25 years ago the first generation of electronic PREMET® devices was introduced and it started the success story of the PREMET® Diesel Performance Analysers.

Repairs and calibration for the 1st generation have become very difficult or impossible and a design fault on the PCB does not allow a reliable calibration anymore.

Therefore CMT will stop to support these devices with effect from now. We urge every user of these devices to get in touch with us to discuss how to proceed.












CMT is currently working on a project for the early detection of liner scuffing.
During operation abrasion from unlubricated metal contact can quickly become a great problem with great financial damage. Reports out of the industry are indicating that the number of such incidents may greatly increase with the usage of the new low Sulphur fuels. In cooperation with MAN, Paul Gunton has published an interesting article for Shipinsight regarding that topic. MAN noticed that engines using new 0.5% sulfur fuels show increased liner scuffing.

Since the marine industry has to tackle this problem, we are working on a technical solution for the detection of such events. We are currently looking for trial partners out of the Marine industry and are welcoming anybody to get in touch with us.
If you are interested in becoming one of our project partners, please contact our technical department

For better coverage of Portugal, Spain and Angola CMT has named Atlasmission as our new agent.
Atlasmission will help you with information and recommendations about our products and
will be the sales contact for the above mentioned areas.

The Sulphur Cap has been impacting the Marine industry strongly and countless new unproven fuel blends now are on the market. An article from Exxon Mobil provides crucial information gathered in their MobilServ℠ laboratories. It shows how the first months under the Sulfur Cap 2020 have impacted lab results. According to the newsletter important lube oil and fuel parameters have developed against predictions and can cause massive problems to the operation of vessels.

According to the article from Exxon Mobil:

  • Just 11% of vessels are now operating at the correct feed rate, down from 50% last year.
  • 51% of vessels have cat fines above OEM limits, a 19% increase on 2019.
  • Wear due to cold corrosion was evident in 19% of samples, a 4% annual increase.

Cat Fines

Your solution for detecting Cat Fines levels onboard: Our in-house developed and patented Cat Fines Tester can measure the Cat Fines content in samples with very high accuracy. The digital test provides a real PPM result as needed for the onboard operation.


Reduce costs during these trying times by adjusting the feed rate properly and get information about possible Cold Corrosion. Use CMT´s solutions to detect and quantify cylinder wear levels.

The Oil Doc Conference was held virtually this year. Despite the hurdles that a spontaneous change like this brings with it, we had two successful and interesting days.
We would like to thank the organizers of the OilDoc for this. The switch to a virtual trade fair was implemented well and help was always available.

Our managing director Matthias Winkler gave an interesting lecture on the condition monitoring of grease-lubricated bearings. In addition to this lecture, Mr. Winkler explained in a live workshop which secrets an on-site oil test can reveal.

This time, the personal conversation was only available via a chat or video call, but this was very well received. If you have any questions about the products we were exhibiting, or if you have missed the OilDoc, you can contact our sales department.




Due to the current situation in the world concerning the coronavirus, the OilDoc Forum will be held virtually this year. We would like to welcome you to our digital booth on September 22nd and 23rd, 2020 and invite you to view and listen to the interesting lectures and workshops. CMT´s Managing Director Matthias Winkler personally will hold a live lecture and furthermore a pre-recorded session is available as part of the forum.
In addition to the information provided on our booth, we will also be available for you personally via chat or video call.
All further information about the forum can also be found on the website of the 
Oil Doc Conferenc.

Innovativ durch Forschung 2016 SMALL

CM Technologies was once again awarded by the "Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft e.V." and received the Innovative through Research award for 2020-2021.

CMT is constantly striving to advance the condition maintenance market through current projects. Therefore, we are pleased that our hard work is recognized.

The Maintenance 2020 in Dortmund has set a new visitor record this year. On the 12th and 13th February 2020, more than 5.700 visitors visited the leading trade fair for industrial maintenance. This is an increase of 6% over the previous year.

We are very happy that we were able to contribute to this successful fair. For the 2 rewarding days we want to thank the organizers on the one hand, but the even greater thanks goes to the numerous visitors who were able to learn about the latest technology in condition monitoring at our stand.

The vibration analyzer VA5 as well as the other devices of our vibration measurements help many companies to gain more control over their machines and to detect damage in time.

The International Bunkering Industry Association has released a very interesting article in their magazine World Bunkering.

The IBIA is concerned about the general knowledge for the implementation of the IMO 2020 regulations and the coherent increasing use of low sulfur fuels. The fuels are produced to be stable against asphaltenic sludge but mixing different fuels can relate into sludge build up and damage to fuel oil systems.

During the Presentation of our Managing Director Matthias Winkler on the IMarEST meeting they have learned more about our Compatibility Tester and its efficiency and easy use. The quick test is an easy way to avoid all problems that mixing incompatible fuels can cause. Smooth operation of your engine is no mystery but requires sufficient care.

Furthermore, the handheld PREMET® Devices and the Acoustic Emission Sensor can give even more insight for a trouble-free operation of your propulsion plant.
As the authors of IMarEST said: "For a detailed analysis of problems shown by an online system, a handheld system can be useful. Also, the Auxiliary Engines are often neglected when the main engine is monitored online and hence consume more fuel than needed."
The presentation was also commented by Nikeel Idnani, Honorary Secretary of the IMarEST UAE branch as he liked the introduction of "innovative ways of monitoring the complete combustion process to reduce fuel consumption and emissions"

To get your sulfur levels striving for the IMO 2050 target a combination of low sulfur fuels and efficient performance is inevitable.

Our managing director Matthias Winkler was part of the IMarEST meeting on the 12th December. He was holding a very requested presentation about fuel oil compatibility and diesel performance measurements especially with regard to the upcoming sulfur limit in the shipping industry. Problems with compatibility have been more recent than ever with the ISO 23263. The presentation or even more the following discussion has shown us, that there are still many questions to be answered.
For further information we have provided a few slides of the presentation for you:
