On previous weeks, we showed you the complete process to carry out engine Overhauls on DEUTZ-MWM gas engines TCG2016V08C, TCG2016V12C and MWM TCG2016V16C (also called CAT CG132-8, CAT CG132-12 and CAT CG132-16).
This week, we show you another complete engine Overhaul (maintenance R3), this time on a gas engine Guascor SFGLD-240 from one of our current customers.
The major Overhaul (maintenance R3) on gas engines GUASCOR SFGLD-240 is performed each 50.400 running hours if they are for biogas (landfill gas, sewerage gas…) applications.
As in other engine brands (for example in case of RS Motor DEUTZ-MWM (CAT) or Jenbacher), on gas engines GUASCOR SFGLD-240 the maintenance R3 is the bigger preventive maintenance of the engine, on which all its main wear parts are changed:
– Replacement of lubricating oil filters.
– Renewal of spark plugs.
– Renewal of ignition cables and ignition coils.
– Standard refurbishment of the turbocharger Mitsubishi (or renewal if necessary).
– Check the engine mounting.
– Check starter pinion and gear rim on the flywheel.
– Recondition of all cylinder heads (in this case 8 cylinder heads). All valve seats, valve springs, valves… are renewed.
– Ultrasonic cleaning machine of the intercooler.
– Replace the cylinder liners.
– Check valves and engine regulating devices.
– Replacement of valve tappets.
– Replacement of thermostats.
– Replace connecting rod bearings.
– Replacement of pistons (complete).
– Visually check of camshaft.
– Replace the camshaft bushings.
– Renewal of the small end bushings and the replacement of the connecting rod bolts in case the connecting rods are within tolerances and parallelism.
– Renew crankshaft sealing rings.
– Measure the crankshaft and clean it.
– Replacement of air filters (primary filter and security filter).
– Replacement of main oil pump.
– Refurbishment of oil cooler with replacement of internal sealing elements.
– Final hydraulic test.
– Primer and painting.
– Anti-humidity packaging for subsequent shipment to the customer’s plant
As you can see, the Overhaul of gas engines GUASCOR SFGLD-240 is similar than the Overhaul of gas engines DEUTZ-MWM (CAT) or Jenbacher. Once you know the steps that our engineers carried out during the maintenance R3 of this gas engine GUASCOR SFGLD-240, we show you few pictures of the previously described maintenance tasks.
