Warranty
Use of the approved fluids and lubricants, either under the brand name or in accordance with the specifica­
tions given in this publication, constitutes part of the warranty conditions.
The supplier of the fluids and lubricants is responsible for the worldwide standard quality of the named prod­
ucts.
Fluids and lubricants for diesel engine-generator sets can be hazardous materials. Certain regu­
lations must be obeyed when handling, storing and disposing of these substances.
A001064/06E 2016-04 | Preface | 5
These regulations are contained in the manufacturers' instructions, legal requirements and technical guide­
lines valid in the individual countries. Great differences can apply from country to country and a generally
valid guide to applicable regulations for fluids and lubricants is therefore not possible within this publication.
Users of the products named in these specifications are therefore obliged to inform themselves of the locally
valid regulations. MTU accepts no responsibility whatsoever for improper or illegal use of the fluids and lubri­
cants which it has approved.
MTU Onsite Energy recommends consultation with the suppliers of all fluids and lubricants to request the
relevant safety data sheets prior to storing, handling and using these fluids and lubricants.
Safe disposal
To prevent environmental pollution and infringements of statutory requirements, used fluids
and lubricants must be disposed of in accordance with local regulations.
Never dispose of or burn the used oil in the fuel tank.
The regulations for the disposal of fluids and lubricants differs from place to place. Environmental protection
is one of the fundamental corporate objectives of MTU Onsite Energy. We therefore recommend the recy­
cling of fluids and lubricants wherever possible. If recycling is not possible, MTU Onsite Energy recommends
consulting the local waste-disposal authorities before disposing of fluids and lubricants to determine the best
option. Users of the products named in these specifications are therefore obliged to inform themselves of
the locally valid regulations. MTU accepts no responsibility whatsoever for improper or illegal use of the flu­
ids and lubricants which it has approved.

2.1 Engine oils – General
Dispose of used fluids and lubricants in accordance with local regulations.
Used oil must never be disposed of via the combustion engine!
Requirements of the engine oils for MTU approval
MTU conditions for the approval of engine oils for diesel engines are defined in the MTU standards and avail­
able under these numbers:
• MTL 5044: Engine oils for diesel engines; Requirements
• MTL 5051: Initial operation and corrosion inhibitor oil for internal preservation of engines
Manufacturers of engine oils are notified in writing if their product is approved.
Approved engine oils are divided into the following MTU quality groups:
• Oil category 1: Standard quality / Single and multigrade oils
• Oil category 2: Higher quality / Single and multigrade oils
• Oil category 2.1: Multigrade oils with a low ash-forming additive content (low SAPS oils)
• Oil category 3: Highest quality / Multigrade oils
• Oil category 3.1: Multigrade oils with a low ash-forming additive content (low SAPS oils)
Low SAPS oils are oils with a low sulfur and phosphor content and an ash-forming additive content of ≤1%.
They are only approved if the sulfur content in the fuel does not exceed 50 mg/kg. When using diesel partic­
ulate filters, it is advisable to use these oils to avoid fast coating of the filter with ash particles.
Selection of a suitable engine oil is based on fuel quality, projected oil drain interval and on-site climatic con­
ditions. At present there is no international industrial standard which alone takes into account all these crite­
ria.
The use of engine oils not approved by MTU can mean that statutory emission limits can
no longer be observed. This can be a punishable offense.
Mixing different engine oils is strictly prohibited!
Changing to another oil grade can be done together with an oil change. The remaining oil
quantity in the engine oil system is not critical in this regard.
This procedure also applies to MTU's own engine oils in the regions Europe, Middle East,
Africa, America and Asia.
TIM-ID: 0000060885 - 002
When changing to an engine oil in Category 3, note that the improved cleaning effect of
these engine oils can result in the loosening of engine contaminants (e.g. carbon depos­
its).
It may be necessary therefore to reduce the oil change interval and oil filter service life
(one time during change).

