Carry out maintenance inspections of power generators more efficiently and save time with digital checklists.
An electricity meter is exposed to many different working conditions. To ensure that your electricity generator has a long life span, care and regular maintenance from the generator is essential. Regular maintenance, repairs and monitoring will maintain the peak condition of a generator. Depending on the type of business, an unexpected power failure can have far-reaching consequences, from a simple inconvenience to death.
A generator maintenance checklist is usually conducted by in-house engineers and generator dealers to ensure the following conditions of a generator set:
Reliability - the battery and motor are always in optimal operating condition.
Efficiency - the optimal performance of the generator is maintained.
Lower operating costs - defects and damage are detected early on before they get worse.
To use a checklist for generator load tests makes the work more efficient and saves time. For any generator maintenance the following three points should be observed.
Every 3 to 6 months, start the generator - Diesel fuel decomposes when idling. Therefore it is important to run the generator for a few minutes every 3 to 6 months during maintenance to prevent it from rusting. This also ensures that the generator is in good operating condition.
Check for signs of damage - The housing, fuel system, exhaust system and engine from the alternator must be thoroughly inspected for holes, cracks and fuel or oil leaks during maintenance. It is important that leaks are detected immediately before they become a fire risk.
Regularly clean the generator - Visible dirt, mud, dust and other irregularities must be removed from the generator regularly. This will prevent such elements from interfering with the operation of the generator.
Anyone who relies on paper-based inspections quickly struggles with the problem of missing audit reports and documentation logs. Losing the history of measured values, parameters and damage to a generator is problematic and leads to double work. Replacing paper checklists with a reliable mobile inspection application such as Lumiform can maximize the usability of a diesel generator.
