Feb. 08, 2022

Do you know the correct cleaning method for diesel generator sets? The cleaning of diesel generator sets must be done in place, otherwise it will have a great impact on the generator and must not be ignored. In the process of removing dirt from diesel generator parts, it is generally not limited to a certain method, but a combination of several methods. Therefore, in the process of use, attention should be paid to the reasonable selection of these methods. The carbon deposit usually adopts the mechanical removal method, that is, according to the material of the parts and the surface shape and quality requirements of the parts, different tools are selected. The commonly used tools are shovels, scrapers, copper wire brushes, copper and aluminum metal sheets and sandpaper. For parts with smooth surfaces such as aluminum-copper alloys, care should be taken not to leave scratches when removing, because scratches will make it easier for carbon deposits to adhere and accumulate.

Solvent wiping for grease removal. The solvents used are usually light diesel oil, lamp kerosene, solvent kerosene, washing kerosene, industrial gasoline and aviation washing gasoline. Diesel is used to remove general parts, and the cleaned parts will not rust quickly. For more oil product information, oil product information and oil adjustment technology, please pay attention to the oil product circle on the WeChat public account. However, the evaporation rate of diesel oil is slow, and it should be dried with compressed air as soon as possible after removal to prevent dust pollution in the air; kerosene and industrial gasoline are used to remove precision parts; aviation washing gasoline has strong evaporation and is only used to remove special precision parts. parts. Solvent wiping is easy to operate and has high removal accuracy, but it is not economical enough, and fire prevention measures must be taken when using it.


Chemical removal method, the method steps to remove metal parts by chemical removal method are to select a cleaning solution with an appropriate formula; heat the cleaning solution to 70-90 ° C; immerse the parts in the cleaning solution for 10-15 minutes, and supplement with wool Brush off; rinse with water; dry with compressed air. Rubber, cowhide and other mechanical parts (such as leather bowls, aprons, etc.) should be cleaned with alcohol, not with alkaline solution, otherwise, the rubber parts will swell and deteriorate. For the removal of scale, when the scale is exposed on the surface of the parts, it is generally removed by hand; when it is inconvenient to remove by hand, chemical removal can be used, and the method is to place the removed parts in an alkaline solution (10-15% sodium hydroxide solution) Or acid solution (4-6% hydrochloric acid solution), heat to 60-70℃, soak for 2-3 hours, the scale can be decomposed, and then rinse with clean water.
