- Increased efficiency due to the longer length allowed for the flame giving more time for complete combustion. This also allows more heat to be released as radiant rather than convective cutting down the required number of screen wall generating tubes.
- The longer period allowed for complete combustion means that less excess air is required, this has the knock on effect of lowering the Dew Point of the flue gasses.
- Better gas flow.
- Better flame propagation
- Maximum utilization of heat
- Easy maintenance Lower furnace exit gas temperature
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. The Engine Control System of the ME engine comprises: Control units Hydraulic power supply unit Hydraulic cylinder units, including: Electronically controlled fuel injection, and Electronically controlled exhaust valve activation Electronically controlled starting air valves Electronically controlled auxiliary blowers Integrated electronic governor functions Tacho system Electronically controlled Alpha lubricators
