Don’t Let Your Radiator & Cooling System Let You Down

Radiator maintenance is an integral and often forgotten part of the standard generator maintenance.

A lack of or poor maintenance to the radiator and cooling system can cause the engine to:

  • Perform below the intended power output
  • Create excessive wear
  • Degrade the lubricating oil
  • Unit failure







If your radiator is filthy, then you’ve got the wrong people looking after your equipment. It’s so important that you are getting your generator serviced regularly by professionals that know what they are doing.

The Importance of Load Bank Testing

A few weeks ago we were given the privilege of load bank testing 3 x Olympian 165kVA generators. Not only were we able to provide some excellent maintenance to these generators, but we got to spend the day by the sea to do it! Not a bad gig if we do say so ourselves.

Load bank testing is an essential part of diesel generator maintenance. It is a way of validating the correct operational performance and battery life of the generator under load conditions. This allows us to know when batteries need to be replaced and is a great form of preventative action.

It can be compared to test driving a car. You wouldn’t just look at a car, turn it on and agree that it works well. You need to take it for a test drive to ensure that it works properly and to see if any services are required. This is the same as generators. Load bank testing gives us an indication of any actions that need to be taken to maintain the generator.

When was the last time your generators were load bank tested? At PowerGen Australia, our expert team is well equipped to provide resistive and reactive load bank tests to your generators up to 1000kW. We can also take care of all mechanical and electrical labour.

We offer tailored and pro-active maintenance services to suit your budget. Get in touch today for any maintenance on your generators.
