- Free air holds moisture in suspension , when this air reaches the dew point in the coolers it comdenses.
- If it were allowed to accumulate , it would scrub the lub oil off the cylinder walls , present corrosion problems in the air storage tanks and any related equipment served
- Each cooler is equipped with a purge pot to collect the moisture where it is periodically blown off.
- Modern air systems are equipped with automatic drain valves located at strategic points including storage reserviors .
The electrohydraulic control mechanisms of the ME engine replace the following components of the conventional MC engine: Chain drive for camshaft Camshaft with fuel cams, exhaust cams and indicator cams Fuel pump actuating gear, including roller guides and reversing mechanism Conventional fuel pressure booster and VIT system Exhaust valve actuating gear and roller guides Engine driven starting air distributor Electronic governor with actuator Regulating shaft Engine side control console Mechanical cylinder lubricators.
