How to Remove Carbon Deposits on Cylinder Heads of Diesel Generators

Sep. 16, 2021

In the maintenance of Volvo diesel generators, it always involved the problem of removing carbon deposits on the cylinder head. If the coke attached to the cylinder head cannot be removed, it will cause the Volvo diesel generator to overheat, reduce power, and increase fuel consumption. At present, there are two methods for removing carbon deposits in cylinder heads: mechanical and chemical methods, and the two methods can also be used in combination.


There are many ways to remove coke deposits by mechanical methods, but generally, the coke deposits are removed manually. Remove the Volvo diesel generator cylinder head and place it in a dish containing diesel to soften the carbon deposits in the combustion chamber, and then use a scraper or flat-blade screwdriver to remove the carbon deposits. After the cylinder head is scraped off the carbon deposits, it should be cleaned with diesel or kerosene, and then wiped dry with a wiper cloth, and then other aspects of assembly are carried out.
