Turbocharger Cut-off System Benefits Engine Performance

Posted on July 20, 2009

To meet the growing demand for running large container vessels on varying loads, MAN Diesel has developed a turbocharger cut-out system that improves main-engine performance during low-load operation. MAN Diesel’s Turbocharger Cut-Out System lowers main-engine fuel-oil consumption and improves performance during low-load operation. The system includes two, pneumatically operated cut-out valves placed at the turbine inlet and compressor outlet.

Installation of the Turbocharger Cut-out system requires little time and MAN Diesel PrimeServ reports that with the right planning, off-hire can be avoided. Installation during voyages can be carried out by a MAN PrimeServ installation team.
