At Sorilux we have been offering a commitment to our customers for 40 years and we are a leading company in the distribution and sale of generator sets, spare parts and repair. we continuously work to offer the client what is necessary for their projects and, in addition, we show them how each product we sell works.
Today we bring you the first steps to take to a generator before its first start-up. On this occasion, the generator set chosen for the demonstration is 30KVAs with a Yanmar engine.
On one side, the lower part has the diesel filler cap, the engine oil filter, the diesel pre-filter decanter and the main diesel filter. In that same area, but at the top, is the air filter. And on one side, we have access to fill the engine oil.
Before starting the engine, we have to make sure that it has oil, in this case, in the Yanmar engine, the handle is under the air filter. This should be removed and see that the oil level is between the minimum and maximum marks. We should also check the level of antifreeze in the machine. In this case, being a soundproof unit, in the upper area, it has a cover that gives us access to the radiator cover. The only thing we would have to do is remove the radiator cap and visually check that it has coolant.
Once verified, it is covered again and we would already have the antifreeze check done.
Once the checks mentioned in the previous paragraphs have been made, we can proceed to start up the Genset
To turn on the control unit, all you have to do is put the switch in position 1 and the control unit is already activated. Later, we press the “Start” button and we can start the machine. Before starting the machine for safety, it is recommended that the power switch is in the open position. Once we verify that it is in the open position, we start the machine by pressing the "Start" button.
Once it is turned on, it begins to heat up and after a preset time, the machine will start.
Now, we are going to talk about the values that the switchboard gives us when the genset is running.
We hope this tutorial has been useful. You can view it on our YouTube channel: "How to start a generator correctly - Start Up"
