Where Should Cummins Diesel Generator Set Not Be Buttered

Apr. 01, 2022

The cylinder block of Chongqing Cummins diesel generator set produced by Jiangsu Xingguang Power Generation Equipment Co., Ltd. is sturdy and durable. The whole machine has the advantages of low vibration, low noise, stable operation, high efficiency, long life and convenient maintenance. For Cummins generators, correct, timely and careful maintenance can effectively ensure the normal operation of the generator, reduce wear and tear, prevent failure, prolong the service life and reduce the operating cost of the generator. Where can't the diesel Cummins generator set be buttered? Starlight Power Group is here for you to analyze in detail. Oil is widely used on diesel Cummins generator sets. It can protect the body, but it can't be abused, otherwise it will have bad consequences, and even have adverse effects and damage the body.


Buttering the dry cylinder liner of the Cummins diesel generator set will cause the Cummins diesel generator set to overheat and affect the normal operation. The reason is that when the engine is working and warmed up to the normal temperature, the cylinder liner will be heated and expanded, and the cylinder block hole will expand less due to the lower temperature of the cooling water. The outer surface of the dry liner rests on the seat hole to conduct heat dissipation. The coating of grease on the outer surface of the cylinder liner prevents the two surfaces from making good contact, preventing them from dissipating heat properly. Grease the cylinder head and head gasket to strengthen the seal.

After the cylinder head nut is tightened, part of the butter will be squeezed out of the cylinder and wasted, and part of the butter will be squeezed into the cylinder. When the  Cummins diesel generator set is working, this part of the butter will be burned into charcoal at high temperature and accumulated on the top of the cylinder piston. After the temperature of the Cummins diesel generator set rises, the oil film between the cylinder head and the cylinder gasket, the cylinder head and the surface of the cylinder block will melt and disappear due to the increase in temperature, so that the cylinder head nut will be loosened, resulting in air leakage and oil leakage, which directly damages the air cushion, and may also cause the cylinder head and cylinder head gasket to be difficult to disassemble due to high temperature and coking of the butter.


The above is the analysis for you by Starlight Power Group on which parts of  Cummins diesel generator sets cannot be buttered.