Selection of viscosity grades
Selection of the viscosity grade is based primarily on the ambient temperature at which the engine is to be
started and operated. If the relevant performance criteria are observed the engines can be operated both
with single grade and multigrade oils, depending on the application. Guide values for the temperature limits
of the individual viscosity classes, see (→ Figure 1).
If the prevailing temperature is too low, the engine oil must be preheated.
Figure 1: Viscosity grade chart
Oil drain intervals for diesel engines
Engine oil drain intervals depend on the engine-oil quality, its conditioning, the operating conditions and the
fuel used.
The intervals quoted (Table) are guide values based on operational experience and are valid for applications
with a standard load profile.

The oil drain intervals in the table (→ Table 1) are recommended guide values when using diesel fuels with
< 0.5 % sulfur content. The defined limit values for the used oil (→ Table 2) must be observed. The numbers
of operating hours quoted for oils must be confirmed by means of oil analysis.
A001064/06E 2016-04 | Lubricants | 9
The oil drain intervals must be determined by oil analysis if one or more of the following difficult operating
conditions are encountered:
• Extreme climatic conditions
• High engine startup frequency
• Frequent and prolonged idling or low-load operation
• High fuel sulfur content of 0.5 to 1.5% by weight (see "Use of High-Sulfur Fuel")
For applications involving low runtimes, the engine oil must be changed every two years at the latest irre­
spective of its category.
Where engine oils with higher-grade corrosion-inhibiting characteristics are in use (→ Page 13), a change
must be carried out every 3 years at the latest.
In individual cases the service life of the engine oil can be optimized by regular laboratory analysis and ap­
propriate engine inspections in consultation with the MTU service point responsible:
• The first oil sample should be taken from the engine as a “basic sample” after the engine has run for ap­
proximately 1 hour after being filled with fresh oil.
• Further samples are to be analyzed at specific intervals (see "Laboratory Analysis").
• The appropriate engine inspections are to be carried out before and after the oil analyses.
• After completion of all analyses, and depending on the findings, special agreements can be reached for
individual cases.
• Oil samples must always be taken under the same conditions and at the point provided for that purpose
(see Operating Instructions).
Special additives
Engine oils approved have been specially developed for diesel engines and have all necessary properties.
Further additives are therefore superfluous and may even be harmful.
Laboratory analysis
Spectrometric oil analysis
Analysis of the engine oil's additive-metal content is carried out by the MTU laboratory to determine the
brand of oil.
MTU does not generally analyze the oil's wear-metal contents in order to determine the degree of engine
wear. These content levels are very much dependent on the following factors, among others:
• Individual engine equipment status
• Tolerance scatter
• Operating conditions
• Duty profile
• Fluids and lubricants
• Miscellaneous assembly materials
Unambiguous conclusions as to the wear status of the engine components involved are therefore not possi­
ble. This means that no limit values can be given for wear-metal contents.
In order to check the used oil, it is recommended that regular oil analyses be carried out. Oil samples should
be taken and analyzed at least once per year and during each oil change and under certain conditions, de­
pending on application and the engine's operating conditions, sampling / analysis should take place more
frequently.
The specified test methods and limit values (Analytical Limit Values for Used Diesel Engine Oils) (→ Table 2)
indicate when the results of an individual oil sample analysis are to be regarded as abnormal.
An abnormal result requires immediate investigation and remedy of the abnormality.
The limit values relate to individual oil samples. When these limit values are reached or exceeded, an immedi­
ate oil change is necessary. The results of the oil analysis do not necessarily give an indication of the wear
status of particular components.

TIM-ID: 0000060885 - 002
Used-oil analysis
In addition to the analytical limit values, the engine condition, its operating condition and any operational
faults are decisive factors with regard to oil changes.
Some of the signs of oil deterioration are:
• Abnormally heavy deposits or precipitates in the engine or engine-mounted parts such as oil filters, centri­
fugal oil filters or separators, especially in comparison with the previous analysis
• Abnormal discoloration of components.

