|Improve Reliability of Generator Set|
|Industry trade organizations and manufacturers both agree that a well planned preventive maintenance program is vital to the reliable operation of a standby generator. Load Banks are an essential part of such a program. Load Banks provide a practical means to test the system without interruption to the critical loads.
The primary cause of diesel engine failure is "wet-stacking" ("wet" unburned fuel accumulating in the engine "stack"). It is caused by under-loading of the generator. Diesel engines that are lightly loaded, or allowed to idle for long periods, never reach their recommended operating temperature. Over time, unburned fuel coats the combustion chamber, reducing engine rating, efficiency, and life span. A preventive maintenance plan that includes load testing of a diesel generator set, will reduce the harmful effects of "wet-stacking" and increase engine life.
