New test criterion & resulting product solutions from Obel-P
Do not perform the atomising test on slide fuel valves
MAN B&W (service letter SL03-418/JOF)

The slide valve introduced by MAN B&W is now standard on all new MAN B&W engine types and
also the valves are available for retrofit purposes. The introduction of the new slide fuel valves
means that we are confronted with the new test criterion, mentioned above.
To meet this new criterion from MAN B&W, we can now offer 2 new product solutions to
shipowners, ship management companies and engine builders etc.
The atomising test has been part of the normal maintenance practice for a long time and,
therefore, a 100% safe solution is called for!
Consequently we have developed a completely new test pump unit, type VPUD 1000, for new
engines, where the atomising test cannot be executed at all.
For vessels already in service, and therefore already equipped with a test rig, we have developed
an alternative and lower-priced solution, which can be used on any type of test rig not only an
Obel-P test rig! The result is the same as with a new pump unit, i.e. the atomising test cannot be
executed.

Both products have


been approved by
MAN B&W, and
recommended for
testing of all fuel
valves on the MAN
B&W engines.

MAN B&W recommend that the


new pump unit type is also used
for the conventional valves.

The working pressure is shown at the top


line on the display. When the opening
pressure test is performed the result is
frozen and shown on the bottom line on the
display.
The adapter unit is operated with a switch
button. To perform the opening pressure test
it is turned to the right. To perform the
venting function test it is turned to the left.

Can be used
together with
any test rig

The atomising
test cannot be
executed.

When the opening


pressure of the valve
is reached the precise
opening pressure will
be shown on the
display.