Use of high-sulfur diesel fuel
The following measures must be taken in the case of diesel fuels with a sulfur content above 0.5%:
• Use of an engine oil with a total base number (TBN) of more than 8 mgKOH/g
• Shorten the oil-change intervals (see Oil change intervals).
Figure (→ Figure 2) shows the recommended minimum total base numbers for new and used oils depending
on the sulfur content of the diesel fuel.

Oil analyses can be carried out using the MTU Test Kit. The Test Kit contains all the equipment required as
well as instructions for use.
The following checks can be performed:
• Determination of oil dispersing capacity (spot test)
• Determination of diesel fuel content in the oil
• Determination of water content in oil

2.4 Lubricating greases
Requirements
The MTU conditions for lubricating-grease approval are specified in the MTU Factory Standard MTL 5050,
which can be ordered under this reference number.
Grease manufacturers are notified in writing if their product is approved by MTU.
Lubricating greases for general applications
Lithium-saponified greases are to be used for all lubrication points with the exception of:
• Emergency-air shutoff flaps fitted between turbocharger and intercooler (see Special-purpose lubricants)
• Coupling internal centering
Lubricating greases for applications at high temperatures
High-temperature grease (up to 250 °C) must be used for emergency-air shutoff flaps located between tur­
bocharger and intercooler:
• Aero Shell Grease 15
• Optimol Inertox Medium
General purpose greases suffice for emergency-air shutoff flaps located before the turbocharger or after the
intercooler.
Greases for internal centerings of couplings
Greases for internal centerings:
• Esso Unirex N3 (stable up to approx. 160 °C)
Special-purpose lubricants
Oil for turbochargers
Exhaust turbochargers with integrated oil supply are generally connected to the engine oil system.

3 Coolants
3.1 Coolant – General information
Engine coolant
Definition
Engine coolant = coolant additive (concentrate) + freshwater to predefined mixing ratio
ready for use in engine.
The corrosion-inhibiting effect of coolant is only ensured with the coolant circuit fully filled.
The corrosion inhibitors approved for internal preservation of the coolant circuit provide proper corrosion
protection also when the medium was drained. This means that after draining the coolant the cooling circuit
must be preserved if no more coolant is to be filled. The procedure is described in the Preservation and Rep­
reservation Specifications for MTU Onsite Energy diesel engine-generator set (publication number
A001071/..).
Coolants must be prepared from suitable fresh water and an MTU-approved coolant additive. Conditioning of
the coolant takes place outside the engine.
Mixing of different coolant additives and supplementary additives is prohibited!
The conditions for the approval of coolant additives are specified in the following MTU works standards
(MTL):
• MTL 5048: Corrosion inhibiting antifreeze
• MTL 5049: Water-soluble corrosion inhibitor
Coolant manufacturers are informed in writing if their product is approved by MTU.
TIM-ID: 0000060890 - 001
To prevent cooling system damage:
• When topping up (following loss of coolant) it must be ensured that not only water but also concentrate is
added. The specified antifreeze and/or corrosion inhibitor concentration must be maintained.
• Do not use more than 55 % by volume (max. antifreeze) corrosion inhibitor. Concentrations in excess of
this reduce antifreeze protection and heat dissipation. Only exception: BASF G206 (special application)
• The coolant must not contain any oil or copper residue (in solid or dissolved form).
• The majority of corrosion inhibitors currently approved for internal coolant circuit preservation are watersoluble and do not provide antifreeze protection. Make sure that the engine is stored safe from frost, be­
cause a certain amount of coolant remains in the engine after draining.
• A coolant circuit can not usually be drained completely, i.e. residual quantities of used coolant or freshwa­
ter from a flushing procedure remain in the engine. These residual quantities can result in the dilution of a
coolant to be filled (mixed from a concentrate or use of a ready mixture). This dilution effect is higher the
more add-on components there are on the engine. Check the coolant concentration in the coolant circuit
and adapt it if necessary.
All coolants approved in these Fluids and Lubricants Specifications generally relate only to the
coolant circuit of MTU engines. In the case of complete propulsion plants, the operating fluids
approvals of the component manufacturer must be observed!
For corrosion-related reasons, it is not permissible to operate an engine with pure water with­
out the addition of an approve corrosion inhibitor!

