Hawks Parts offers heat exchanger and keel cooling options for marine main engines, along with complete propulsion systems including marine engine, gearbox, shaft, and propeller as a complete power system solution. we provide comprehensive life cycle services, ranging from design and power system supply to 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 a 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.

Advantages of Cummins KTA38-M1100 Marine Engine

Advantages of Cummins KTA38-M1100 Marine Engine include an integrated design of the cylinder block and head, preventing water and oil leakage and reducing failure rates. Strengthened cylinder liners and chrome-plated piston rings improve engine durability. The engine meets China Inland River 1, China Inland River 2, and IMO TIER2 stage emission regulations, adopting the BHT3B supercharger optimized by Chongqing CMI for marine engines, enhancing reliability and reducing emissions.

With high injection pressure, overspeed protection, low-pressure fuel supply, and fewer pipelines, the engine ensures full fuel combustion and high-efficiency energy-saving effects. Equipped with an ESTC electronic oil timing control valve, it accurately supplements and adjusts timing, improving combustion smoke color at low idle speed. The exhaust system design, including water-cooled superchargers and exhaust pipes, reduces engine surface temperatures and meets SOLAS safety regulations.
