Correct Treatment Of Diesel Generator Set Oil After Water Inflow

Aug. 15, 2023

The diesel generator set has strict requirements for the selection of engine oil. If water is mixed in the engine oil, it may cause the unit to fail to operate normally, or even cause internal short circuit of the diesel generator set, causing serious equipment failures and reducing the service life of the unit. What is the correct treatment method for the diesel generator set after the oil enters the water? Guangxi Dingbo Power Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd. will give you a detailed explanation.


1. If the engine oil of the unit is found to be filled with water and heated in a test tube, if there is slight water in the engine oil and water bubbles can be observed, it indicates that there is water in the engine oil. At this time, we can use the different boiling points of oil and water to treat, continue to heat until the bubbles disappear, the water is completely removed, and then cool the oil to room temperature for continuous use.

2. When the engine oil has emulsified, we can add phenol (carbolic acid) with an oil weight of 1% to 3% to the engine oil as the demulsifier, stir it while adding it, then preheat the engine oil for a period of time, and finally wait for the water oil stratification to completely remove the water in the engine oil.


3. Use the instrument to remove the water in the generator set, pour the emulsified engine oil into the serpentine heating pipe, stop heating with saturated steam through the serpentine pipe, and at the same time, inject air into the instrument to volatilize the water in the engine oil.


Guangxi Dingbo Power Equipment Manufacturing Co., Ltd. reminds users that the diesel oil or engine oil used for diesel generator sets cannot contain water, otherwise it will have a negative impact on the unit. If the engine oil is found to have water ingress, it is necessary to pay attention to it. The water can be removed according to the above methods to ensure a good environment for the unit.
