Why the temperature of diesel generator sets is very high?

- Aug 20, 2018-


Frequent customers call to ask, after a period of use of diesel generator sets, it is easy to produce water high temperature alarm phenomenon, ask what is the reason?


Through many times of practice, it is proved that this is because the water tank of the generator set has generated scale, blocked its circulation system, and the water in the generator set is not smooth, and the water is high. Then, what is the water tank of the generator set? Will it be blocked?


When using a diesel generator set, the average customer does not pay attention to the instructions of our company, especially the requirements for filling the generator tank with coolant. Never use ordinary tap water or deep well water in the water tank of the generator. Because the mineral content in these waters is relatively high, as long as the generator set is used for a period of time, it is prone to scale. The more minerals, the more scale the water produces. Large, the easier it is to block the water tank.


Therefore, we must add soft water in the water tank, which is what we call pure water. In fact, the best material to be added should be antifreeze, so no matter how long the diesel generator set is used, it will not produce high temperature. Of course, because the diesel generator also has a certain loss to the antifreeze when used, it must also Regularly add antifreeze, and do not keep the tank in high temperature for a long time.


In addition, if diesel generator sets are used in the southern region, it is not necessary to add antifreeze. Just add ordinary pure water, which can save some use costs.


In addition, the water tank of the generator set should be cleaned regularly regardless of whether it is water or antifreeze, so as to avoid debris in the water tank, which is also likely to cause high temperature of the generator set and alarm.
