Two Misunderstandings of Perkins Diesel Generating Set Maintenance

Mar. 16, 2023

We often say that the maintenance of Perkins diesel generator set refers to two aspects of damage repair and routine maintenance: repair refers to the replacement of various parts for the failure of Perkins diesel generator set after the failure occurs, or major repair of Perkins diesel generator set to remove the carbon deposit in the set; In terms of maintenance, it is mainly to replace the three filters regularly to ensure that the various performance indicators of the unit are good. In this maintenance process, Starlight found that many operators would have these two misunderstandings.

First, there are problems in the maintenance of Perkins diesel generator set. Maintenance refers to the replacement of the three filters and no-load test run of the unit on a specified period. From the perspective of replacing the three filters, users basically replace the three filters once a year, and the unit operation hours are the basis for replacing the three filters. From the current maintenance method, the unit operation time is less than 5 hours per year (without power failure), which is far less than the number of hours to replace the three filters, so there is no scientific basis for replacing the three filters every year, At the same time, it also increases the cost of the enterprise.

So how to solve the above problems? Starlight shares with you the latest maintenance methods:

1. Carry out no-load test every month, and the no-load time shall not exceed 5 minutes;

2. Conduct the unit full-load test every quarter, and conduct the power mutation test;

3. Replace the three-filter according to the unit operation time, instead of regularly;

4. Clean and improve the environment of the machine room, and replace the three-filter regularly;

5. After the unit is replaced with accessories, overhauled or replaced with three filters, it must be judged by full load test;

6. Check the four leakage phenomena, surface, starting battery, engine oil and fuel oil of the unit.

Secondly, there are problems in the maintenance of Perkins diesel genset. Maintenance is mainly aimed at the repair of the unit after the failure. After the failure is repaired, there is no effective means to retest the actual load of the unit, and it is impossible to compare the unit before and after the maintenance. Whether the unit can be used normally after the maintenance is uncertain, and the use of the unit after the next power failure cannot be completely free from worries. However, the current routine maintenance can not simulate the operation of the unit after power failure, and the failure can only occur during the operation of the unit after power failure, so the maintenance itself also brings unavoidable losses to the enterprise.

The maintenance work of Perkins diesel generating set is mainly to improve the service life and work efficiency of the generator set. Once there is a problem in the maintenance step, the additional cost will be higher than expected. Therefore, in order to reduce the maintenance cost of the enterprise, the operator must avoid these problems and do a good job in maintenance.

Starlight Power was founded in 1974 and is one of the earliest manufacturers of generators and diesel generator sets in China. If you want get more information, please feel free to send email to sales@dieselgeneratortech.com we will pay highly attention on your question.
