LOWER FUEL OIL CONSUMPTION AND HIGHER RATINGS FOR MAN-B & W FOUR-STROKE ENGINES

The experience of MAN and B & W in developments aimed at troublefree and efficient operation, on heavy fuels, of four-stroke main and auxiliary engines is outlined. Some principles of engine design which should be adopted in the interests of good performance of such engines are listed, and turbocharging, in particular that of the MAN-B & W four-stroke engines, is discussed. Methods successfully used for reducing fuel consumption in these MAN-B & W engines, while obtaining high power-outputs from them, are discussed in some detail. Relevant performance curves, and tables of specific consumption and other data, are included; the tables cover engines ranging from Type 20/27 up to Type 58/64. See also Abs. No. 58580 <Dec. 1982>.
