Re: MaK Dual Fuel Engines / similar subject

Hi John, 

 

The engine will keep its original, full, liquid fuel capability and the existing liquid fuel

system will not be modified. The engine will be equipped with an additional gaseous fuel

system consisting of:

- electronically controlled gas admission valves (one per cylinder)

- gas fuel manifold

- gas pressure regulator incl. shut off valve (mounted off the engine)

- detonation control system and sensors

- temperature and pressure sensors and monitoring system

- electronic control unit

 

Best regards

Thomas

Hi,

 

This is an MaK (electic power) solution and we don't use Adam 3 or Sogav's at this solution.

As the D3516's are no MAK engines it is may better to open a seperate discussion.

Re: MaK Dual Fuel Engines / similar subject

Hello,I’m service engineer for the electric power organisation (CPGS) located in Kiel. We get several equal questions due to dual fuel using at MaK products. Operation of the CM32 on dual fuel is OK, but the preferred fuel would be natural gas. We offer dual fuel conversions carried out by CPGS. The savings are made only if the gas price is significantly lower than the fuel price, as in dual fuel operation, the engine would use 70% gas and 30 % diesel as the burning mixture. The engine power output would be reduced by approx 25%. If you have any further questions please contact Mr.Tony Queen located in Singapore Tony Queen,District Service Manager.PAFE - Singapore.Tel:- +65 6828 7409. Fax:- +65 6828 7284.

Re: MaK Dual Fuel Engines / similar subject

I am interrested in modifying a 3516B engine for heavier fuel blends.  I have read there are a list of publications available ( lekq6107 through 6110) but can't find them anywhere.

can you tell me more about this ( i.e. where can I read this documentation) and summerize parts on engine that  have to be modified.  I guess, injectors must be different from those used on diesel fuel, fuel filters might also be different but what else. thanks for a prompt reply.

 

another question is, what is the difference between a regular 3516 and a marine 3516 engine?

What was the content of that posting ?

 

Was some looking for a Dual-Fuel MAK engine or just a retrofit?
