How to Prevent Freezing of Diesel Generator Sets in Winter?

Jul. 11, 2022

In the cold season, we will do a good job of anti-freezing measures. Of course, diesel generator sets also need to do anti-freezing operations to ensure operational efficiency. Next, Starlight Power Generation Equipment will introduce how the diesel generator set performs the antifreeze operation.

1. Only add cooling water after starting. After the diesel generator set is started, the temperature in the engine rises immediately. If cooling water is added at this time, the cylinder block and cylinder head will be rapidly cooled, and cracks will occur due to cold shrinkage.

2. After shutdown, no cooling water is put in. The water in the machine freezes into ice, and the volume increases, causing the cylinder block and cylinder head to burst.

3. When the diesel generator set is operating, the cooling water is lacking or the temperature of the water tank boiler is too high, and the cooling water is suddenly added. Undercooling and shortening of the cylinder block and cylinder head can also cause cracking.

4. The diesel generator set works for a long time, and the temperature inside the machine is high. After parking, the high temperature water is released immediately. It will cause high temperature parts to crack when exposed to cold air.

5. Use the decompressor to stop, so that the high temperature cylinder head suddenly encounters the cold air and causes cracking.

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.