3.2 Operational monitoring
Inspection of the freshwater and continuous monitoring of the coolant are essential for trouble-free engine
operation. Freshwater and coolant should be inspected at least once per year and with each fill-up. Inspec­
tions can be carried out using the MTU Test Kit which contains the necessary equipment, chemicals and in­
structions for use.
The following tests can be conducted with the MTU Test Kit:
• Determination of total hardness (°d)
• pH value
• Chloride content of freshwater
• Corrosion-inhibiting oil content
• Antifreeze (corrosion-inhibiting) concentration
• Determination of the water-soluble corrosion inhibitor content
Orders for freshwater and coolant analysis may be placed with MTU. Samples of min. 0.25 l must be sup­
plied.
As an additional exhaust gas cooler is installed in the Series 4000-04 and the cooling system is
more sensitive, a regular check of the coolant is very important for trouble-free engine opera­
tion. This check must be carried out annually or after 3000 operating hours and every time the
coolant is filled.
The concentration, pH value and silicium content (only with coolant that contain Si) must be
within the values specified in the MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifications.

3.4 Unsuitable materials in the coolant circuit
Components made of copper, zinc and brass materials
Unless various preconditions are observed, components made of copper, zinc and brass materials in the
coolant circuit can cause an electrochemical reaction in conjunction with base metals (e.g. aluminum). As a
result, components made of base metals are subject to corrosion or even corrosive pitting. The coolant cir­
cuit becomes leaky at these points.
Requirements
Based on current knowledge, the following materials and coatings must not be used in an engine coolant
circuit because negative mutual reactions can occur even with approved coolant additives.
Metallic materials
• no galvanized surfaces
The entire cooling system must be free of zinc components. This also applies to coolant supply and drain
lines as well as to storage containers.
• No copper-based alloys a material with the use of coolant containing nitrite, with the exception of the fol­
lowing to alloys:
– CuNi10Fe1Mn corresponds to CW-352-H
– CuNi30Mn1Fe corresponds to CW-354-H
• Do not use components containing brass in the coolant circuit (e.g. coolers made of CuZn30) if exposed
to ammoniacal solutions (e.g. amines, ammonium, ...) and solutions containing nitrite or sulfide. Stresscorrosion cracking is possible in the presence of tensile stress and a critical potential area. "Solutions"
refer to cleaning agents, coolant and similar substances.
Non-metallic materials
• Do not use EPDM and no silicon elastomers when using emulsifiable corrosion inhibitor oils or other types
of oil introduced to the coolant circuit.
Information:
TIM-ID: 0000052845 - 001
In case of doubt about the use of materials on the engine and add-on components / components in coolant
circuits, consultation with the respective MTU specialist department must be held.

3.5 Fresh water requirements
Conditioning of aqueous corrosion inhibitor and corrosion inhibiting
antifreeze
Only clean, clear water with values in accordance with those in the following table must be used for prepar­
ing the coolant. If the limit values for the water are exceeded, de-mineralized water can be added to reduce
the hardness or mineral content.

