Generator Maintenance & Fire Pump PM
Our Generator Maintenance & Fire Pump Engine Preventative Maintenance will provide a maintenance program which will be implemented for the purpose of maintaining the emergency standby generator(s) and fire pump engines in the best possible operating condition. These inspections will include:
Level 1 (minor) Service Inspection Cooling System
- Inspect radiator/heat exchanger for leaks, exterior cleanliness and/or deterioration
- Check and record coolant level
- Check and record coolant freeze protection.
- Inspect hoses and connections for signs of leaks and/or deterioration.
- Inspect fan drive pulley and fan for signs of wear or cracks.
- Inspect fan drive belts for signs of cracking or deterioration.
- Confirm jacket water heater is working and record coolant temperature (engine not running).
- Inspect water pump for any indication of leaks.
- Inspect fuel water separator (if equipped), drain any water from water/sediment bowl (if equipped).
- Check and record fuel tank level (if equipped with gauge)
- Visually inspect fuel tank and fuel piping for any indication of leaks.
- Inspect fuel lines and connections for leaks.
- Inspect governor linkage (if equipped) for free movement and signs of wear.
- Record fuel pressure (if equipped) while engine is running.
Air Intake and Exhaust System
- Verify oil level is between “add” and “full” marks on dipstick.
- Inspect crankcase breather and related tubing for sings of leaks or excessive pressure.
- Crankcase fumes disposal tube/piping should be extended beyond radiator to prevent oil mist contamination of radiator core.
- Note and record oil pressure on gauge with engine running.
- Check for any signs of oil leaks.
- Check and record specific gravity reading of each cell (if maintainable).
- Check for proper level of electrolyte in each cell
- Check battery charger for proper operation and record amperage reading.
- Check and record the last date that batteries were replaced. Recommend that batteries be replaced every three years, regardless of condition per NFPA 110 recommendations.
- Verify gauges are operating and record readings.
- Check for presence of any warning lights/alarms.
- Perform lamp/bulb test.
Safety Controls – Check for proper operation of safety devices below:
- High Coolant Temperature
- Low Oil Pressure
- Emergency Stop
Natural Gas or Propane Generator Sets
- Inspect engine gas lines, regulator and carburetor for signs of leaks/corrosion.
- Inspect carburetor and linkage (if equipped) for proper operation.
- Inspect ignition system (magneto/distributor/spark plugs/wires).
Operational Checks with Engine Running
- Check for any leaks or unusual noises.
- Verify proper voltage and frequency via control panel gauges.
- Check for proper air inlet and outlet louver operation (if equipped).
- Visual inspection of generator and environment.
- Check for signs of rodent/insect activity.
Conclusion of Visit/Recommendation
- Control panel: confirm control switch is in “auto” position
- Circuit breaker: confirm breaker is in “ON” position.
- Provide written recommendation(s) for any suggested repairs.
Level 2 (MAJOR) SERVICE INSPECTION PLUS OIL CHANGE
Perform all work required under Level 1 Inspection plus:
- Replace lubricating oil and lubricating oil filters and fuel filters.
- Obtain oil sample (via sample port with engine running)
- Obtain coolant sample and send out for laboratory analysis. (adder predictive maintenance)
