Under What Circumstances Need To Replace Diesel Generator Oil

Aug. 05, 2021

Engine oil plays an important role in diesel generator sets, so in the process of using diesel generator sets, you must check the oil usage in time and replace new engine oil in time to ensure the normal operation of diesel generator sets. The oil change of diesel generator sets is divided into normal conditions and abnormal conditions. The oil needs to be changed in the following conditions:


1. Under normal circumstances, a brand new diesel generator set needs to be replaced with new oil after the first 50 hours of operation. This period is mainly the running-in period of the machine. The oil filter should also be replaced when replacing the new oil.


2. It is recommended to replace the new engine oil once the daily operation time of the diesel generator set has reached 250 hours, and no more than 300 hours at most. If the diesel generator does not operate frequently every day, it can also be replaced once a month.


3. The replacement time of the oil is also related to the type and quality of the oil. It can be replaced after 400 hours of operation after adding good quality oil. Because the performance parameters of diesel generator sets produced by different power and different manufacturers are not the same, the oil added is also different, please consult professionals about the specific type of engine oil to be added. The same type of engine oil also has its advantages and disadvantages. A good engine oil will last longer and have a better effect.

4. Abnormal conditions refer to the diesel generator set after being repaired due to faults and when it is not used for a long time, the diesel generator set should be replaced with new oil after 50 hours of operation after repairing due to major faults.


4.If the diesel generator set is not used for a long time, check whether the various indexes of the engine oil are normal before use. The test method is: drop the new engine oil and the engine oil in use on the white test paper, if the oil in use becomes dark brown, it must be replaced in time.


6. Detect the viscosity of the engine oil in use, put the new engine oil and the engine oil in use in two identical glass tubes, seal them upside down at the same time, and record the rise time of the bubbles. If the difference between the rise times of the two bubbles exceeds 20%, it means the oil viscosity has dropped too much, and the oil in use should be replaced.


Warm reminder from Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd., When users choose engine oil, they must choose the appropriate brand of engine oil according to the local season and temperature, and must pay attention to the two indexes of engine oil quality grade and viscosity grade. If you are using diesel in an area with a large temperature difference between morning and evening for the generator set, it is necessary to choose a multi-grade viscosity oil, which can meet the needs of the normal operation of the engine.


Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. was founded in 1974, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jiangsu Starlight Power Group, it is one of the earliest manufacturers of generator sets in China.