3.6 Corrosion inhibiting antifreeze
Corrosion inhibiting antifreeze are necessary for engines without heating facilities and operating in areas
where below-freezing temperatures may occur.
Most of the corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes approved at MTU are based on ethylene glycol.
Exceptions:
• Ready mixture Fleetguard PG XL based on propylene glycol (→ Page 96)
• Concentrate BASF G206 as a mixture of ethylene glycol and propylene glycol
Provided that they are used in approved concentrations, corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes approved by MTU
provide effective protection, see Operational monitoring (→ Page 19).
The corrosion-inhibiting antifreeze concentration must be determined not only in accordance with the mini­
mum anticipated temperatures but with the corrosion protection requirements also.
For the coolant additives approved for the individual series, see (→ Page 23).
Special approval presently in effect remain valid.
Coolant additives containing nitrite must not be used in conjunction with coolers that contain
brass!
Note:
TIM-ID: 0000060891 - 001
• Propylene glycol-based corrosion-inhibiting antifreezes are stipulated for use in some types of applica­
tions. These products have a lower thermal conductivity than the usual ethylene glycol products. This
brings about a higher temperature level in the engine.
• The product BASF G206 is available for use at extremely low temperatures (< -40 °C).
• Flushing with water is required at every change to a different coolant product. For preserved engines (new
engines, field engines, reserve stock engines, etc.), a flushing run must be carried out prior to filling with
engine coolant if the engines were preserved with an emulsifiable corrosion inhibitor. For flushing and
cleaning specifications for engine coolant circuits, see (→ Page 97).
26 | Coolants | A001064/06E 2016-04
3.7 Water-soluble corrosion inhibitors
Water-soluble corrosion inhibitors are necessary at high coolant temperatures or in case of high temperature
drops in heat exchanger, e.g. in coolant circuits in engine of the Series 2000 and 4000.
The watersoluble corrosion inhibitors recommended by MTU ensure adequate protection provided the cor­
rect concentrations are used. The relevant concentration range for use is listed in the section on operational
monitoring.
For approved coolant additives for the individual engine series, refer to chapter "Approved cool­
ants" (→ Page 23).
Special arrangements presently in effect remain valid.
Coolant additives containing nitrite must not be used in conjunction with coolers that contain
brass!
TIM-ID: 0000060893 - 001
Flushing with water is required at every change to a different coolant product. For preserved engines (new
engines, field engines, reserve stock engines, etc.), a flushing run must be carried out prior to filling with
engine coolant if the engines were preserved with an emulsifiable corrosion inhibitor. The necessary work is
described in the chapter "Flushing and cleaning specifications for engine coolant circuits" (→ Page 97).

4 Liquid Fuels
4.1 Diesel fuels – General
Dispose of used fluids and lubricants in accordance with local regulations.
Used oil must never be disposed of via the combustion engine!
Selection of a suitable diesel fuel
The quality of the fuel is very important for satisfactory engine performance, long engine service life and ac­
ceptable exhaust emission levels.
Diesel fuels are not available worldwide in the quality required according to (→ Table 10).
The fuel properties depend on many factors, in particular, region, time of year and storage.
Unsuitable fuel usually leads to a reduced service life of engine components and can also cause engine dam­
age.
Further details on fuel qualities, tank care and filtration are available in the publication "Useful information on
fuels, tank systems and filtration" (publication number A060631/..).

Particle distribution for fuels
The limit values named in the table (→ Table 11) must already be observed in the feed between
the last tank before the engine and the prefilter (if necessary, with water separator).
For plants without a prefilter, this refers to the feed between the last tank and the MTU equipment. For the
analysis of the fuel quality, an interface (sample extraction cock) must be provided for sample extraction dur­
ing operation.
For existing plants without an accessible feed, a sample extraction point in the last tank before the MTU
equipment is permissible.
Note:
With poorer particle distribution, it is necessary to integrate further / more-optimized filter stages in the fuel
system to achieve the operational life of fuel filters and components of the injection system.
For the limit values named for the interface, it has been validated that MTU-approved prefilters provide suffi­
cient filtration.
MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH shall not provide warranty cover for damage and impairment to engine caused
by the following usage:
• Fuel grades not approved by MTU (see (→ Table 10), (→ Table 11), (→ Page 38))
• Prefilters not approved by MTU
.

