Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance for generators is crucial to ensure their reliability during power outages and to extend their lifespan. Generators are often used as backup power sources in critical applications such as hospitals, data centers, and industrial facilities.

Preventative maintenance, often abbreviated as PM, is a proactive approach to maintaining and preserving equipment, machinery, buildings, and other assets. The primary goal of preventative maintenance is to prevent equipment failure or deterioration by regularly inspecting, servicing, and repairing items before they break down or become unusable.

Key factors on Preventative Maintenance

Regular Inspections

Perform regular visual inspections of the generator and its components. Look for signs of wear, corrosion, leaks, loose connections and damage.

Fuel System Maintenance

Check the fuel level and quality to ensure that the fuel is clean, free from contaminants, and within its shelf life. Water separators as needed.

Oil and Lubrication

Change the engine oil and oil filter at recommended intervals. Oil changes are critical for the engine's longevity and performance.

Cooling System

Monitor the coolant level and ensure it's at the appropriate level, Also check for coolant leaks or corrosion in the radiator, hoses, and connections.

Battery Maintenance
