Some misconceptions about the maintenance of diesel generator set air filter
July 05, 2022
The epidemic that stretched for several years let people know the importance of the mask, for diesel generator sets, in fact, also has its own mask - air filter, it is like a mask, will enter the diesel generator set of dust and impurities in the air filtered out, to give the engine a good operating environment, the mask needs to be replaced every day, diesel The "mask" of the diesel generator set also requires regular maintenance.
The epidemic that stretched for several years let people know the importance of the mask, for diesel generator sets, in fact, also has its own mask - air filter, it is like a mask, will enter the diesel generator set of dust and impurities in the air filtered out, to give the engine a good operating environment, the mask needs to be replaced every day, diesel generator sets Genset "mask" also needs regular maintenance, today the top Bo power to take you to understand the air filter maintenance tips, take you out of the air filter maintenance misconceptions.
Myth 1: air filter element does not have to clean and replace, can be used for a long time.
This will reduce the air intake, reduce engine power and increase internal engine wear. Air filter is the main role of filter parts, long-term not cleaned or not replaced, air filter internal dust accumulation, once the air filter completely blocked, will greatly increase the air intake resistance, reduce the amount of air intake, causing incomplete fuel combustion, resulting in a decline in engine power, poor economic performance.
If beyond the life of the filter element is still used for a long time, the filter element may break and thus lose the filtering function, a large amount of dust into the cylinder, causing accelerated wear of important parts, dust will also enter the oil sump through the piston ring gap to the lubrication system to bring bad results.
If you work without air filter, the piston and cylinder liner wear increased by 3-5 times, the piston ring increase wear 8-10 times. Therefore, in strict accordance with the technical requirements of the air filter maintenance, its significance.
Myth 2: There is no life limit for air filter element cleaning and replacement, change it when it is dirty or change it again when it is blocked.
The air filter element has a certain design life limit, and its function will be reduced only when it exceeds the service life. The general unit manual has the recommended cartridge maintenance and replacement time.
Normally, Topper Power recommends you to: usually recommend customers to replace it once every 1000 hours of start-up. Generator sets that often work in harsh environments (such as deserts, construction sites, etc.) should be replaced no more than once every 800 hours. And the use of paper dust collection cup air filter, every 50-100 hours of work, to remove the dust once, you can use a soft brush to brush off the surface dust, if the work time exceeds 500 hours or has been damaged, it should be replaced in a timely manner. If long-term use in harsh environments, appropriate to shorten the maintenance replacement cycle.
Misconception 3: Air filter element replacement does not need to use the original parts, as long as they can be installed in the normal use.
The air filter element is designed and matched according to the engine performance and the size of the air filter housing, different materials and sizes will affect the filter performance and air intake resistance. Replacing the filter element whose size or filter material is inconsistent with the original may reduce the filtration efficiency of the air filter or increase/decrease the air intake resistance of the engine.
Not regular maintenance or improper maintenance will bring adverse consequences to the diesel generator set, so users must pay attention to the diesel generator set air filter for timely, correct and careful maintenance, in order to ensure that the unit remains in good operating condition and extend the service life of the unit.