4.3 Biodiesel - biodiesel admixture
The standardized general term "FAME" (fatty acid methyl ester) is used here to designate biodiesel fuels.
General information
• We can make no comment with regard to the level of FAME resistance of the fuel system, which is not
part of our scope of supply.
• FAME is an extremely effective solvent. Any contact with paint, for example, must therefore be avoided.
• The characteristic smell of FAME exhaust, especially during long periods of idling, may be perceived as
unpleasant. The nuisance caused by smell can be reduced by an oxidation catalyst which may be installed
by the vehicle / equipment manufacturers at their own risk.
Our company accepts no responsibility for and provides no warranty in respect of any fault or
damage connected in any way with the use of FAME of a lower quality or resulting from non­
compliance with our specifications on operation using FAME. All resultant irregularities and
consequential damage lie outside our responsibility.
Use of B20 fuels
Information on the use of B20 fuels is provided in the publication A060632/.. .
The following engines are approved/not approved for operation with 100% FAME in compliance with DIN EN
14214:2014-06.

A001064/06E 2016-04 | Liquid Fuels | 43
Diesel fuel with a FAME content of max. 7% in compliance with DIN EN 590-04 may be used.
Such fuel may also be used in engines which have not been approved for operation with FAME,
without affecting oil drain intervals.
Fuel
• The fuel must comply with DIN EN 14214:2014-06. Operation with fuels of lower quality can lead to dam­
age and malfunctions.
• Either FAME or diesel fuel may be used. The various mixtures of FAME and normal diesel fuel which may
occur in the fuel tank as a result, present no problems.
Engine oil and servicing
• For operation using 100% FAME, engine oils are to be preferred which comply with MB Fluids and Lubri­
cants Specifications, Sheet 228.5 or Oil Category 3 in accordance with MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifi­
cations. Engine oils in accordance with Sheet 228.3 or Oil Category 2 as per MTU Fluids and Lubricants
Specifications may also be used provided that oil drain intervals are reduced.
• A certain amount of fuel always finds its way into the engine oil via the pistons and cylinders. Its high
boiling point means that FAME does not evaporate but remains in the engine oil in its entirety. Under cer­
tain conditions chemical reactions may take place between FAME and the engine oil. This can lead to en­
gine damage.
• For this reason, engine oil and filter change intervals must be shortened for operation both with pure
FAME and with FAME-diesel mixtures.
• For Series 457, 460, 900 and 500 engines, special equipment is available which facilitates an increase in
the engine oil change intervals for operation with 100% FAME (→ Table 13). This involves fitting the en­
gines with special equipment Code MK21 (special unit pump) and Code MK04 (fuel prefilter with heated
water separator).
Effects on the engine oil change interval with operation with 100% FAME

