How to maintain a diesel generator set that has not been used for a long time to prevent a breakdown? The various materials of the diesel generator set itself will undergo complex chemical and physical changes with engine oil, cooling water, diesel, air, etc., which are mainly manifested in two aspects:

The genset filter is used to filter diesel, oil or water to prevent impurities from entering the genset body, and oil pollution and impurities in the diesel are also unavoidable, so the filter acts during the operation of the genset To an important role.


But at the same time, these oil stains or impurities are deposited on the wall of the filter screen, which reduces the filter capacity of the filter. If there is too much deposition, the oil passage will not be smooth, so that the oil engine will be shocked when the oil is not available when it is running (like Hypoxia), so during normal generator set use, it is recommended: first, replace the three filters every 500 hours for the commonly used units;

The pump, water tank and water pipeline have not been cleaned for a long time, which makes the water circulation difficult, the cooling effect is reduced, whether the water pipe joint is good, the water tank and the water channel are leaking, etc. If the cooling system is faulty, the consequences of the generator set are: first 1. The cooling effect is not good and the water temperature in the generator set is too high to shut down; second, the water level in the water tank is leaking and the water level in the water tank drops, and the generator set will also not work properly. Fortunately, a water heater is installed in the cooling system).

Many generator sets as standby power sources cannot avoid being in standby state most of the time. Therefore, in order to prevent the above phenomena from occurring, strengthening daily maintenance will be the most cost-effective method.
