What is wet stacking and what to do about it?

Diesel Generator Wet Stacking P3 Generator ServicesPreventing side effects from diesel wet-stacking
Weekly runs of a diesel generator are certainly important to lubricate moving parts and ensure starting. However, they are typically not run under load and therefore do not allow the engine to reach proper operating temperature. Over time carbon deposits from unburnt fuel will build up in the combustion and exhaust systems of the engine which is identified as excessive black exhaust smoke and will lead to poor engine performance. This situation is known as “wet-stacking” and is the primary cause of diesel engine failure.

Load Bank testing allows the engine and generator to be vigorously run at full load in a controlled environment enabling it to attain maximum operating temperatures which in turn will clear out the ill effects of wet-stacking.

Learn how to clear up the effects of a wet stacking generator.

Do you know the difference?

Each is an essential part of generator maintenance. Knowing the difference is key.

While weekly or monthly load tests are important in verifying whether or not your emergency power system will transfer properly during an outage, a Load Bank is critical to ensuring that the power supplied is sufficient for your building’s requirements and if the generator is in proper health to maintain it for a period of time.

Load Bank – What is it?
