(1) Plunger
(2) Valve seat

The boost pressure forces plunger (1) to move down on valve seat (2). The plunger must close against the seat at a pressure of 27.5 kPa (4 psi). When the engine is stopped, the absence of boost pressure allows the plunger to rise to the open position. This allows the condensation from the aftercooler to drain out.

The plunger must be able to move freely in order to close the system when the engine is running. The plunger must be able to move freely in order to allow condensation to drain from the aftercooler when the engine is stopped. Residue from normal engine operation could cause the plunger to stick.


NOTICE

Care must be taken to ensure that fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance, testing, adjusting, and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.

Refer to Special Publication, NENG2500, "Cat Dealer Service Tool Catalog" or refer to Special Publication, PECJ0003, "Cat Shop Supplies and Tools Catalog" for tools and supplies suitable to collect and contain fluids on Cat products.

Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.


  1. Remove the valve from the housing. Check the valve in order to determine if the plunger moves freely. If the plunger does not move easily, clean the valve with solvent.

  2. Reassemble the aftercooler condensate drain valve. Refer to the Specifications, SENR3130, "Torque Specifications".
