Generator Liquid Analysis

Fluid analysis is a vital component for any oil management program. Early detection of potential problems can prevent costly repairs and downtime.

Ideally engine oil should have been in use for about 250 hours before being sampled, and twice the length of time for all other systems. However, it is possible to obtain accurate and meaningful results provided the oil has been in use for no less than 20 hours.

Fuel Polishing

Often we hear of engine downtime caused by fuel starvation due to obstructions. These obstructions can be caused by micro-bacterial (fuel bug) sediment or wax deposits in the fuel supply chain.

What happens when most fuel suppliers will only guarantee their fuel for a period of six months when used in bulk storage and the maintenance regime on a site makes no allowance for regular analysis and inspection of fuel?

The worst case scenario is that a diesel generator system is relied upon to support critical and essential services during a loss of mains power, and is deprived of clean, combustible fuel and fails to start.

In the context of fuel management what benefits are derived from incorporating an automatic fuel polishing feature as part of the overall fuel system?

Fuel polishing features supplied and installed by ADE will:

  • Remove water, a major contributory factor to micro-bacterial (fuel bug) propagation from the fuel
  • Minimise downtime, maintaining normal service intervals on fuel filters by reducing the potential for any blockages by allowing clean fuel to pass more effectively.
  • Increase the fuel efficiency of the engine through cleaner fuel consumption.
  • Improve the engine life span resulting in reduced downtime and lower associated maintenance costs.
  • Avoid costs associated with the replacement and dispersal of contaminated fuel.
  • Ensure the diesel generator system will start reliably when it is needed most.
