How to avoid malfunction of the diesel generator set fuel tank

Aug. 05, 2023

According to netizens, some diesel generator sets on the market have different phenomena when they are in use. Different types of diesel generator sets have different fuel tank designs. Dingbo has analyzed the faults of the fuel tanks of different models of diesel generator sets. Summarize the several precautions to avoid the failure of the diesel generator set fuel tank, and then I will explain it to you in detail.

80KW 100KVA CUMMINS Diesel Generator Set

1. The storage location of the fuel tank must be safe to prevent fire. The fuel tank or barrel should be placed in a visible place separately, properly away from the diesel generator set, and smoking is strictly prohibited;

2. If the user makes the fuel tank by himself, please note that the fuel tank of the spare diesel generator set is made of stainless steel or steel plate. Do not paint or galvanize the inside of the fuel tank, because they will chemically react with the diesel, which may cause the diesel generator set. Damaged impurities and reduce the quality, cleanliness and combustion efficiency of diesel;

3. After the fuel tank is placed, the highest oil level should not be 2.5 meters higher than the base of the diesel generator set. If the oil level of the large oil depot is higher than 2.5 meters, the daily fuel tank should be added between the large oil depot and the diesel generator set to make direct delivery. The oil pressure is not more than 2.5 meters. Even when the diesel generator set is closed, the fuel is not allowed to flow into the diesel engine through the fuel inlet pipe or the fuel injection pipe by gravity;

4. The resistance at the oil port is not allowed to exceed the value specified on the performance data sheet of all diesel generator sets when using a clean filter element. This resistance value is based on half the fuel in the fuel tank;

5. The position of the fuel supply pipe end of the fuel tank should be about 50mm higher than the bottom of the fuel tank of the diesel generator set to prevent sediment and water from being sucked into the fuel supply pipe;

6. The connection of the fuel return pipeline should not cause shock waves in the fuel pipeline of the diesel generator set;

7. The fuel capacity in the fuel tank should ensure the daily supply;

8. The fuel supply and return area of the fuel tank should be provided with perforated partitions to reduce the heat exchange of the diesel generator set.

Dingbo summarizes the above eight points and hopes to provide convenience to users. Users can refer it when using diesel generator sets. If any question, welcome to send email to sales@dieselgeneratortech.com, we will very happy to solve your problem.
