How Often Should the New Perkins Generator Change the Oil

by Starlight Generator dieselgeneratortech

In general, the new engine is 50 hours after the first work and 50 hours after the repair or overhaul. Generally, the oil replacement cycle is carried out simultaneously with the oil filter (filter element). The general oil change cycle is 250 hours or one month. With Class 2 oil, the oil can be extended for a period of 400 hours to be replaced, but the oil filter (filter element) must be replaced.


There are two ways to determine the replacement of oil:


1. Use two glass tubes with a diameter of 0.5 cm and a length of 20 cm to load 19 cm of new engine oil and used engine oil. After sealing, the two tubes were inverted at the same time, and the time of bubble rise was recorded. If the difference between the two is more than 20%, it means that the viscosity of used oil drops too much and should be replaced.


2. Compare the new oil and the used oil to a white filter paper. If there are more black spots in the used oil droplet, it means that the oil has not deteriorated and should not be replaced. If the oil is dark brown, it is deteriorated and should be replaced.


The replacement of Perkins diesel generator oil can ensure the stable use of the generator set, which also effectively extends the service life of Perkins generator set to a certain extent. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the oil replacement time accurately in the process of using diesel genset.
