Valves play a vital role in controlling the flow of air and fuel into and out of the engine cylinders, and their optimal performance is essential for efficient engine operation. Over time, valves can develop pitting, surface irregularities, and wear, which can lead to various issues, including:
  • Reduced engine performance
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Increased emissions
  • Potential engine damage due to improper sealing
Regular valve grinding ensures that the valves’ surfaces are smooth and properly seated, allowing for optimal airflow, combustion, and sealing. By maintaining the valves in top condition, fleet owners can extend the lifespan of their engines, reduce downtime, and minimize maintenance costs. Traditionally, valve grinding has been performed in specialized workshops or service centers. The process involves disassembling the engine, removing the cylinder heads, and transporting them to the grinding facility. This approach is time-consuming, logistically challenging, and often results in extended downtime for the vehicle or equipment. To address these challenges, Neptunus offers advanced portable valve grinder services. Our portable valve grinders are designed to facilitate precision valve surface grinding on-site, eliminating the need for disassembly and transportation.

Advantage of Portable valve grinding by PVG over conventional approaches
(Lapping and lathe)

Our Method Conventional Methods
Aspect Portable Valve Grinding (PVG) Lapping Lathe
Recommended by OEMs Recommended method Barred by almost all OEMs Commonly used
Purpose Grinding for precise contact between valve and valve seat Removal of pitting & surface damages Grinding for surface finish and precision
Disadvantages – May not match quality of other methods <br> – Time-saving (2-4 hours per valve seat) <br> – Single line contact for increased surface area – Not recommended by OEMs <br> – Time-consuming <br> – Potential for user negligence affecting valve guides and stem life – Thermal cracks possible <br> – Operator-dependent precision <br> – Aging machines may hamper quality
Precision Precise Less precise Precise
Impact on Valve Life Improves valve and valve seat contact for enhanced life May compromise remaining salvage life due to pitting allowances May impact salvage life due to thermal cracks
Contact Area Single line contact for increased contact surface area Diffused contact surface Focused contact area
Time Efficiency Time-saving, typically saves 2-4 hours per valve seat Time-consuming, many hours per valve seat Time-consuming, but varies
Safety and Quality Improved quality, safety, and reliability May compromise safety due to user negligence Quality dependent on operator and machine condition
