Performance of Perkins Diesel Generator Set Shutdown

Mar. 24, 2023

The shutdown of the Perkins diesel generator set is mostly due to the long-term static state of the unit, and various materials of the genset itself will undergo complex chemical and physical changes with engine oil, cooling water, diesel, air, etc., which are mainly manifested in two aspects. Starlight summarized as follows:

The filtering capacity of the filter decreases

The filter functions to filter diesel, engine oil, or water to prevent impurities from entering the engine body, and oil and impurities in diesel are inevitable. Therefore, during the operation of the unit, the filter plays an important role, but at the same time, these oil or impurities are also deposited on the filter screen wall, reducing the filter's filtering ability. If they are deposited excessively, the oil path will not be smooth, In this way, when the Perkins diesel generator operates under load, it will experience shock due to the lack of oil supply (such as oxygen deficiency in the same person). Therefore, during the use of normal generator sets, Starlight recommends that: first, replace the third filter every 500 hours for commonly used units; Second, replace the third filter for the standby unit every two years.

Poor water circulation in the water delivery pipeline of the cooling system

The water pump, water tank, and water delivery pipeline have not been cleaned for a long time, resulting in poor water circulation, reduced cooling efficiency, good water pipe connections, and water leakage in the water tank and waterway. If there is a fault in the cooling system, the consequences include: First, poor cooling efficiency leads to excessive water temperature in the unit and shutdown; Secondly, if the water level in the water tank drops due to water leakage, the Perkins unit may not be able to work properly. (To prevent the water pipes from freezing when using the generator in winter, Starlight recommends installing a water heater in the cooling system.).

Many Perkins diesel generator sets cannot be used as standby power sources without being in standby mode most of the time. Therefore, in order to prevent the above phenomena, strengthening daily maintenance will be the most economical and effective method.
