- In air compressors requirement is to discharge the maximum amount of compressed volume of air out of 1st stage cylinder so that maximum cool fresh air should come in.
- If the bumping clearance is more then air left inside stage will be more and at higher temperature after discharge so less mass of air will get inside in the suction stroke now due to this there will be increased suction temperature of air and consequently less work done and reduced efficiency of air compressor.
- Where as in Aux Engine we need maximum air to remain in cylinder head at TDC for better and efficient combustion of the fuel . Thats why enough clearance is provided between piston top and underneath of cylinder head . No danger of contacting or banging of piston to cylinderhead.
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
