Excerpt from The Tiger, Vol. 11: March, 1914

The Diesel motor is a mechanism capable of burning the very low grades of fuel oils with' perfect results. The fuel is very cheap, and only a minimum quantity is necessary for the engine's consumption.

The principle of the engine does not resemble the ordinary gas or steam engine in the idea of internal combustion.

The motor is constructed in several types ranging from one cylinder up to eight, the latter developing over horsepower.

The principle of the power impulse of the motor is as follows: On the upstroke of the piston pure air is compressed in the working cylinder to a high pressure, and thereby becomes heated above the ash point of the fuel oil. Shortly before the end of the up stroke fuel oil is injected under a very high pressure. The oil starts to burn immediately, and combustion under steady pressure takes place at first, and then the products of combustion worked by steady expansion. At the end of the stroke the burnt gases are exhausted through ports uncovered by the piston, and by certain novel arrangements provided, the cylinders are scavenged and filled with pure air, which is then compressed and the cycle repeated.

Several distinctive companies have undertaken the construction of the Diesel engine. Among others are the Sulzer Diesel and the more modern Reiherstieg motor. The former has been in actual service, but the latter as yet has only been tried in the shops. The building of a new ship has delayed its installation for actual service.

The Sulzer Diesel was installed in the new ship Monte Penedo. So far her services have proved satisfactory, although we must admit there is a large gap to be bridged before the typical shipowner will be satisfied.
