Coolant System Maintenance:

  • Cooling system testing and treatment is standard with a planned maintenance agreement. As coolant hoses age, they crack and split. Replacement of coolant hoses is recommended at least every three(3) to five (5) years to maintain system reliability.
  • Engine block heater inspection and replacement helps ensure your power system will start when cold weather hits
  • Engine belts are wear items that must be periodically replaced. Like coolant hoses, over time belts become brittle, crack and split leading to unexpected failure

Fuel Cleaning and Treatment:

  • Diesel fuel systems are subject to contamination from water, chemical deterioration of fuel over time, growth of organic material and foreign matter accumulation, among other issues. This contamination decreases system reliability, shortens the interval of fuel filter replacement, and can accelerate engine wear.
  • Existing diesel fuel can be tested, treated and cleaned leaving you with a fuel system that is ready to perform.

Battery Replacement:

  • Battery failure is one of the most common reasons standby power systems fail to start.
  • Replacement of your battery every three (3) years increases system reliability

Thermal Imaging:

  • Thermal imaging detects heat patterns or temperature changes in objects. These changes allow the user to discover problems prior to costly downtime.
  • Thermal imaging is employed during maintenance or trouble shooting in order to check electrical connections in circuit breakers, transfer switches and switchgear in generators for hot spots while the generator is operating.
  • Today's thermal imagers have the ability to view live images of heat emitted from equipment and are becoming ever more affordable, making them practical and cost-effective
