From red alert event to major savings

After operating without any problems for a long-time using Cat® 3412 generator sets, the Egyptian resort began experiencing excessive smoke coming from their machines and we stepped in to resolve the issue.

Oil analysis was conducted using the Scheduled Oil Sampling technique. It revealed a red alert, with high positive fuel dilution and low oil viscosity. Engineers also detailed a Condition Monitoring report.

A service inspection revealed several issues, including a partial fracture on an inlet valve, damage to an injector tip and excessive oil leakage form the turbocharger.

With minimal repairs, we got the generator up and running, eliminating the risk of component failure saving our customer tens and thousands of dollars.