Table 13:
• Operation with 100% FAME requires shortened fuel filter change intervals. A new fuel filter must be fitted
each time the engine oil is changed.
• Fuel and engine oil must be changed approximately 25 operating hours after conversion to FAME due to
the danger of blockage caused by loosened deposits (FAME has a pronounced cleaning effect).
• Over longer periods, fuel filter service life may be reduced as a result of old residues being carried into the
filter from the fuel system. A special, approved fuel prefilter can be installed as an improvement. This fuel
prefilter with heated water separator is already installed on engines fitted with special equipment Code
MK04.
Engine power and engine standstill
• Due to its calorific value, operation with 100% FAME involves a reduction of approx. 8%-10% in engine
power. This leads to a corresponding increase in fuel consumption as compared to operation with diesel
fuel. Engine power corrections are not permissible.
• Prior to any extended period out of operation, the fuel system must be flushed out in order to prevent
congestion. For flushing, the engine must be operated for at least 30 minutes on FAME-free diesel fuel.
44 | Liquid Fuels | A001064/06E 2016-04
TIM-ID: 0000057609 - 001
The relevant engine oil change intervals must be complied with without fail!
Exceeding the engine oil change intervals can cause engine damage!
Vegetable oils as an alternative to diesel fuel
The use of pure vegetable oils as an alternative to diesel fuel or FAME is strictly prohibited due
to the absence of standardization and to negative experience (engine damage caused by cok­
ing, deposits in the combustion chambers and oil sludge)!
Diesel fuels in winter operation
At low outdoor temperatures, the diesel fuel's fluidity can be inadequate on account of paraffin precipitation.
TIM-ID: 0000057609 - 001
In order to prevent operational problems (e.g. clogged filters) during the winter months, diesel fuel with suita­
ble cold-flow characteristics is available on the market. Deviations are possible during transitional periods
and in individual countries.
A001064/06E 2016-04 | Liquid Fuels | 45
4.4 Heating oil EL
Heating oil differs from diesel fuel mainly because of the following non-specified characteristics:
– Cetane number
– Sulfur content
– Oxidation stability
– Corrosion effect on copper
– Lubricity
– Low temperature behavior
TIM-ID: 0000018623 - 002
If the heating requirements comply with the specifications of the diesel fuel DIN EN 590:2014-04 (summer
and winter quality), there are no technical reasons why it can not be used in the diesel engine
46 | Liquid Fuels | A001064/06E 2016-04
4.5 Supplementary fuel additives
Supplementary fuel additives
The engines are designed such that satisfactory operation with normal, commercially available fuels is ensur­
ed. Many of these fuels already contain performance-enhancing additives.
The additives are added by the supplier as the agent responsible for product quality.
The anti-wear additives and biocides represent an exception(→ Page 47).
Attention is drawn to the fact that the use of diesel fuels or additives other than those stipulat­
ed in the MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifications is always the responsibility of the operator.
Diesel fuels with sulfur content < 500 mg/kg
On Series 362, 396, 538, 652, 595, 956, 1163-02 and 03 engines with cylinder heads not fitted with valve
seat inserts, the use of low-sulfur fuel (< 500 mg/kg) can lead to increased valve seat wear. This wear can be
reduced by the addition of anti-wear additives. The approve supplmentary additives must be added to the
fuel in the specified concentration. The additive must be filled before every refueling.
Microorganisms in fuel
Bacterial attack and sludge formation may occur in the fuel under unfavorable conditions. In such cases, the
fuel must be treated with biocides in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications. Overconcentration
must always be avoided.
The biocides approved at MTU are listed in the table.

Flow improvers
Flow improvers cannot prevent paraffin precipitation but they do influence the size of the crystals and allow
the diesel fuel to pass through the filter.
Certainty is only assured after laboratory testing of the filtering capability.
Required quantities and mixing procedures must be carried out according to the manufacturer's instructions.
48 | Liquid Fuels | A001064/06E 2016-04
TIM-ID: 0000018624 - 002
The effectiveness of the flow improvers is not guaranteed for every fuel.
4.6 Unsuitable materials in the diesel fuel circuit
Components made of copper and zinc materials
The use of components made of copper and zinc materials in the fuel circuit is prohibited. They can cause
chemical reactions in the fuel and thus lead to formation of a coating in the fuel system.
Requirements
Based on current knowledge, the following materials and coatings must not be used in a diesel fuel circuit
because negative mutual reactions can occur even with approved coolant additives.
Metallic materials
•
•
•
•
•
•
Zinc, also as surface protection
Zinc-based alloys
Copper
Copper-based alloys with the exception of CuNi10 and CuNi30 (seawater cooler)

7 Flushing and Cleaning Specifications for
Engine Coolant Circuits
7.1 General information
In the course of time, sludge deposits from aging coolant additives can accumulate in the coolant circuits.
Reduced cooling capacity, clogged vent lines and drain points and dirty coolant level sight-glasses can result.
Below-standard water quality or incorrect coolant preparation can also heavily contaminate the system.
If such conditions occur, the coolant circuit is to be flushed out with fresh water, repeatedly if necessary.
If these flushing sequences are insufficient or if the system is too heavily contaminated, the coolant circuit
and all affected assemblies must be cleaned.
Only clean, fresh water (no river or sea water) must be used for flushing.
Only products approved by MTU or corresponding products at the specified concentrations may be used for
cleaning, see (→ Page 98). The specified cleaning procedure is to be complied with.
Immediately after flushing or cleaning, fill the coolant circuits with treated engine coolant as stipulated in the
current MTU Fluids and Lubricants Specifications. Otherwise there is a danger of corrosion!
Fluids and lubricants (e.g. treated engine coolant), used flushing water, cleaning agents and
cleaning solutions can be hazardous materials. Certain regulations must be obeyed when han­

