The Average Lifespan of Diesel Generators

Mar. 07, 2024

The expected lifespan of the generator is an important factor when purchasing a backup power system. It is worth mentioning that most industrial companies have equipped diesel generators because diesel generators have countless advantages. From our customer feedback, we can see the advantages of diesel generators.

To start a business, you need a generator that can work in any working environment, especially during power outages. Even if there is no electricity, this generator can still ensure your business is running smoothly. Thank goodness, diesel generators are reliable enough to do this.


Significant contributing factors.


The expected life of diesel generators depends on two main factors: the power of the generator and the maintenance method. Additionally, there are:


Product Brand and Quality


Engine power system


Natural environmental conditions


Next, please follow Dingbo Power to discuss in depth the two factors that affect the lifespan of diesel generators:


Power generation


For the efficiency of diesel generators, power is very important. Therefore, you should determine the load size of the machine planned to operate with the generator.


If you use a generator with a load capacity of up to 90%, there is no doubt that its lifespan will be longer. This ensures that the generator can obtain sufficient combustion pressure at all times to secure the piston rings.


However, using small diesel generators to achieve high loads can also shorten their lifespan. In this special case, insufficient load on the generator will affect the lifespan of the system.


Maintenance work


Whether it is a natural gas generator or a diesel generator, a well maintained generator has a longer lifespan than a poorly maintained generator. Regular maintenance is necessary to keep the generator running for several hours. Don't wait for a power outage before developing the motor. Comprehensive maintenance of the generator includes regular oil or air changes, replacement of fuel filters, and checking for any changes in operation.


Expert reminder: Don't forget to check if your generator will make noise, smoke, vibrate, or consume more fuel than before. This may indicate that there are some potential issues that need to be addressed.


Overall life expectancy


The lifespan of diesel generators can be maintained for at least 15000 hours until maintenance is required. Ultimately, the expected lifespan of any generator depends on factors such as generator selection and preventive maintenance methods.


The lifespan of a generator set also depends on how many hours of operation it operates each year. For example, a generator that operates for 650 hours per year can operate for 30 to 20000 hours. Similarly, if a generator works for a longer period of time in a year, its lifespan will also be shortened.


Understand your generator

The lifespan of a motor depends on factors such as movement and maintenance. To extend the service life of the generator, it is crucial to prioritize its operation regardless of power outage. If the generator is used regularly and regularly maintained, you will find that it can greatly improve the lifespan of the generator.
