MAN B&W Alpha Lubricator System. Start up of Alpha Lubricator System (engine not running)
- To fill the pump station with cylinder oil, open the valves for the cylinder oil supply line and the venting cock (if installed). Close the venting cock when cylinder oil flows out into the venting line.
- Switch on the main switches on the pump station starter panels.
- Switch to “Local” and manually start pump 1 and subsequently pump 2.
Check that both pumps can run simultaneously.
Check that the pressure remains at an acceptable level, also with two pumps running.
Stop the test sequence by pressing (PRELUB) again.
At commissioning or after overhaul of the system, check visually from the scavenge air receiver that all non-return valves inject cylinder oil into cylinder liners.
the Alpha Lubricator System is now ready for normal operation.
