2 Essential Wear Parts
Essential Wear Parts

Certain spare parts for the two-stroke engine are considered to be Essential Wear
Parts as they are key components that have a critical effect on the performance of
the engine. Our continuous development and focus help us provide our customers
with the best possible product and service every time.

We have a sharp focus on this group of components which share a number of com-
monalities, the overall being a long lifetime. Essential Wear Parts mainly include
large components, and not standard wear parts such as O-rings, which means
that they represent a larger investment. The lifetime is related to the quality of the
components, and the high quality of the parts from MAN PrimeServ ensures an
optimal lifetime.

Features of Essential Wear Parts:

- Key components critical for the performance of the engine
- Long lifetime
- Increased focus internally
- Mainly large components
- Large investment.

Cylinder Liners
Essential Wear Parts

The size and design of this Essential Wear Part re-

quires a high level of technological know-how and
experience within engineering and manufacturing of
these complex components. MAN Diesel & Turbo has
both the know-how and the experience and is there-
fore able to produce our cylinder liners in a high qual-
ity. The design of our liners is based on many years of
service experience and is under continuous develop-

The above combination as well as having the world’s

leading and most experienced cylinder liner supplier,
ensures the highest quality of the products.

MAN Diesel & Turbo has been designing engines for

more than 100 years, and our desire to provide the
best products ensures that the development and op-
timisation never stops. This is reflected in our entire
product portfolio including the cylinder liners.

Features of the cylinder liners

The standard liner surface has a semi-honed profile
that ensures good oil retaining properties, as oil is ac-
cumulated between the plateaus thereby ensuring a
hydro-dynamic oil film.

Spindle Guides – Slide Valves
Essential Wear Parts

Fuel equipment requires extra focus and the spindle

guide is therefore an Essential Wear Part. Many of our
fuel equipment components, and components which
have an influence on the engine emissions, are manu-
factured in-house in Copenhagen to ensure that our
high production requirements are fulfilled. This is done
by using our in-house expert knowledge on precision

Worldwide focus and demand is on reducing fuel oil

consumption and emissions. Therefore, the develop-
ment and optimisation of the spindle guide and nozzle
has a high priority in our R&D department, where ben-
eficial features are continuously developed and tested.

Features of the Spindle Guides – Slide Valves

The spindle guide and nozzle are the main wear parts
of the fuel valve, and they need to be changed at
certain intervals to ensure a good performance. The
combination of the spindle guide and HIP (Hot Iso-
static Pressing) compound nozzle ensures a TBO of
16.000 running hours, thereby keeping the mainte-
nance budget at a minimum.

PrimeServ, we make sure to match the right compo-
nent with your engine and ensure compliance with the
technical file.

Features of the plunger-and-barrel

The function of the plunger-and-barrel assembly is to
deliver the correct amount of fuel oil to the fuel valves
for injection into the combustion chamber. Thus, it
is important to apply the correct plunger-and-barrel
assembly to ensure an optimal combustion process.
This is always the case when buying the components
from MAN PrimeServ.
