Will The Diesel Generator Set Stop If It Is Not Used For A Long Time

Aug. 23, 2022

Diesel generator set is a kind of power generation equipment. Its main principle is to burn diesel oil through the engine, convert thermal energy into mechanical energy, and then drive the generator to cut the magnetic field through the rotation of the engine, and finally generate electricity. Diesel generator sets are generally used as emergency backup power sources in hospitals, hotels, hotels, real estate and other industries.


After most diesel generator sets are purchased, if the mains power supply is normal, then the diesel generator sets are basically unused and in a long-term idle state. The user spends a lot of money to purchase the diesel generator sets in order to "support the troops for a thousand days and use them for a while", so even the diesel generator sets that have been idle for a long time should be regularly maintained.


So, if the diesel generator set is not used for a long time, will it stop? The technician of the generator manufacturer Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. explained: the emergency standby diesel generator set is out of order, mostly because the diesel generator set is in a static state for a long time, and the various materials of the generator set itself will have complex chemical and chemical reactions with oil, cooling water, diesel oil, air, etc. Physical changes are mainly manifested in two aspects:


Diesel generator set

I. The filtration capacity of the filter decreases.

Diesel generator set filter plays a role in filtering diesel oil, oil or water to prevent impurities from entering the body, so the filter plays an important protective role during the operation of the unit. However, these oil stains or impurities will slowly deposit on the wall of the filter screen, resulting in a decrease in the filtering capacity of the filter, and in serious cases, the oil circuit will be blocked. In this case, the diesel generator set will be in shock because the oil cannot be supplied. Therefore, in order to ensure the normal operation of diesel generator sets, Starlight Power diesel generator sets recommend that our customers replace three filters every 500 hours for common units and three filters every two years for standby units.


II. The cooling system water circulation is not smooth.

The water pump, water tank and water pipeline have not been cleaned for a long time, resulting in poor water circulation and reduced cooling effect. If the cooling system fails, it can lead to the following consequences:

1. The cooling effect of the diesel generator set is poor, and the water temperature in the unit is too high, resulting in shutdown.


2. It will cause the water tank of the diesel generator set to leak, the water level in the water tank will drop, and the unit will not work normally.


Therefore, Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. reminds the majority of users that in order to prevent the emergency standby diesel generator set from breaking down, the user should strengthen the daily maintenance of the generator set so that it can be started normally and smoothly when it is needed.


Jiangsu Starlight Power Generation Equipment Co., Ltd. was founded in 1974 and is one of the earliest manufacturers of generators and diesel generator sets in China. The company has a registered capital of 218.88 million yuan. The company covers an area of 86,000 square meters and a building area of 55,000 square meters. There are more than 660 employees, including 456 professional technicians and 106 senior technicians. It has 46 sales and service outlets nationwide. The main products are diesel engines, generator sets, and diesel generators, providing users with a one-stop service of design, supply, debugging and maintenance at any time. Starlight has always insisted on using first-class talents, building first-class enterprises, manufacturing first-class products, creating first-class services, and making every effort to build a first-class domestic enterprise.
