Slide fuel valves, the latest and environmentally friendly fuel valves, have become mandatory by IMO and are fitted on all modern MAN main engines.
Despite their design and advantages over the old type fuel valves, they are still fuel valves that suffer wear and often need to be overhauled and replaced after a certain period of time. The manufacturer states that every 8000 running hours slide fuel valves should be overhauled and at 16000 hours they should be replaced with new. KIMI has developed an in-house process, called Slide Fuel Valves Remanufacturing offering the series of important benefits listed below:
- Service life restored to 0 running hours
- Performance of the existing slide valves like new
- Cost- effectiveness
- Slide valves NOX reduction efficiency is not impacted
Our engineers in collaboration with our in-house accredited metallurgical lab, our R&D department and our modern manufacturing facilities, have managed to resurrect your slide valves in a “green” way. Already many shipping companies worldwide have benefited since we launched this services in 2011 and the successful track record keeps growing. So staying “green” in a cost effective way is now possible.
