One of the main activities carried out by Rs Motor is the performance of preventive maintenance steps included in the scope of the Manufacturer’s Maintenance Plans.

Overhaul of Jenbacher engines, Deutz-Mwm, Caterpillar, Guascor, Rolls-Royce, Scania or Iveco, are some examples of industrial engine manufacturers on which Rs Motor carries out this type of action.

The technical service of Jenbacher engines is one of the main activities of RS Motor since 2011. In order to give a quick response and to be able to offer the most competitive service to the customer, Rs Motor has a wide range of spare parts in stock.

In addition to all this, RS Motor has in stock reconditioned exchange equipment such as intercoolers, cylinder heads, connecting rods or oil coolers. The availability of this equipment makes it possible to shorten the execution time of preventive works of great scope (60.000 hours, 40.000 hours, 30.000 hours and/or 20.000 hours), making Rs Motor the best alternative to the official service.

This week we are showing you the first of the many comprehensive maintenance jobs that RS Motor plans to carry out this year. This time, it is a 30,000 hours maintenance on a Jenbacher 616 natural gas engine.

The following is a summary of the main tasks carried out in the RS Motor workshop for this maintenance step:

  • Disassembly of all engine block components.
  • Checking for cavitations or damage to the block.
  • Cleaning AND reconditioning of the intercooler.
  • Disassembly of cylinder heads and external mechanical cleaning of the same and subsequent assembly of cylinder heads on the engine.