Shut down engine.
Drain flush water.
Measure pH value of flush-water sample using the MTU test kit or electric pH value measuring device and
compare with the pH value of the fresh water.
a) pH value difference < 1: Fill system with treated coolant and start engine.
b) pH value difference > 1: Fill system with fresh flush water and repeat flushing process.
c) If the pH value difference is still > 1 after 4 to 5 flushing operations: The coolant circuit must be cleaned,
see (→ Page 100). The assemblies may also have to be cleaned, see (→ Page 101).

6.
Remove, disassemble and clean assemblies that are exposed to heavy sludge deposits e.g. expansion tanks,
preheating units, heat exchangers (coolant cooler, oil heat-exchanger, charge-air cooler, charge-air preheat­
er, fuel preheater etc.) and lower sections of pipework.
Before cleaning, examine degree of contamination on water sides.
If greasy lime deposits are found, first degrease the water side.
Deposits in charge-air coolers caused by oil mist can be removed using Kluthe Hakutex 60.
Remove hard lime deposits with a decalcifying product. In the event of stubborn lime deposits, a 10% inhibit­
ed hydrochloric acid solution may have to be used.
Dissolve deposits on and in heat-exchanger elements in a heated cleaning bath. Observe the manufacturer's
specifications and use only approved detergents in the permissible concentration, see (→ Page 98)
Deposits on the oil side can also be dissolved in a kerosene bath.
The dwell time in the cleaning bath depends on the type and degree of contamination, as well
as the temperature and activity of the bath.
7.
Clean individual components such as housings, covers, pipes, sight glasses, heat-exchanger elements with
superheated steam, a nylon brush (soft) and a powerful water jet.
In order to avoid damage:
Do not use hard or sharp-edged tools (steel brushes, scrapers, etc.) (oxide protective layer).
Do not set the pressure of the water jet too high (may damage cooler fins, for example).
8.

10.
11.
12.
After cleaning, blow through the heat exchanger elements with low-pressure steam in the direction opposite
to operational flow, rinse with clear water (until pH-value difference is < 1) and blow dry with compressed or
hot air.
Check that all components are in perfect condition, repair or replace as necessary.
Flush oil and engine coolant sides of heat-exchanger elements with corrosion-inhibiting oil. This step may be
omitted if the heat exchanger is installed and taken into service immediately after cleaning.
After installing all assemblies, flush engine coolant circuit once, see (→ Page 99).
Check coolant system for leaks during initial operation of engine.
TIM-ID: 0000037714 - 004

7.6 Coolant circuits contaminated with bacteria, fungi or yeast
System cleaning
The system cleaner must flow a sufficiently long time through the complete cooling system to ensure effec­
tive cleaning and disinfection.
Therefore, the predefined amount of the approved system cleaner must be added to the contaminated cool­
ant in the system, see (→ Page 98). Use a circulating pump to provide continuous mixture flow through the
coolant system for at least 24 hours or max. 48 hours.
Flushing
After draining the coolant/system cleaner mixture, the coolant circuit must be flushed with fresh water as
long as visible contamination can be detected and until the flush water has the pH-value of the fresh water
(maximum deviation of the pH-values: < 1).
Refill
Before refilling the circuit, make sure the system is free of contaminants.
TIM-ID: 0000019202 - 005
Refill must be performed directly after flushing to avoid the risk of corrosion!
