Marine Engine and Spare Parts

The Cummins KT38-M800 Marine Main Engine is a V Type 12-cylinder, 38-liter four-stroke engine with a bore and stroke of 159 mm (6.25 in). Operating at 1800 RPM, the KT38-M800 Marine Main Engine is equipped with a CMS PT Fuel System and a turbocharger, ensuring compliance with IMO-NOx requirements set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO). It delivers a continuous power of 800 HP (596 kW) at 1800 RPM, with a maximum torque of 3484 N.m at 1500 RPM.

Hawks Parts offers both heat exchanger cooling and keel cooling options for marine main engines, based on standard CCEC marine main engines. Additionally, we provide complete propulsion systems, including the marine engine, gearbox, shaft, and propeller, offering a comprehensive power system solution.

Hawks Parts is committed to providing full life cycle services for all customers, covering design, power system supply, installation, commissioning, after-sales service training, spare parts supply, troubleshooting, and overhaul technical support.

All CCEC marine main engines come equipped with a dry-type exhaust system, including a dry-type exhaust manifold and dry-type turbocharger. Hawks Parts also offers upgrading services for water-cooled exhaust systems, modifying dry-type exhaust systems into water-cooled exhaust systems, which are often requested for passenger boat projects due to their importance and benefits.

Advantages of the Cummins KT38-M800 Marine Engine include:

  1. Integrated Design: The cylinder block and cylinder head feature an integrated design, minimizing the risk of water and oil leakage and reducing failure rates.
  2. Enhanced Durability: Strengthened cylinder liners and chrome-plated piston rings improve engine durability and prolong its lifespan.
  3. Compliance with Regulations: The engine meets the requirements of China Inland River 1, China Inland River 2, and IMO Tier 2 stage emission regulations. It adopts the BHT3B supercharger optimized by Chongqing CMI for marine engines, enhancing emissions control and engine reliability.
  4. Efficient Fuel Combustion: High injection pressure, overspeed protection, low-pressure fuel supply, and fewer pipelines contribute to full fuel combustion and high-efficiency energy-saving effects.
  5. ESTC Electronic Oil Timing Control Valve: Equipped with an ESTC electronic oil timing control valve, the engine accurately supplements and adjusts timing, improving combustion smoke color at low idle speeds.
  6. Reasonable Exhaust System Design: The exhaust system design by Chongqing CMI incorporates a water-cooled supercharger and water-cooled exhaust pipe, reducing engine surface temperatures and meeting SOLAS safety regulations.
