How to ensure reliable generator operation and protect your equipment
Fuel is arguably the most critical component of your emergency power system, yet likely the least maintained, as evidenced by the fact that fuel related issues are the number one reason for 95% of generator fail-to-start faults. Proper fuel maintenance is critical to ensuring your generator will perform its best when you need it the most.
Do you know what’s in your fuel storage tank?
Mark Stellmach, President of New Jersey based Fuel Management Services recently addressed this issue by highlighting these basic points regarding today’s diesel fuel that every facility manager should know:
- Why it’s important to pay attention to stored fuel,
- The 4 major contaminants to guard against, and
- How testing can ensure reliable generator operation.
His article, Diesel Fuel: Don’t Store and Ignore, is a must read for anyone using and storing diesel fuel. It can be found in the March/April Issue of Powerline magazine, a bi-monthly generator industry publication of the Electrical Generating Systems Association (EGSA).
