Reasons for Additional Oil Loss in Perkins Diesel Generator Sets

Apr. 03, 2023

The increased oil consumption of Perkins diesel generators is a headache for many users, and many users have also conducted equipment maintenance, but still cannot find the problem. Today, Starlight will reveal this puzzle to everyone. Generally speaking, if the equipment experiences additional oil loss, it may be due to the following three reasons.

1. Check whether the sealing gaskets at the connections between the engine body of the Perkins diesel generator set and the gear chamber cover, the large plate on the side of the traveling wheel, the rear cover, and the cover are intact, and whether the screws at the connections are loose. If there is oil leakage at the frame position, it is necessary to inspect the oil housing, mainly the front end of the oil housing on the same side as the traveling wheel. Generally, due to the looseness of the base screws, the traveling wheel and the frame angle iron protecting the oil housing collide for a long time under the pulling of the triangular belt, forming a gap, causing oil leakage.

2. The worn valve guide of the Perkins diesel engine leads to additional oil loss in the diesel gensset.

3. Engine wear causes longitudinal pull marks on the cylinder liner of the diesel engine, and the cylinder diameter and piston side clearance exceed the specified value, leading to a corresponding reduction in the supporting force of the piston ring, resulting in dirty oil scraping. Or because the internal support torsion spring in the oil ring is broken, resulting in unclean oil scraping and combustion, making it difficult for the diesel engine to start, emitting blue smoke from the exhaust pipe, and causing serious oil injection from the respirator, resulting in additional oil consumption.

By pointing out the direction for everyone, we can carry out targeted inspections when encountering oil consumption issues, improve maintenance efficiency, and make the equipment operate more smoothly.
