RATING DEFINITIONS AND CONDITIONS
B-Rating (heavy duty)
% Load Factor: 40 to 80 % Time at Rated RPM: up to
40 Typical Time at Full Load: 10 hours out of 12 Typical
Hour/Year: 3000 to 5000 Typical Applications: For
vessels operating at rated load and rated speed up to
80% of the time with some load cycling (40% to 80%
load factor). Typical applications could include but are
not limited to vessels such as mid-water trawlers, purse
seiner, crew and supply boats, ferries, or towboats.
Typical operation ranges from 3000 to 5000 hours per
year.
Power
at declared engine speed is in accordance with
ISO3046-1:2002E. Caterpillar maintains
ISO9001:1994/QS-9000 approved engine test facilities
to assure accurate calibration of test equipment.
Electronically controlled engines are set at the factory at
the advertised power corrected to standard ambient
conditions. The published fuel consumption rates are in
accordance with ISO3046-1:2002E.
Fuel rates
are based on fuel oil of 35 API [16C (60F)] gravity
having an LHV of 42 780 kJ/kg (18,390 Btu/lb)when
used at 29C (85F) and weighing 838.9 g/L (7.001
lb/U.S. gal). Additional ratings may be available for
specific customer requirements. Consult your Caterpillar
representative for additional information.
Performance data is calculated in accordance with tolerances and conditions stated in this specification sheet and is
only intended for purposes of comparison with other manufacturer's engines. Actual engine performance may vary
according to the particular application of the engine and operating conditions beyond Caterpillar's control.
Power produced at the flywheel will be within standard tolerances up to 49 C (120 F) combustion air temperature
measured at the air cleaner inlet, and fuel temperature up to 52 C (125F) measured at the fuel filter base. Power
rated in accordance with NMMA procedure as crankshaft power. Reduce crankshaft power by 3% for propeller shaft
power.

A&I Checklist
Introduction
Marine engine installations require careful consideration
to ensure reliable and economical performance. The
following checklist is provided to highlight some of the
more important areas which should be considered when
applying and installing marine engines. Detailed
information regarding these guidelines can be found in
the Cat Marine Engine Application and Installation
Guide, Form LEGM4724-4737.
For vessels required to meet standards of marine
classification societies or government agencies, the
appropriate society or agency should be consulted on
their current requirements. Brief information on the
various internationally recognized marine classification
societies with whom Caterpillar has homologation
agreements is given in the Technical Marketing
Information on- line system or microfiche.
The following list is offered as a guide to call attention to
the different factors which must be taken into
consideration when planning or executing a marine
installation. Proper review of each factor will help ensure
a satisfactory installation.

applied rating?
3. Is the fuel ratio control functioning properly and set
correctly?

aftercooled engines, is water of the right temperature
available for the aftercooler?
Electrical System
1. Are engine accessory electrical circuits properly fused
or protected by circuit breakers?
2. Are wires properly grouped, identified, and securely
fastened?
3. Are dissimilar metals in contact with sea water
electrically isolated from each other?

1. Does the installation require use of instruments in both
engine compartment and pilot house?
2. If pilot house instrument panel is required, are the
instruments properly wired or connected?
3. Are safety (alarm and/or shutdown) contactors
properly wired, properly set, and working?

accessible?
7. If engine is heat exchanger cooled, are zinc plugs
readily accessible and clearly marked? Are spare zinc
plugs available on board?
Combustion Air
1. Is combustion air ducted directly to the engine air
cleaner(s) from outside the engine room? (Good
practice)
2. Are combustion air ducts equipped with baffles to
prevent water from reaching the engine air cleaner(s)?
3. Are combustion air ducts of adequate size and
properly routed to hold down intake air restriction to
within the recommended limits?
4. If standard air cleaners are not used, is substitute
cleaner of sufficient size?
Lubrication System
1. Is lubricating oil of the recommended viscosity and API
or MIL specification used?
2. Is engine installation angle acceptable?
3. Are dipsticks properly marked for angle of operation ?
4. Are oil drains on engine accessible for oil changes?
5. If an auxiliary oil sump is used, is it properly installed,
provided with vent and drain openings, and correctly
plumbed to the engine oil sump?

Starting System
1. If electric starting is used, are batteries of correct
voltage and capacity for the minimum ambient
temperature expected? Are they located as near to the
starter motor as possible, adequately held down and
protected, and properly ventilated? Are cables
connecting the batteries to the starter motor of the
correct size? Is battery charging provision adequate?
