Man Diesel & Turbo Hong Kong Ltd
The MAN PrimeServ work shop is equipped with advanced technologies for repairs on gen sets and two-stroke engines.
MAN Diesel & Turbo has purchased several Chris Marine & IOP Marine products for their workshop in Hong Kong including: WGM, FPT, VPA 1100-5, HON-P & MPI.
The Multi Purpose Induction tool (MPI) is designed for easy removal of worn valve seats from cylinder heads.
The equipment consists of an induction generator which generates a high frequency current to an insulated water-cooled induction coil. The coil is designed to fit a specific valve seat centered on the valve guide and induces a current to the valve seat which is given a rapid heating, and heat is thus generated directly in metal objects.
For use in different applícations such as:
• Valve Seat Removal
• Shrink Fitting
• Spot Heating
Reason for purchase:
The MPI was released in 2012 and MAN Diesel & Turbo Hong Kong Ltd was one of the first companies who ordered it.
The MPI has been in daily use for a about two years, and according to work shop manager Mr. Mos Tsang the main benefit, compared to the traditional methods, is time saving.
Removing seats on 8-9 cylinder heads, normally took the workshop employees an entire day, but now they can do it within an hour. Additionally, the risk for damaging the cylinder head is eliminated by using the MPI.
The MPI is very easy to operate, thus there are 10 engineers in this work shop who can do it.
