Hazards of Adding too Much Oil to Cummins Diesel Generator Set

Feb. 17, 2022

As we all know, It is very particular when the Cummins diesel generator set operation. In order to make it run normally and smoothly, many aspects need to be paid attention to when using it. However, in the process of use, we will still ignore some problems. For example, some partners will add too much oil when using it. Then, what will happen to the Cummins diesel generator set with too much oil? What's the impact of cheering up? What is the correct way to refuel?

1. Increase fuel consumption

The amount of fuel used by the Cummins diesel generator set is different, because when too much diesel is added to the Cummins diesel generator set, the excess diesel will easily leak out at the front and rear ends of the crankshaft, which will lead to waste of diesel. , Too much diesel will also pollute the environment and increase the difficulty of our diesel engine maintenance.


2. Increase resistance

When using the Cummins diesel generator set, we are more concerned about the combustion efficiency of the Cummins diesel generator set. When the Cummins diesel generator set is added too much, the extra oil will hinder the movement of the connecting rod and increase the resistance of the diesel engine. This will reduce the working efficiency of the Cummins diesel generator set.


3. Fire and burn

We may have heard of the combustion problem of Cummins diesel generator sets. One of the reasons for this problem is that too much diesel is added, because too much oil will cause the diesel oil level to increase, so it is easy to generate oil and gas under the stirring of the connecting rod. When When the working temperature of the Cummins diesel generator set increases, it will catch fire and burn, and even more, it will cause the explosion of the crankcase, which will be even more terrible.


4. Unit failure

Too much oil is easy to go up to the combustion chamber and be burned, which increases the consumption of oil. After the Cummins diesel generator set oil is burned, it is easy to form carbon deposits on the piston rings, the valve seat on the top of the piston, and the fuel injection nozzle, resulting in the seizure of the piston ring. , injector wall plug, etc.


The above is the summary of Starlight Power Generation Equipment for everyone, what will happen if the Cummins diesel generator set is refueled too much, the influence of excessive refueling of the Cummins diesel generator set, the correct refueling method and the whole content of the precautions, the Cummins diesel generator set should not add too much. Oil is better, because adding too much oil will not only increase fuel consumption, increase resistance, but also cause the Cummins diesel generator set to fail, and even cause adverse effects such as fire.


Starlight Power was founded in 1974 and is one of the earliest manufacturers of generators and diesel generator sets in China. If you want get more information, please feel free to send email to sales@dieselgeneratortech.com we will pay highly attention on your question.
