Ensuring reliable performance from your diesel generator is a key for critical power needs. Let’s explore how two preventive devices – the exhaust temperature sensor and the oil level maintainer – work behind the scenes to maximise uptime!
Thermocouple (Exhaust Temperature Sensor)
When temperature rises inside the exhaust system, the thermocouple’s internal voltage varies. This voltage signal travels to the control panel. The panel then translates the reading into exhaust temperature output. Attached to the exhaust manifold where diesel fumes pass through, the thermocouple for this unit can measure up to 1350°C. This monitoring tool helps you to proactively watch for any abrupt rise in temperatures that could indicate developing issues and to catch problems earlier to minimise downtime.
Oil Level Maintainer
The Murphy LM500-TF Oil Level Maintainer automatically monitors and maintains proper oil levels. It connects from the oil sump at the bottom to the oil makeup tank at the top. Different engine models have varying install positions for oil level maintainers due to distinct oil pan designs. During installation, we precisely measured the engine to mount the maintainer at the ideal height. The LM500 then detects low oil levels and sends signals to the integrated control panel. This allows users to proactively monitor oil levels even remotely.
With the thermocouple and oil level maintainer properly installed and integrated, you now have a powerful solution for preventative monitoring of your generators. Both solutions give advanced warning of potential problems to prevent major failures. If you need further assistance with diesel generator installation, don’t hesitate to contact us!
