Is It Good To Add More Oil To The Diesel Generator Set

Nov. 04, 2021

Diesel generator set is a high-pressure injection electronic control engine with high precision parts and high requirements for oil selection. Generally, diesel generator sets should use engine oil above CF level. Some users may think that more oil is better than less oil and often fill the oil more than the specified value at one time. In fact, this is counterproductive. Too much oil may cause the following problems:


1. Adding too much engine oil can easily lead to leakage at the front and rear ends of the crankshaft, increasing engine oil consumption, and at the same time polluting the environment and increasing the difficulty of maintaining diesel generator sets.


2. The oil is easy to foam and deteriorate, which increases the resistance of the crankshaft. In addition, if the oil level is too high, it will hinder the movement of the connecting rod, thereby reducing the efficiency of the diesel generator set.

3. Too much oil enters the combustion chamber, which directly leads to an increase in oil consumption. After the oil is burned, it is easy to form carbon deposits on the piston ring, the valve seat at the top of the piston, and the fuel injection nozzle, causing the piston ring to seize and the fuel injection nozzle to block.


4. If the oil level is too high, it is easy to produce oil and gas under the agitation of the connecting rod, and it will catch fire and burn in high temperature, causing the explosion of the crankcase.


In order to avoid various problems caused by excessive oil, the user should control the oil within the standard range when refilling the oil. After the unit is filled with oil for 2 minutes, stand still for 15 minutes. Check the oil level of the oil pan and ensure that it is placed at the upper and lower limits of the oil scale. Between 1/2 of the scale and the upper scale.
