MECHANICAL SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE CHECKS

 

Preventive maintenance for diesel engine generators plays a critical role in maximizing reliability, minimizing repairs and reducing long term costs. By following generally recognized diesel maintenance procedures and specific manufacturer recommendations for your application, you’ll be assured that your standby power system will start and run when you need it most.

Vert Energy offers an electric power generation service and support for preventative power system maintenance.
The solution encompasses proactive maintenance, 24-hour emergency service, consolidated invoicing & billing and status reporting from a single service provider.


Generator Set: Monthly Service Runs
Generator sets on continuous standby must be able to go from a cold start to being fully operational in a matter of seconds. This can impose a severe burden on engine parts. However, regular monthly running keeps engine parts lubricated, prevents oxidation of electrical contacts, uses up fuel before it deteriorates, and, in general, helps provide reliable engine starting. The generator set should be run at least once a month for a minimum of 30 minutes loaded to no less than one-third of the nameplate rating. Periods of no-load operation should be held to a minimum, because unburned fuel tends to accumulate in the exhaust system. If connecting to the normal load is not convenient for test purposes, the best engine performance and longevity will be obtained by connecting it to a load bank of at least one-third the nameplate rating.

Why select a national planned maintenance program?
• Peace of mind from a consistent, high-quality program for your entire fleet
• Eliminate administrative burden of managing multiple vendors
• Single point of contact for customer service, maintenance and reporting
• Proactive maintenance management
• Ability to forecast and budget maintenance costs
• Maintain consistent maintenance procedures and schedules
• Increase system reliability
• Maintain factory warranty coverage
