The most common points of failure on any generator set is in the starting system or the fuel system.  We recommend a preventative maintenance package where a certified technician performs an inspection twice a year.  CSA282 requires that your generator be Power Generator Service inspected monthly (weekly in health care facilities).  Collicutt offers the entire range of services that follow CSA282.

The new emissions regulations mean that some generators require a diesel particulate filter (DPF).  It is imperative that your generator run under load to be able to regenerate the DPF.  The regeneration process is where the DPF under high heat will burn on/self clean itself.  Every cold start of a generator slowly builds up carbon in the DPF.  Over time, the DPF will become clogged and the generator will either not be able to start or not be able to pull full load.  At Collicutt, part of our regular maintenance is to load bank the generator at full load, this will produce enough heat through the exhaust to begin the regeneration process on the DPF.  If a DPF goes too long with too many cold starts (lightly loaded), the DPF elements will need to be removed and baked to clean the system.
