If you rely on diesel generators to power your business, it is essential to ensure they are operating at their best. In addition to providing diesel generators for rent or purchase, we offer comprehensive diesel generator overhaul services to help extend the lifespan and performance of your equipment.
Signs it’s Time for an Overhaul
There are several signs indicating it may be time for an overhaul of your diesel generators:
- Maximum Allowed Engine Hours Exceeded: Generally speaking, a well-maintained Cummins diesel generator can last for 20,000 to 30,000 hours of standby application before requiring a major overhaul or rebuild.
- Increased Oil or Fuel Consumption: For example, if oil or fuel consumption has increased dramatically, it often occurs due to deterioration in the combustion chamber, valves or piston rings.
- Excessive Exhaust Smoke: If the exhaust smoke from your diesel generator is darker or thicker than usual, this can be caused by issues including worn-out components or a buildup of deposits in the engine.
To ensure maximum reliability and uptime, pay close attention to the operating conditions and hours of use of your generators. Don’t ignore the abovementioned warning signs. Moreover, the service life of your diesel generator can vary depending on several factors, depending on the model, operating conditions, and workload. To get a more accurate estimate of the service life of your generator, be sure to check the manufacturer’s instructions or manuals.
Upgrades for Optimal Performance
For a recent overhaul project, we supplied and changed an industrial silencer to a high-efficiency residential silencer. We also installed a hot air discharge acoustic attenuator. These upgrades significantly reduced noise emissions to 77.5 dB at 7 meters distance at full load capacity, while also ensuring optimal performance. In addition, we offer a warranty to provide our customers with added peace of mind.
Planning for an Overhaul
It’s important to note that genset overhaul takes time depending on complexity, since the engine has to be disassembled and removed for a series of overhaul processes, including inspection, testing, and reinstallation. However, you need not worry about electricity shortage, as we have diesel generators ranging from 25 kVA to 2500 kVA. Renting a genset can be a backup choice to ensure an uninterrupted power supply during the overhaul process.
