MEO Class 4 Oral Questions Function 4B(MEOL)

Are you preparing for MEO class 4 exams? But, not getting enough study materials to start your preparation? Nothing to worry about, in this article I will share a complete set of MEO Class 4 Oral exam questions asked on Function 4B i.e, MEOL.

The full form of MEOL is Marine Engineering at Operational Level. We normally refer to it as Motor. That covers the theoretical part of all machinery in the Engine Room. But, You’ll get a majority of questions on the machinery for which you’re going to be responsible after becoming  4E.

Function 4 MEOL includes but not limited to questions on

  • Main Engine
  • Aux Engine
  • Boilers
  • Purifiers
  • Refrigeration and AC
  • Pumps and pumping systems
  • Compressors and Air system
  • Steering gear and Hydraulic system
  • Fresh Water Generator, etc.

To make it easier for you, I have divided the entire function into various sections. So this will help you prepare for MEO Class 4 Oral exams easily.
