Factors Affecting The Service Life of Diesel Generator Sets

Jul. 29, 2021

How long is the service life of a diesel generator set? In fact, the life span of a diesel generator set also depends on how to use it correctly. If it is maintained and used according to the techniques used, it will directly increase its life span. In this article, the starlight power generation equipment will be explained in detail.

The first thing to clarify is that the wearing parts of diesel generator sets include three kinds of filters: air filter, oil filter and diesel filter. It is necessary to extend the service life of diesel generator set and during use. , It is necessary to strengthen the maintenance of the three filters of air filter, oil filter and diesel filter to give full play to their role.


When installing the air filter, do not miss, reverse or wrongly install the sealing gaskets and rubber connecting pipes, and ensure the tightness of the embeddings. The paper dust cup air filter must be cleaned every 50-100 hours of operation. The surface dust can be removed with a soft brush. If the working time exceeds 500 hours or is damaged, it should be replaced in time. When using an oil-bath air filter, clean the filter element with clean diesel and replace the oil in it every 100-200 hours of work. If the filter element is broken, it needs to be replaced immediately, and pay attention to adding oil as required during use.


If the oil filter is not maintained in time during the use of the diesel generator set, the filter element will be blocked, the oil pressure will increase, the safety valve will open, and the lubricating oil will flow directly into the main oil passage, which will aggravate the wear of the lubricating surface and affect the service life of the diesel generator set. Therefore, the oil filter must be cleaned every 180-200 hours of work. If it is damaged, it should be replaced immediately to prevent impurities from entering the lubricating surface.


When the diesel generator sets are used in seasons, the crankcase and the lubricating surfaces should also be cleaned. The method is to mix engine oil, kerosene and diesel oil as washing oil. After the engine oil is discharged, the washing oil can be added for cleaning. Then, the diesel generator set runs at low speed for 3-5 Minutes, then drain the washing oil and add new engine oil.


The various fuel filters in the fuel supply system should be cleaned of debris once every 100-200 hours of work, and the fuel tank and various fuel pipelines should be thoroughly cleaned. When cleaning the filter element and seals, you should be especially careful, and if they are damaged, they need to be replaced in time. When changing the oil during the seasonal transition, all parts of the entire fuel supply system should be cleaned. The diesel used should meet the seasonal requirements and undergo a 48-hour sedimentation purification treatment.


Note: Air filter, oil filter and fuel filter are vulnerable parts. When used for more than 500 hours, they must be replaced with new ones. In this way, the service life of diesel generator sets can be better extended.
