When Convenient
Check of Valve Rotation
Many years of experience with the engines in operation
has resulted in a positive development in relation to the
maintenance work for checking the valve rotation of inlet
Changes in maintenance
The valve rotating devices used by MAN Diesel have
proven to be reliable and resistant to failure over their
service life of 24,000 hours.
This has enabled the maintenance work for checking
the valve rotation of inlet valves to be simplified, greatly
reducing maintenance effort.
There is no need for the regular checks of valve rotation at
1,500 operating hours on the medium-speed four-stroke
engines in operation as per the engine type list opposite.
