The water tank of the diesel generator set plays a significant role in the whole body of the generator set.

If the water tank is not used properly, it will cause considerable damage to the diesel engine and the generator, which will cause the diesel engine to be scrapped.

Therefore, how to correctly use the diesel generator set water tank has become a more important topic. Below, henan zheng hair summarizes the following points for your reference.


1. Choose clean soft water.

Soft water usually has rain, snow, water and so on, these water contain mineral less, suitable for engine use.

And well water, spring water and tap water in the high mineral content, these minerals deposition in the tank wall and heated water jacket and the channel wall to form a scale and rust, make the engine heat dissipation ability, easy to cause the engine overheating

The water added must be clean, and the water containing impurities can clog the watercourse and aggravate the wear of the water pump impeller and other parts. If hard water is used, it must be softened in advance, and the method of softening usually involves heating and adding lye (commonly used caustic soda).


2. Don't add water first.

Some users, in order to facilitate the start in winter, or because of water sources, often take the method of adding water after they are started. This method is very harmful.

Dry after starting the engine, because there is no water in the body and engine parts quickly rising, especially the cylinder head and the diesel injector outside the water jacket of particularly high temperature, if the add cooling water, cylinder head and water jacket is easily due to quenching crack or deformation

When the engine temperature is too high, the engine should be unloaded first and then at low speed. When the water temperature is normal, add the cooling water.


3. Prevent scalding when "frying pan"


After the water tank "open the pot", do not blindly open the water tank cover, in case of scald.

The correct way to do this is: idle for a while and then put out the generator. The temperature of the generator is reduced and the water tank pressure drops.

When unscrewing, cover the lid with a towel or towel to prevent hot water and steam from spraying onto your face and body. Don't look down on the water tank with your head. When you twist it, remove it quickly. When there is no heat or steam, remove the lid of the water tank and prevent scalding.
