The Function And Correct Maintenance Of Diesel Generator Air Filter

Jun. 17, 2022

The diesel generator set air filter is mainly an air intake device that filters the particles and impurities in the air inhaled when the piston generator set is working. It consists of a filter element and a shell. When the generator set is working, if the inhaled air contains dust and other impurities, it will aggravate the wear of the parts, so an air filter must be installed. Air filters are generally divided into dry filters and wet filters.


The dry air filter can filter out impurities in the air without adding oil. The principle is to purify the air by changing the air flow direction or passing the air through the filter element with micropores.


The filter element of dry air filter generally has two kinds of metal mesh filter element and paper filter element. Generally, after 150 hours of use, these two filter elements need to be cleaned of impurities. After the metal mesh filter element is taken out, it should be cleaned in gasoline and dried with compressed air. After the paper filter element is taken out, the end face of the filter element is generally tapped lightly with a hand or a wooden stick to make the dust and impurities adsorbed on the filter element fall off.


Organic oil is placed at the bottom of the wet filter housing, and its purpose is to use the viscosity of the oil to absorb dust and impurities that enter the air in the cylinder. At present, the wet air filter is more commonly used in diesel engines.


When there is a lot of dust and impurities adsorbed by the wet air filter element, the filter element can generally be placed in gasoline for cleaning and dried with compressed air. After changing the oil, put the dried filter element into the air filter housing.
