Operation Method Of Diesel Generator Set In Case Of Water Tank Boiling

Oct. 13, 2022

Perkins diesel generator set has been used for a long time, and some small faults are always unavoidable. When the engine water temperature is too high, the water tank will boil. The user can observe that the radiator or expansion tank overflows violently. At this time, do not open the tank cover blindly to prevent scalding. So what should we do when the water tank of Perkins diesel generator sets is boiling?


1. Do not shut down the engine immediately to avoid burning out the cylinder bed and pulling out the cylinder, which may cause greater damage to the unit.


2. Do not try to open the water tank cover, otherwise hot liquid may spray out and cause burns.


3. Do not pour cold water on the cylinder block and cylinder head of the diesel engine. This may cause the cylinder block of Perkins diesel generator set to burst due to sudden cooling.

4. Unload the engine, let the engine run slowly from medium speed to low speed, and increase the speed after the standby temperature drops to normal.


5. In case of lack of cooling water, soft water such as distilled water and purified water can be added to prevent scaling from affecting heat dissipation.


Don't panic when the water tank of Perkins diesel generator set is boiling. As long as we can operate correctly, it will not cause too much impact on the unit.
